a little swipe

hello again...
today i went to get some photos printed. some of the Balloon Fiesta, my Jemez Mtns fall foliage and of course our adventure int he maze this weekend. as i was telling Marsha bout doin' that, she asked that i enlarge the photo posted here. i had forgotten about it and knew i'd come across it once i looked at the photos to choose to print. of course Marsha and i talked about all the photos we are taking of Madison and how embarrassed she'll be once she's older...lol but Marsha said that's all we really get to do...O goodness...well i caught Madison just in time to swiping her nose. when i was shooting the photo i thought maybe her nose was just itchin'. needless to say in the 8x10 enlargement, it was very clear she had a running nose. i had just turned my head towards Madison when she was doing this and quickly snapped the camera with no time to adjust to get more of her head. i just wanted to catch the spontaneous moment in action as i prefer doing, and this is what i got. she tickles me pink, she's soooo cute....
in the meantime, her Grammy, Marsha, is finally realizing that we women can do almost anything a man can do. we were talking about her furnace on saturday and she made a statement to that affect. when i first met Marsha her only response always was to find a man to do the "manly" work. i don't know if it's been because she's been hanging out with me or coupled with other things in her life, but she's waking up to realizing women can do it too. i just fixed the handle on the toilet. that was a piece of cake. i'll relay that event to Marsha this afternoon, just so i can keep letting her know we can do it. the handle today was nothing, but it was a small reminded how i like to doodle with things at times around the house. it's nice to know i can handle it without calling the landlord. and i'm into empowering women to do whatever they desire, no matter what it is, i say GO FOR IT!!!
now, this afternoon i stopped by the church for a moment. first i got a card from Rev Marty, the male candidate for our ministry. another thank you note from one of the candidates. i also got a card from Rev Lynn, the first candidate to arrive at our door steps. in conversation this afternoon with a couple other people, i recognized that i need to stay with my first choice of candidate which is Rev Lynn. that came on the heels of waking up this mornin with her in my heart. the conversation surrounded all three candidates and something someone else said brought back to me how powerfully impressed i was by Rev Lynn and what she would bring to our church. i'm already in the midst of making a thank you card for her note. i'll let her know she's still in my prayers to be our minister. i have no clue really who will win the job offer, but i pray it is someone who well grounded spiritually of which i don't think one of the candidates was. of course you know this already. the suspense may kill me...lol...but i will say my prayers daily. Rev Marty's card came at the right moment, right time today. i had let go the angst i had regarding him. the card may help me should he get to be minister. i hadn't expected any of the candidates to remember me, but they all have. being there for the entire weekend(s) while they were there, i guess they got to know me a little. God bless them all. I know Divine right action is taking place.

What a priceless picture. I've been catching up on you. Love the entry about the Maze, pictures and all. Nice to see some pics of your son and his wife as well. I'm sure I'll be doing the worry routine when my SIL ends up there after Christmas.

I can't get over this pic. it's one of those rare moments. (Hugs)Indigo
