Trellis

clematis trellis

 

He is trellis to her bloom,

hand-carved staircase, cathedral

spire pointing with a steady

hand to where heaven smiles blue.

    Love the photo, love the flowers, love the words; just lovely. When you say going back to school, do you mean you will be teaching or studying?

    • melodylowes says:

      Teaching. I teach K,1,2 – busy but fulfilling. I have an extra load since my classrooms were emptied out for re-painting. But I’m getting closer to student-ready every day! We have had meetings and meetings – and did I mention the meetings? – students are back after the weekend.

    This is exceptional, Melody! Best wishes as you gear up for school!

    • melodylowes says:

      Thanks Debbie! I’m going full-bore, getting things put back in place after being emptied out for re-painting has held me back, but I’m slowly but surely getting ready. πŸ™‚

    I’ve missed your posts. Good to see you back and know you’re ok – just super busy!

    • melodylowes says:

      Thanks, Pam! Yes, I sure don’t have the time or energy to devote to my cyber-life just now. I’m hoping that once things settle in a bit I can strike a better balance. I’m missing it…

    Simply…Beautiful!

    • melodylowes says:

      Thanks Rosy! Nice to ‘see’ you! I haven’t been able to pop in here as much as I would like – am back to work full-time and have to be cautious about my energy expenditures these days. I haven’t forgotten you yet, so not to worry!

      • RoSy says:

        Have been missing you. Darn life outside of the WP – LOL
        Take it easy & I will catch you when you get a chance to post or stop by. I don’t get here as much as I used to & with more kid activities & school starting back next week – I doubt I’ll ever get back to posting – every day. Life happens… πŸ™‚
        Congrats on your FT job & best to you with your new schedule. xo
