We have had a glorious weekend in DC. Skies have been expansive and brilliant, with the only white provided by streaking jets who must find this blank canvas invigorating to paint. The sky is almost as brilliant as the extra hour that was returned to us, courtesy of daylight savings. The combination of additional sleep and happiness-inducing weather does nothing but enhance the mood. So what else can be the next step than to start putting up the holiday decorations to carry this feeling into the upcoming holiday season? We were already starting to get there after visiting the mall yesterday and experiencing the soon-to-be holiday rush that was portended by the Nordstrom half-annual sale in the women's and children's sections. Luckily, it was a quick trip and back home again to relax at home, which seemed appropriate for such a weekend. To that point, it is time to wrap this entry and take a walk in the neighborhood, as such a crisp yet comfortable November day is bound to lead into some sort of foul weather stretch that overtook the region last year. Remember snowmageddon, anyone?
