It was such a treat to be able to fly home for Thanksgiving Break and spent the week with my family.
These are a few testimonials of my visit...
|Three pumpkins greet guests as they come up the front step|
|By the back step wild fruit or berry of some kind can been seen that the birds love this time of year|
|I was surprised to still see the Johnny-Jump-Ups bravely blooming in the brisk late November weather. There must be a deep layer of leaves to protect them!|
|My sisters and I (minus one) on Thanksgiving Day. I think the only time I took my apron off was for the dinner. ;)|
|Sparkling Cider in my inherited glasses from Grandma. It (the cider) was a perfect addition to homemade pumpkin pie and chocolate pie.|
|My very tall brother (who also flew in for Thanksgiving) and I.|
Now back in the south with just a little over two weeks of the fall semester, I cannot guarantee that you'll hear much from me. I would covet your prayers for physical, mental, and emotional stamina! :)
Anticipating Christmas break already, I've pulled out some of my favorite Christmas music. Can anyone recommend their favorite CD (preferably traditional or classic Christmas music of orchestral, symphonic, and/or choral? That is, nothing wild and crazy)?
