October is here. My favorite month is not acting like Autumn, so I'm wondering if November is the new October. Our nights are much cooler but the days? Not so much. And with the horrible fires burning in California, the skies are hardly crisp and blue as they should be. I won't feel sorry for myself because so many people have suffered great loss across our planet, but I just wish we had taken better care of our planet so Mother Earth wouldn't be screaming so loudly.
We went on a wonderful vacation to New York City and it wasn't Autumn there either. It was hot and humid, and we don't do humid. We whined about it but walked and walked, as New Yorkers do, and welcomed the relief of restaurants and museums with their air conditioners drying our brows and clothes.
The last day before we flew out, last Tuesday, the sky was beautifully blue with light clouds. We were on our own that day and so I was able to make it more of a camera day. I was rewarded for waiting. We went to the World Trade Center where I met everyone's friend Daryl. Yes, THAT Daryl. She of http://onthem104.blogspot.com fame. She took us to her office on the 43rd floor and showed us the incredible views she enjoys every day. As you might imagine, Daryl is someone you can talk with for hours, but she had to get back to work and we were heading elsewhere to fit a little more into our last day.
I know I've been absent from my blog for a few months. If you stopped by today, I appreciate your visit. I will try to share more photos from our vacation this week.

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
