photos of interest...

The best part of October was meeting this child, seeing old friends, and helping Stan get married!

These most beautiful cookies came home with Todd, from his office Thanksgiving party. The photos don't do them justice-- they were amazing!

Todd calls Kuyper Dr. K, I think after Dr. J (Julius Irvin), who was called that after Dr. Dre??? I don't know. Anyway... This is what I come home to. These boys make me laugh.

Can you imagine a nicer Christmas dog? Me neither. He is lying against the small of my back, warming me, right now. Kuyper and I have come through a lot together. Merry Christmas, caninus adoracus!

It was a really, really fast slide. That is all.

It's very quiet around here. The storm passed last night, and we now have very low humidity with sunshine.

Weekend, Already?

This week went by fast! I've gotten a lot read and done at work, but my house looks like there are more than two adults and one dog living here. I cleaned the toilet before I went to work today, because who wants to come home to an icky toilet? I'm a huge fan of the 2000 flushes product that inhibits mold growth. We don't have central air like y'all do; we do run a little fan in there if we are making steam, but (sigh) the mold tries to grow anyway.

Todd is on his way to see his mother. I already miss him. Just while he is away, the no-dogs-on-the-bed rule is suspended. Kuyper will also miss his hero.

Photo of the Day

The News is not Good

Nancy's cancer marker is elevated. In three weeks they are going to do a CT scan to see if they can find where the cancer is growing. She is going to start chemo all over again.

My prayer is for her healing and peace. Please join me?

The first Sabbath was a trip to the Met, to see the paintings of JMW Turner, the stone mosaics of ancient nobles, and photos from the last century. Art was followed by worship, then Virgin records for some birthday CD purchases.

The second Sabbath was a wild raspberry picking trip to Westchester, followed by a barbecue (that is what they call a cookout up here). Fellowship and food. Deer, a notable sunset over the Hudson.

The third Sabbath was the Pepsico sculpture garden. I'd been there before, but I was still unprepared for how moved I would be by the sculpture in the beauty of nature. We walked along gravel paths (note: don't wear Birkenstocks on gravel paths) and inhaled, photographing most of it for you. I'll see how many photos I can load for you...

"Welcoming Birds"
Todd and me in fifty years!

"Hats Off" by Alexander Calder. It really is as big as it looks; it is not a funky angle on the part of the photographer!

"Eve" by Auguste Rodin.

"Three People on Four Benches" by George Segal.
Here's hoping you have experienced a little rest yourselves.

Happy Monday, all!
