Ah, the leaves are starting to turn around here, but the temps are still summer like. I'm swimming in our pool every day, but I'm afraid we're going to have to cover it soon, because the nearby apple trees are getting ready to dump their foliage into it, and I'd just as soon not have to scoop it all out of the bottom in the spring.
I've been most busy with a bunch of writing projects lately, one of which has just been posted on the Birds of Vermont Museum blog. Check it out here: http://bovm.wordpress.com/2011/09/15/the-bird-carvers-daughter-part-1-the-early-years/#more-998
I had a blast writing it. A shorter version was printed in the museum newsletter, and there will be another installment in the next issue. I have way too many memories of growing up as The Carver's Daughter to get them all into one. The next one will be called something like: The Teenage Years, or Why I'm NOT a Carver.
