I had a very fun, enjoyable chat on line with [livejournal.com profile] the_marchioness and [livejournal.com profile] adventurat this morning, and it reminded me of how much I missed hearing about what was up: what kind adventures are [livejournal.com profile] semioticwarrior's Thing number 1 and 2 getting into? How is [livejournal.com profile] alysonl's Em getting used to school life? How is [livejournal.com profile] bijoux getting back into life in So. Cal.? And how are the [livejournal.com profile] jennlynnfs's adjusting to the idea of a growing family? Has [livejournal.com profile] the_mongrel left for Indonesia yet? Is she already back? What is [livejournal.com profile] raw_wonders writing now?

I can't begin to express how excited and happy I am right now, to be in this moment, to be in this place. Things have been so wonderful here and I'm delighted to report that the move has been a very good one.

The air was cool this morning; it took me an additional 15 minutes to work up the courage to brave the cold and get out of bed in our sixty-degree apartment (we're still trying to fight turning on the heater). In preparation for our walk to work, I wound a scarf around my neck and wrapped my triple-layered torso in a puffy purple coat, smiling at my darling Dr. J as he teased me.

For all my complaining, I love the invigorating sensation of breathing cold air. Dr. J and I had a lovely walk to work this morning; the trees have commenced their fall fashion show, and I am very happy to see their daringly bold color. The neighbors have put out their carved pumpkins for Halloween. The pumpkins sit on fence posts and porch steps, greeting passersby, and I can't help smiling each time I see one; they're orange! And so adorably happy!

It's been a relaxing day in lab, and I am happy to have the opportunity to tackle a paper that has been haunting me for quite some time now.

Happy Fall.

It's good to see you alive and loving life. I'm glad we got to group chat this morning; it was so much fun!

The cold weather kept me in bed longer than I should've as well. I've been resisting turning on the heat, but gave in this morning as I could feel my house making protesting noises without it. I'm trying to keep it as low as possible, though. I don't think the sudden change in temps helped. :(

I hope you have a happy day in lab today! Next weekend you're off. ;)

C!!! Oh it's so good to see an update from you. I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I'm glad to hear that things are going well. The co-habitation life seems to suit you very nicely. :)

The weather sounds lovely too. CA weather has been erratic and not very fall-ish. We've been hitting the 80's during the day and in the evenings it gets down to the high 50's. I'm secretly envious that you get to see the leaves changing and you get to bundle yourself up in a scarf. :)

Please update more often! Or email or call!! :)

I love these posts, as I mentioned this morning. That was an awesome chat, for sure; it's been FOREVER since I got onto AIM, and I'm resolving to get onto it more often.

<lj user="raw_wonders" is working on a second-novella re: The Princess Who Never Laughed, set in the same world as the first one, which you should've got a copy of. Things sound very good for you, though! YEAH.

I am going to ask you in February if you still "love the invigorating sensation of breathing cold air" ;-)

It was sunny here today. 29ÂșC

Fall is definitely my favorite time of year.

Oh, guess what? Even though I planned my next Boston trip for the Nov 7-9th, I'm actually going to be in town next Tuesday/Wednesday for a recruiting trip. Figured I'd let you know just in case you need a distraction :)
