The Winds of This November


 Autumn is really pretty today.
The leaves have fallen  in colorful piles,
but just enough remain on the branches
to play games with the bluest of skies.

Today.
 

 I am trying to balance the 50-hour work week of an elementary teacher
with the loving time of family.
I babysat my 9 month old granddaughter, Andi,
overnight and got in lots and lots of cuddle
snuggly time.



I am truly amazed at the power of love
and yet, I'm not surprised at all.

Such pretty pages Kathy. Autumn is inspiring. The colorful leaves and the wind... I like that. I remember singing "Blowing in the Wind" a long LONG time ago in school! Have a good week. : ) Cat

today, as my parenting skills and patience was being tested all through the day by my kids, i wished they were both babies again, and just sweet little things :)

I love how the leaves look like they're blowing across the spread. Great movement.

Love, love these pages with the soft colours and how you've combined the leaves with the writing. Amazing that you've found the time to do it with your schedule!
