Leaves fall, flowers fade
trees lose their face
a pause to give my thoughts room
in giving thanks I’ve come this far
wiping the slate clean
for new beginnings to grow
deep under the earth

The beginning of this post – a foggy morning wrapped itself today around nature. Today (Monday): rain changed into snow at 3000 feet – bleh, too cold for California!)
THE GOOD: fences keep us out of the ditch!
One time my grand Peach (4 years old then) and I saw some parts of chewed up mushrooms between the trees, (probably from the deer) and told her. “Don’t touch it. You might get sick, because some are poisonous.”
Then we saw some, nice enough for a pic with my camera, and brushed some dirt off with my fingers.
“Nana,” she screamed of the top of her lungs, “Don’t touch it! You might get sick because some may be poisonous!” Difficult to keep my composure, since she was screaming as if it was her idea! Also, not expecting a 4-year-old would quote me verbatim!
THE FUN: Every time we come over now , we are greeted with a Zestful, “I AM FIVE!”
If you wonder why I’m late in visiting you these days, Fall is a five-birthday-run,
ending the day before Thanksgiving. That means a lot of shopping:) and visits.
Also this week starting on my Christmas
Clouds not modified!
Racing along the firmament – for some, the snowman came a long time ago.Who knows, it could be Father Christmas getting all his info by looking down on us.
Have you started on your CHRISTMAS LIST?
