Hello! How are you? I hope you are are well, content, expectant, and feeling quite propelled by LOVE today. Vroooooom! Off you go! Off I go to school very soon. Would you like to see a few of my birthday gifts?

Oh, I am quite bejeweled with lovely birthday offerings. I am a bit bowled over by all the sweetness. Bill and I had a fun getaway and some delicious meals and I got to see all our kids and grandchildren, so I feel blessed, blessed, blessed. My birthday month has been super warm. I guess I got excited for fall just a tad too early. Eighty degrees and higher is the expectation for the entire week. Is it wrong to wish cooler temperatures for October? Well, I do.

I have parent/teacher conferences on Thursday evening. I'll be a bit loopy after that - such a long day. I must fix my brain on school and all the "to do's" associated with it instead of yarn, tea, cozy denim sofa, bird feeders still drawing tiny friends, sewing (I can't wait to try some projects held in the book above), winding walks on neighborhood streets, bumping into Bill because he's here (joy!) and all the other things of home. I guess I'll just wear my new ruby slippers to school and click three times and say, "There's no place like home" and then get back to teacher stuff.
My heart can be home even if I'm not.

Have you been doing the moon dance? Our glowing little round rock is fixing itself in the night time sky and hanging around for a bit in the morning, too. Mmmmmmmm. I like.
Joy to you and a buoyant day of life.
Thank you for the visit.

Good Morning Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful celebration you have had. I love the red shoes. RED is my absolute favorite color in the whole world, and I love those shoes. Inquiring minds want to know, where on earth did you get them? I love them.

New ring? WOW. And a new watch? Boy was the family ever good to you. The roses, I could smell them the minute your page opened. They are exquisite. What a special day for you sweet friend.

I hope you still have some hair left after the parent-teacher conferences. It can be quite a hair raising experience. I can't even imagine going through it with over 1 family. I will keep you in my prayers.

Have a gorgeous day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

You sure racked up on the presents. Sounds like your family really know how to celebrate!

Oh they are LOVELY shoes! I am such a boring-shoe-person but more and more feel a pair of COLOURED shoes coming on. And tomorrow I am going shopping with my mum. So who knows!
Hope your little mouse is okay!

Happy Happy Birthday, Lovely Lady Pom Pom!! I love those ruby slippers and all the magic you will click into the world with them. I think of you so many times as I carry boxes of this and that from our house to our new shed, especially all those boxes of teaching things that I can't bear to give up, especially anything written by my students. I found a book my class had put together of descriptions and drawings of monsters. I'll never be able to recycle it. I'd forgotten all about it, and then, of course, I thought of you and how you are in the middle of what it takes to get just such a priceless piece of literature written and published. The chaos at my house just now is immense, but this, too, shall pass. Meanwhile, may your birthday find a way to sneak into every day of this year in some surprising way, to make you laugh, give you joy. XOXO Kari
