Heart of December

 I haven't been here in a while. Busy at work, holiday stuff and lack of motivation on my part. We purchased some of these ornamental vegetables from the school class fundraiser to brighten up the winter yard, and they did just that.
Last night the students from our high school held a candlelight vigil at the park. The names of the children of Sandy Hook Elementary school were read and the choir sang Amazing Grace. Today, at the request of the Sandy Hook PTA,  these students are making snow flakes to decorate the halls of a building that will become the new school for Sandy Hook. No words, just lots of glitter and sparkle. They want the stark hallways transformed into a cheerful happy environment. Here's the address if you want to help:

Connecticut PTSA 

60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103

Hamden, CT 06514

Here's a link explaining it.
