View from my livingroom window. The leaves take longer to change here, but I really love the mix of green and reds, yellows and oranges. Some of you may scratch your head and wonder how someone who lives in The Bronx, is around so many trees. Well, The Bronx has a lot of Parks and Parkland. I live in an area called Parkchester. The trees are preserved. Outside my window are lots of trees and grass. Buildings too of course, as you can see, but it is a nice mix.

On Nov. 7th, me and my friend Clarissa (yes I have a friend named Clarissa) made a date to take pictures. I have only been on picture dates with one other friend. I love it, we feed off of each other. She is an excellent photographer, she was taking pictures for the yearbook in High School, and she was good then. She is amazing now, hope to learn a lot from her.

I am taking Clarissa (my daughter) trick-or-treating on Sunday. In my neighborhood the kids don't go from house to house or apartment to apartment, they trick-or-treat in the stores. There are a lot of stores in Parkchester and the neighboring areas such as Castle Hill Avenue and Westchester Avenue. The merchants sometimes even have people outside with chairs to give the candy out. Last year we had fun taking them around. I don't think any of her young friends will be with her, but perhaps one of our friends from church who is 18 will be joining us. Clarissa is dressing as Alice in Wonderland. Tonight is her Halloween Party, hope she has fun.

WOW! That is an Amazing view from your livingroom!!!!! I don't mind the view of the buildings, it is still very nice! You are lucky. I didn't realize you lived in the Bronx, I was thinking you were right in the heart of NYC.
I agree, the reds and greens are pretty together.
That is funny about the name thing... my best friend (Angel) and I both have daughters named Ashley and they are 2 years apart. But we didn't meet and become friends till our daughters were young children. So it is not like we did it on purpose.
Please post a picture of your daughter in her Alice costume!

Have fun!
