Rita, enjoy your favorite seafood place. Sounds a lot better than the other place you described. DH and I used to go to a fancy place for our anniversaries every year and get an overnight stay package. That started getting pricey too, and the novelty of it wore off after awhile. 

Had a nice cool temp walk this morning. High 50s. It's up to 72 now but the air coming in the kitchen door feels a lot cooler than that. My bare feet are actually cold. Might have to put some fuzzy socks on. I finished my daughter's potholders last night. I need to work on one more set for her friend, as long as I'm on a roll with them. Then I'll post a picture.

I need to think up something to make for Genevieve's birthday. Her two-year-old party is the beginning of next month. I'm thinking a stuffed toy. I believe I purchased a pattern awhile ago, and really should make it since I spent the money on it. I never keep track of whether I've spent money on online patterns or if they were free ones. So when I go to thin them out I probably toss stuff I've paid for.

Morning, fall is in the air, much cooler and damp, leaves just beginning to color up, and I love how all the flowers are on a sprint to the finish,blooming their hearts out. Can you tell I love fall?

We have changed our mind for the special anniversary dinner, the fancy hotel we were going to just too pricey, and $22 for valet parking, and dinner only fancy "small plates" of little piled up things to share....nope. We are going to our favorite seafood restaurant overlooking the falls, I will get some pictures. BBL

Good morning. It rained overnight. We have had several nights like that htis late summer. It's better than rain all day. It's cooler for a few days now.

Rita it's great that you are popping in now and then.

That soup souds like a corn chowder that I make sometimes. Mine starts with bacon so how could you go wrong. I wondered how the knee did with all your walking. Have fun restocking the shelves of the fridge.

Thel you think of the most fun things for the NH residents. Those glasses are a hoot. I hope they took pics for the residents. Did Buzz get t wear a pair too? Sounds like  abusy day for you with the cleaning and sewing and bathing. 

That Friday the 13th full moon must have the ER's all nervous. It makes me nervous and I'm not even working anymore. 

I got a start on the Christmas present  yesterday. I might get it finished today. It's an in the hoop crossbody bag. (Try saying that 3 times fast). Then I want to try and cut the fabrics for the Stroll in Paris blocks this month. If I get on a roll I may cut some fabrics for a paperpieced quilt. My  mind usually tells me I can get more done than I actually accomplish.

Sophie does pretty well taking her pills as long as they are well hidden in cheese or liver sausage. I think they will get cut down after the effects of her anti inflammatory go away.

Have a great one.

That sounds like fun, Thel! Crazy glasses day. Crazy day. I love it. I think that's why there are so many choices, Thel. So many people like different kinds of PJ's. I like the almost knee length T shirt type. Oh  yeah, I need to get a picture of my jewelry and other goodies. I am addicted to funny jump drives. I have a monkey, a sewing machine or two, lipstick, I don't know what all I have. 

I do need a vacation from my vacation, Kim. we wore me out. Yum, soup. DD1 made a corn soup that was so good. It had potatoes, ham, corn, lots of goodies in it. Yum. 

Chocolate has two pills, and he eats them both with no hiding them. One is the dasiquin, it's like a treat, and the other is pill form. It must taste like meat or something, because we have had pills before we had to hide. I have to pick up another month's worth today. 

Hoppppy Friday the 13th and Harvest Moon! I love a harvest moon. 

I really have to get out to the grocery store and get some things. We are out of fruit, veggies, eggs. Things like that. I think I am going to go to Crest where they have great produce, and get what we need right now. that will be better on my poor knee. Monday, I go to the doc for a check up, and I will tell her about it then. Yesterday, I got in the quilting room for a bit, and made two ME fall leaf coasters. I need to flip them still, then I will get a pic. I should share some pics of our vacation here, too.

Good morning, it is a beautiful start to the day here today after the deluge of rain that we had yesterday morning. Cool and crisp today. Not suppose to get out of the 60's today.

Welcome back Froggie. Sounds like you had a wonderful time on your vacation. Now you need a vacation from your vacation.

I have a little work to do this morning. Then I need to figure out what I'm going to take with me to work on tomorrow for sit and sew. I need to pack my lunch also for tomorrow. I'm thinking I will make a soup today that I can just heat up tomorrow. We will have access to a small kitchen that I think has a microwave to heat the soup up in. 

That's a lot of pills for Sophie. I use the pill pockets for Helga's pills. I use half of a pill pocket in the morning and the other half at night. 

Sounds like a good day out Thel. Did you take Buzz with you?

Well, I need to get ready for work.

Have a great day...

I sleep with pajamas, can't get comfy in a nightgown.  My legs need to be covered or they stick together.  Crazy me. 

Happy Anniversary !!   Kathleen and Kim.  You both celebrating.  That's wonderful!  

I hope you get those downloads to work Barbara.  Once you get the hang of it you'll be flying along.   

You were married before you were born Rita.  That's funny....talk about soul mates.    Nice to see you stop in and catch up.  

Bowling sounds like it was good Kim.  Your Halloween quilt parts sound great.  

Wow Sophie!!!  9 pills a day.  I hope she does well with them.    Oh how awesome,  choir practice and bells.  I wish I could hear those bells!    What a pain on those downloads.  Too bad you didn't get a set of DVD's.  That sure would make it easier for you. 

Welcome back Froggie.  I bet your body really needed that rest.  Being on vacation takes up a lot of energy.    I wanna see that jewelry!  

I like thumb drives,  they're a good price and can hold a real lot for you.  Probably a lot easier than DVD's .  

I need to get back to the Primrose quilts.  I've got lots of supplies at the ready, so hopefully tomorrow I'll get rolling!  Right now I've got laundry going,  did some kitchen cleaning (more to go) and need to give Penny a medicated bath.  Thankfully she loves her baths.  She's got some skin irritations going on that I'd like to resolve for her.  

Well time to get busy again! 

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury on Friday

Cute idea, Thel. It's nice that the staff joins in too. They must just love when you arrive. It probably makes their job a bit easier for the time you are there.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO on Friday

Finally got to sit and catch up.  I was exhausted after serving at the clothing ministry yesterday for the afternoon.   Buzz and I really enjoyed visiting at the NH today.  I had 'shopped' at the warehouse yesterday and got a bunch of crazy plastic glasses.  

We decided to wear them and make today full of crazy fun!  Most of the residents played along and wore their crazy glasses, choosing from red/pink/blue or green.  Even some  of the staff played along! 

Comment by Barbara S/IL on Thursday

Kathleen, I need to be able to play a DVD on a TV. The thumb drive might work if the TV at the church would accept it.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury on Thursday

Barbara, maybe your techy person will suggest using a thumb drive for your downloads. Depending on the size you buy, they hold a lot. After you load them and plug them back in to the USB port, they open up like any other drive on your computer.
