Happy Thanksgiving

1-dsc_0041

Thanksgiving means free food, which is spectacular. And if that’s all it involved, I would be happy! But NO, holidays surrounding food must be ruined by shoving socialization into the mix.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I can socialize. I just choose not to, because it’s draining and I have to act like I care. We have to go over to my grandma’s house later today for a great big Thanksgiving get-together. I’m going to have to smile and nod and engage in trivial conversations.

At least there’s going to be food.

I guess Thanksgiving is about, in part, being thankful. So I’m going to make a not-very-heartfelt list of things I’m thankful for. :)

  • Music
  • Bread and jelly
  • People that make me feel like I’m wanted
  • Cool blogger friends
  • Hoodies (I just got a new one, YAYYYY)
  • The colors black and gray
  • Plane tickets to Florida are only fifty something dollars
  • Internet
  • Books
  • Bonfires
  • Forests
  • Stars

It got a little more sincere at the end.

Also: yes, I did take the picture at the beginning. And yes, I like it a lot.

NANO UPDATE: I’ve only got 1k left to go!

Plentiful Pumpkins

There’s this little produce stand close to my house, and I’ve been wanting to take pictures there for awhile now. I got a chance a few days ago. They’ve got tons of pumpkins and gourds and stuff, and I just love it. ☺  I’ve got more pictures, but since I didn’t want to post them all at once (that would be a lot of photos, friend), here are the ones with just pumpkins.

Happy first day of autumn! It’s my favorite season. Some reasons why:

  • Cool weather
  • Warm drinks
  • Pretty leaves
  • Gloves, hats, and hoodies
  • Free excuse to cosplay
  • Yummy fall smells

These are the ugliest pumpkins ever. I’m going to take pictures of the nice orange ones soon.

Crunchy leaves to step on!

The leaves are falling, falling as if from far up,

as if orchards were dying high in space.

Each leaf falls as if it were motioning “no.”

And tonight the heavy earth is falling

away from all other stars in the loneliness.

We’re all falling. This hand here is falling.

And look at the other one. It’s in them all.

And yet there is Someone, whose hands

infinitely calm, holding up all this falling.

Autumn, by Rainer Maria Rilke

What’s your favorite thing about autumn? Least favorite?

Boo Bear ♥

Back in autumn, I took these pictures of my grumpy, fluffy cat Boo (or Boo Bear) playing in some leaves. I just now got around to posting them. ;) Enjoy!

She’s actually pretty hard to photograph. Either she looks blurry because all of her crazy fur is swirling around, or she’s looking the other way. You have to be very patient if you want to get good photos of her. :P

Autumn Leaves — Photography

Where I live, most of the leaves have fallen off the trees already, but I still wanted to share some autumn photos that I took about a month ago.

Are you doing anything fun for Thanksgiving?

I fail at nail polish. It’s not even funny. I can be painting the nails on my left hand and somehow get polish on the back of my right hand. :P
