Good evening,

Yes, I do have vacation brain, it took a few hours to get moving at work. I have to be back bright and early and here it is the crack of midnight. My wife and I were learning how to use her new phone, and stayed up later than planned.

I hope you all had a great day.

Good night all.

Life has been very busy here and so not even time to do more than just say hello and good bye.
Hope you are all well. I am fine expect for my knee, it decided to go for a walk without me and is still sore as a result. It does not like stairs, so I have not been in the staff lunch room all week since it is up a very long set of stairs. Walking around is OK, but not bending. Anyway, that is my whine for the day, have to go. Working 8:30 to 4 today.
Have a great day.
Oh dear so sorry to read about your hurt knee. I hope you are not in to much discomfort and your knee heals soon.

I have been thinking about decorating for Fall a lot lately. I usually begin when the girls go back to school. But I have all of this construction work going on in the house so I'm not sure if I'm even going to pull the decorations out. We'll see what happens. I love your wreath idea!
I hope you feel better soon and have a wonderful day.
Sending hugs and prayers your way!
Thanks HMG. I understand about the construction work! It can be so stressful , I hope it will be over before the start of the christmas season atleast. Glad to hear you are having some cooler temps. We are also back to cool weather although they say the warmth may return later this week. I'm not complaining, warmth and sunshine is so rare here lol!

It has been a busy week. Hubby is on vacation. He moved everything out of our spare bedroom upstairs on Monday, ripped up the carpet, yesterday he wiped down the walls & painted the ceiling. Last night he got a couple walls painted. Hoping to finish the painting before we leave for the weekend on Friday!

Monday night I picked a 5 gallon bucket full of tomatoes & got them all washed up & made some fesh salsa! Last night I ran the rest of them through the strainer & I have about 11 or 12 qt of juice ready to be boiled & canned! AFTER my hair cut!

Tomorrow is my hubby & my sisters birthday! We are planning to go out to eat at a restaurant/tavern where my nieces boyfriend is singing/playing (guitar) - Friday I'm off work - heading to Put In Bay! Wew! What a week! My brother & his whole family are in Put In Bay now (they come home today) - I have been dog sitting for their Mini Yorkie while they have been gone. She is so sweet!!

Yesterday I rec'd the Taste of Home "Comfort Food, Slow Cooker & Trick or Treat time" - I don't know why I was surprised to see it so soon. It made me smile...but it's bittersweet!!! Made me think of everyone here looking so fwd to fall & cooler temps. Gotta love the comfort foood time of year. Mmmmm!

Hope you are all having a great day!!
Sounds like your hubby is doing a great job on that spare room. I love hearing about everyone's home produce....I love salsa! Have a fun time at the tavern and enjoy the live music .

I will have to try making these. We only seem to get pumpkins around October month and even then I think they are just produced for carving as they never seem to have much in them. I wonder if I can substitute it for squash which is very similar to pumpkin......Thanks for sharing the reciepe!

I'm not a big pumpkin pie/pumpkin spice fan myself, but I know a lot of you are!

Thank you all for your kind prayers for DH's finger. He seems to be doing fine this evening. He hasn't said a whole lot about it, so I think he's feeling fine.

What are you're plans for this evening? I'm not going to do a whole lot. I plan on just spending time with DH and the kids, taking a nap, and going to work tonight.

Well, it's off to do dinner and spend time with the family. I'll stop back later. Enjoy your evening! God Bless and keep smiling!
Hope your DH's finger heals quickly , must be painful! Have a good night at work! Hope it goes quickly!

Hope your making lots of progress with your website. No plans yet for today. I am already busy with laundry, unloading supermarket delivery, tidying, breakfast and looking after my little ones......my youngest is keeping extra busy lol! It is also grey here today , it brightened up for a few mins but that soon faded away. Have a good day! xx

Good Morning!

We actually made it to the seaside yesterday. It was a grey and dull day and we just made a quick decision to go around mid day. I actually quite like grey misty days at the seaside, it adds a very mysterious, haunting atmosphere set against the ocean.
It's not the kind of beach where you go into the water but the children loved looking for seashells and building sandcastles. I rather enjoyed getting lost in thought listening to the sound of the waves. It really helped to lift my spirits.

While we were walking through the town , I noticed one card shop had some christmas gift bags and cards out!!!!

Well another dismal, rainy day here and I am not sure what our plans are yet.......

I hope you all are having a good week. Weekend almost here again!
