Hello fine friends! Remember last spring when I was reading Making Crosses? I hung this cross in the kitchen and I still enjoy it very much and now I am enjoying Praying the Names of Jesus by Ann Spangler (thank you, Bill!) I recommend, I definitely recommend. As we enter the holiday season (soon, right?) I like to think about Easter, thus the photo of my sweater cross above. I also wanted to share a web site with you that will afford you some quiet moments. Here's the link: http://www.gratefulness.org/angels/default.cfm
Thank you for following along as I do my regular hip hop around and zig- zag your brain a bit.
Last October doesn't seem like a year ago, but Birdie was a year younger! Look at her pumpkin and her silly Uncle Jeff. The leaves are changing. I'll take some pictures of our leafy neighborhood today or tomorrow and serve up ginger cookies, too. Come by then.
It's always spooky in the science room at school.
Speaking of school, I went to the all-school dance last night. The dean of students was the disc jockey. She did a fantastic job - the kids danced and played and HAD FUN. YEA!
A sixth grade boy asked my friend to dance! Sixth graders love their teachers, eighth grade teachers have to fight hard for that kind of love!
Sometimes we have snow in early September and all the summer flowers wilt and give up the ghost. This year, we have an Indian summer. Never have my morning glories been so glorious and never have I had nasturtiums thriving, reaching, and glowing red-orange as I do this year.
And here's a rose for my grandmother Evelyn Rose, my Jenny Rose, my Samantha Rose, and for tiny Millie Rose who will arrive in December! You take one, too. You are also a sweet rose.
For you: a smile, a kiss, a warm cup of tea, an October stroll, a big HUG, and a thank you, because I feel connected to YOU.
