While I am getting myself into a routine, it just doesn’t seem to include much time online. And while limiting my time online has long been a goal, I didn’t intend for blogging time to be what was sacrificed.
It was a nice, quiet weekend at Chez Nana. I made progress on the Storm at Sea and on my hexagons. We watched the Cardinals pull off two unexpected wins over the Dodgers. And we had a birthday party for little T#4!
Speaking of T#4, today is her birthday … she turns 4! One of the benefits of watching the Ts while DD works the early morning shift is that I will get to be the first one to give her a happy birthday hug … the downside will be that it breaks my mama heart to think that DD’s mama heart will be hurting that she didn’t get to be the first one.
Fall has arrived here! The leaves on our new trees in the backyard have started to turn … the colors are gorgeous … we chose them especially for their fall color, and they’re not disappointing. And the weather has definitely become fall-like … although it’s bordering on becoming winter-like with lows in the lower 40’s and even upper 30’s in the forecast for the rest of the week. I’m going to fight turning on the furnace as long as I can … thank goodness for a gas fireplace that I can switch on in the mornings to take the chill off (although DH likes to point out that the cost of running that fireplace is about the same as just turning on the furnace ). And thank goodness for heated seats and a heated steering wheel on our new van!
It’s time for me to head to DD’s … but I’ll close with a picture taken 4 years ago.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
