The first week of autumn has quickly flown past and Christmas will be here before we know it. It always seems as though once Halloween is here the others are right behind. It seems hard to imagine. I can remember as a child that I thought the days would never come.
The other day I was merrily working on a project in my sewing room and I happened to see something flit across the yard. Upon closer inspection this is what I noticed it was.
A Roadrunner!!! We have them occasionally and it was a delight to see him/her in the yard. I guess there are advantages of not having a dog.
My DIL celebrated her 35th birthday today and her request was for a set of towels with her name on them so that no one else would use them. This is what I made up for her.
We will be busy babysitting nine of our grandchildren for the next four days. Their parents will be out of town and we are delighted to have them. Needless to say, there will not be a lot (if any) of computer time during that period.
After that we will be one vacation for a few weeks. We are headed to England and Scotland via the QM2 from New York. This is a late celebration of our 40th anniversary. We are terribly excited about going and looking forward to visiting with some dear friends. I have a few hand sewing projects lined up to take along with me.
While we are away we will be adding another grandchild to our family. It will certainly make the return trip exciting knowing that we will get to meet him or her once we get home.
I will miss catching up on what is going on out in blog world, but will do so as soon as we return. Please all take care while we are away as I don't want to read any bad news when I get home.
