catching up

It has been a week full of sniffles and coughs, busy kids, getting ready for a trade show at work, and I'm in the middle of "Killing Che" by Chuck Pfarrer.  This week in photos:

last week was warm, high 80's and sunny. After dog training I stopped to look at a field of cotton. I've lived in Virginia since 1999 and I haven't seen a field of cotton until this fall. When I drive through Isle of Wight and Windsor I pass several fields.

Sadly today when I drove out to dog training the cotton was still in the fields. It has rained hard for 4 or 5 days. Can you pick cotton after it gets soggy looking in the rain? I hope so.

MLyons has a new friend. She's from Sweden! We had her over last Friday and the girls made cookies and tootsie roll pop ghosts.

Yuk. Sniffles and coughs cover most of last week for me too. And, of course, it was perfect fall weather outside when you don't feel like doing much....:(
