After a hot muggy summer, this past week has been glorious. This was spotted on our morning walk/squirrel hunt this morning.I'm not sure what they are, but it was a tall bush with tiny mum like fuchsia flowers all over it. Maybe it was some kind of mum hybrid. Lovely. The weekend was spent with hurried emails and plans and more plans as it is high season for quilt and fabric designers. I have a spiral notebook that I carry at all times with my ongoing "to-do" list. Every day I cross off 2 or 3 things. Every day I also add about 7 or 8 things. I need to practice meditation just to quiet all the noises in my head. Geesh.
If you got a chance to catch any football this weekend, maybe you saw Polly's son Jim. He was on the field with the Stanford football team when they played Notre Dame in South Bend. If you saw a tall, handsome Marine in full dress uniform - that was him. He was the honorary Captain of the team. This honor was given to him by his best friend and inseparable childhood pal - Coach Jim Harbaugh. For us, who knew each of them when they were small boys - this was a really fun game to watch.
She will be the hit at Halloween. Who could resist this adorable Tiger suit? When her Mom, Katie saw what she unwrapped, she exclaimed "Oh, A Tiger suit just like your Aunt Laurie wore." I was then asked if I had a suit like that when I was a toddler. No, I mumbled. Uhhmmm, I wore it in my twenties. Yeah, I kind of forgot about that. No Halloween party or Opening Day celebration was complete until I was there in the Tiger suit. Oh youth.
It will look much better on Kayce.
