At least it was a good week. ; )
|I went for a run, and passed this house on my way home. They|
do this every year.
|Fall color...while it lasted.|
|I spent some time on Sunday making these for a cookie|
exchange Mom and I attended today--they froze well all week.
|The cinnamon imperials represent the Grinch's two-sizes-too-|
|The tree outside my choir room was on fire for but a moment.|
|A nasty infection sent me running to Kaiser on Monday.|
|Mom and Dad have hired a house cleaner. Monday was her|
first visit, and the floors have never looked so amazing.
|Pretty morning sky.|
|The Large Suburban High School put on "Every 15 Minutes"|
on Tuesday and Wednesday.
|Every 15 minutes throughout the day, a student was pulled|
out of class, and a tombstone added.
|The Living Dead and the Grim Reaper arrived at the crash|
|Several hundred teenagers in bleachers, went eerily|
quiet when those tarps were pulled off.
|This is, of course, all simulated. The victims are all students,|
and local police, fire, and paramedics respond and treat it
like a real crash scene.
|The boy in the Hawaiian shirt was the "drunk driver." He was|
arrested and taken in for booking--they go through everything
as though it's real, and our media kids filmed it all.
|A CHP helicopter arrives to airlift an injured student.|
|Two of our assistant principals came out to leave a black rose|
and read an obituary for a fatality of the crash.
|After such and emotional day, tea was welcome.|
|The tree is pretty much bald now.|
|The art of cat massage.|
|I love this picture.|
|Fortunately, the storm was not as bad--here--as it could have|
been, but we did have a lot of wind blowing leaves in.
|And we got a GOOD dumping of rain.|
|Cali Swimmy (along with me for the day to give me luck|
in my Winter Concert) loved it, of course.
|Only after I took the pic did I notice one of my freshmen had|
"dusted" for me.
|The stage was set...|
|Our candy canes were ready...|
|...and my hair looked good.|
|The first half was great; the second half was great.|
|Some sunshine on Friday morning.|
|It was Furby Friday again. Lynn had to go to the office, so I|
got to babysit. I love Furby Friday.
|I was quoted in the school paper. : )|
|Trading out comfy socks for concert shoes. I moved a baby|
grand by myself in those shoes, because I rock like that.
|My kids gave me flowers. They're the best.|
|Done!! Cali and I were so ready to get home.|
|Off to the Christmas Cookie exchange|
|Outside of Lincoln, the rural areas are quite lovely.|
|The cookie exchange is always a lot of fun (and a lot of sugar!).|
|Champagne and cookies.|
|Harriet's house is gorgeous.|
|Huge old oak tree.|
|I found the sweater at Target yesterday.|
