14. Story time at library is always fun!
15. We try to build our own. This is from last year's since this year we're out of town. A paper sheet, painted handprint leaves, tripod, glitter and lights and voila a tree for the season!
16. Breakfast followed with filtered coffee
17. Our fruit stand needs replenishment.
18. Something green in our shopping cart. (American Girl doll is spending the week with us thanks to Arlington Public Library.)
19. When nature freezes

Previous days are here. Prompts are here.

7. With the sun shining so bright, it was deceiving us of how cold it actually was outside!
8. They say don't air out your dirty laundry for all to see. But there's so much red in my wardrobe!
9 & 10. Joy is.... simple things in life .. daughter reading a book to me so I feel better..
11. There's been a lot of jumping going on in the house.
12. Decoration - Made by my great grandaunt that now adorns my daughter's room doorway.
13. I hear the Metro escalators chirping like birds, roaring like dinosaurs, screeching like eagles.

oh dear. I know I am short vertically challenged but boy did I feel it while riding the metro this morning. Metro is going on its next phase of SafeTrack repairs and we have once again fewer trains and packed to capacity. It's always amusing how folks still insist on big personal spaces, ignoring the need of others having to get to work as well.

I wish I could be assertive of my personal space. However, I can never be seen. I was squished between two men who were maybe 6ft tall??!! At least I am tall enough to be seen not to be trampled over by people making an exit.

And that's even more amusing to watch peopole leisurely exit like they are the only ones doing so. /sarcasm  I can understand if they were tourists on a holiday, taking it easy.

Previous days are here...


13. Blooms - My little flower always brightens my day!
14. Freedom of Press seems at stake
15. Toy Reading buddies. Toys are never alone in this household.
16. Sipping hot tea is a treat, while figuring out what to do with useless cash living continents away is not.

"The 2018 United States elections will be held (for the most part) on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. During this mid-term election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested. 38 state and territorial governorships and numerous other state and local elections will also be contested."

So get to work.

Last week, Thursday, D spotted the two candidates on the front page of the newspaper and she followed it with an eye roll and resignation-look: "When will the elections be over and Hillary Clinton win?! Why is Trump still here?!"

And that comes from a 6.5yo. And I am so with her!

21/ You see chipped sidewalk, I see a heart. Stuff like this makes me smile

Since most of our team at work is traveling, we cancelled our conference call this morning. So, especially since it was a gorgeous day, I walked to my yoga class (a mile or so away) and walked home after. The yoga class was tough though. My cold seems to have turned into something else. I just couldn't lift myself up. But I went through the class and it was as always good to be there.

On the way home, I saw the above heart on the ground. It somehow seems like it was purposefully done? But if it was natural - what a wonder! Little stuff that make me smile!

18. Good vibes
No positive vibes today! Someone visiting our office wearing perfume triggered my allergies and misery is keeping me company!

It was funny though. I didn't even smell the perfume on her. I have like a much delayed or non-existent sense of smell!

Our Mac has an update. So, we can download and welcome Siri into our lives. I find it a little nervewraking. Obviously, I don't understand the technology so this whole thing is amusingly scary. I see ads for Amazon Echo? And that means the mic is always on? We hide our webcams (which means we turn it agains the wall) and now we have to have Siri - who's laways there to help?

How strange! :P

13. Gold - D's clock emits a golden radiance that I can't sleep in her room!!
The clock light is more orange than in the picture...found camera doesn't capture the oranges as eyes see it!

8. Orange - Just a bottle that triggers a fun memory from recent trip to India
9. Fava and black Bean soup, orange juice with a pink plate of invisible pasta! My dinner served!

10. Black - it was Columbus Day and we picked up some Indian corn in his honor for all the confusion and pain he caused. Of course, D was excited she got corn from India and was wondering what American corn looked like! So, we call it native corn.

Grey skies just made the day so dull! Didn't stop play but surely stopped the sun from shining through.

I was going to take some pictures of some leaves up a tree. But curry & mango lassi distracted me completely.


I had a delicious kati roll!!!
