Happy Sunday


Girly Comments & Graphics

It's been a few days since I've posted. We didn't have many children on Halloween. Just six little ones early in the evening and then later on four teenage girls came by. That's more than we get some years.

After they had been out trick or treating, Brandon and Jordan came to spend the night. We went online and played Monopoly and it was after midnight before we finished. It's very unusual for Brandon to stay up so late and he surprised himself. Jordan is a night hawk, but believe it or not, he was asleep first. Brandon finally went to sleep around 1:30 and was up again before 7am, when he woke his brother. So it was a short night's sleep. Those boys wear me out.

Saturday afternoon, after dropping the boys at home, hubby and I went to a Native craft fair. It is an annual event and we always try to go. We were a bit disappointed this year, as they didn't have the variety they do some years. I picked up a couple of little Christmas decorations and a new leather folder to carry my license and debit cards. It was something that I needed desperately and the price was right.

I kicked myself for not taking the camera along. There was some nice autumn scenery, though many of the trees are beginning to look very bare. At one point we crossed the Grand River and the water was quite high. Along the banks the autumn leaves were colorful. The weather was fairly warm and it was a nice day to be out and about.

Not much other news from here. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the autumn weather. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. ~Blessings, Mary~

  4. I'm just catching up. I noticed you did an awesome job on the renovations. It must feel very good. Our hearts are like that too when we're under renovation. The finished product (room) is well worth the agony and upheaval. We stayed home and safe. We bought dd some candy which is all she really wants from halloween in the first place.

  5. Sounds like you and hubby had a fun day. I love outings like that. Me and my hubby took a long drive today across the river to the Washington side and explored some back roads that we've been wanting to wander down. I'll try to post pictures soon.
    Happy Sunday!

  10. I don't have the Monopoly game but daughter was telling me about it on our trip.
    I am needing a "grands" fix. I've seen them briefly recently but not for long enough. I need to have Princess over for a spend the night. I'm sure I'll see them more in the summer. If they were as old as yours, they could ride their bikes over here. Someday!

    (And as proud as I am to be an American- and I am- I almost envy those of you Canadians who don't have to stress over the current election!) ;)

  14. It has been a lovely weekend but I think the leaves will be all gone in a couple of weeks. The Grand R. has been high for most of the autumn season.

  16. I LOVE the new look....I'm thinking it is a picture of the inner child in you. :)
    And I am glad you had a peaceful weekend. The trees here are all orange and brown...it is still pretty. I met a lady yesterday that told me that this year was beautiful compared to last year. I guess God wanted to show off for a first time viewer. ;) He has done a beautiful job...I have loved it.
