I had a lovely, neighborhood sort of Saturday. Mr. Darcy and I did a variety of errands together on foot during a gorgeous November day when the weather was mid 60's and mostly sunny with lots of color still left on the trees.
I got suddenly hungry partway through, so we stopped and sat on the patio at Fuel, where I did the above sketches while having a quite good burger. My normal burger joint is also on Madison. Huey's has great music on Sunday afternoons, but they don't allow dogs on their patio (which makes me crazy), so they lost a sale today. I was really disappointed. But we had a lovely meal anyway.
On the way home, we stopped in Overton Park. I love the row of trees as the forest begins on the far side of the lake. The sky was overcast to a dark grey blue, which made the fall colors pop even more.
