Night Stroll

A few weeks back, DC was nothing but leaves and colors. One of my favorite things about living where we do is that the grocery store is two blocks away. I LOVE walking with my reusable grocery bags up the hill past the library and back down Wisconsin Avenue to the Social Safeway. Yes, it's really called that. Apparently all of the DC Safeway stores have names. Thus far, I only know of two: Social Safeway and the Soviet Safeway in Dupont, called such because its shelves are almost never fully stocked as Dupont is one of the busiest areas in the city.

Anyway, here is some color from our street that I snapped on one of my grocery trips:

In keeping with the subject of walking, Michael and I often take walks after dinner. It gets us out of the apartment, gives Michael a nice study break, and helps our digestion. Win win win. We took the camera the other night and although I wish we could boast some photography know-how, we have none. We did have some fun with the night setting though.

Ooooo spooky                

Suddenly the Harry Potter theme song has popped into my head.

Shoot. I think I must go now and read HP. I'm in the middle of book 4, re-reading them all of course. I was one of those Potter diehards who went to the midnight book releases at Barnes and Noble every time a new book came out. My brother read them too -- one time he even tore my book in half because I wasn't reading fast enough on our beach vacation. Unbelievable. 

I didn't plan on writing about Harry Potter at all yet somehow I've done it. And just watched one of my favorite YouTube videos. Oh good grief.


  1. I went to the midnight release parties too!!! Oh how I love Harry Potter.

  2. I love the way your mind works.
