  1. Good morning and a (correct) Bonne Anniversaire to DJ.

    It is another sunny and warmish day here. Normally, November is generally considered a gloomy month, but it has been far from gloomy these past few days. I went for a walk along our road yesterday evening, and saw a flick of turkeys grazing in a nearby hay field; no wonder we have heard the coywolves in full cry along the hunting trail the past couple of nights. A little further along, the sun was casting the last of its golden rays across a green rolling field of winter wheat. Winter wheat is planted in the fall and it sprouts and puts up green shoots before the snow comes, so it is almost the only green growing thing at this time of year when all the plant top have died off and the trees have cast their leaves. The sprouted wheat is buried by the winter snow, and then in the spring, it sprouts again, growing rapidly and ripening by July, which allows a timely harvest before the wheat can be threatened by frost. I always think of winter wheat when I read Jesus’s parable: “Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it cannot bear fruit.”

    While I find the photo pretty, IT’S TOO EARLY FOR SNOW! We’re having a warm fall, though. &0s today and for the next few days. We’ll take advantage of it and get out in the sun for some Vitamin D.

  4. Happy birthday, DJ! I hope it’s a nice one (and a day off).

    I agree that the photo is lovely . . . somewhere else. I did warn my husband that in looking through old photos, I found shots from the last two years, November 10 one year and November 11 the other, with a couple of inches of snow. Last year it was actually our biggest snowfall of the season. As for now, we’re expected to be into the 70s today (we have gotten there or close the last three days, also), and I think the next few days are also supposed to be warm. I’ll take it.

  6. thanks for the birthday wishes.

    We had about a 30-minute downpour earlier this morning but I slept through it — I’d been up at 5:30 to feed the cat and fell back into a deep sleep after that, the rain apparently came from 7-7:30 and I wasn’t awake until 8.

    Now it’s sunny and windy outside, but everything is nicely watered. it’s supposed to rain some more throughout the morning, according to the hourly forecast.

    I gave in and watched a Hallmark Christmas movie last night, it was a nice escape. Talked to a couple friends on the phone, texted with my friend in the Valley — she’d just gotten her hair colored and cut so she was sending me photos. I sent her a photo of my long hair now, but also of my Pandemic Top Knot where that long hair stays twisted in an elastic band for most of the time, just to keep it out of my way. πŸ™‚

    I see Biden has made it over the top, officially. Seemed like he had enough of a margin that recounts here or there would not have changed that outcome. What a week, indeed.

    I was reading a column by Russell Moore last night who suggested the divided state of our nation isn’t changing anytime soon, although we always hope with a “next election” it might. It’s a situation we will all have to live with and through for the time being, but never forgetting to keep our eyes on the more important truth of Christ.

  7. Happy birthday, whenever it actually was, to you, Roscuro

    Coywolf howls would be an ominous soundtrack to a nighttime walk. I walked the dogs rather late last night, around 9 p.m., and it was very windy and quite isolated out in the neighborhood. But we saw no coyotes. I kept it short anyway. It had kind of an eerie feeling with the strong winds, the new chill in the air and rain on the way.

    But I do love the rain.

  8. Good morning.

    Happy birthday, DJ, and a belated happy birthday to fill-in-the-blank. πŸ˜‰

    Cheryl, check yesterday’s daily thread for my reply to your post about gluten-free products.

    It’s been sunny and pleasant this week, with temperatures in the 60s and now predicted to reach the low 70s today, tomorrow, and Monday. Then it will be back down to the 40s for the next week, which is pretty typical for this time of year. I am enjoying the atypical warmer weather right now, though!

    Piano lessons are coming along well. Student #23 started two days ago, and, for the first time in a few months, I don’t have any new ones “in the works.” That’s OK. Now I can get settled in with the new bunch — can’t believe I’ve gotten 13 new students since June! — and continue enjoying the “old bunch,” lol, along with them. πŸ™‚

    Homeschooling: I have different ideas in the works for adaptations to our homeschooling format. We’re in our second year of a change in curriculum / methodology, so I think it’s far enough into something “new” to have gained some perspective on whether things are working or not. What I see is that some things ARE working and some are not.

    Not an earth-shattering revelation by any means, but what isn’t working is important enough to warrant another change in approach with that particular aspect of our overall format. Not a complete overhaul again, but a targeted change to part of it.

    I’m using a lot of words here without telling you anything. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your day, all, and be blessed.

  15. Janice, I love lemon Larabars — and alliteration apparently. πŸ˜‰ (Ha, did it twice in one sentence without trying!) πŸ˜› Either the lemon or the cashew Larabar is my favorite. I’ll sometimes buy a box of each and stash one box in my Monday teaching room and one in my Thursday room at the studio to snack on between lessons. Usually I’ll take 2 or 3 out of one box and exchange them with the same number from the other box so I’ve got both flavors in whichever room I’m teaching in for the day.

    Kare, 12:33, thanks, I’m surprised and happy about it too! Up until this year, I didn’t feel like I was gaining much ground in improving as a teacher. I had amassed such a small pool of students since returning to teaching in 2014 after an 11-year hiatus (except for teaching piano to my own kids from 2003-2014). Students are so diverse, and when you only have one or two in addition to your own child(ren) — and 6th Arrow has been my only child studying piano with me since 2014 — there isn’t as much variety or teaching time involved that can diversify and strengthen your skills.

    As difficult as 2020 has been for a number of reasons for many people, what with covid and lockdowns and such, I think the timing of being asked last December whether I’d like to teach as an independent contractor at my colleague’s studio turned out incredibly well. I got my first four students there in February, then covid and the state lockdown roared onto the scene the next month, drying up music lesson inquiries for everyone I know, including myself.

    But by May, when the lockdown was lifted and so many people were tired of all the restrictions that had been in place, music and lessons — especially in-person lessons, which I was offering (some teachers wanted to continue doing virtual lessons only) — started to be viewed as a respite from all the stress of the previous months. The phone started ringing again, especially at that studio, which has been well-known in our area for over 30 years. God had opened a door for me 6 months before that, and little did I know how it would impact my life in such an otherwise tumultuous year that included the deaths of three significant-to-me people.

    For the first time in perhaps decades, I don’t have seasonal affective disorder. (That usually starts late September / early October, intensifies in November, and continues until around early May when warm weather returns and things begin to green up again.) I’m finding joy and peace — “I’m finding,” as opposed to “I have found,” meaning it’s still a work in progress — in what the Lord has placed in front of me, even while challenges are present in them.

    God be praised for all He does as He walks us through the seasons of our lives.

  25. There have not been a set of twins born into my family since my great grandmother gave birth to twins boys, when her daughter, my maternal grandmother, was in her early teens. They did not survive. It is often said that infant mortality was historically so high that people became accustomed to losing children. That was not the case – the deaths of her young twin brothers haunted my grandmother to the end of her life, and from what her mother wrote of her life, she too remained permanently affected by it.

    We knew two different homeschooling families with identical twins. In one set, one of the twins had cerebral palsy, but was still able to walk and talk, and so it was easy to tell them apart despite the similar appearance. The other set I was not around enough to learn to tell apart, although they both have taken different career paths. We also knew grown up identical twin brothers, both farmers with families. They looked and sounded alike – with the exception that one was missing a limb due to an accident – but had completely different manners and personality. One was quiet and spoke slowly with a slight stammer. The other was assertive and spoke in clipped, confident tones. Even without the missing limb, it was impossible to mix them up.

  28. I have identical twin first cousins once removed. They were born when I was 12 or 13 and I saw them at least twice when they were babies (once at their home in Texas, and at least once at ours); their father, my mom’s nephew, did a good job of keeping in touch with her. They were mirror twins, so one was left-handed and their hair parted differently, but I think they were otherwise quite similar.

    I once had a pair of identical twins in my cabin when I was a camp counselor. Someone who knew them explained that the way to tell them apart was that one of them had a chicken pox scar on her forehead. Since that scar could only be seen in particular lighting (more likely outdoors), not seeing that scar didn’t confirm it was the other twin. We happened to have another pair of identical twins at camp that same week.

    Most of the identical twins I’ve known, I’ve known in adulthood and have known only one. I had a housemate in Nashville who was, a church member in my Chicago church and one in my local church, and a co-worker in Chicago. The fellow Chicago church member, her sister lived locally, and I was regularly hearing stories from someone at church coming up to her and saying, “A few days ago I was walking downtown and I saw you and started talking to you, and you looked at me like you didn’t know me, and then I realized it was your sister.” (Hey, those of us who aren’t good at remembering faces . . . perfect alibi!)

  29. One of my professors told a story about identical twins who were both in the nursing program some years ago. One was a good student and one was not. The one who was a good student would take her twin’s ID and write her exams. Of course, when the school finally figured out what was going on, there was serious repercussions, as cheating will get you turfed out of the program. What a waste of effort for the twin who was a good student.

    I had identical twin boys as piano students years ago, but they didn’t both start at the same time (one of the twins started at the same time his older, non-twin brother did, so when the other twin started, I could “tell the twins apart” by their level of advancement).

  39. Kare, I was going to ask what DD twins are, but then saw your next post identifying them as DIDI twins.

    Sorry, but I am clueless about this. πŸ™‚

    Liked by 2 people

  40. DIDI stands for dichorionic diamniotic. The chorionic membrane is outermost membrane of the placenta, so diochorioinc mean each twin has their own placenta. The amniotic fluid surrounds the developing baby – the ‘water’ that breaks in labour – and diamniotic means that the twins have separate amniotic sacs. But, as Kare mentions, having di/di twins only indicates that the twins are likely to be fraternal or dizygotic- meaning the twins are from two seperate zygotes (fertilized ova) – and less likely to be monozygotic, identical, meaning from the same fertilized ova. It is possible that the fertilized ova in a monozygotic set of twins could divide so completely so that each twin would have their own placenta and amniotic sac , but identical twins are more likely to share a placenta and/or amniotic sac because they are from the same zygote. Fraternal twins are from different zygotes and thus will always have separate placentas and amniotic sacs.

    Liked by 2 people

  41. Ultrasounds can tell the number of placentas and amniotic sacs in a pregnancy, but they cannot give genetic results to see if the twins have the same chromosomal makeup. So, it is only possible to tell by ultrasound whether one is having di/di, mo/di, or mo/mo twins. The last two combinations are only found with identical twins and are quite high risk combinations, since one twin is usually deprived of placental nutrients by the other in a mo/di combination and in mo/mo the twins are at high risk of being tangled in each other’s umbilical cords. But since di/di could be either fraternal or identical and is also the most common combination found with twin ultrasounds, it is a matter of wait and see at birth to see for certain if they are identical or fraternal. Now, if the twins are different sexes on ultrasound, that is an obvious fraternal set, because identical twins have the same chromosomes and thus cannot be different sexes.

    My prayer call went longer than an hour. This time there were only two of us. The Sunday call is devoted to praying only for the church, our own and all churches, without praying about anything related to politics. The two of us were able to do that, but had others been with us I think there would have been difficulty in sticking with the framework. I have an idea that the others at this particular time would not have been able to keep politics from creeping in. Our other prayer calls cover everything.

  64. A friend on Facebook shared a video from a minister who was full-on pro-Trump, and was very worked up about the election. He went so far as to strongly insinuate that if you didn’t vote for Trump, then you are against God. 😦

    As for Facebook censoring conservatives, I am still seeing a lot of far-right stuff that a few of my friends post. My concern would be that we could end up with conservatives on one kind of social media platform and liberals on another, and become even more divided.

  65. We just returned home from church and our study was Psalm 2…very good Word!

    Kizzie I don’t see too many bombastic posts from Trump supporters but more informative ones such as from Ben Shapiro/Matt Walsh/David L Harris. After each one of their posts, facebook places a sort of β€œfactcheck qualifier” post of their own leading the viewer to β€œtheir news”. What is interesting to me, when I see a post supporting Biden I see no such β€œqualifier” from facebook.
