It's Autumn!
Ah, the Autumnal Equinox! And the promise of autumnal weather (which we've been having) and autumnal sights (trees are looking like the trees in model train sets) and autumnal smells (love the smell of decaying leaves). :-)

Our Grand Adventure today was for the folks and I to go to the Aullwood Apple Festival. Unlike the Troy Strawberry Festival, the featured fruit wasn't present in most of the booths, which was a bit of a surprise. But the various booths had interesting items and lots of food choices.

Dad and I decided to try the "fish boats" that one tent was selling. And while we waited for our food, mom held up the tent for the folks making our lunch - it was so blustery the tent kept threatening to fall over. The fish was excellent. Mom opted to try the lamb chili that another place was selling - that was tasty too. I also had a lemon shake-up, which was mighty tasty. And just because I could, I had the "hot waffle ice cream sandwich" which is just as described. Interesting.

As we were finishing our lunch, big black storm clouds crept over the festival, so we (and half of the folks there) headed to the inside bits. Thankfully, the clouds blew over without raining, so we returned outside to share an apple dumpling a la mode before heading back.

The rest of my day was spent cleaning house and listening to the latest Big Finish Sylv audio, Gods and Monsters. And halfway through that story, I got to watch the latest TV episode, "The Power of Three." Quite enjoyable. I'm gonna miss the Ponds!

Tomorrow is laundry day. And hopefully I get a nice walk in to enjoy our lovely weather.

So! I just got around to hearing Gods and Monsters tonight. What did you think of it? I found it both excellent and devastating. I cried a little, but mostly because of the effect that'll have on Ace. Oh, boy...
