Today it is windy. This is not good, because all the leaves are blowing off the trees and our hike will not be so beautiful on Saturday. I am slightly disappointed. That's okay, though, because we've had great luck for 3 years in a row now, so a little bad luck is due. As long as it's not super bad, like running into a bear, or getting injured, or running into an injured bear.
I wish I could post pictures of this hike to share. But that would require me scanning them in, since I am one of the few people on the planet who still uses a camera with (gasp!) film in it. I was considering buying a scanner the other day. I didn't for a variety of reason, mostly centering around the fact that I've been spending lots of money lately and I didn't need to drop $100 on a frivolous expense. Instead, I told E he could buy one for my birthday. He said "No." with no real explanation. I think he already has an idea. That's good because, frankly, a scanner is a slightly boring birthday gift. Maybe I'll spend my annual dividend from the state on that.
I have an idea what E might be getting me but I won't say here because he reads this blog, and I don't want to make him think his idea isn't a good one if it is different. I have his gifts planned out (well, mostly), but again, I won't say that here. Just that I'm excited about his birthday. I love both giving and receiving surprises! Yay for anticipation!
