Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Fall perfection in Chapel Hill~~
Today is the last day in Chapel Hill before heading back to possible snow and colder temps than normal in Indiana. Another blue sky, cool day, with autumn colors, people in sweaters, enjoying voting day. I ran over to a close by plaza to weigh in real quick at Weight Watchers, then joined April, Emmy and Keith to eat alfresco at the Whole Foods(an organic grocery store that has a hot and cold bar with tasty, organic items that are delish!) It's always packed, and the selection is just awesome. Emmy enjoyed the warm air, and loves to people watch. We went to Border's afterwards where she experienced the magazine rack(shiny paper, what fun!) and tasted her first bite of a warm white chocolate macadamia nut cookie....let us just say, she is a future book store/coffee house kind of girl!
They have some new transit buses here that are so odd looking...they look like two bus bodies connected with a slinky, making them very, very long. I could so easily relocate here, everything is here, folks are friendly and people really "like" living here.
Addie sat in the car while I packed up a few things, getting ready for our early morning trip back north. She was a little hard to get back out again, and seemed to be ready to roll. She has throughly enjoyed running in the pine needles and fallen leaves in the kids' woods behind and beside their Indiana farmhouse style home.
Emmy is getting a third tooth, on top this time, and has crawled forward, and signed more all while I've been here. She's always doing something new, and seems to have had a spurt of development all at once. Keith and April are wonderful parents, and Emmy is a very lucky little gal, living in Chapel Hill. We were wondering yesterday if she will develop the local accent, eventho her parents don't speak "south"....most likely she will if her teachers do. April and Keith both voted today, did you?
