My mother-in-law is always in my thoughts especially in October when I think about the importance of having screening mammograms. A friend who reads my Blog, told me she was several months behind in having her yearly mammogram and my blog reminded her to get that appointment. I had tears in my eyes thinking that maybe I did one small bit of good with my message.
What are the benefits of screening mammograms?

Can't explain why these pictures came out so bad. Actually I know why, I should have changed some camera settings.
This is what one acorn starts out as. Hand model, Mau.
Mine are sitting on a window sill. Mau bought a small wooden bowl at Crate & Barrel for hers.

Our favorite rower!
The team came in 18th place last year so their bow number & starting position will be 18 this year.
Kelsey & the cocksin each wear the bow number.
Getting ready to board the boat. There was a very cold wind.
Starting the row from the launch site to the start line. They had to row the entire course to reach the start line.
We then took off walking to just past the first bridge to wait for them to race by.

I brought this table runner home with me from a shopping trip in CA. Even the picnic baskets are getting into the Autumn spirit. This box was my paternal grandfathers. I change up the decorations for each season.

According to his Dad, Mick spent 14 hours over the weekend hammering 2,600 nails and screwing in 400 screws.
Oh, I bet you can't wait to see the finished project? Lucky me, I'll be off again this weekend. I'll be watching Kelsey row in Head of The Charles in Boston. Mick will spend his weekend at home installing the 200 boxes & then filling them up. May you have a great Saturday & Sunday!
