The giant Christmas Eve Cookie may be gone...

...but its legend lives on.


An e-mail OOPS!

I just accidentally deleted an email from a Carrie Pilby reader that was in my spam. I deleted my spam all at once and saw the subject head as it was disappearing. It said "From an interested Carrie Pilby reader" or something similar. It's not in my trash. If that was you, please write again! Sorry about that. Guess I should look more carefully at what lands in the spam folder. I bet I've done this before. Darn.


My favorite outdoor photos I ever took (roughly in order by favorite)

Frozen lake in Hightstown, N.J. Next to Cranbury, my favorite old town.

Binghamton, N.Y.

Nantucket, Mass.

New York City.

Roof of my old apartment in Hoboken, just after a thunderstorm, when marvelous mamatas clouds made a rare appearance.

Pittsburgh, PA

Cranbury, N.J.

Hoboken, N.J.

Near Burlington, VT.

Fairview, N.J.

More from Cranbury. Love these signs.

Hoboken, N.J.

Lower East Side.

Just kinda funny.

Bathroom in an old artists' lofts building in Jersey City. The building was demolished a few years ago. (Okay, this isn't outdoors. Well, might as well keep it for now.)


I just realized I don't have any good fall leaf photos here. I guess there's no specific one that stands out. Also, no snow photos! What's up with that? I'll keep trying.


Things I repeatedly say to my 15-month-old son

1. "That doesn't go in your mouth."
2. "That's not a toy."
3. "You know you're not supposed to touch that."
4. "No, no."
5. "Mommy loves you."

They all mean the same thing.
