Latest New Richland, Minnesota, weather

Do you ever have a discombobulated season when you don't know if you are coming or going? Or maybe you are just in the middle - wondering what all is going on?

This is the season that is busy beyond belief, and the weather doesn't always cooperate, and help doesn't always come easy. 

There are so many things that "come to mind.” Here is an example.

God - Church.

Weather - Plans to go to my daughter, Keralyn’s, in the cities to bake cookies with the kids.

Ingredients and supplies for cookie baking.

Time - to go to New Richland after church to attend the benefit for little Isaiah.

Isaiah - with hope and prayers.

Mom - Stop to check to see how she is doing.

Ice Skating - 3:30 family affair.

Stories that need more - Christmas in the Country in Ellendale, Bingo, The Elf, Kids Bingo this week in Geneva.

Santa’s visit.

Christmas shopping not done - still thinking.

How many Christmas cards do I need?

Holiday plans – Who, what, where?

Food – always food. Too much.

People I haven't seen in a while. What a difference a year makes.

Jim’s Thanksgiving

Toody - missing her from the family Thanksgiving table.  There was her empty chair.

People - good in everyone - who keeps giving and helping.

Strangers - are never strangers.  Wonder what they are thinking or feeling.  Why?

"Lounging pants" - are they really for outside wearing?

Tattoos - temporary would be better.

Piercings - shouldn't but it does leave negative feelings.

Colored hair.  Fun way to be different that only lasts for awhile.

Braids - How long have some let their hair grow?  Are they ever tempted?

Mallory - At 11 she had cut her hair 4 times for "Locks For Love.”

Ice skating- portray a positive image and role model to the public

Looking at a "stack of stuff to do” but taking a friend shopping. What's more important?

People look so happy like they are really enjoying all the "hoopla" and preparation for this special day.

Only a fraction of "What Comes To Mind.” What comes to your mind?

Everyone's thoughts will be different, and most don't realize how many things they think about even in one single day.
