|Seven years blogging, my first bathroom shot.|
Nothing was stopping this girl. She decorated the chalkboard and helped to hang the
felt birthday banner. Really good printing too. Those are streamers on the bottom.
When we were done cleaning we cooked. The night before we had made Dutch Oven Bread to bake for the spinach dip Penny whipped up. She helped to roll little hot dogs in crescent rolls but left making the pizza to Grandma.
The sun came out for the first time all weekend, just as the sun was about to set on Sunday.
We sure do miss that girl when she heads home. There is quite the prolonged goodbye and last kisses and things to tell us before she heads home with Mom and Dad. What a gift, my children, their sweethearts and our girl. Makes for very tired and happy Grandma and Grandpa.
November 6th, the temp was about 35 degrees, We bundled up and had a brisk walk. Alone in the garden, at last!
The garden sparkles in the Autumn light.
Not for long, it was cold, and our bodies have to acclimate to these colder temps.
I have a little Polar Bear blood in me, I love the cold and look forward to some winter outings.
When I was young we used to ski, that was my first real experience in the cold.
Not like when you'd walk home from school, or make a snow fort or snowball fight, but extended time in the cold. I loved it. I think I could still ski, but I would not be able to get up if I fell.
God knows if my hips would hold, or my knees. Walking in the cold will have to do.
Sewing machine fixed and Kristen's sewing machine I also broke is fixed too. Why is it that when you can't do something, (like when your sewing machine is busted) that is all you want to do?
I have a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving prep will start. Until then, if I'm not at the Garden,
I'll be sewing!
Thanks for stopping by my friends.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
