What a difference 24 hours can make...yesterday, cold, rainy and windy---today, beautiful sunshine and blue skies! The wind is blowing and it's just an awesome fall day.
Yesterday after I posted I came down with a horrible headache...nothing got done. I took a 2 hour nap and felt rotten the rest of the afternoon/evening. Today is so much better.
I've already accomplished cleaning 2 floors with only the upper level left. Ron is working on his school work and music lessons this morning. He has his on-line writing class at noon and then we will tackle algebra and geometry classes.
Dinner tonight: mini-meatloaves, baked potatoes, green beans, mac n cheese and salad. Yum and perfect for a cool fall evening.
Off to tackle the last floor and get dressed. Have a lovely day!
PS...Taliyah made Nana a beautiful drawing yesterday and I wanted to share it with you.
It's amazing how quickly a week can pass when you're doing something totally different.
Today is our last day of break. We will finish it off with a photo shoot for Christmas cards and Ron's 11th grade pictures.
Then a final dinner out and a reboot of schooling until Nov. 11th when we will go to Arlington National Cemetry for the service at the tomb. Then, onto Thanksgiving when we hope to travel out of state for a 4 day mini-vacation to New York City.
Well..that's the high-lights of this week. Hope your new week will be off to a great start!
I'm adding pictures the kids took at Cox's Farm on Friday evening...they were cute.
This week has consisted of--going to bed late, sleeping in, movies, shopping eating out. And just let me say...I've so enjoyed it.
Wednesday the guys and I went lunch at Red Robin and then off to see Equalizer....
It was really well done and I wished we had some people like that to deal with the punks in the world. Quiet and efficient.
I also shopped for the grand-babies at Potatomic Mills---love all the kids shops there.
Thursday the Chief and I got up and hit Costco to restock our home, waited on a repairman who calls 5 minutes before his time is up and will be coming on Monday. We then headed back to the theatre to see Gone Girl
I had read the book, but jeepers creepers..the movie definitely did it justice. She was definitely one scary person!
Then onto Mike's American Grill for the best food in Springfield. There crab cakes and steak are to die for.
Today--we are getting caught up on some house work, laundry and then tomorrow off to DC for the day. There's so much to see and do.
This evening the kids are going to Cox Farm to do the fall festivities. Chief and I will happily hangout at home.
We will call it a night early so we can keep up with Sophia tomorrow.
