Last Rose of Summer

Taken Oct. 4, 2011

Amazing how nature never fails to produce miracles. 
Especially since my garden was badly neglected this year!

Parenting Lessons

"Parenting lesson for the day: if you feel strongly about providing opportunities for your kids to make choices, you sometimes have to be okay when they come home with a Dora backpack." Chris Miller
 My grand nephew Henry struggles with autonomy!


He finally wins, but doesn't look too happy about it.


 Meanwhile, brother Finn enjoys making himself an afternoon snack.


Too funny not to share.

Happy Birthday to Me! {Yesterday}


Dear me. Where did the years go?
9-9-49 ~^~ 9-9-011

Today you are one day older than yesterday and a day younger than tomorrow
and that only makes a difference if you're a banana!
