walk in the rain, cream crackers, fall festival

Walk in the Rain: It was a quiet, drizzley grey morning. I took a walk to find the university gardens I'll be volunteering at this week. It was a nice quiet walk, and the gardens were gorgeous: lots of flowerbeds, greenhouses, and insect zoo and a vine-covered cupola. I'm excited to see what I'll be doing there tomorrow.

Cream Crackers: Kind of like Saltines, but more, well, creamy. Tastes great with peanut butter. Enough said.

Fall Festival: Tonight was our complex's fall festival. We ate chili, caramel apples, and s'mores, although they were oven-baked instead of made over an open fire, as it was raining and we had to have it indoors. We also got to paint assorted pumpkins and gourds. My roommate painted a gourd with a red-painted 'head wound' and a single tear, and named it Jack (as in Jack-o-Lantern). On the way out, she slipped down the wet stairs and Jack went flying. A passerby handed her the gourd, but she was finished with it, and threw it at a nearby tree. I'm eagerly awaiting tomorrow, when I will laugh if I see the gourd lying on the ground. But I won't be laughing nearly as hard as we were walking back into our dorm, amused bystanders staring after us.

Sounds like you had fun :). I always enjoy a good party, especially when you get to throw things at those pesky trees.

How exciting that you like my Word Imperfect blog. I'm a bit of a novice so I wasn't sure if I should reply to you on your blog or mine. So I'm kind of doing both. You're my first "real" visitor. The others are all people I've told to visit. So thanks. I'm not sure how you found it but I'm glad you did! Link away. Not sure how to do that but it sounds like a good idea. Thanks again.
