Hello There!

Hi Everyone! I've been swamped with school and grading. I've been going to bed early, getting up to talk to Bill before school and go, go, going all day. Not exactly my cup of tea! I thought I'd show you this Halloween-y skeleton that hangs in one of the science classrooms. Boo!

Here's Jenny's pup, BEANS. Isn't she a cutie? She came over tonight with Jenny and Scott. They brought pizza. Yum! I still need to pack my little bag for Hawaii! Yahoo! We leave tomorrow morning!

Look at this lovely glass bead that Carolyn sent me! I have been wearing it every day!

The heating system at school is so wacky, and now it is FREEZING in my room. I need these fuzzy shoes to keep warm all day! But, tomorrow: FLIP FLOPS!

This is what Denver looked like the other day when I stopped to pick up some dinner at the burrito store.

A MIRACLE HAS OCCURRED. I went to Crate and Barrel with Kelli the other day and I looked around at all this house stuff that I used to WANT and now I do not want any of it anymore. Isn't that amazing?

Fall is still showing its brilliance even with some soggy, cold October days!

Little Miss Love Bug. Don't you just want to smooch her?

Birdie's pumpkin. Pom Pom's pumpkin growing did not yield a real whopper of a crop. This looked good for a while, but is rotting at the stem now. Sad. The two green survivors in the patch are mushy and dead. Oh well.

So tomorrow I shall see this sea! I'm planning on taking my computer so I can lay around on the bed and blog. I'll show you my sights and tell you about the tropical smells. I wish you could come with us! I had better go throw some clothes in a bag and round up all the chargers, glasses, and papers - stuff my backpack and sleep. We'll talk soon! BIG LOVE!
