Autumn

It’s hard to believe, but today it was warm and sunny enough to be driving around town with the windows down. Even though it’s November, Baltimore is, as usual, somewhat reluctant to admit that it’s fall and that winter will be on the way soon enough.

Light leaves

The leaves are still hanging on though. And some flowers too….

Fall Flowers

Oh well. At least it’s fun while it lasts…

Update: Like these photos? Now they’re available printed on pillows & totes here on Print All Over Me.

GO VOTE

Today is finally Election Day here in America. About 30 million people have already participated in early or absentee voting in 34 states by mail or in person. Now let’s get the rest of the registered voters out to the polls!

Still unsure of how to vote or waffling? Here’s a tongue-in-cheek opinion about choosing our next president that I happen to agree with:

With that said, the most important part is showing up to your polling place today and VOTING. Ladies, we’ve had the vote for less than 100 years in most states (thank you, 19th amendment and Susan B. Anthony), GO VOTE and make it count.

Not sure about where to find your polling place? Check your state elections board, or get more details about each state here.

Interested in the results of the election but are outside of the U.S. and/or without a tv? You can follow along on CNN’s website here.

Halloween

This year, thanks to Superstorm Sandy, Halloween festivities were rescheduled in my neighborhood. As it turned out, many adults celebrated in costume the weekend before the storm so this year we get to enjoy TWO Halloweens in Baltimore.

A few years ago, I posted other fun old cartoons that make me happy and remind me of Halloween. You can check them out here.

How about you, readers? Did you dress up for Halloween, carve pumpkins or take a little one trick-or-treating?
