smiley face



I am at Lake Michigan for a couple of days - retreating and recuperating from the always-hectic spring semester. The stones on my beach blanket are more brown than they show in this photo. I need Don to tell me what kind of stones they are when I get home. (In my family, when we don't know the answer to any question, we say, 'Where's Don when you need him?')

They are happy stones, because they get to be "reflection" of you.

Sandy said...

Awe..... What a cute head you have Ruth and not to mention sweet husband! He sounds like my husband, knows a little bit about everything! I also use my husband as my dictionary. But he usually tells me to sound-it-out! lol Love the fun photo. May rest and joy be yours!

Reminds me of Annie Dillard's Teaching a Stone to Talk "In a cedar-shake shack on a cliff is a man in his thirties who lives alone with a stone he is trying to teach to talk." (you may just have a new blogger ID photo there!)

Lol, neat idea with the stones, have a great time.

Thanks, everyone. I got EVERYTHING I needed, and then some. Filled up with Mother Earth, and sooooo relaxed. The stones were just the beginning. You should have seen me fumbling along through the Rosy Mound nature area in Grand Haven today, besotted with the beech trees and wildflowers. I'll post something about it.

Thanks for thinking my head is cute, Anet. My neck isn't that thick. Part of that is my hand. :D

Hmm, new profile pic, eh, Sharon? I'll think on that.

I'm heading home tomorrow morning.

Oh my, Ruth. I could have sworn that was Lesley's head! SO! When did you get your hair cut! Like mother like daughter! I love it.

We all need retreats like that!

Boots, it's not as short as it looks in my smiley shadow: it actually comes to the bottom of my neck. :)
