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.
