Long week over





Here's some pictures from Glorieta I took last week. Aspens are so pretty when they turn gold.

I started the project Warlords of Japan this week. It'll go to Thanksgiving break. It is involved and keeps me hopping the whole period, with no prep period that makes for a really long day and I don't feel like doing much after I get home except rest. I'll post more once the unit is over.

I miss the aspens. M was really glad to see us when we came home. She seems to be doing well. School is unhappy about how many times she has been absent. I quess I have to go to school to straighten this out.

For all the others reading and not posting. Glorieta is about 20 miles east of Santa Fe. Most of Northern New Mexico is above 6000 foot elevation and aspens grow in abundance.
Glorieta is home to one of the two of the Southern Baptist Convention's Lifeway encampments (the other on is at Ridgecrest NC). It's where Grinnygranny and I met and holds very special memories for both of us as we have been there all our lives.
It is also where Union forces turned back Confederate forces during the Civil War keeping the South from getting gold from Pikes Peak, which is what they were after.
