Game Nights ...

We love Game Nights, just wonder why we don't have more .... New Years eve kiddo's played a crazy game: QUELF ... last weekend was a bit more subdued, but NOT just your basic Monopoly ... one week ago ~ mini family night ~ initiated the "Build your own Monopoly" w/youngest two kiddos. 
Some of our best times have been our game nights! ... days! 
This weekend is calm as Samantha is getting settled back at college.
Best of luck this semester,


'A Winter's Night'- from Durham Cathedral

I watch the Western sky
The sun is sinking
The geese are flying South
It sets me thinking ...
I did not suffer
What did not kill me
Just made me tougher
I feel the winter come
His icy sinews
Now in the fire light ...
... I look for answers in
The fire's embers
... Another winter comes
His icy fingers creep
Into these bones of mine
These memories never sleep
And all these differences
A cloak I borrow

What is the force that binds the stars?
I wore this mask to hide my scars
What is the power that pulls the tide?
I never could find a place to hide
What moves the Earth around the sun.?... 
The moon's a fingernail and slowly sinking
Another day begins and now I'm thinking
That this indifference was my invention....
