I sure do hope your enjoying your favorite cup of brew, while visiting your blogging kindreds.
I'm savoring a fresh, hot cup of Folgers with a sprinkle of cinnamon... it's sooo good & certainly gives a warm, cozy feeling while listening to the raindrops as you're typing....
Did you all have a splendid weekend?
Our weekend was better then we could have asked for ...
our home is no longer a quiet place since our daughter and Grandchildren moved in.. Not at all.. We have Tons of laughter, tears, and the day to day chaos that comes from scurrying about with chores and you know, that everyday stuff we do in our homes.
Though, Alan and I had been empty nester's long enough to get used to a quiet routine and home life... the children under foot, the echos of family chitter-chattering, and sometimes pure chaos that will make your eyes roll into the back of your head..
I wouldn't change for anything in the world.
Sunday morning we decided to mark a couple of things off our "Bucket List".
I packed us up a nice Picnic consisting of fried chicken, baked beans, salad in a jar, 7 UP biscuits and some yep, you guessed it, Pumpkin chocolate chip pecan cookies! Recipe's here
We loaded the the Fam and our kindred friend and her daughter into the trusty Durango ,off to the hills we went.
The day was pleasantly cool... There was cloud cover for the better part of the day, casting off a smoky blue/ gray sky around us. As we walked deeper into the woods the yellows , browns and fading pale green leaves against the dark wood and blue gray sky, set the stage for a most mystical and magical nature walk... I expected to see a glimpse of a woodland fairy.
The autumn picnic and nature walk was magical!
A great way to get rejuvenated and be ready to say....
Hello to Monday!
Wishing you all a great day :)
