SO-LONG SEPTEMBER AND SUPBERB SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

Good Sunday evening everyone.  Today is the last day of September and it has been a cloudy and cool day.  It started raining late this afternoon.  They are saying the high tomorrow will only be in the 50's with a North Wind of 15-20mph and more rain.  I say just bring it.  I'm so ready for it.  So, until next year, so long September.

Well, yesterday was my Dad's 83rd Birthday.  We all went down there and ate lunch with him and Momma around 12:30p.m. He was wanting some grilled hamburgers because he said it had been a while since he had had some, so he grilled some burgers, hot dogs, and even cooked some french fries on his grill.  My Mom had fixed a Tenderloin in the oven and had a Bean Salad and other fixing to go along with the meal.  It was good.  I didn't eat any of the Pork Tenderloin as I'm not too crazy about it.  But hubby said it was good.  He had a Coconut Cake as a Birthday Cake.  We had a wonderful afternoon and enjoyed sitting around visiting and looking at old pictures and just talking.  I'm going to try and post a few pictures on here. 
THIS IS MY MOMMA AND  DADDY BEFORE WE LIT THE CANDLES ON HIS CAKE.

After we got home from their house, me and hubby layed down and took a nap and we both didn't wake up until around 7:00p.m.  LOL.  I guess after getting our bellies full, we needed a good nap.  At that time, it was Supper time, so we went up here to the local Mexican Restaurant, La Cascada, and ate Supper.    By this time, we are completely stuffed.  We came home and hubby fixed a pot of Coffee and we both drank some Coffee.  We went to bed around 10:00p.m, but since we had had that nap earlier, we had trouble going to sleep.  I finally dozed off around 2:00a.m. and woke up about 7:15a.m. this morning.  I got up and started a pot of Coffee and took me a shower.  Hubby wasn't feeling too well, so him and the girls stayed here and I went to Church.  Heard a wonderful message.  When I got home from Church, the girls were gone to my Sister's to eat with her, so hubby was still in bed.  I decided to lay down, but once again, I never could go to sleep.  I finally got back up and started another pot of Coffee.  I should have started a load of laundry and washed some dishes at this point, but I just wasn't in the mood.  I ended up going back to Church tonight at 5:00p.m. and heard another wonderful message.  After Church was over with, one of the ladies said let's load up in the Church Bus and go to Jonesboro to eat.  So, lo and behold, there was only 9 of us at Church tonight.  We loaded up and went and ate at Ryan's in Joneboro.  It was so nice to be around fellow Church member and enjoy the fellowship with them.  Even tho I am not a member of that Church yet, they have made me feel like a part of them and like I belong.  I love that in a Church. 

When I got home from eating, the girls had already taken their showers, which I had sent them a text, telling them to, I started a load of laundry and washed up the dirty dishes.  I just put the clothes in the dryer and am waiting on them to get done so they can be folded up. 

This coming week is going to be another busy week for me and the girls.  Tuesday night is the Maroon and Gray Game and of course, Wednesday night is Church night and then Thursday is what they call the "MISS MESS PAGEANT"(that is where the Boys Basketball Teams dress up like girls in pageant dresses and are judged).  They do charge admission and the money helps out one of the clubs there at School.  I have 2 Nephews that will be in it this year.  I've never been to one, but the girls have and everyone says it is hillarious.  I'm looking forward to going this time.  If I don't forget, I will take my camera and take some pictures.  Friday night the girls are going to spend the night with my Parents.  On Saturday is my hometown of Lepanto's Annual Terrapin Derby Celebration.  My Dad is the Grand Marshall of the Parade this year and both of the girls and Mom will be riding in the Parade with him.  I will be taking my camera to that and take pictures.  It all ends later that night with a Street Dance and my hubby's Cousin's Band will be playing at the Street Dance this year.  So, I will try to check in when I can and maybe make a post once this week, but just remember, it's a busy week around here. 

Take care everyone and may GOD Bless you and yours.

XOXOXOXO

It sounds as if you had a lovely weekend Karen. It also sounds like your upcoming week is going to be extremely busy.

Now photos of the boys wearing fancy dress would be something to see. Hope you remember your camera!

God Bless.

Oh my....I'm so sorry to be so lax in leaving a comment for you Karen. I've read all the comments that you have left for me at my blog, and just now I'm finding time to take a break from the busy-ness of our days this past week. We had plumbing problems [outdoor water line] and groceries, and cats, and laundry and computer viruses that jammed the computer all to heck....well, you know. There isn't enough time sometimes. I'm late, I know...but next time you see your parents, tell them a belated happy birthday to your father, and congrats to the both of them for a long, wonderful marriage of nearly 53 years!!!

Don't forget to rest some between all your activities and girls and coffee making!!!

Have a great week. It's Monday, and I know by the looks of things around here, it's gonna be another one of those weeks that I won't be online much.....again.

Hello dear Karen:-)

No, I haven't dropped off the side of the earth, just been busy! lol Today I had some errands to run in the morning but nothing planned in the afternoon so a perfect time to do some visiting:-)

Happy Birthday to your dad!! Sounds like it was a fun day for him and no doubt he felt very blessed having his family around to help him celebrate. Both your parents are looking wonderful:-)

I'm glad you were able to go out for supper with fellow Church members. Do you plan on becoming a member of that church?

Hard to believe we're in October now, the days and months are going by so fast. Yes, I do have a b'day coming up on Oct. 13th...just wish I wasn't getting older! lol

The weather has been gorgeous with above normal temperatures this week so I've been enjoying spending time outdoors. The trees are at their peak in colour, so beautiful!!

It certainly does sound like you have a busy week ahead of you but it all sounds like a lot of fun:-) How I would love to see the Boys Basketball teams dress up as girls! LOL

Love you my friend. xoxo

It's me again!!! Since today is Halloween, I'm sharing this little poem with everyone...

Here's a little poem I'm sharing with everyone today...

This is Halloween

Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gate posts,
Giving stare for stare.

Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirring round of fate-cakes,
With a solemn spoon.

Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
Up and down the streets.

Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter--
This is Halloween!

Happy Halloween, dear Karen, make sure you come by my blog today for my Halloween Bash and see what costume I dressed you up in! hehe xoxo

God Bless.
