I'm a person who has a lot to say, and I hope this blog will be one more way for me to share my ideas with others. I like to brag about my kids, discuss my faith and life issues, and even talk about books, movies, and places I've visited. Thanks for taking the time to listen to the things I have to say. Enjoy!

Get Thee To The Woods vol. 17: Golden Sunday
Don't you love those sunny autumn days when the sky is a deep blue and the air seems to glow with a warm golden color? Today was one of those days.
A perfect day for a fall picnic,
a ride on a tire swing,
a walk in the woods,
a visit to the creek,
and a knaw on a bone.
The hummingbirds have been busy, seeing as the feeder is half empty. We've seen them coming and going, but still haven't been able to get them on film ( or rather, my memory card)
Today a flock of geese stopped by on their way South for the winter. They might move on tomorrow, or they might stick around for a while.
The locals decided to check them out.
Curly did some fishing, even though he was supposed to be doing homework. Last weekend when Joe and I were in Newport, my father-in-law helped Curly with his fishing techniques. He's become quite skilled, and was disappointed today when he only caught one fish.
Later this week I'll update my other blog, Cooking Nick's Books, with our Message In A Bottle inspired picnic. I'll post the recipes for the sandwiches, coleslaw, and potato salad we ate--all of which were delicious! Follow me there so you won't miss it!
