...Summer is a done deal, and wow, were we ever treated to a beautiful one this year. It's been many, many years since we could say that! With over fifty days without rain and nice warm temperatures it was as if our little spot in the PNW had been temporarily moved to a tropical island. It was worth the wait, and now as we step in to Fall it looks as though we may also enjoy Indian Summer, my favourite.
...I spent the day with my sweetie-pie grand and we had such a fun time. She is teaching us sign language and I'm beginning to think that saying about teaching an old dog new tricks is true! She was frustrated with me a few times...but we turned it all into fun. There is no physical reason that she needs to know sign language she has just picked it up here and there so her momma bought her a DVD and she just soaks it up. Neat kid that one.
...My daughter found out that she is having a son, due the middle of January. We are so thrilled for her/hubby as they have been working on this for quite some time. I guess after awhile without success it becomes 'work.' So now our little family will grow again and we will welcome a grandson into our clan. Growing up without extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins, grands) just makes it all the more special to me to see my children have their own, close in age, and right across town.
...I've been seeing some cute little pumpkin crafts around the blogs and am going to try, t.r.y. making some of them this week. Hoping to take a nice long walk down to the river and find some interesting filler for my Fall wreath. I probably should do some of that darn summer clean up too but I don't want to tax myself too much! What are your plans this first week of Autumn?
p.s. I had a much better post all ready to go but the powers that be, blogger, are making me crazy. Is anyone else having problems with the new interface?
