If you get simple beauty, and nought else, you get about the best thing God invents. - Robert Browning
To lead a simple life in reasonable comfort, with a minimum of possessions, ranks high among the arts of living. It leaves us the time, resources, and freedom of mind we need for the things that give life value; loving, helping, serving, and giving. - Ernath Easwaran
We finally made it out to the pumpkin patch yesterday. Mai went with her class two weeks ago on about the rainiest day possible, so this was a much nicer time. Then we headed over to my in-laws neighborhood to see a monster house and were at my in-laws' when FIL's physician called with a diagnosis of NPH (Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus). He'll see a neurosurgeon this week. Hopefully a shunt will take care of the symptoms. It's a lifetime shunt that is permanently draining fluid around the brain into the abdomen.
