13 years ago today

My Granddaughter came into this world, into my life 13 years ago today! She is my only Granddaughter, I have 3 Grandsons and as special as they are, there is something about a Granddaughter! As have my Grandsons,she has brought so much joy to my life, as I have said many times, there is not anything else like being a Grandma!

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!

Another Celebration !

Yesterday we celebrated Jim's 76th birthday, it was a wonderful time with the children and grandchildren. I feel so blessed to have such a loving family and so happy that we live so near each other that we can get together so often and especially spend all the special times together!

Day with my Granddaughter !

My Granddaughter and I went shopping yesterday, she needed some more clothes for school and a new swimsuit for Labor day! I got a new haircut with a new stylist it is much shorter than what I wanted but it will grow back and hubby thinks it cute! We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant and even though Mexican is not my favorite food, I had a very nice time with my Granddaughter and enjoyed the meal and especially the time spent with her!

A bit of Fall this week !

This week has been delightful in N. Florida. The temps have been in the 60s in the mornings. I have enjoyed sitting on my porch with my 1st cup of coffee in the cool air. It does not take long to warm up into the 90s. Our weather man says this was just a tease this week, it is still summer after all!

fall is in the air !

It is cooler today and with the lower humidity and breeze blowing it feels like the beginning of fall. I am so ready for it! We took our granddaughter and a friend to the beautiful springs near us yesterday and even though the temps were in the 90's, it was nice with a breeze blowing. As summer comes to an end I am looking forward to the new season and all the fun activities it brings!
