A Monday hello

Congratulations to Michigan State making it to the Final Four. Once there is only one Big Ten school left, we all become fans of that school. I'm sure Sallie is happy. :)

I awoke earlier then planned this morning, just to "encourage" my son to get out of bed at 6:30 and on his way to classes. He didn't arrive home from studying until nearly 1:00 this morning. I was actually still awake as his Dad arrived back from the Chicago area hours after he planned and he didn't finish his late dinner until Midnight. I became interested in an author interview on Book TV that lasted until 1:00... surprising my son when he walked in the door! Yawn... there is most likely a nap in my daily plans.

The early morning was rewarded with a beautiful, frosty scene of the sun peeking through clouds and forming an ethereal scene on my neighbor's red barn. The frost was not on the pumpkin but embraced daffodils. The first bouquet is now in a pretty vase and sitting on my dining room table.

Yesterday's snow was not unusual for this time of year. I was watching the snow yesterday and remembered the Tulip Time festival (in May) when snow fell as we walked back to our car after Stephanie had taken part in the parade. That was the year I thought Michigan would have snow in August. :)

I need to apologize to a few people who sent e-mails. I know some were buried and a few went to the Spam folder. I'm not certain why but there was a period of two to three weeks when good e-mails were sent to Spam in Hotmail.

Naps are wonderful things...I don't know why we resist them so when we are children...

Have a great day.

Your day sounds like mine...up late when my son came in at 12:30 am - after helping two friends move this weekend, and then up at 5:45 am to get him to work this morning....I may get a nap today as well!

Blessings on your day!

Oh yes, we are doing the major happy dance here over MSU being in the Final Four.

Thanks for adopting us for the tournament. I was pulling hard for Wisconsin, Purdue, Minnesota, etc. during their games. Well, I kept saying, "Go Big Ten!" because I can't really ethically cheer specifically for another school. LOL!
