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!
