Reminders of the changing season are all around us. It is time to begin a decorating transition in our homes. We can start at our entries, both front and back. Just as a garland of greenery can be draped around our doors at Christmas time, the same idea can be used with sticks, twigs, and grapevine for the fall season.

As I reached to pull it away I realized that it was a fragment of leaf attached to a thin twig attached to a larger twig stuffed inside the vent, not just dangling on the edge.

Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That's what we've done but it has not stopped.
