A Saturday morn. Love it. Sipping my coffee and eating the best brownie bites I have ever tasted. From a local bakery. It is very foggy and cold and so even this morning I have my Halloween lights on, and the place looks festive. I was bemoaning the fact that I will miss all my little pumpkin lights, so right before bed, I got on the puter and ordered some lovely Thanksgiving lights for my front window. Leaves, corn, pumpkins and tiny orange lights. Sounds good! It will address my little light obsession.
I love little off beat surprises. Since my hubby retired, my life has been full of them and I smile and laugh at each and every one. The latest? This gent from one of my favorite Pixar movies. Made from a bowling bowl and airbrushed by my talented Hubby. I don't think he will be just for Halloween. I think he is a permanent addition to my living room. :)
I love how life can change at any moment and a person can go from sadness and concern to immense relief and joy. My oldest girl has been battling some issues with her new company, and at one point things looked a bit bleak. Hubby and I stepped in and offered help, but things turned around and I think she is going to be okay. We are so proud of her and she works hard. She just has to deal with some difficult people sometimes (don't we all) and that can make life messy. We just have to have a little faith. :)
Presents for my girls for Halloween, all wrapped up and looking lovely!
I am loving a happy hubby. My guy is one very talented man. He carves, he welds, he creates and also does all my chores now that he is home all the time. Incredible! But one of the main things he loves to do, is make cars. About 5 years ago he made a Shelby Cobra and it is beautiful. He has been helping his friend on a car of his but he was yearning to do another car, all his own. Well, he found one and last week the big truck arrived and delivered his new project. Some kind of coupe (you can tell I know next to little about cars....lol) and he is over the moon! This will keep him busy for the next year or so. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
I loved having all four of us about for Hubby's birthday. So much fun to sit around and chat, and give our guy well deserved presents and love.
Though my bushes do not love it, I love having deer visit my yard. Wow, so beautiful and I could watch them all day long.
Well, what I am not loving is my lack of will power. I knew at the store when I was buying Halloween candy that I should not buy any bags with Tootsie Rolls in them. I am so in love with them and am not allowed to eat them. See, my teeth look pretty good, but truth is, most of them are crowns. And when you have crowns, you do not eat Tootsie Rolls. But guess who ate Tootsie Rolls? Yep, and guess what, I loosened a crown. So I will have to see if it will resolve itself or go and visit my dentist (I swear I am putting his 4 kids thru college). Lesson learned? Probably not....lol But at least for this year, yes! Off I go, time to start chores before the football game. Happy Halloween! Always, Kit
