Hello! I am Donna Lee. I feel like I should introduce myself since I've been gone so long. Why is thiis, you may ask? No real reason. Just life.
How was your summer? I can't believe it's been an entire season. But it is now Autumn. I can tell because we had a N'oreaster over the weekend and today I am wearing a wool sweater.
The easiest way to bring you up to date is to show the images of my summer. It started with the storm that tore up trees and gave us this amazing color
There was blueberry pie!
Lastly, we servived the visit of Pope Francis. I opted to stay out of Philadelphia for the weekend and our agency was closed (which we NEVER do). There were volunteers who stayed and took care of the few small issues that came up.
And now we are beginning my favorite time of year. Our annversary is next weekend (34 years!) and we are attending a wedding that day and then going to brunch the morning after. Hallowe'en follows close and then it's a quick slide through to Thanksgiiving and Christmas.
Work is going well. I still enjoy my job but have had to give up teaching with Handle with Care. Pete is worried that I will get hit in the head and cause problems with my eyes. He never asks me to stop doing things so when he asked this time, I paid attention. I'll organize the classes and help with the verbal deescalation parts but no more physically taking anyone down. This is my baby and I am sad to say goodbye to it. It's been 12 years and I'll miss it but Pete is right.
So, that is what went on over the summer. It sped by as always. How are y'all? Was the summer a good one? I think I am back here. I wasn't sure but I don't think I'm ready to say goodbye. So, 'till next tme, Have a good week!
