First Frost Today

Saturday, November 12, 2005

Notice one of my poor gnomes has had her head lopped off...hmmm

Looks so nice on the evergreen shrubbery.

Off the side deck.

    Nightmares about headline gnomes and snow; oh no. So sorry ;)

    GORGEOUS pictures. I love them! I love the changing of the seasons, and find beauty in the whole process.

    xo,

    I've got five little live gnomes here - luckily not beheaded!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and for kind words. Love your blog!

    Five kids mean double work or so - but imagine the amount of hugs and kisses I guess during a day! I wouldn't have it any other way...

    (Ok, there was that time, when there were - at any given moment - three screaming babies while the fourth was being fed. Then when I put the last one to bed the first one woke up... No wonder I shoved them all into my hubby's arms when he came home, and instead concentrated on the oldest coming home from kindergarten..)

    Dr.Deb;
    As an environmental researcher, I am constantly observing changes around me. My 4 year old is also very interested in the changing seasons, which I of course, think is just great. (my outdoorsy little fellow).

    MissB;
    Oh you make me smile:) Leave it to a New Yorker to think that someone lopped her head off; no, actually, I was working in the garden one day a week or so ago and fell backwards, landing my bottom on her head. Or should I say she poked her head into my bottom....whichever, it was my ass that snapped her head off, not a vandal:)

    Angel;
    I don't know it, but I am on my way over to iTunes to check it out right away. Thanks:)

    Chloe;
    I didn't know you used flickr; I can't seem to figure out how the whole thing works. Silly me...I am also on my way over to take a look, as soon as I am finished at iTunes (hopefully I don't get lost in the abyss). I love garden gnomes, even though there is the whole stigma associated with them. I'll post a better picture soon.

    Scholiast;
    Thank you for taking the time to come by. God knows, with five kids, I don't know how you find the time:) I have two and I know the feeling about one getting to sleep and the other waking. It happened today actually. I look forward to hearing some advice on how you are able to balance attention with all of them. I feel torn with just the two. But I completely agree with the love and hugs and kisses. I too, wouldn't have it any other way. Who knows, maybe I'll even go for three (did I just say that?)

    Wow frost! Lovely colors :)
    Best of luck for the Christening tomorrow, hope all goes well.

    Michelle;
    The baptism is certainly on my mind. I am looking forward to it in some ways, but dreading it in others. There will be a lunch afterwards at my mothers house, which sounds like a nice thing for her to do, but really is just a show for her. I is extremely hard for me to put this relationship into words without sounding shallow and ungrateful. Of anyone, you would probably understand, given your descriptions of your mum. I am sure I'll have a post about the whole thing!

    The song is great and Michael Buble is amazing; my husband (Mr.C.) wandered over and is now wanting to buy the Christmas cd; a bit of an obsession with him. Anyway, so sweet of you to have thought of the song for my photos.
