Today

... I walked at the park. 'Twas a beautiful fall day!

... I crunched acorns,

... crackled leaves

... and stopped to smell the roses - literally.

... I laughed thinking of Michael describing his dissection-of-a-crawfish adventures from yesterday at school. He told of pulling off the arms and seeing the pink heart. Fun stuff!

... I went to the bank, got some interesting library books, did some things at my workplace, bought bananas, went to the park and then went by ALDI.

... I came home and cut, washed and dried 30 lbs. of carrots for my juicer. Well, the air dried them, but I laid them out so they could dry and then put them away.

... I had a pleasant talk with a friend discussing various cultural aspects while reading a book from the library, Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands. It features 60 countries and tells what to expect if you do business in those areas. I read the section on the United States. Most of it I knew already - yay!

... I was told I sing like a white American woman.
/:) Really?

... I was reminded that the journey IS life. Don't wait 'til something else happens before you feel life begins. It's happening now. Live it. Well.






Don't sights like this make you want to break out running through the field singing, "The hills are alive with the sound of music....ahhhhhaaaahhhhhaaaaaa" and laugh?

Beautiful picture of Germany. Reminds me of the North Carolina mountains. Probably because I was just there today. :-)

I LOVE that you took the time to walk, crunch, crackle, and smell. Sounds like you were using all of the senses God gave us to enjoy His beautiful masterpiece in creation. :)

LMBO @ singing like a white American woman.

Amber...ha, ha! I sing, you conquer!

Hopefully, NOT the Baptists though!
