The fall dreariness continues. Today I had to get out of the house and away from my desk, which is blanketed by financial paperwork for my taxes. The whoop of joy you hear tomorrow will be me, thrilled that the monstrous task is finished and in the mail. And then I can get back to blogging. I can’t wait to show off what I won last week and the long-sought-for Aran knitting pattern I found on Craigslist (of all places).

The woodland paths were sodden and mucky, but they didn’t stop me. Bonus: I had the trails to myself so I could wander in peace. Even in the gray, pretty flashes of color lightened my step.

ETA: Tonight’s the season 3 premiere of The Walking Dead on AMC. O and I will be cuddled up around a bowl of popcorn to watch. A journalist friend who does television reviewing has seen the first three episodes and tells me they’re action-packed — O’s hoping that means zombie action! Normally I don’t like blood and gore, but for some reason I don’t mind seeing a creative zombie kill, although both O and I hope Rick’s wife Lori gets torn apart soon — she’s so annoying. BTW, did you know that Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick, is British? I didn’t until a few weeks ago — he sure had me fooled.
