Good afternoon and come on in. We have some Door County Pumpkin Spice coffee and some apple cinnamon muffins if you'd like one. I love drinking coffee on a fall afternoon. Oh heck, I love drinking coffee any time. I am missing my Kona, decaf. Have got to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to get some. I look for it at Marshalls and Ross' and they haven't had any.I know you will laugh but I like drinking from my mustard or redware mugs in the fall. Isn't that just crazy?
Don't you just love this weather. My heart aches for the people in Colorado, but here in East Tn, it has been gorgeous. It rained Saturday and I think that was so Dodd and Michael would be forced to take a day of rest. They both work all the time. The leaves are beginning to turn. I am so happy when fall comes. There are a few trips in the forecast, but that is not why. I just love the weather. I love wiener roasts and have one to go to soon.(I love burnt marshmallows) I have to admit I had never set around a fire all day, well 2 days actually, until late last summer at DayBreak Place.
That is just one of the reasons I love fall. I love the mums, pumpkins and everything else that go with it. It is almost a time of peacefulness, sort of a prelude to Christmas.
I am trying to do better. Life has changed for me considerably. I have more time as I don't have(get to ) go to the nursing home. It was so hard and each time I went for 6&1/2 years, I wanted to throw up when I pulled in the driveway. Now I miss going. Dodd said he did too. I think it was hard because the husband and father we loved wasn't there, but only the shell of the man he was.We often said, he might not know who we are, but we know who he was. However, we could see and hug him. Now we can't. I have lots to do keep me busy, and have a lot of wonderful friends and with out my family,I would be lost. I am thankful for each and everyone of them. Just found out this week there is a trip to St. Louis in my future.lol Life is good and I just love fall. It puts me in the best mood and then there is Christmas. WOW!
I am so glad you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: I had my camera out and Dasko just sat down and looked at me! And waited. So I took his picture
