Not changing the clocks until this morning worked!
We got to church practically on time!
I was taking a pic of everyone when a sweet lady asked me if I wanted to be in it, too!!
We love our church, our pastor, our staff. I have loved going to church for as long as I can remember.
There is a sacredness about Sunday. I feel it even on the Sundays I can't go.
We were all walking down the hall to the front of the church to leave when Kailey wanted her 'GAND Dad' to carry her! Look how long and gangly she's become!
Can you see Louis Dean is reaching down for someone?
Logan wanted to be carried!
Hold on, Granddad!!! I think you're leaning!!
Ah, all is right in their world now!
We lingered long on the walk to the parking lot letting the kids play in the big meadow beside the church for a few minutes while we adults made plans for the week and caught up with each other.
It's been wonderful to be members together at the same church.
We didn't go out to eat since the Cowboys were playing at noon. We DID stop at Little Caesars on the way home for Wings - one order of each! They had four! Also I asked for bread sticks and when we opened them as we were driving, he discovered he had ordered some kind of bread pizza. No problem! It was good. Home for some FOOTBALL!!!
We are pretty excited about our new rookie quarterback!!
I took my happiness and went off to the grocery store and Lowes.
I am so late in replacing the mums and marigolds that died in the fall heat and lack of water.
I bought a basket full of reduced for quick sale plants - six of which are good heat and drought resistant - and I will get them all in the ground tomorrow. Pansies also made it into the cart. Just a few.
The messy stage of fall has arrived with pecans and their husks littering the decks and crunching under the tires along the curb. They mess up the sidewalks, too, but the pecans are worth the clean up! Not that we have done any of that lately! The ponds are relatively clean and running. I dip the leaf strainer and lift out the soggy ones every few days. It rained today. Not hard and and long but off and on. That's my favorite way for it to do. As I write it is 68 degrees in the house and that's with the French doors open. I'm loving it!!!
Amber said she is already packing her pumpkins and fall stuff up. I am never quite ready to pack mine away although I did load up two tubs of Halloween stuff and got that much down.
I am still waiting for the fireplace weather......but it may be Christmas!
We just take what we can get.
I stopped at the grocery store and bought more than I meant to. I always do.
Trystan asked me if I had Dilly Bits today. I don't but I assured her that we could make some tomorrow. Then I had to run out to two different stores to get the ingredients!
The kids have also been asking to paint so I have that already out and ready to go.
Mondays are Quad Days and we are enjoying every single one of them!
This will be our last year before they are in school every day.
My, how time flies!!
I have a big yellow legal pad of paper and am writing down each name as you comment for the Santa Giveaway. I am including comments made on Facebook when I link my blog there as well for those who aren't able to comment on the blog itself.
I am assuming everyone wants to be in the giveaway. I guess if someone wins that doesn't want the painting, I can just draw another name. Or Louis Dean will. I am writing the names down and cutting the paper in strips. He will be in charge of pulling one out.
That's been our Sunday!
LD has been boiling eggs and chopping ham and vegetables for a Sunday Salad Supper.
We paused TV so we can zip through the commercials and watch Madame Secretary while we eat.
I have spoiled Louis Dean in allowing us to eat in front of the TV.
No worries! Tomorrow we will have the quads for two meals. Lunch will be in the den and dinner in the dining room where it's all dressed up. They will love it!
Blessings for a GOOD week!!!
