Smell that? It's a change of season!

Tuesday night is choir night in Transcona, and it sure would be nice to be hanging out with old friends right about now.

Fall has finally arrived in the area. It was fantastic to walk out of the house this AM and be greeted by a rush of cool, crisp air. The temperatures are supposed to be in the 70's this week -- still warmer than a fall back home, but a refreshing change from the temperatures we were getting just a little while ago!

I enjoy staying after school to get work done. Especially if I've had a decent day. I just feel productive and in control. Sometimes it's hard to tear myself away at 5 or 5:30. I know that makes me sound like a hardcore nerd, but these days, it's my favorite time of the day.

I finally have a North Carolina driver's license and a NC license plate. It's remarkable at how something so simple as registering your car with the state can turn into a three-week "not today" escapade! And when I finally had the plate in my hands ready to put on my car, do you think that the rusty bolts would come off? So even when all was said and done, there was still one more wrench (quite literally) that I had to thwart! (And for those who read this and think of Eve... She's still the same girl even with the new nameplate.)

My new sofa -- er... chesterfield -- is comfy. And it looks nice in here. I think I'll go spend some quality time on it!

This week's DIVE list:

1. lugubrious -- extremely mournful.
2. arduous -- difficult.
3. lucid -- with clarity.
4. diffident -- shy.
5. gregarious -- social.

is a chesterfield the same thing as a couch? very confused.

Ha ha ... chesterfield. That term will never get old. I swear, that's what we used to call them back in the good ol' 80s! Or at least our parents did. We also had "davenports" in the trailer at the lake, but I'm guessing that's the "fold down into a bed" variety of a chesterfield.

Eve! So glad she's got her official NC plates. Can't wait to see them!!
