The Fog ~ by Karrlin Bain


The season is changing so quickly... I was loving our 
brilliant sun and vibrant colors of a few weeks ago (see proof here)!!!

  The end of October is now more like this....

The Fog
by Karrlin Bain

The Fog sets in 

Perfection in hiding 
Coating Existence
With Sleep

Silence Sings

Dreamweavers
And Raindrops
Only the Mist
Is to Keep

Finally all else

Falls Further Away
And Softness of Sky
Lingers Deep

Hearts Repair
by Karrlin Bain

People can surprise you
Yes people can change
Don't give up entirely 
Just try to rearrange
Your life to become further
And closer as you read it
Never see them again
If that is what is needed
Just never give up totally
Hope for them through prayer
Trust in goodness overall
Believe in Heart's Repair

I Love Teaching ~ And Art Too ~ A Dinosaur Lesson Plan ~ by Karrlin Bain


~ Blooming Artist ~
by Karrlin Bain

October 4, 2012         ~ I love Teaching... and Art too! ~
Today's Objective: Post a picture (the 1st ever!) to my blog to see if I can do it, save and CELEBRATE all my artistic endeavors from the past:

Okay... don't freak out...  
This is NOT my most recent attempt at being an artist... 
This is a "work of art" that I created  in 2009 while I was a Student Teacher in a second grade classroom.  It is, however, my original artistic work.  : )
I believe it is a perfect rendition of me as dinosaur.
This is a fun lesson for all!
 ~ I love Teaching... and Art too! ~


Really, isn't that where all true ART
begins... when we are lovely children?


There is a book to reference here..... 
I just found the poem for this lesson on this great site:
The book we read (in addition to others) was:
A Dinosaur Named After Me by Bernard Most.

MUMS the Word! ~ By Karrlin Bain

MUMS the Word!!!!!  

This year I said "forget saving money" (...seems I say that a lot...) and splurged (for us~for now) on 2 Fall Mum Plants from the Piggly Wiggly!  I love them!!! 





I remember growing up in our house on Laura Street and every fall the mums would come up.... which means... drum~roll please... YES they are perennials and I must plant mine! Oh yes... back to Laura Street...  Every fall the mums would come up with their leafy greens... then bud... and THEN flower and SMELL SO VERY WONDERFUL along the side of our ranch home on the dead end road.  I am pretty sure the mUm plants that my mOm had planted were a rich brownish rust burgundy color.  They were SO lovely!  I would sniff them like crazy!  Sometimes the flowers would FREEZE with a snow and be FROZEN BEAUTY in time...


Be sure to run and find some now...
 treat yourself this fall!


       Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love
