  • Don and I have started to enjoy "bun~less" hamburgers as we cut carbs.  Believe it or not under all those good things, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions and mushrooms is a sirloin burger patty.   Mayo, mustard and ketchup...of course but NO bun.

  • On my way to Target, I saw a group of teenagers by the High School holding up car wash signs.  They did a great job and it was a reminder of all the car washes we were involved with when our kids were in school.  I bought my little Nissan Sentra new in 2000.  She still runs so good, and with a new paint job, looks good too.

  • My dearest had lunch at MiMi's with a friend and brought me home a blueberry muffin.  What a thoughtful guy.

  • We buy half and half by the half gallon, and I pour it into a smaller container, and refill as needed.  When we were up North I was in a local market, and they had Organic Half and Half from a local farmer in a darling little glass bottle.  Now I have a really cute container for my half and half.

In Thy will, O Lord is my peace;
In Thy love is my rest.
In Thy service is my joy,
Thou art all my heart's desire.
Whom have I in heaven but Thee?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides Thee.
I love you.  Amen.

I trust you all will have a wonderful Sunday.


When we were in Oregon we visited the Farmers Market and I bought several jars of jam.  The lady who makes them is Jean, and her label is "Jean's Jam".  She had Apricot, Balsamic Strawberry and Blueberry.  If you buy three, she packages them in a cute little wooden tray and ties it with a cord.  I bought some for the friends we stayed with.

We visited a Thrift Store, and Jill found an Oreo Cookie Jar.  Isn't that the cutest.

While we were at Sue's she sent a bag of pomegranates with us to Jill's.  They always look so pretty in a bowl.

I spent the morning deep cleaning as dust seems to come visiting while you are on vacation.  Clean sheets on the bed, pilgrim sandwich for lunch, and now a trip to Target to find some sun glasses.  A good Saturday.

 We are missing Tristan...I guess you can call it "Tristan Withdrawal"

A boy and his toys.  He has a room full but his favorites are the ones that play music.  He already has moves.  HaHa

I love his little profile and his curls.  

Early in the mornings, Tristan enjoyed his time with Grandpa and Molly.

Being the Queen of Drizzle, I bought a Cinnamon Drizzle Candle from Kirkland Home.

Like Mother ~Like Daughter.  I had to laugh when Jill made banana bread and began to add drizzle.

Jill even drizzles her Oatmeal cookies.  There were so good!

I decided to put my White Pumpkin on the Balcony since I needed to add some Fall there.

It seems only right, that my little Witch should be among the spiders!! So I hung her on my Spider Plant.

I left "Freddie" alone in his bowl while we were gone.  I had added a 14 day Beta vacation feeder block.  It worked, as he was still in good shape when we got home.  

First dinner at home was Tilapia, Quinoa brown rice, green beans with sauteed onions and bacon.  I'm using my fall dishes I got at the Dollar Store last year.
