Labor Day Weekend Roundup

It’s a lovely Labor Day weekend in the mid-Atlantic. I’m spending it with family–celebrating my birthday (and my sister’s) a week early, going to a baby shower for my cousin. It’s warm but has the freshness of impending fall. Once again, I find myself wishing I could spend the autumn months here in north Delaware or back at college in Pennsylvania. Living in such an urban area, I miss the constant presence of fall foliage and then of bare trees on gray days stretched out for miles over hills.

Where I went to school, I could see this kind of thing all the time. And it hurts in the bottom of my stomach to know it’s there again and that I’m living in a city of concrete and skycrapers with a few small parks and older developments providing trees. This is what I miss:

Hills of Pennsylvania

Well, that was a depressing turn, wasn’t it? I’m having a good weekend nonetheless. Moving on, here are some personal finance articles from last week that you might enjoy:

Speaking of weddings, congrats to the Weakonomist who just got his marriage license!

{sigh} Bet that someday Mr. M will land a tenure-track job in a beautiful college town with actual seasons, and you will get hired in the library, where they’ll have gigantic picture windows to look out on the changing leaves.
