If we were having coffee…we would be sitting in the kitchen cozy and warm watching the leaves dance past the window. We had a frost come through overnight here in South Jersey and it seems like my porch days for this year are numbered. Hubby put away the swing and the picnic table but he left me the adirondack chairs in case I wish to brave the elements. You don’t mind if we stay indoors for now do you? We may have a fire in the chiminea tonight and make some s’mores. You’re welcome to come back!
For now, let’s just enjoy our drinks indoors and we can share some treats that Mr D brought home from work yesterday. At the store they call them “oopsies”. Actually they are the apple cider donuts that don’t make the cut. They’re too small or misshapen and can’t be sold so they offer bags of them to the employees at the end of the day. Hey, anyone who hands me a bag of donuts is instantly my hero!! I have a slight addiction to baked goods. So help yourself to an “oopsie” and tell me about your week. I hope it was a good one.
If we were having coffee… I would tell you that my sister has enlisted me to help with her youngest grandson’s 1st birthday party. The first hurdle was to get her husband to agree to have the party at their house (he can be a bit of an old fart ☺️). The second hurdle will be reining my sister in. She tends to get really intense about this kind of stuff and is now in a full party planning frenzy! There is a large Pinterest board for the party and there is a theme. Speaking of which…what the heck is a Bubble Guppy? I’ve been out of the loop kid’s-tv-wise for quite a few years. I remember “Arthur” (you know, the aardvark), the “Rugrats” and “Sesame Street” but educational fish are new to me.
If we were having coffee… I would share that Friday was the last match of Miss Dee’s high school tennis career. It was a little emotional for her and the other senior girls and for the coach who is retiring. To be honest, I was a little emotional too! I just have to keep reminding myself that for each “last” that this year brings, there are lots of “firsts” right around the corner.
I’m so glad you stopped by to chat! I hope you have a relaxing Sunday. As for me, I plan on doing a little painting after I take care of some laundry and a chocolatey looking spot on the living room carpet that no one is owning up to! Then maybe take a walk with my honey and enjoy the crisp air.
Come by again next week so we can catch up!!
