We've been without a TV for months now, and it has been great. We have a good internet connection so hulu, nbc.com, and youtube (when desperate) have filled the void left without the constant pop culture streaming from our old boob-tube. But, now that fall is here, it's a little hard to keep up with all the new episodes of old favorites (30 Rock, Heroes, The Office) and new favorites (Glee, Community...). Without TV I'm not even really sure what's new and hot. Is Mad Men really good? I've heard it referenced multiple times on the radio. Also, is there a place online to watch the upcoming PBS Ken Burns series on National Parks or do I have to wait for netflix? (Peter just let me know that PBS will be airing it online one day after it airs on TV). Oh, yeah, we have a pile of netflix here, too. I guess we're still pretty much couch potatoes.
Anyway, fall is finally here and I can wear a sweater for portions of the day and I'm happy about that. Peter and FGH went to an apple orchard. We have a pint-sized pie pumpkin for decor and FGH is saying pnkn all the time (he's heavy on the consonants). Our CSA box was plump full this week so our fridge is now bursting at the seams. We had stir-fry last night, giant salads today, and really, we haven't made much of a dent. It will be depressing when the last box is emptied.
Here are some unedited snapshots from today. They're all taken at Como.
