Still Life - Ruby Tuesday

In the Odyssey, Homer declares pears as a 'gift of the gods'

Red glow sweet crisp fruit
Hanging on orchard tree boughs
Washed by autumn's mist

Pears .. betwixt summer and winter .. aaaahhhh!

A very Ruby Tuesday .. for more inspiring photos and to join the 'red' rubies .. click here.

On The Road Again

Edit - My screwy computer posted pictures from I don't know where .. that only show up on my iPhone .. not laptop .. What gives?  Anyhow .. I've reposted this post .. you're not seeing double.

This coming week I'm off to the second annual Scarf Sisters Retreat.  We're meeting in Northern Michigan for lots of catching up, eating, sight seeing .. and, of course, lots of hugs and prayer time.

2010 Scarf Sisters Reunion - Idaho
Hubby is holding down the fort .. and Ann will help out when needed with her younger brother Nathan.  But before I leave .. there's lots of work to finish.  Baking bread and making freezer meals.  There's also about 30 lbs of ripe tomatoes to can, raspberries and apples to pick and garden debris to burn.  For sure .. I will need a vacation from just getting ready to go on this trip.

Oh .. there's the oven timer .. have to scoot.  Enjoy your weekend!

Just Dance

Nathan has been back to school for nearly a month.  He had a nice surprise at school;  his (favorite) 5-6th grade teacher has moved up and is now his 8th grade teacher.  He is so happy to trek off to school each morning and is continually making progress.  His in home therapy has ended as he met all of his goals.  Now he spends two afternoon/evenings a week receiving developmental therapy in a group setting with a new set of goals.  This is a BIG deal for him .. considering that only a year ago he would barely set foot inside the building.  His comfort level has greatly increased.  My once introverted son is comfortable enough to dance to music in front of his peers.  Praising God for His goodness!
