Here are a few of the little things I bought at Michaels. Looking at this picture it sure doesn't do it justice. Looks much better in person. I haven't finished my other project yet. I went to lunch with the ladies of my lunch club yesterday. We meet on the last Thursday of each month for lunch. My neighbor has been meeting these ladies for years and when I moved here 6 years ago she invited me to join them. I really enjoy it. We sit there for a couple of hours and just laugh and have the best time. Not much else happened today, other than my workout at the gym. Oh and we met some friends at a bar-be-cue place in town. Boy the meat just melts in your mouth. I had a smoked chicken salad. It was the best! Hope you all have a Happy Halloween. And hopefully I will not be tempted by the "c" word. I didn't buy any since we don't have any trick or treaters at our home.

Today I went to Pier One Imports and found 2 really nice counter stools for the counter in the kitchen. They are wood with a faux suede cover on the seat. They look great and now we can eat closer to the kitchen and not have to eat in the diningroom or on tv trays. I also went to Michael's and they were having a great sale on the fall silk flowers, etc. I got some cute things for around the house to make it more fall like and also for above my kitchen cabinets to accent the items I have up there. I already have some silk flowers and ivy up there but this will add a bit of fall color to it. I haven't put them up yet but will take pictures tomorrow when I do. I also bought some indian corn and gourds. And a scarecrow too. I think I spent a total of $14. I love bargains. That didn't include the counter stools. They were on sale for $99 each. I got 10% off for applying for an application for the store credit card. Didn't make it to the YMCA today cause I had to babysit kids at church but tomorrow I'll be there. Weighed myself yesterday and haven't lost anything more for a couple of weeks. Also, I had a flu shot at the doctors office yesterday and last night I felt like I was getting sick all over again. I thought, Oh no not again. I had sniffles, and body aches and it suddenly went away and all was well. Then I remembered the symptoms that sometimes come with flu shots. Well, hubby is calling. Til next time...

early mornings

Sometimes I wake up very early for one reason or another and since I can't go back to sleep I just get up. I started coughing at about 3am and didn't want to wake my hubby so I got up. I love this time of the morning. The house is so quiet, the cats are snuggly and come a lay in my lap or next to me on the sofa. Everything is still and new. I had a chance to read some of the book I am reading and also checked my email. I tried to doze here on the sofa but Nope! too wide awake now. I am sitting here with my quilt on my lap and and my laptop humming away. Times like this make me glad to be alive. I am happy to be able to just sit and relax. I don't have to worry about getting back to sleep or I will be exhausted at work today. If I get tired in an hour or so, so be it. I'll go back to bed and sleep if I want. Ah, this is the life. Maybe I will have some tea now. Have a blessed day all.....

Here's one of the shots I took the other day at the farm stand near our house. I had to water all my plants today since everything was drying out. Neither one of us thought to water since it is usually raining this time of year. My plants were very happy after their drink. I managed to get my workout in today and also picked up a few items at the store. My neighbor now has my cold. Boo. I feel badly. I am hoping she didn't get it from me. I don't think I was still contageous when I started going to the gym with her. This is a real doozy of a cold. I hope none of you get it. I am still waiting to go to the Haunted House just outside of town with our friends. They asked us to go 2 1/2 weeks ago and I was just getting sick. Fortunately the place will be opened until November 1st. Our friends went without us after about 3 days. She wants to go again. Said it was the scariest thing she'd ever experienced. Also said she almost Pee'd her pants. She would die if she knew I added that. Good thing she doesn't read my blog. Well, I am off to finish dinner. Have a good evening all.
