Never Say Never

Never say never. I said the flower bed was my last outdoor project for this year, but then I went to the mountains for a wonderful hike and came home with a car load of rocks for the fire pit. The weather is so beautiful, I can’t help but go out and get started. Where ever I end up, I can take up again in the spring.

I think I have enough information now to make a decision on my eye surgery. That gives me great relief. My dragon story is coming along wonderfully. That is exciting – for me. The holidays have sort of sorted themselves out, so all in all, fall is falling into place.

I helped my granddaughter with her 2nd grade math. I understand the concept they are teaching, but wow is it different from the way I was taught. Not that that is bad by any means, but I certainly had to reprogram my brain for a minute or two. They teach a lot of steps to get to the answer. We had to memorize tables. Both methods work. They are even introducing the beginnings of algebra – in second grade. That sort of blew me away, but hey, it’s probably less scary now rather than later.

The aftermath of hurricane Matthew just keeps getting worse and worse. Some of those rivers in the Carolinas haven’t even crested yet. I hope there is no more loss of life, but I fear the worst news is yet to come.

and so it goes…
