I want to say thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday's post, as well as send emails and post on my Facebook page. I really appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes -- way more than I can even say! I still haven't heard from Nichelle, but in my heart I know she's fine. She and her team are on the island of Borneo and the earthquake and problems are on the island of Sumatra. Even so, it's still right next to where she is, so it's hard for me not to worry. Had there been no news from the area, I still wouldn't be hearing from her because she's out in villages with no way to communicate. I hope to hear something soon. Thank you again for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.
It's starting to look like fall here finally. We had rain yesterday and more is expected tomorrow. Our aspens and birch trees have finally turned yellow, and the larches will follow soon. Western larch trees are cool in the autumn. They're pine trees, but in the fall their needs turn a bright yellow before falling off. The picture above is of the road that leads to our house. This particular curve is my favorite in both autumn and winter. If you click on the picture, it gets bigger and you can see why I love it so much. I love this time of year. All this week the boys and I were going to do projects relating to leaves, but I've postponed that until next week. For one, I've been a little glued to my computer, checking emails and refreshing the USGS website. And second, the leaves that have fallen outside are wet from the rain right now. We're due for sunshine all next week, so it will be a better time for Leaf Week for us. I love doing leaf crafts with the kids each year.
Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers for Nichelle and her team. When I hear something, I will be sure to post it here as well Facebook.
