On Fridays I share a few pictures of the week. Today I’m sharing freshly bloomed roses, an orange maple tree, and snow!
We are wrapping up week 8 of Blackberry Bluff School! Despite more changes in our daily rhythm (driving Bug back and forth to his day center), we are still holding strong. I’ve discovered that the promise of a science experiment is a strong motivator for Bear, so I’ve used it to my advantage all week. And my Blackberry Bluff School Amazon wishlist is exploding, ha! Using Trello to plan for this term has been a lifesaver and I’m still working on the blog post that explains why.
Last Saturday we drove up the mountains, which are about an hour north. They got snow the night before! It’s so much fun to drive up to Franconia Notch this time of year because there’s almost always snow to be found.
Good Things This Week
- Did you see the video that Kat shared on Monday? Here’s a direct link to the video. I have been thinking a lot about the word Still since August and enjoyed this little meditation.
- I hope you’ve had a chance to listen to this week’s Next Right Thing episode. It’s about staying grounded during this election season and was powerful – well worth the 14 minutes. I have to admit, I’ve been hearing Emily P. Freeman’s voice in my head during the last couple of weeks and it’s been reassuring.
- I’ll leave you with a snippet from this week’s On Being Episode. Krista Tippett discussed the teachings of Howard Thurman with Rev. Otis Moss III. Here’s a few paragraphs that spoke to me:
May you plant and grow beautiful things during this dark time!
Enjoy your Friday and I hope the weekend is a time of renewal for you.
