I am enraptured with my new iPad Air 2. I take it everywhere, but it's just not as easy to take out and get a picture with a tablet, I'm finding. My phone was in my pocket, and the iPad was in my purse, zipped into a secure place. Although I'll find myself more likely to use it for pictures when it's actually out and in use, for now the cellphone is my camera of choice. But the other aspects of the iPad are wonderful: it's light and easy to use, and MUCH faster than my old iPad. I never thought I'd appreciate the retina display, but I sure do. When I compare the two screens, I realize how much sharper and beautiful my pictures look on the new iPad. I'm very happy with my purchase.

The sun has come out after several days of rain, and it should be nice until late tomorrow night, Wednesday, with Thursday looking like a complete washout. Our hiking day. That will make three Thursdays in a row, and after such a nice dry summer, October and now November have been really wet. If we didn't get another drop of rain, we'd be right at average for the entire year. And we still have two months to go. Well, you know what they say: into every life some rain must fall. Does it always have to be on Thursday, though?
