To the left of the globe is a sign up sheet for Christmas wishes. So far no one has shared what they wish for. I hope some do.

I love my students, I really do. I just wish they weren't so nice as to share germs with me. Home sick today. It is not fun. I want to be out taking lots of photos of this October snow. I'll have to settle for these shots out the windows. Happy fall, y'all.

Earlier in the day it was time for treats for some of the adults. Janice, Tom and I went in search of a winery. We found this one, Ashley Lynn, near Mexico, NY. They also have a place on Seneca. The wines are all apple based and very sweet. I think Tom really likes them. As you can see the place is also a fruit stand. They also have local cheese and honey and other products. We highly recommend the cheddar from the big wheel of cheese.
Sunday morning the kids enjoyed playing with the leaves as we packed up to head home. This one was trying to escape her grasp in the wind. Carrying it back to Grandpa required a lot of concentration.

We asked around town and the story we got is that this man came to meet someone he had met online. He had flown into Elmira and gotten a ride to town from there. We will never know the end of his story. I sure can imagine lots of them though.

The first pic is of the car that the blue jays were bombing. The second is dear ol' Beecher House, location of my current office. (Let's see this makes office number 10 that I have had on the MU campus.) The windows that you see on the far left are mine.

I visited the building my husband is pulling cable in to check on him today. Creative use of a 5-gallon pail, don't you think? I am glad that is not my desk he is sitting on. (Photo taken with my cell, then emailed from phone to my baby computer for upload to blog. Sorry for the poor quality.)

I was literally "seeking balance" on Saturday afternoon when I accompanied my students to a ropes course. I later made it to a height of 37' feet off the ground. Made it up there, but couldn't stand up so just rode back down. It was quite an experience!

It was so good to have Sam home for a visit. He said he had a good time and got to see people that he wanted to see. He hopes to be back again in June. Who knows where he will be between now and then. Here is a picture of us at the Elmira airport this morning. Hugs are better than pictures, but this will have to do for a while.

Sunset from the Tioga-Hammond Overlook this past Monday.
We had friends over for a leisurely dinner. It went something like this:
- Hugs and greetings.
- Shrimp kabobs from the grill, cheddar biscuits, and a green salad.
- A break for conversation and a tour of the house.
- Steaks from the grill that had been marinated in beer, brown sugar and some spices served with baked sweet potatoes.
- More conversation and a trip to the Overlook and the Outlet in my Jeep with the top down.
- Back to the house for a delicious pumpkin-spice cake with cream cheese icing baked and provided by our guests.

While I was gone last week, all of my stuff at work was moved from one building to another. Now, I knew when I went in that I would have to unpack boxes and arrange my furniture. I did not expect this. My desk was in the place I asked them to put it in, but it had no legs! I just had to laugh.
After waiting until 9:30 for someone to show up to put them on (I went into work at 7:00), I called Hubby and said, hey, what do I do now?
He suggested I use my exercise ball. So i did.
With the center drawer taken out, I could even put my legs into the knee hole.

I enjoy other's blogs, so I decided to start my own. I make no commitments to a regular posting schedule, my life just doesn't work that way. Not sure what I will post or when. Hope you enjoy this journey with me.
This is sort of a weird day to start a blog. I woke up at about 1 this morning with a bad migraine. Hubby got me my medicine and I was able to go back to sleep after a while, but still a bit off my game today. Maybe more later.
