It has arrived !

It is September and I am so glad ! I do not think I have ever looked so forward to fall! Even though it is not yet fall, the 1st of September means it is near and I can begin to pull out my fall decor. I am so ready ! This past weekend I picked up some fall candles and new candle holders at Cracker Barrel, another one of my favorite places to shop as well as eat! We also have 2 birthdays in the family this month,hubby and Granddaughter so a lot to celebrate !

A new Simple Pleasure !

We have a new restaurant "Red Robin" so after my Dr. Appointment yesterday I told Him That I wanted to try it and of course he agreed !  We liked it a lot but I am not used to paying 14.00 for a cheeseburger, usually 3.29 at " steak n shake" , our favorite date place! So I ordered the wedge salad and ate a small portion of his cheeseburger with my fresh coffee they brewed for me. It was all very good and we were both stuffed for $21.00 so we will be back, loved the atmosphere too! So glad we are still able to find new places and things we enjoy! Love life's simple pleasures!

Summer's end ! ! !

The 2 oldest Grands with their mother (my daughter)

 The 2 younger ones with me!

Tomorrow school starts back here. I will be driving to my oldest Grandchildrens home early each morning making breakfast for them and driving my granddaughter to school. Grandson will be a senior this year and driving, but I will be there to see him off. It seems like only yesterday that I was taking him to preschool. These years have gone by so quickly. They have been the best years of my life! There is absolutely nothing as wonderful as being a Grandmother! I have 4 of them and each one is special in their own way. I feel so blessed that I have had them be such a big part of my life !

Look what followed us home !

I am now the proud owner of a 1960 Glasspar Tacoma. I have been wanting more of a cruising type boat instead of the fast boat we have. Since my husband put a 100 hp motor on it it goes too fast for my liking (55 mph) so he found this one with a 40 hp Johnson motor and it is red ( my favorite color for a boat) I am excited to be taking this to our next classic boat club meet in September, it is definitely more my speed!
