And away we go...!!

Hurray! It's almost December! Yes, I'm back in CT after surviving my parents driving 13 hours back from MI. Ugh. All in all it was nice seeing the Howard side of the fam! But, nonetheless, I am here! And it's time to start decorating, shopping, wrapping, baking, and hopefully, it'll snow!! Pray for snow!!!! I'll keep you posted..

Happy Thanksgivin' Everybody!

This beautiful world we live in.
Having family of my own.
Almost Christmas! There's
No place like home.
Knowing the Lord.
Sunshine and rain,
Glad I'm not in pain.
I can see, hear, and walk.
Very special friends.
I have freedom and liberty!
New England's 4 seasons.
God's Word to light my path.

Gobble, gobblely, gobble! Now, I want you all to have a happy, ful-FILLING Thanksgiving. (Get it?,did ya get it!? haha..) Relax, have a good time, and eat, eat, eat! Dont forget to watch the parade!!! And think of me as I am away,*sniffle*from all you dear folk, and I shall think of you!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

During a recent session of Parliament , England's Prime Minister Tony Blair was asked by an opposing member why he believes so much in America.

Blair answered: "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in and how many want out. Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you; Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom."

'...and the Leaf shall Fade;...'

Can you believe all the glorious, vibrant leaves are almost gone, and winter's icy fury is creeping it's way in? It got quite cold a little too early this year for me, I always like those Indian Laura Ingalls had on the prairie, ahhh, the good ole days! I hope we have a good New England winter this year, with snow up to my elbows!! That's how it used to be when I was a kid...I cant believe I'm now using the phrase 'when I was a kid'. Sad. Tragic. Pathetic. Scary. Hopefully I'll maintain a kid at heart until I'm 90!! Anyway, :) This is my favorite tree in the yard. A Japanese Maple. I wanted to capture it before it was gone with the wind...
