falling forward

I saw it before I felt it this morning. The slant of the early morning light was just that tiny bit different, that first hint that fall is on the way. I've been expecting it, sniffing for it every morning for the last couple of weeks. It comes early here in the high desert, and it always makes me a little bit sad. I love summer so much, and winter last so darn long. I'm not ready to think about fire wood and snow boots already. But since it looks like we'll be here for at least part of the winter now, we need to prepare. Drat! Double drat! We so wanted to be in Oregon by now. Sigh...

At least we have the Ethiopia trip to keep us excited and occupy our thoughts. There's so much to do to get ready, and like it or not, November is right around the corner. I'm putting together my fundraiser now. I hope to have it ready to roll sometime this week. It will be sweet and simple, and you won't believe the awesome stuff you might win as a Thank-You Gift. Some of my very best necklaces... another sigh as I let them go in the name of a wonderfully good cause. This year there's something more exciting about November than just turkey. Thanksgiving in Ethiopia is a pretty big deal!

Would you like a little preview of some of the fundraiser prizes? OK!
