Fall Sunset

It's been a beautiful fall day, ending with a beautiful fall sunset.

Not sure about the brain drain, but I have it tonight.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams

Best Day

" Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year."

Jordan's mom, Samantha and I had a long heart to heart this week.  We are both in the same place in the same area of our lives and struggling with similar issues.  I think we both realized that even with the age difference we have more in common than just being related. 

She has at least a short term solution/answer for her issue, I am still trying to figure mine out.
There is no doubt we will both do what we need to do.

There is a warm front coming up from the Gulf tonight and a cold front coming from the northwest.
Things could get interesting around here tomorrow.  Hopefully no severe storms just lots of rain.

Mondays come so fast.  I hope for all of us, tomorrow is a Monday of kindness and great joy.

The transformation continued today.  I cleaned out my closets.  Rick dusted window blinds.
The house feels bigger.  He also got the screen porch  ready to move all our potted plants to this week.  It just feels good to get some things accomplished.

Tomorrow we rest.
Enjoy your Sunday, may it bring peace to you and yours.

Fall Bits and Pieces

Last bit of fall decorating and house cleaning today.   It felt  good to stay home and get some things done.

Now, maybe tomorrow, clean the closets.

Sometimes just the simple cleaning of your space is an amazing transformation.

Jordan's mom sent over a photo of his report card tonight, all A's, straight 100 averages.
I mentioned we should celebrate, she said well he has already, he asked for pork chops and mashed potatoes for dinner.  What can I say, our family celebrates, mourns, loves , comforts and bonds with food.

Put us around a dinner table, we can love, solve world problems and laugh ourselves into tears.
Food is the tie that binds.  At least for our family.  No better way to celebrate than with a good meal.
Did I mention I came home from and made fish tacos?

I hope your Friday is a good one.  Be safe, be happy and be kind.

We do our best to eat seasonal foods.  In the fall and winter we eat lots of root vegetables, greens and soups and stews.  Today I made a giant pot of vegetable soup.  A little of this, a little of that, raiding the pantry, the fridge, the freezer.  Tossed together, magic happens and the flavors blend.  Thank goodness Rick doesn't mind leftovers.  We will be eating soup for a few days.

Spend some time with those you love tomorrow, laugh out loud and be kind.
