The best thing about fall is the rich colors. Although, for the most part, the time for beautiful outdoor colors has passed in northern Minnesota, there is still plenty of fall and color to be found in the produce section of the grocery store – pumpkins, different varieties of squash and apples, and more.
This quick card features some of those gorgeous colors and another favorite verse. I scrounged up some old “Naturals” cardstock. I really love that paper and wish I new of a source for it. Anyone?

A Slice of Life: Busy at work. Busy at home. Tired. That would be me. The boys are staying with us tonight. Bjorn had homework for both math and reading. I oversaw the math (counting by fives and some simple subtraction), and Grandpa listened to him read. I read Mathias’ library book to them. My thoughts were that it was a very strange story that went off in a lot of different directions. Instead of a simple message with a understandable moral to the story, it was all over the place with no clear message or meaning. Had it been humorous, I could have handled it. Out of curiosity, I’ll have to find the author’s bio and see if I can figure out what it is he is trying to convey in his writings.
Kari recently asked about the “baby bump.” Miranda and Dustin are visiting the doctor every other week now. In fact, they had an appointment today, and I just got the “report” from daddy. Miranda is measuring 30cm at 30 weeks and five days, which, I’m told, is right on the money. All is well. From what mommy reports, it sounds like our little one might be a budding gymnast. It won’t be long now.
The weather is atrocious, although much worse in other parts of the state and country. Cold. Wet and rainy. Very Windy. Colder and snowy with no wind would be preferable to what it has been like so far this week. At the very least, I hope the winds subside for the trick-or-treaters this weekend.
I hope your week is progressing well. Thanks for your visits and comments. They are what make blogging fun! Have a great Thursday. With a little luck, I’ll be back…
