Hello Monday . . . a meme started by Lisa Leonard.
Hello Late Summer Produce . . . we're still getting a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box each week and enjoying sampling a variety of colorful produce (including lemon cucumbers, purple peppers, yellow beans and red onions).
Hello Law School . . . my new semester starts tomorrow! Luckily I'm on sabbatical (teaching a reduced course load) this year.
Hello limp . . . my leg is much better, but I'm still hobbling around.
Hello fond farewells . . . many of Henry's friends are starting to leave for University this week. He's not leaving until the end of September but saying good-bye to so many of his friends makes it seem so much more real.
Hello last week of summer break for Clara . . . tomorrow we'll meet with the registrar to plan her school schedule; official cross country practices start this week; and she'll start her school year in one short week
Hello "sit," "down," "stay," and "leave it" . . . Clara and I are taking the dogs to obedience training; results so far are mixed. . . .
Hello Cranberry Beans . . . and pasta e fagioli. Plus ratatouille and all kinds of other fun summer recipes.
Hello netflix and on demand series . . . I'm really enjoying Luther, Broadchurch and Under a Cold Winter Sun. Thanks to those of you who recommended these. I want to start House of Cards soon, and I'm looking forward to any other suggestions people might have.
Hello New Blogs . . . there are two new-to-me blogs that I am really enjoying these days. Marilyn Lamoreux features fabulous photography, inspiring quotes and meaningful reflection that have really been speaking to me. This post titled "Go toward love, not away from fear" is typical of what she offers up everyday.
Michael 5000 has a fantastically fun blog called the "Infinite Art Tournament." Described as "an interactive, democratic, long-term exercise in art appreciation," he invites blog readers to look at a few works of art created by two different artists and then choose a favorite (winner) between the two. (He also blogs about an element from the periodic table every month, and I "met" him when he contacted me about using some ATC art I made about the periodic table - you can see my contribution on his blog this week).
Hello Wise Old Friends . . . A few of my long-time blog friends have also published some posts recently which are worth reading. Inspired by current events, Carola posted this recollection about a visit to Egypt. And Melissa discussed creative wrapping paper and wedding gifts here.
What are you saying hello to this week? And do you have any new blogs to recommend?
