Busy today with bookkeeping, housecleaning, taking several boxes of things to the Salvation Army, and getting some snacks for tomorrow---we're having a friend in for a visit and some movies. It feels so good to sit down and visit with you all. Summer is well and truly over, because we also took out the window air conditioners today. We have windows open all over the house to let the autumn air in. It should be great for sleeping tonight! And I'm looking forward to having Monday off from work. We had thought about going to a film show in NYC with a friend of ours, but with all the train problems between Boston and New York, he decided not to go---so we're having him in for movies here tomorrow instead. I scheduled Monday off because the train doesn't get back to Boston until past 11 p.m., and I couldn't see myself getting home past midnight and getting up early for work the next day. But as it is, we'll be staying home tomorrow, but I still have Monday off!

I'm sitting in our "library nook" that I posted the picture of, and it's so relaxing to sit here with no TV and the windows open, listening to the night insects. Since it's getting dark earlier, it seems later than it is. It's a perfect place to spend some time with you. From here, I'll almost be able to touch the Christmas tree when it's up.

what a game! I only was able to see the last half but my heart was is my throat the whole time. The final score was 44 to 41 the Dawgs won but it was a close one....Next week we play Tennessee and it will be on ESPN will be watching that one!

We are about to eat dinner and it smells wonderful. Jordan is also doing a lot better thank goodness and james is doing good too. We are approaching his first birthday in November and he is about to take his first steps any day now..Then we will really have our hands full! Well I hope everyone has a great evening. I need a sedative after watching this last game!

Thank you! We always have a great time with this friend. He's so kind and thoughtful. We haven't seen him for months, so he insists on bringing a birthday cake tomorrow (our birthdays were in June and July).

I miss talking to you all and have had a great time here. Tomorrow I go home again and will catch up when I get back again.

Both my boys are going to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we already got their costumes. Unfortunately, my boys are past the cute stage for costumes.

I've read a few of the Alex Delaware novels out of order - really should start that series from the beginning. Reading in order is good! I wanted to read the Gabriel Allon series ever since earlier this year when the last one that came out was number one on the bestseller's list. Enjoy your books!

That was some of the best times I had with my first born when he was newborn, just sitting on the couch in the middle of the night listening to some soft classical music on the TV just rocking him. One of my favorite memories. Enjoy every moment!!!!

Hubby normally does this dinner; I just cook the rice! I hope everyone has great day. Some of your plans sound so inviting and fun! We have good weather again today, so fallish, cool and just plain wonderful!
I hope this finds you better! It stinks that you ended up with a residual headache - they are so irritating. Your meal sounds so good! Enjoy your fall days! {{{HUGS}}}
