I took a walk early this morning...fog was settled in our little valley. It is back in the 80s this week but that is ok, cold weather will be here soon enough. 80 is not a bad temp when the humidity is low like it is now.
My phone needed charging and my charger is broken! It was a good thing I found out before I went to the school to get the kiddos...I charged it in the car but the number one item on my to do list is to take care of that today! What do we do without all our technology? We are so reliant on it.
We are going to Chatsworth this weekend to start plans for our site work for the cabin. I have to pinch myself as it just does not seem real. I am sure when the bills roll in reality will raise its ugly head! My GBH friends were laughing at me over the weekend because I was buying things for the cabin. They reminded me that it is not even built yet but hey...when it is done, I am going to be ready. I purchased a set of Longaberger blue and white pottery dinnerware from my sister in law and I also found some cute dish towels. One says Cabin Sweet Cabin and the other says, The Mountains are Calling and I must Go.
I made a trip to The Cross Stitch Peddler yesterday and again I am reminded how fortunate we are here in Decatur to have such a quality shop. My sister needed some supplies and I did too. I have almost finished my Winter sampler and I have another project lined up. It is for the cabin...surprised?
One of my friends posted pictures from the beach on Facebook yesterday. While they were sunbathing, they noticed several guys out in the ocean holding up something. It was a whale that had gotten in a tidal pool and was stuck. According to the paper this morning, it is a small species of whale that resembles a dolphin. The guys held the whale until the marine life people arrived to rescue it. Sadly, it had to be euthanized as it could not survive. The story and pictures reminded me that there are still a lot of nice people around these days. We seldom hear about them!
Speaking of the beach, my daughter, Amelia, was married on Monday and they are honeymooning in the Bahamas. Since it was not the first marriage for either of them they decided to have a quiet ceremony at a local lawyer's office and focused on the honeymoon. Marvin and I hope they have a long and happy marriage.
Todays newspaper was printed on pink paper in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Decatur Daily does this each year but I am always startled when I see it in the driveway. I think something is wrong with my eyes! God Bless all the Ladies who are struggling with this awful disease. Many of you have read Kara Tippett's blog, Mundane Faithfulness. Kara died on March 22nd this year after a fierce battle with breast cancer. On Oct 1st, her final words to us are shared in the book, Just Show Up. It was written with her friend, Jill Buteyn and I must say it is one of the BEST books I have ever read about how to help a friend who is suffering. I am about half way through the book and most of the pages are marked with my yellow highlighter. I encourage you to order it from Amazon. I will do a book review on it when I am finished reading Just Show Up.
And to leave you on a light hearted note...my grands are all excited about Halloween. They have their costumes chosen....Kendall will be Mal from the Disney movie, Descendants, Landon will be Sonic the Hedgehog, Margaret will be a Cow Girl, Elliott will be Tigger and the jury is still out on Baylor and Audrey's costumes. Speaking of that sweet Audrey...Nana will get to see her on Saturday. Charles and Nancy are coming up to my mother's house to visit while we are in town. I will have to fight Grandma Margie for some sugar from that sweet babydoll.
Hope you all have a beautiful day....
