Today is election day. I love this map!
I guess I’ll first admit that I am officially old, having celebrated my 73 birthday. Fortunately there was only one candle on my cake! But the exciting things no longer seem to be wrapped gifts.
Close to home, are the grandchildren. They frequently have sleepovers at our place. This is the angel Leo (5) who turns into a demon sometimes when awake. It is hard being a middle child!
Forrest, three, is dying for a sleepover. He’s not quite ready for it though, but he enjoys walks with his grandfather and having a hot chocolate together afterwards.
The oldest, Ivy, has lost 3 teeth and is delighted by the tooth fairy. She works at home on projects and other activities and attends school three days per week. And so, she was especially delighted that her tooth, which had been dangling for a long time, finally came out at school so that she could celebrate the event with her friends. Here they are, Ivy is wearing green.

Sarah has begun baking and selling bread at a small booth up at the road in front of their house. It’s quite the success! Ric and I enjoy the cinnamon buns warm from the oven. I enjoy her cheddar/jalpeno bread too. This week she began offering olive bread as well as the regular choices:
-Parmesan herb ( large small)
-whole wheat (large)
-Multigrain with sunflower (large)
Their barn and their mini-house both have new roofs. Lots of work, but a huge improvement.
From far away, Adam has been working in Haiti once again, a very quick surprise trip to help an orphanage. As usual, a difficult trip. After his return, he traveled to Toronto for a workshop and enjoyed celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving there. It is a treat to receive photos from him, especially these beauties showing him ‘relaxing’ with three friends! These were taken in New Hampshire at Mt Garfield.
They only climbed about 900 meters, but note the summer-to-arctic transformation!
As for the old folks, Ric has been practicing for his group’s Christmas concert. He sings bass for the first time. They are really short of male voices.
As for me, I’m always making changes in the garden. The bulbs are all planted now. I always wish I’d planted more come spring.
