It cannot get any better !

We are having the most beautiful weather! The mornings are nice and cool high 40's and low 50's with beautiful skies, the afternoons are in the 80's with lots of sunshine and light breezes. I do not think it can get much better!

A scary day but a silver lining !

We had tornados and severe thunderstorms yesterday. It was scary! Thank goodness no one was hurt,that I know of. We have lots of limbs down and part of our privacy fence but no serious damage. My Granddaughter told me this morning " Grandma, you would have been proud of me, my friends at school were crying and screaming, I got them in a circle and started praying and the tornado went over my school With out touching down. I am proud of her and that she knows that she can turn to God when troubles come!

A Beautiful October !

I do love the weather we are having! Today is sunny with a high in the 80's. We have had several days when the high only reached the 60's. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets!

October 1st and Boating weekend !

It is the 1st day of October and I am so excited, it is my favorite month of the year! We are suppose to be in the 50's this weekend, pumpkins are already everywhere, festivals will be all month! A fun time! This past weekend was a boating event for our classic boat club. We were in Central Fl. at a small lake. It was a great time with boating, skiing, steamed crabs one night, Barbeque ribs and chicken the next, live music,dancing and ending Sunday morning with a breakfast buffet!

It is almost here !

I have my gold plates on the plate racks, my autumn centerpiece on the table, I filled a fruit bowl with little pumpkins, gourds & acorns for the bar, I have my autumn candles out, added some gold ribbons to my cut-glass candle sticks on the buffet. This weekend we are suppose to have lows in the 60's and highs only in the 80's! I plan on making my pork
roast with apples and cabbage in the crockpot. I am in the mood for fall!

Getting ready for Fall !

My neighbor surprised me with this beautiful wreath she made. I love it and as if I was not already in the mood for fall decorating I am now for sure!
I will be busy today pulling out my other fall decorations and putting away the summer things. It does not feel much like fall yet but I know it is coming. I also plan to fill my pantry with the fixins for making chili and stews and of course pumpkin flavored coffees and hot chocolate! When the cool weather gets here, I will be ready!
