Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Say it ain't so!

This is a picture of the view I get to experience everyday as I drive along one of the main roads close to my neighborhood. For a brief second, I am completely in awe of God's work with the beautiful reds, yellows, oranges and greens blending to form the perfect picture. I say "brief second" because in the next second, I become incredibly sad and depressed.

I can't enjoy the Fall foilage around here because in Minnesota, the colorful leaves only mean one thing....in a couple weeks...WINTER WILL STRIKE!

And in this week's forcast, they're predicting for that nasty four-letter "S" word to arrive.

Wednesday: Windy with rain and SNOW showers. Cold. High 39F. Winds NW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of precip 50%.
Thursday: SNOW showers at times. Highs in the low 40s and lows in the low 30s.

Goodbye Fall, for the short moment that you were here.

Is that Wedgewood Park area? I am spending nap time today trying to get everything winterized... It is so hard to put away all that deck furniture knowing that the snow will be here for the next, what 9 months or so?

Not Wedgewood Park, but one of the Wedgewoods off of Woodbury Drive. I literally took this picture WHILE I was driving!!!!

That is so beautiful! Our leaves haven't started changing yet. Maybe because it is still in the 80s. And snow?! I do hope we get some this year. I miss white christmas'.
