This picture was taken about two weeks ago. Today, hardly a leaf remains on any of the trees and the breeze has gotten downright cold. You can feel winter in the air, even on the “warm” days where the temperatures reach the 50s.

We just got back from a couple days in Burlington with the boys and Tom’s parents. We went up so the boys could get their dose of shopping at all those stores that teenagers love, with all those crazy shirts and goofy gifts. We also got some clothes and had a good time eating out. We had Thai food at Parima in Burlington and got the treat of a performance by Rebecca Williams. We enjoyed her music and good food.

The boys enjoyed walking Church Street and taking in all the people and all the sights. Overall, we had a good time and everyone seemed happy.
