I am a bit behind - I had surgery a couple of weeks ago and I'm just now getting things back to "normal" for me. I have taken on several cleaning jobs and that's gone well. My oldest daughter just found out that she is in the the choir for the spring play. She is excited!

Football is over, and I'm finishing up a parenting class. It's been really good and I have learned a lot!


Meal list:
Mon.- sloppy joe's, chips, green beans
Tues. - black bean soup
Wed. - breakfast for dinner - eggs, ham, hash browns, fruit, biscuits
Thurs.-loaded baked potatoes
Fri. - lasagna, salad
Sat. - fish, butternut squash, brussel sprouts
Sun. - pork roast, sweet pork & beans, carrots

I hope all of you are doing well. I'll try to catch up on posts this week!

We are supposed to have tiny bits of snow Friday and Saturday this week! It's been a bit colder the last week or so, so we are tryng to get all the winter stuff done ASAP.


Love to all,

Dawn

    Stopping by to say hi. I've been gone a while, but we're all doing OK. Our garden is basically finished - just a few marigolds hanging on tight. Our September was really cool and wet, so my tomatoes fizzled early. I've been trying to do weekly meal plans lately, but your post just reminded me that I haven't made one for this week. Oops. Oh well, we plan to be gone Wed - Sat, so I guess I can manage two days without a plan. :) And yes, I remember the Judds. Haven't every been a fan of country music, but I have had friends that are. Have a good week!

    I have two grandsons in marching band and reading of all their competitions/activities surely makes me wish I was back near them! I'm glad you are enjoying your kids. Wonderful!

    Hi there! We’ve already had a bit of snow, but thankfully we put the gardens to sleep right after I returned from TX. And I got tulip and daffodil bulbs planted a couple of weeks ago. Yards are cleaned up, carport tidied. Wood (6 cord) is all split and stacked ... no, I don’t do that bit!, hubby and SIL do. We are enjoying some nice fall days of late, lots of sunshine, pretty golden leaves falling all around. I love fall ... and pumpkin everything! I’ve made and canned 3 gals of applesauce these last two days. :)

    There are so many troubling things around us. I guess there always have been. That is why our future is so bright!

    Hope you enjoy the visit. Something yucky is going around here too -- sore throat, ears full, etc. I used Sudafed and drunk a bunch of vitamin C smoothie to knock it down before it could knock me out. But I think it was the prayer that overcame it bc at a certain point it felt inevitable yet I did not succomb. May God heal you!
