My bloggy friend over at Running away? I'll help you pack! has a bunch of really cool books for giveaway. You should check them out.
My son and his girlfriend went to their very first homecoming dance Saturday night. They were so cute together and had a wonderful time. I'm so proud of them both. I will share pictures soon.
I'm having a hard time dealing with the fact that my friend Alice is moving away very soon. We are very close and do a lot together, anything from grocery shopping, having lunch, and just chillin with a soda talking about life. I'm really going to miss her when she moves!
We have already had a few nights of frost outside and I know it's just a matter of time before I wake up to it being white out there. I Love winter and snow, the only thing that I don't like about it is how slick the roads and hwy get. I just have to go slower and plan to take the extra time to get where I'm going.
I thought today was going to be a day of relaxing with my PJ's on all day but nope I have to do errands and shopping. I long for just one day of nothing to do.....LOL Maybe next week I can get a day like that.
Okay there you have it in a nutshell!
Have a Blessed week!

Next I have to go grocery shopping and pick my son up while I'm in town. Then come home put all the groceries away and make dinner. I think I might just fall into bed tonight almost asleep the minute my head hits the pillow.

I found this picture of me going through old photo's. I'm guessing by the date on the back I was 4 months old. All that was on the back was the year 1965. So since I was born in August of 65, I'm guessing it was late in that year this photo was taken. I know I'm dating myself....LOL

I have been working on my homework and still have a couple papers to write before class on Tuesday. Monday night my daughter will come over and we will do some work together. Since she will be here I will make dinner for all of us. She is very excited to have a Mommy home cooked meal. I think while she is here I will have hubby take a couple pictures of us for my Thursday Mom's in pictures post.
The leaves on the trees keep getting more fall colors in them, and it is just breath taking to drive along with all the colors. Our daylight is shrinking and we are down to 11 hours now. It keeps going down and the lowest point is a little over 5 hours. Unlike summer at the height of daylight it is just a little over 19 hours. I feel the air is different, and it won't be to much longer before we see our first snow.
My son(15) has a cute Lil girlfriend and she came over Friday night after school for dinner and movies. She is such a good girl, with great manners. I have met her parents and really like them, so I let him go to her house on Saturday. The 26th is Homecoming at school and they are going together. Waaaaa Not so sure this Mommy is ready for all this. Not that I haven't been through it 4 times before, I guess it's just the fact that he is my baby.
Okay enough blah blah blah!
Have a beautiful week!

While doing my homework this weekend my printer took a dive and I had to go buy a new one yesterday. I got the kind that does everything but dishes...LOL So now I have to dig out some old photo's and try the Flashback photo day, but for the life of me I can't remember which day people post those. Any help with that?
I still have homework to be done, but I might need to take a nappy before I get started. I stayed up to late last night watching part of the 5th season of House. Any one like that show? I find in quiet interesting and some humor in it.
Our days have been very seasonably nice for Alaska and I have been enjoying every minute of it. Only to wake this morning to rain, I guess it's better than snow for now.
I have been making some Christmas plans, exciting and a bit early I know but this might be a biggy and I really can't say just yet what they might be, but if I can pull this one off it will be exciting and a Christmas to remember not that every Christmas is special.
Hmmm I love all seasons and the food that goes along with them, I wonder what your favorite winter comfort food is? I will have to say mine is a good pot of homemade chili and cornbread.
Okay enough random now go check out that cool giveaway and have a Blessed week.

The cabbages were looking good and I managed to get one of these fine looking ones for homemade cabbage rolls. With one stipulation, I invite the grower over for dinner. Not problem, it will be a German dinner night Tuesday night my house.

This was just taken a few minutes ago. I needed a picture so I made my son come outside for a quick one and Rikki thought she needed to join in.
Let me tell you Jill is a great person to work with. She gave me ideas and step by step instructions on how she was going to make my blog look wonderful. She took her time but yet was fast at getting the job done if you know what I mean. Her communication was wonderful and her ideas are awesome.
So I have a Big THANK YOU to Jacki for having the giveaway and Jill for my new look!
So what do you all think?????????
