I know

I'm falling down on my blogging...


And remnants of Adele's mustachio bashio!

(there were like 50 people at the party and rather than worrying about pictures while we were there I just spent time with Adele while I could--- I'll see if I can get some of Derek's photos to share!)

Onset Bay

We drove out to Cape Cod for dinner last night with the PhD and Ddes students from Harvard. It was beautiful!

I could live this way.
They go kayaking, clam and scallop digging, biking... And it's close enough to the city to go down every weekend.

I'm not a bus person.

My new job is in a new neighborhood with less available street parking so I thought I'd give the bus a try. Turns out crazy people take the bus and working people take the train. Little did I know.
In the past week I've witnessed two verbal altercations (both of them were started by people sitting next to me- awesome) a very friendly, fruit-loving drug addict, and an obese woman with an obese baby listening to Monica & Brandy's 1990something duets out loud on her phone... I'm sure there were more but my music was smartly turned up loud enough not to be able to hear them.
So, that said, I only work 3 miles away so running home is my new means of travel! It's such a nice run, see:

This is the view crossing the river. I run by Berklee music school, by Newbury Street, Symphony Hall, the Christian Science Plaza, and MIT. Not a bad run at all. And now I don't have to get up early to run. It's now conveniently built into my day!
When the snow comes, I may be back to bussing it, but for now this is perfect!

Meet Lily!

I'd like to introduce my new little friend, Lily!

She's so sweet and is such a happy baby! Very curious and easy going! I can tell we're going to be good friends!

Her Many Staches!

Adele thinks mustaches are super funny and is having a Mustachio Bashio for her birthday in a few weeks. We spent some time last week cutting out felt mustaches and Adele tried a few on!

My new little friend is doing well and my new job is going swimmingly! Photos to come soon! (I still need to get permission!!)

My Favorite Things

Autumn is just around the corner! I can feel it in the air! It is still warm during the days here, but autumn is coming and it's my very favorite time of the year!
In the spirit of autumn, we went apple picking this weekend!
It was the first picking weened of the season at our favorite Russell Orchards in Ipswich.

We took the hayride out to the orchard from the barn (where we picked up some fresh corn, blackberries, local honey, and delicious cider donuts!)

Some of the apples (depending on what type of apple) grow on short shrubs like these and some are on big trees with low hanging branches.

We got 20 pounds of apples this year!!! There are big, big things in store for them!

All strapped in and ready for the drive home!

We couldn't leave Ipswich without stopping for fried clam bellies! Delicious!!

I'm so glad we have adventures!

And I'm so glad we now have fresh apples!
