Indian Summer

November 10, 2009

Here in Iowa we are enjoying a wonderful stretch of Indian Summer.  (I wonder where that term came from, and how Native Americans feel about it?)  Indian Summer is when the temperatures warm up in the fall, after frost has arrived.  It is a wonderful time of year when we get to enjoy a few last days of warmth before winter settles in.  People do all kinds of outdoor activities.  They do yard work, go for walks, barbecue, go to the park,  it is like summer’s  last hurrah.  It is not too hot, nor too cold, the bugs have all but disappeared.  (Except, of course, the Asian Beetle!!)  The only drawback is that it gets dark so early.

Enjoy it while it lasts.  

You-know-what  is coming!!!

I think I’ll barbecue some chicken tonight:)

Just Back

November 3, 2009

We just got back from a week of vacation visiting our family in Minnesota.  It was a wonderful time together.  During the week we helped our son get settled in at his new home in central Minnesota.  It is an exciting time of life for him, as he starts fresh in a new community; new job, new church, meeting new people, and making new friends.

He does not have internet, and so I did not post anything while we were gone.  I started to write this morning a blog on the community of believers, but it was much too complicated for my brain to deal with on the first day back.   There is a lot to do, and only limited time so that post will have to wait for another day. 

Choices, you know are very important.  So today, I will keep it simple.  After all, I am just getting back.
