Our Holiday Tree

HAPPY THANKSGIVING weekend TO MY CANADIAN NEIGHBORS TO THE NORTH!


Brrrrr!!! It's cold here. It looks and feels more like December, so yesterday we were motivated to decorate our holiday tree for Autumn/Halloween/Samhain. I'm glad the weather man has said that we will have more seasonable temps, a bit warmer, next week. Thursday was ughly! Nasty winds, rain, snow, sleet, ice. I made a big pot of Lentil, wildrice and vegetable soup. On Wednesday night for dinner I made a double pot of lentil and wild rice taco filling. It made a great addition to the vegetable soup I had planned for Thursday. We still have plenty of both left for today or tomorrow. Yesterday I was late getting home from seeing clients so picked up a favorite pizza for our dinner. I was chilled to the bone and worn out so spent the evening wrapped up watching TV. I went to bed early but woke up a couple of hours later creeped out by a boxelder bug crawling on me in bed. I hope this weather has killed most of those dirty bugs! They've been everywhere this year! I did get back to sleep eventually.


Yesterday I closed with a family who has come so far. The 7 year old I worked with sobbed uncontrollably at the news that I wasn't coming back again. It made me sad too. "Who's going to help me with my problems, and who's going to help me be good now?" After she calmed down I got her to fill out a closing survey/tool, she signed her name and then wrote, "I love Mom and Maripat". So sweet! While I was at that house one of the older sisters friends was there for a sleepover and asked me when I was coming back to her family's house again? She said she thought that her family needed me to come again. A little awkward. So much for confidentiality! :-)


I've got a couple of art projects to work on this weekend. I should do some housework. But after so many weeks of not having any time for art I think that is going to take the majority of my time this weekend.


I hope all are having a wonderful Saturday!


LIFE IS GOOD!!
