Today, like too many days when the news is bad and people are suffering, I got busy around the house. Praying for peace. Peace, Peace, Peace. Every day is a gift and no days are guaranteed.
Now, Weekend Update.
(To make a long story short, my shoulder hurts, and I like to snuggle, but my shoulder says NO!)
This was not a simple feat, just changing pillows and calling it finished. The whole room was turned upside down and inside out. Side table needed switching, outlets and chargers unplugged and plugged. Not to mention the dust bunnies, ceiling fan and all the other junk that accumulates.

After hours of work, loads of wash and a lot of dust, I was happy with my accomplishment.
Later we went to bed.
Thirty minutes later, we were up and changing things around again.
It was like sleeping on the Moon, so strange.
We could not be happy on the wrong side of the bed.
Back to our regular spots and we slept like babies.
Aleeve helps with the shoulder.
We had hot cider donuts and Penny took a pony ride, again.
We visited a friend's Oktoberfest that evening. Penny made a friend and we got to see our good friends Dot, Kev, Sue and Ron. We will be friends 50 years next year, and am the newcomer. Sue and Dot and our friend Sue K. have been friends since kindergarten. Nothing like the company of old friends.
When it was bed time I asked Penny what was her favorite thing we did today. She said, "Snuggling with you right now." That's the very best part of being a Grandma.
We celebrated dear Charlotte's birthday Sunday with a big green salad and Ho-Made pizza party. Dessert was Pumpkin mini cheese cakes and apple pie. Charlotte made Apple bread, Amanda brought cucumber sandwiches and iced tea. We had a great afternoon together, and everyone went home with leftovers.
Penny made her own pizza!
What a sweet thing to have Sunday with my kids.
No fuss, just fun. Good conversations, I love to just listen.
Hugs and happiness, so grateful for the blessing of family.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
