dawn and dusk

Well, not exactly dawn, more like almost 8 am,

I had seen frost here in the morning sun a week or so ago, glad I caught some of it.

Then it was time to go in to work… officeout
see that plant there in the window over the porch?

here it is, screen saver from this fractal images site

As winter approaches, the sun is lower in the sky, and it is lower than the building out front, so it streams into the window. There is no shade, so in order to see my computer, I have to resort to my own high tech ingenuity,

My camera travelled yesterday, but poor dh forgot that I told him the charged batteries were in the camera pouch. He got just one picture!  He says it’s a crappy picture, but it’s a beautiful place.

So things have been a bit hectic. I’ve applied and interviewed for a new job. Well, a new position in my office…
no, the information manager. Our info manager left in September, and I’ve been doing parts of her job (as well as my own). I’ll know within 2 weeks. I really want the best person for the program in the position. If that’s me, great, I’ll be happy for the raise and the challenge that will come with some aspects of the job. If not, I’m happy to give away some of my headaches!

So we all know what today was, and the kiddo and I met up with some other folks to trick or treat. Here’s the sky about 5:30 this evening,

I have no good pictures of the kids, they all came out fuzzy. There were 10 sixth graders plus one of the younger siblings… that’s nearly half of the class! They were quite a gang and had a great time. Our neighborhood, near the school, has more houses that are closer together, but they chose this neighborhood (a couple of them live out here, like in the suburbs!). This place looked creepy, but the family is known,

Mario is there, along with a pirate, a prisoner, my mafiosa kiddo at the door, and a bunch of others

The best was the second grader, she looked like she came out of the crypt, complete with gauzy filmy stuff over her outfit.

the booty!

He already gave up about a quarter of it-doesn’t like reeses type things. At some point it will all disappear!

    The frost is gorgeous. You know that sun is going to melt it very shortly as it slants across the lawn.
    And I think DH’s photo is very fine! I’m sure he would have liked to take more, but if you just can take one, wow! How beautiful for the travelling camera.

    I had many blurry Halloween pictures too; the focussing mechanism does not work well in the dark. But I lucked out with a few. All done till next year!

    I took a photo of Attean from very nearly that vantage point back in July.

    I hope you hear soon about the job!! Good luck!

    Ah yes, the frost. Lovely stuff. Better than the snow!

    What neighborhood is that? Is it right in town? We took the boy up and down Fairview Ave and the neighborhood was mobbed with kids!

    Wow, that’s a lotta loot! I’m sure you’ll get to enjoy more than just the Reeces from that pile.

    You’ve got some beautiful pix there. Ah, the rime on the lawn. (I haven’t seen it yet, although Jack Frost did murder our basil the other night.) And that Attean Pond picture is amazing. (If that’s a bad pic, I’d like to see a good one.) It reminds me of Dead River north of Rangeley.

    Ahem you can let the Kid know that I’d be happy to take those Reese’s off his hands…

    Looks like a great time! And thanks for the beautiful photos –
