24 October

the fun

Is it such a very terrible thing to say that I have bought

a Christmasy sort of wooden house?

Already....and it's not even Halloween yet.

the random  

While on my lunch break stroll through Beacon Hill last week

I took a few photos in one of the old graveyards 

and all these strange light beams showed up...even a rainbow.

Very odd happenings so close to Halloween.

the good

 What could be better than little Verne?

I'm not quite sure how it's possible but he just keeps getting better and better.

keeping Sabbath

~ ~ ~

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

To everything there is a season

and a time for every matter under heaven

a time to be born and a time to die

a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted

~ ~ ~

The first time I heard these words they were in a song sung by Pete Seeger. 

Life has battered and bruised and dented me since then. 

It's also blessed me with boundless joy. 

Now I read these words in an old and tattered ESV bible

and they mean so much more than I ever could have imagined.

Tuck vs. the Viva roll

Tucker Huckleberry Finn

would like any and all to be aware that he is taking care of the issue regarding the paper towels

First discovered upon the dining room table and subsequently transferred 

to the dining room floor...

Where upon it was discovered the rolling and or ripping qualities of said offending material.

Not to worry though, our boy is stealthily pursuing his target.

Rest assured Tucker will leave no leap un-leaped

he has the situation well in hand, er...paw.

signing out.....

your protector of all things rolly and rippy,

Tucker Huckleberry Finn

21 October

The bittersweet vine is so pretty at this time of year. 

It's very invasive but I love the orange and red berries 

and the green leaves which turn to such a pretty yellow.

It wouldn't feel like Autumn without a bit of bittersweet

berries to decorate the house with.

I got to spend some time with Verne and his mama.


He and I chatted while his mama took a nice long shower.

He told me stories about sucky things and warm milk.

It's not always easy being one week old and sometimes it helps 

to have a Nana you can tell your troubles to.

The weather was sunny and warm, which is quite unusual for October.

We sat in the backyard for a bit so my daughter could get some fresh air

and Verne had his first little picnic lunch.

scattering acorns for peace

When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with its fall, 

but a hundred acorns are sown in silence 

by an unnoticed breeze.

-Thomas Carlyle

John Lennon and Yoko Ono began a project back in 1969 that they called Acorn Peace

they sent out 2 acorns in a transparent box to various world leaders

in hopes that they would be planted as seeds of peace.

In 2009, 40 years later, Yoko Ono once again sent out 2 acorns to world leaders.

We are the acorns

We are the sowers of peace seeds

We are mighty oaks in forest woods

We are the unnoticed breeze

~ ~ ~

scatter acorns when you walk
scatter acorns when you talk
scatter acorns when you cook
scatter acorns with a look

scatter acorns when you sing
let an acorn be your bling
scatter acorns when you teach
scatter acorns at the beach

scatter acorns in the park
scatter acorns as a lark
scatter acorns on your bike
as you ride with your friend Mike
scatter acorns in your lawn
with your baby brother Sean
scatter acorns with the tide
scatter acorns far and wide

 scatter acorns leave a trail
scatter acorns in the mail
scatter acorns with a smile
scatter acorns all the while
let's all be like tall oak trees
scattering acorns with the breeze
