Thank you all so very much for your kind words on my last post. It was magical for me really, to read your words. I wrote that post feeling uncertain about so many things and all your comments made me feel even more that it is hard to draw a line between “real” friends and blogging friends. If I could come to your house with baked goods and hugs I surely would.
I am so thrilled to have another child, it felt so fragile there for a while that I was afraid to say it out loud. My thoughts made little sense and it felt hard to talk…about anything. Everything seemed so minor compared to that little bean in my belly and it’s steady beating heart. So yes, from the bottom of my own heart- thank you!
Today has been a funny day. I went to the closest large town to pick up a few groceries and I couldn’t find the grocery store. I have been there before but with the one way streets going the wrong way I got so discombobulated. I found a different plaza and it was even nicer than the original store. Lucky for me there was a Michael’s and I found myself roaming around until Henry’s craft store meter was used up. He only piped up after I went to the glitter glue aisle for the third time. And if all that wasn’t smiley enough the clerk let me use two 40% off coupons at once.
Soon after we came home it started spitting snow. We ran outside like any people from Texas would when it snows in October. I took these pictures of the old school house across the street…
You can’t really see the snow coming down in those pictures, but now as I look out the window it looks like an entirely different season…all in the same day!
We live near this mountain, I’m guessing snow will be part of our lives until April.
As for the old school, I will answer your questions before giving you a chance to ask them.
The town owns it and it’s full of junk. I peeked in the windows and other than the junk it still has lots of old charm, like a gigantic chalk board. I wish I could buy it just so we could play school in it. I would love to decorate it for Christmas.
I hope you had a good, funny day, too. I hope you are warm hearted and happy and when your kids come in the house and track in muddy snow try not to yell, it’s only the first time of the season for goodness sakes.
