I drove by this tree and had to come back with my camera. Can you believe the amount of pine cones on it?! Was it the exceptionally warm and humid summer? I don’t know but it sure was amazing! Continue reading
Mini Halloween Costume Craft for Girls
I remember wearing Halloween costumes to school as a kid. Most schools now discourage it and I think it is probably a good idea. I remember being uncomfortable and distracted by it.

Create these mini costumes that are fun to make and comfortable enough to wear all day! Continue reading

Leaves are starting to change! Here and there I am noticing the tops of trees or outer branches fading to red or orange or yellow.
Just in the last day or two I started to notice a few impatient trees that turn all at once. What is most interesting though is the way they then stand out. Yesterday there was a just a green forest backdrop and today there is an intensely yellow tree against that backdrop. Suddenly there’s a star in the forest! A star that will soon fade but will, I’m sure, back next year for an encore performance!
I recently had one of those moments where I felt really small and I looked up and saw two clouds that reminded me of fish. They were moving fast for clouds which actually looks pretty slow. Have you ever had one of those strange moments?
I just got PowerPoint 360 and I am having fun playing around with that. It has some nice new features. You can now fully customized animation speeds. I could have made those clouds move even slower if I wanted too and I find that very exciting! You can now also save presentations as video files directly. Fun, fun!
Thanks, No Doubt for the music!
I spy a flash mob! I was at the airport about to pay for parking when I looked over and saw them, all in black. There were so many of them and they were all so perfectly coordinated. Then it was over in a flash. That’s all, that’s all that happened today except for the leaves are starting to change too.
I spy rows of young trees about to be transplanted.
Gone are the playful days at the nursery. Now they are out in the world and ready to make something of themselves. Perhaps they will beautify a roadway, make shade, dampen sound, make oxygen. I am sure they are unsure and feeling very unsteady. But soon they will see how wonderful being useful can be!
