Eliot and I dropped off food for the Religious Education recognition brunch this morning at church. Of course we checked on the blackberries. The blackberry patch at our church is one of the biggest I have ever seen. Every year we collect some. Next Sunday should be a good time for basketfulls.

Beautiful, healthy girl pruning my flowers. She deserves her milk but I may start cutting out daytime feeds and just nurse at night. That is when she gets her bulk of milk anyway.....

We finally changed out our Fall wreath. We collected new flowers and herbs from the yard. Eliot and Ben helped me take the dried plants off and add the new. The smell of the fennel, purple basil, lavender, rosemary is amazing. Why buy a fake synthetic wreath to celebrate the seasons when each year you can design one unique to fit what is growing in your yard.

My Annika is sick. It is testing week and it just wiped her out. Public school testing is not for the children. It is for grading the worth of the school. I am so tired of them pushing the kids so hard for something that does not effect their personal grades. She will stay home tomorrow and "oh well" about the testing she will miss.....
