There's a beautiful fresh floral arrangement on our dining room table. (Well, it's there when someone isn't using the table for school work. The hues of autumn that I love -- crimson, gold, and maroon -- warm the room. The arrangement was sent by Bill's co-workers to cheer him. It was so thoughtful of them.

It was a lovely time, and Bill was even able to sit outside on the patio and get some fresh air. (He's been a little stir-crazy since confined to the house. We were so thankful for and encouraged by their visit.
