A glimpse of red


I saw these beauties last week & was able to snap a picture. I wish I could have pulled off on the side of the highway on my drive from Boston yesterday to take more pictures. The leaves here are changing & the reds and oranges and yellows are simply stunning.

I've been given a mission to bring back some leaves for my sweet niece to use for a leaf project for school. She is having such a hard time learning the simple things that most of the children in her class already know. Another instance of her MOTY (Mother Of The Year) doing her a huge disservice. My mom is working with her as much as possible & I do as well when I see her, but it just breaks my heart that she is having to work so hard when if any time had been spent on this a few years ago (when she was still with MOTY) she'd be showing flying colors.

Hope you'll have a beautiful day today. I'll be trying to comment more than last week, but it may still be less than usual due to being crazy busy & tired. Plus, I think I'm working on a chest cold. Fabulous.

Very, very jealous! I need to post the pictures of home to show y'all. But your picture is prettier!

Hope you feel well soon - I'm coming down with some serious allergies, it's the pits!

Pretty Fall leaves!!! That is one thing I don't like about Florida... while I insist that we do have a Fall, I will fully admit that we don't have Fall leaves.

Your sweet neice is very lucky to have such a sweet aunt and sweet grandma.
