Monday Musings - October 26, 2009

1. The autumn leaves were magnificent this weekend, in full color and also falling to the ground to blanket the yard with their beauty. There is something about a clear blue sky and golden and red colored trees that makes the heart sing--even though it is a harbinger of the winter ahead.

2. Celebrations! Baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays--we continue in so many different ways to celebrate life and new life and lives together. Congrats Nicole and Jeremy on your anniversary and also for the expectations of the new life, Lucas, that you are bringing into the world.

3. Why does Makayla get up early on Saturdays, but not want to get up on on Mondays? She needs a Friday night play date with a furry friend!

4. Family, football, friends and food! Would you really want a Sunday without them?

5. Conference planning is hard work! It doesn't matter if there are 50 or 180 people in attendance--the planning to make a conference successful is really trying. And when it is over--they is a long sigh of relief.

6. I heard a funny pronunciation of the H1N1 moniker this week-- hiney! If you look at it as HiNi--it kinda works.

7. An adjunct to conference planning--hosting a party for 20 people in the house is harder work than planning for a conference. At least fro the conference I can use a caterer AND, I don't need to clean up afterwards! Way to go Chris and Jodie--you guys rock!

8. What is the equivalent to an NFL quarterback throwing a 80 yard touchdown pass with time expiring to win the game? Sending Bob out in his truck into Baltimore an hour-and-a-half before a baby shower to retrieve a critical gift! Oh yeah--better be back before it starts!

9. Pop quiz--how do you make a sore back disappear? Play three games of racquetball in the morning!
