changing colors for fall

I have good reasons for not blogging lately.  I have (all of a sudden) a real social life.  I have my kids that demand more and more of me.  I have a husband that likes hot meals and clean underwear.  I have a cat that woke me up last night for some serious petting because I guess I just don’t pet her enough during the day.  I have someone that I am going to give private conversational English lessons to once a week.  I am helping out a friend and it takes about three hours of my week to do so…But, I am so happy to do it for them.

That is where I am now.

I am good and busy.

I am happy.

I miss my oldest daughter back in the States something awful.

I miss Ohio.  Did I just write that????  I do.  I miss Ohio, in the fall.

I miss my family.  So very, very much.

I don’t want to leave Switzerland.  I just wish they could all come and live here with me.  :)

I would, also, love to wrap an Ohio autumn up in a package and send it right here to me!

This American street singer sung Mr. Bojangles in Neuchâtel and I had a lot of trouble holding back the tears. It is funny what makes me miss “home”. He gave all the kids that smiled a beautiful balloon. Happily, all three of my youngest kids got a balloon that day. :)  Two years ago, they did not.

I am changing my colors for fall.  My colors are happy and deep in reflection.

How about you?

    Oh how I love the fall colors. I had been dreaming of finding some Aspen groves while we were on vacation and today I finally and totally got my wish… So yes I am seeing the fall colors up in the moutains near Lake Tahoe/Nevada border. It’s all so beautiful and wonderful for sure!

    I do hope you have lots of colors around your house! We won’t have much as clutter is not really needed right now when we need to get ready to move! Not sure where yet though…

    Love seeing all of your pics as usual. I hope to get some up within another week! Come visit my post and see if you want to participate!

      Hello, Anne! I plan on blogging more even if it is just to say what I have been up to with a photo or two. :D

    Last year ,when you were desperate to find a job , I suggested to your husband through his blog that you should give english classes to others …because I knew lots of people want to learn to speak english fluently .and now i am glad you did it . If I had the chance to live near your home , surely , I would have asked you to become my teacher for english conversation :D
    I am a vietnamese lady and I live currently in Clermont Ferrand in Auvergne and I have been fan of your blog since a long long time ago .

      Thank you, Nghi, for your comment. I am looking forward to starting next week. The woman I am giving classes to is just so sweet. It would have been nice to have been able to speak with you in English too!! :)

      Take care.
