Good things are happenin' around this old house. First of all the leaves are turning a bit more. We had a killer frost on Wednesday. The blue jays are screaming and flying from one yard to another looking for food. They are comical to watch and they scold Dakota with a cacophony of noise. He ignores them totally, or sits and watches when they perch in the tree at the end of the driveway. It's hilarious to watch their antics. I enjoy autumn and its sounds, sights and fragrances.
There has been some good news today. First of all, Jordan is back in school after being off an entire week with a fever and a cough. The doctor said it was bronchitis. He still has a bit of a cough but is so much better than he was just a couple of days ago.
Brandon phoned me right after school and told me that he got 100% on all six of his weekly horticulture exams. He tried his final today and will get that mark back next week. Now he moves on to a different tech course. He's not sure which one it is, but I believe his LRT told me it was construction. If so, I'm not sure how he will like it but I told him it would be a learning experience and an adventure. I will update you as things progress.
Last, I had good news today. Another of my stories has been chosen for publication in Chicken Soup for the Soul: True Love. The release date will be December 29th. I was thrilled to have two stories accepted to their publications within six months. When I get my contributor copies in January, I'll be having another giveaway.
And so some good things have been happenin' around here. I am always glad to count my blessings. What blessings have you received this week?
