* I had a meeting in Burlington all day, and on the way back, I had an hour in the back of a Suburban to enjoy the colors. One of my favorite colors in the whole world happens in a field of soybeans around this time of year. There's a tiny bit of green left from the summer, and the start of the rusty brown that late fall brings. But most of all, it's gold... gold with this greeny, rusty richness. Splendor in the beans.
* Well, I'm still feeling mighty blessed over the whole Eleanor of Aquitaine thing, but I'll try not to dwell on it. ;)
* While sitting in my class today, I heard the distant buzzing of my phone in my backpack. I fished it out, and it was a text from my cousin Cameron... just wanting to see if I'd text in the middle of the school day. It cracked me up. I texted back... he had no way of knowing I wasn't in school. However, I think he WAS... naughty, naughty! I hope he evaded detention. ;) Anyway, it made me smile the rest of the day. Who has better cousins than I do? NO ONE!
