you've heard of a snow-delay?
this blog had a "first week of school delay".
here's the belated top 5 from a busy week:
5. getting back into routine. the first day of school is like jumping into a pool of cold water, but a predictable schedule is not all bad.
4. starting school with a 3-day week instead of 5.
3. working at a joyful school with kind and helpful people.
2. building a classroom of friends.
1. celebrating a loved one's 81st birthday.
i hope your weekend is filled with them.

our niece is a baker, and somehow combines her business with high school,
golfing, and learning to drive.
and cupcakes won awards at the ohio state fair.
here are some entries in different categories.
joy to you!

have you ever been on the sky ride at a state fair?
it's a great way to rest after a long walk in the heat.
you can see the animal buildings, and
enjoy the view.
the food stands look like miniatures.
have you noticed the deep-fried trend at fairs?
hungry for a deep fried snickers bar?
even the animals look like toys.
a peaceful thursday to you.

we visited dear friends who
are moving out of this house.
it's packed with memories from other times when
the children were small, and rode laughing in the golf cart while a special relative drove
up and down the small hills.
there's the ohio river in the background, flowing past this
joy to you.

here's the place where they love their work,
and do extraordinary things.
you can buy a bike or have yours fixed.
if you need customizing, they can do it.
they even added fenders to a little girl's wheelchair.
cool competence and rolling beauty.
joy to you!
