 October the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down
October is red
and golden and brown

  Good morning, and welcome to October!

Lou Ann, another lovely new thread ~ and beautiful presents, too! Thank you so much for both!!
I hope you  are having a wonderful weekend!


We're supposed to hit 86 again today.   It's October, for Pete's sake!   I want my FALL!

Yesterday I kept looking for a break in the traffic at the Garage Sale across the street, and there never was one.   Today, it's pretty quiet.   I would have thought today would be the busy day, but I guess everyone wanted to come out on the first day to get the best goodies, and I also guess that nobody works anymore.   

I know Garage Sales are wonderful for keeping on top of downsizing and also making a few bucks, but even in my misspent youth I didn't have the stamina to go to all the WORK of a Garage Sale.   I've helped a few friends with theirs, and that was enough for me!  I don't think I could possibly make enough money to make it worth it.   I'll just keep giving things to the Vets or ARC and hope I'm paid in good Karma.    It made me tired just looking across the street yesterday.  lol

We have been looking for a curio cabinet online.  We've found a couple of brands and I think we are going to go to a furniture store that is a dealership for both today and see about ordering one.   When we tried online through another company, they said delivery date would between November 1st and December 15th.  Good Grief!    I'd kinda like to narrow it down a bit more than that.  Ha.   We really do need two, but buying them sight unseen is nervous making.    Otherwise, not much planned for today.


I wish everyone an awesome day and a great October!

Well I am back from my weekend and my first reaction is that was the weekend from hell, but on closer inspection it was good and bad both.  The concert was wonderful!  Absolutely amazing!  The music was Tchaikovsky -- his symphony number six, the one where he deals with death but the music director and explained how it was thought of as all about death but he explained how it was about life in the first three movements.  It was amazing and although I am told it was a 45 minute piece it certainly did not seem long enough.  I wanted more!  It was just the best!  I was having trouble with my stomach and skipped dinner at the lovely restaurant before the symphony so I could manage to get through the symphony and hear it all.  That worked, and I thought I was better stomach wise, but after getting a nice breakfast before we left on Sunday I got sick halfway home.  Oh well.  Looking back on it, the concert was worth it.  Did I mention my dear son in law road home with us?  Zarah wanted to stay for a concert later in the day and he had to get home, so he was completely initiated in having a gimp for a mother in law.  He was a complete gentlemen.  The restroom where Dave and I spent half an hour cleaning me up had a picnic table and he just sat patiently and waited.

Hi Lou Ann!  I hope you are having or had a wonderful birthday weekend.  At both of the restaurants we were at my sister mentioned it was my birthday coming up but she never did buy me a meal.  Silly woman.  She did say happy birthday.  I hope your first a weekend went well!  What a beautiful opening page are created!  Thank you also for the lovely signature!

Hi Dorothy!  I agree with you that rummage sales are a lot of work to put together, but I used to love to go to them!  April still does and finds tremendous bargains.  I agree with you-it is October already so what is with the 90° temperature on my thermometer?  Sheesh.  Good luck with your search for the perfect curio cabinet.  I almost used your signature asking if your day could get any worse.  I can relate.

GOOD MORNING CUPPA GALS...

Yesterday I once again popped in and wanted to say hi...I had an extremely fantastic post all done up ready to save & send over and POOF...It disappeared OMG you know how I felt totally crushed and depressed...Today I am unable to do a long post because I must get ready to go to Ann's house...


I will do the best I can with the time allotted...

Dorothy...

As I remember from yesterday you have a most BEAUTIFUL picture of your house in your post...I absolutely loved it...Your 'PORTICO' which I love by the way is another
(from Italian) is a porch leading to the entrance of a building, or extended as a colonnade, with a roof structure over a walkway, supported by columns ...
Here is a sample of your 'PORTICO'



Here it is random size, & color stone bricks which is like your rocks of many colors...Who ever picked this style of PORTICO for you porch did a great job...The Portico is proportionately sized to your door...Notice the extra touch of 2 carriage lamps on the front??? They would be spectacular on your PORTICO as well...Put them up as Motion Detector's and they'll light up your AWESOME door and light people's way up to your door...This is what I mean by Art/Deco this is your PORTICO...

You can be very proud of your house Dorothy it is gorgeous...

Lou Ann...

I know you had a week-end trip I didn't even get to wish you well so I'm here asking you to tell us what went on who came and how it was...Oh by the way thank you for my new tag, as you'll notice I copied your border and used my new tag in my post...

annnieM...
I'm hoping that your doing okay I can't remember everything I wrote to you the other day & I unfortunately have no time to search back...I am hoping that the concerts went well and I hope to hear all about your trip to Wyoming what you saw along the way and how the concerts went...

Healing Hugs & Prayers Going Out To All In Need...





HUGS TO ONE AND ALL

 Good Morning All  

It's another bright sunshiney day in Colorful Colorado.   Wherez the Fall, Y'all??  

Lisa was here working while I sat on my ever expanding bee-hind and play on the PC, and Mike was checking online to help her find a new car.   She has her's temporarily repaired, but she REALLY needs a new one. 

Mike's new hobby seems to be getting on to the Loan Company site about four times a day to confirm that (and I quote) "This loan is paid in full."   LOL
   



annnieM,  I don't know whether to be happy for the wonderful concert, because it certainly sounded wonderful, or to be horrified that you got sick on the way home.   Definitely a mixed blessing, and definitely Bless Dave and your great new son-in-law.   

I'd be glad to share that signature with you ~ but I hope its never necessary again. 


Mary Ann ~ THERE you are!   I was beginning to worry.    I HATE that you lost your post, both for your frustration and because I always love your posts and I hate to miss it.

Phooey, your pictures didn't show up ~ but I do love the word Portico.   It fits perfectly!
Thanks so much for your nice words about our house.

Have a fun time at Ann's house.


Happy Birthday WEEK, Lou Ann.

Amanda Knox and her Italian boy friend just found not guilty and released from the Italian prison!

She was found guilty of lying to police and sentenced to three years, which she has already served, and fined 2000 Euros.

She's coming home!

Good morning.

Oh my goodness!  I'm going to have to check and see what they are doing in the new house next door ~ such noise!   I saw a cement mixer go by.  Maybe they are pouring the driveway.  I don't remember it being that loud when they poured the basement.  

We're back in the 80s today, but its supposed to drop to cooler temps and maybe rain for the rest of the week.   We really have had lovely weather, and I'm enjoying life in my "tree house" after all those years of keeping the drapes drawn so our backyard neighbors and we wouldn't be looking into each other's houses.

 




Hey, the rest of you.  
Come out.  Come out wherever you are.

. Hello everyone!

Hi Mary Ann!  What an adorable boo tag!!  I hate that you lost your post again!  Glad you keep trying.  I am doing OK now after the trip from hell.  I guess it could have been worse.  The concert was excellent!  I hope you have a wonderful stay at Ann's house and lots of fun with the puppies.

Hi Dorothy!  How nice that Mike is trying to Lisa find a new car.  I can imagine how joyful it is for Mike to look and confirm that your loan is paid in full.  I would behave in the same manner.  Not that it will ever happen for me, but if it did.  As for the trip, all I can say is it could have been worse.  Definitely bless Dave and Jeff, real good.  It is also good to know how much you can survive!  I saw that this Amanda Knox was found not guilty of murder & let go.  I did not pay attention as the story unfolded.  Did you think her not guilty?  It seems you are glad she's coming home.  How horrible that would be to be locked up for years in a foreign prison, and not guilty of any crime.  Poor kid.

Hi Lou Ann!  How did your weekend go?  I hope you had a wonderful time!

Not much happening here today and that's just fine with me.  This is going to be a busy work week as it is the last week in a project and I cannot imagine we will have time to think about my birthday, let alone celebrate it.  We shall see.  Wishing you all a terrific Tuesday!

Hello ladies

My weekend was a mix of extreme sadness,

endless laughter and a fair amount of pain.

It started out bad.  Friday my darling Rissa

miscarried.  But she and Matt opted to come

up North anyway.  Rissa said what good is it

to sit around and cry.  She goes back in today

for more blood tests.   Once the bloodwork

shows her as no longer pregnant, then they

have to wait 3 full cycles then they can try 

again.  It was hard for them to have to tell

us all that they were no longer pregnant. It

was good that they had not announced it to

the world yet.  The drive up (2 1/2 hrs) was

 uneventful . We ate subway along the way.

 My back and bottom were

hurting when we got there.  Kirstie and Nick 

were already there.  They had gone up in the 

morning.  We learned that Kirstie has a tumor

on her pituitary but they are pretty sure it is

benign.  Please keep her in your prayers.  I 

think we arrived around 8pm.  Then Gary and

 Steve arrived about 10:30 and Rissa and Matt

 about 11:00pm.  Reid and Tricia decided not

to come.  I was very disappointed.  So we had

Me, Nan, Louann, Bruce, Steve, Gary, Matt,

 Nerissa, Nick, Kirstie and Hailey & Cooper. 

(the dogs)  We all missed our darling Ginger

 who passed on this past summer.  One bathroom

is really not the best situation for 10 people.

  But we always make it work.  At midnight

Rissa's phone went off telling her is was my

birthday.  So singing occurred, lol.  I think we

 were up till nearly 2am. I had a horrible night 

with little to no sleep.  I finally had switched to

 one of the smaller recliners that have been

 added and was just going to go to sleep when

 Nan got up.  It was 6am.  There was no sleeping

after that.  She does not know how to be quiet.

Everyone drags out eventually.  By the time we

  ate breakfast and all got dressed it was late

 morning before we were on our way.  We 

decided to go to Rib Mountain State Park, near

Wausau.  The leaves were changing and all was

 beautiful, including the weather.  I did not

get many pics as I just never got much of an

 opportunity and the sun was so bright that 

I could not even see the pic in my led screen.

So was few shots I got are not great.  Some I

just trashed.  I have one that is just sky, lol.

I completely missed the people.  Here are a

 couple pics from on the mountain.  They are

 the only ones I got.  And I was always just a bit

late for the shot I wanted, lol.

This is the view from an outlook platform.  The pic does not do it

justice.  I wish I could have seen in my view screen .


Matt and Rissa

Rissa and Matt



Nan


Kirstie and Nick


Bruce and Louann


Steve, Nick and Kirstie at the top of the Observation Tower at the

top of Rib Mountain.

The sky where I missed getting the peeps on the tower, lol.

Rib Mountain has skiing and they had one of the sets of

ski lifts running and you could ride down the mountain and

 back up and view the whole area and the beauty of the fall

 foliage on the mountain.  It was a great day for it, but some of'

us, me for one, were just a little too chicken to go for it.  I have

definitely developed a fear of heights that I did not have when I

 was younger, lol.  After we left the mountain we went to a

 Mexican restaurant for late lunch...2pm. lol.  I decided to try

 something completely new and I loved it.  It was called Tropical

 Puerco.  It was pork with a pineapple salsa over it.   Sauteed  

  vegetables and rice.  It was all terrific.  The veggies were

 zucchini, carrots, green beans and more and I do not know

 what they were cooked in but they were the best vegetables I have

 ever had.  Plus I had a Raspberry Margarita on the house for my

birthday :)  Then they came out in the end and put a sombrero

 on me, sang happy birthday and gave me a piece of laleche

cake for my birthday.  It was very good and huge, so I sent it

 around for all to try.  After we ate we drove around a bit but  

 decided to go back to the cottage and relax as we wanted to go 

 to a Chinese Thai restaurant for supper and it was in Steven's

 Point and on the opposite direction from the cottage.  We did

 stop at the cheese factory and I got some cheese curds and a

 chunk of aged brick to take home.  Once we

 got home and relaxed and some took a walk.  Guys were

 watching football and baseball, lol.  Anyway, it got to be 7pm

 and no one felt like going all the way to Steven's Point for

 supper.  So we ordered pizza from a place down the rode near the

 campgrounds.  We picked them up and brought them home and

 then we had my cake for dessert.  This year it was a bought cake.

  It was from VanderWalles which is a local confectionery back

 home.  The cake was a Confetti Angel Food.  I did enjoy it but I 

really missed having my traditional Carrot Cake.  Then we

 played te dictionary game until it was time for Saturday Night

 Live. only to find it would not come in for some reason.  We were

 all disappointed in that.  Though I have not laughter so hard or

 so long as I have this weekend.  Nick, Matt and Steve are just

 naturally funny and they were at their best.  I slept in one of the

  smaller recliners and slept great.  From now on I will choose

 one of them as mine for the weekend.  Somewhere around noon

 we headed out to Steven's Point to go to the Chinese Thai

 restaurant for a late lunch, only to find it closed :(  But a few

 doors down we found a restaurant called the Wooden Chair and

decided to try it.  The inside was sort of rustic and the tables and

 chairs were all wooden and mismatched.  All sorts of chairs in

 different colors and woods and some with paint pealing.  I loved

 it.  It was so quaint.  They served breakfast and sandwiches.  I

 had the Rocker...which was turkey, avocado paste, red onions

 and sprouts on homemade breads.  Also had a cup of clam

 chowder.  It was all very good.  Took half the sandwich home

 and had it as a late supper in Fond du Lac.  Gary and Steve took

 off for home from there and we went back to the cottage to pack

 up and then clean up the place.  I was quite uncomfortable on

 the ride home.  It was just too much uprightness for me.  My

 joints got all stiff and hurt, my back hurt and my bottom hurt.

I had a wonderful time but just cannot decide if it is worth all

 the pain.  But I am glad I went.  And once again I never had to

 pay for a meal.   Got home around 7pm.  Around 9 mu sister

 called and Jordan was going to have emergency surgery.  He

 had been having horrible stomach pain for a few days.  They first

 went to ER on Thurs I think and the doctor said it was

 constipation and gave him some meds Then she had him to the

 ER again Sat and I think were told the same thing.  They did

 tell them to try enemas.  Then again Sun night.  The doctor

 them said he is not constipated he showed nothing there in the

 xray but there was calcification around the appendix so they

 had to do surgery and remove his appendix.  Though when they

 got in he decided that was not the problem but removed it

 anyway.   My sister said it was something about something

 hitting or touching the colon.  He came home yesterday

 afternoon but still has a lot of pain.  

So that was my weekend.  Quite eventful.  Sunday night I

went to bed about 2 am, got up about 8am went to the bathroom

and decided I was still tired.  Went back to sleep and did not

 wake up until 1 pm.  I have never slept that much in my life.  

I think my body was just exhausted.  So here I am.

Hugs,

Hi everyone!

Hi Lou Ann!  So sorry to hear your dialing Rissa miscarried.  I think that her attitude is wonderful and I'm so glad that she and Matt showed up.  I hope that they have wonderful luck next time.  My sister IN law miscarried her first and then had two healthy pregnancies.  Scary news about Kirstie's tumor.  So glad that it's most likely benign.  A question for you.  Is Nan a widow?  Loved your pictures, even the one of the sky.  Beautiful!  Happy to hear that you found a recliner you can sleep and just wish you had more time.  Funny that rock outcropping has a posted name of "Queen Chair".  I have an armed chair that we have always called the queen's chair.  The food you had sounded wonderful!  I am so glad you have such wonderful friends!  You deserve them!  I absolutely love the idea of the Wooden Chair restaurant and the rustic way it was done.  I absolutely love quaint!  Scary about Jordan having emergency surgery.  I hope that he is fixed.  Rest up!  Sounds like you had a whirlwind weekend!

My mother called and wanted to know if they could bring dinner out on my birthday.  I hear my daughter is making a cake.  57 isn't really a big deal but I guess we're having a party.  Works for me.  I like cake!  LOL.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday!

Hi Guys!
OMG, I pharted around all morning and now we have to leave for Mike's appointment with his Neurologist in about 15 mintues.    I'll just touch base and then come back later ~ or more likely tomorrow.

It's only going to be 78 here today, but they are talking about snow in the mountains!  We're supposed to get rain and a cool-off for the rest of the week, and unfortunately a lot of wind.

The noise yesterday must have been scraping the driveway next door because they are pouring it today.  They keep coming over to measure our driveway's "level-ness".  I should suggest they don't.   Ours slopes from the garage to the street which is fairly normal, but it also slopes right to left, which is Not!
This, by the way, is very noisy too!



Hi AnnieM.   I'm so sorry you got sick!  What an awful thing to happen anytime, but especially when you are away from home.   I'm glad the concert was lovely at least!
I can't identify Tchaikovsky's 6th from any other ~ until I hear it ~ but I do love the Russian Composers. 

Happy Birthday!  
I know it's tomorrow, but I assume you will start today to get a jump on your Week!

Lou Ann, I have so much to say about your post, but I've run out of time to say it!    I'll be back, but I'd best stop before Mike is ready and standing in the hall tapping his foot.

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Hello Ladies

Hi annnieM, I am hoping that you have a terrific 
birthday celebration...many of them, lol.  I am
blessed in my friendships.  My real life friends
and the friends I have here.  You all are often more
real than my "real life".  I talk to you more often
and I tell you more.  it is hard to talk with my
friends as my mom hear's everything that I say.
Not always good so I keep my mouth shut :)
My friend Nan is not a widow.  She is like me 
and has never been married.  I met her in 1975
when I started working and we became instant 
friends.  I introduced her to my group of friends
and she just became a part of it.  She opened
my eyes to a whole different world.  She is 7
years older than I am and from California.  A child
of the 60's in CA.  Imagine all she has done.  I
was just fascinated by her, lol.  She has changed
a lot over the years, well, we all have.  I just
turned 55 so she is 62.  We really had a great
time up north.  Everyone was in rare form. lol.
Dorothy, I just hate listening to construction all
the time.  But I suppose that is the price you pay
for living in a new development.  At least it is
quiet on weekends.  I hope there was only good
news at Mike's MD appt. and that your went out
for a reward luncheon. :D
Tomorrow is my INR recheck.  I am taking mom to
Gilles Drive In for lunch.  We have not been this
year.  They have the best custard.  Mom needs a 
turtle sundae and I need a raspberry soda...or a
chocolate and vanilla swirl cone...not sure which 
I want, lol.  Do I dare do both?
Hugs,

 Well here it is my birthday and what I am learning is that I do a better job of planning than being the recipient of a party.  Zarah was to do the cake and she brought cupcakes...10 of them.  There obviously wasn't any communication between the planners as there will be 12 people here.  We are short cupcakes!  Oh well.  I imagine I will call someone today and have them pick up a couple cupcakes.  LOL.

Hi Lou Ann!  Thank you for all the information on Nan.  I imagine she is a very fascinating woman!  I am so glad that you had a great time up north!  Have a wonderful lunch at the drive in.  Have both the soda and the cone in celebration of my birthday!  Good luck at your INR recheck.

Hi Dorothy!  Our weather continues to resemble yours.  Today finally it got chillier.  My outside the monitors says 63°.  Much more fall-like temperatures.  I also love the Russian composers!  Best of luck to Mike at his neurologist appointment.

We are having a birthday party tonight.  My mom and dad are bringing out dinner and Zarah made cupcakes and Lindsy and the girls will be here, as well as my brother and his wife, my sister, and Jeff is even coming.  The way I count it up is 12.  I have to call Lindsy for a prescription refill as she works at the pharmacy.  I could ask her to bring a cuple cupcakes but I think first I will talk to my mom.  There is a little bit of straightening up to do, but mostly we are ready.

I got a birthday present from my husband already this morning.  Just between us girls, he gave me a new inwelling catheter.  It was overdue, and even though I did not want to do it on my birthday, what the hey.  It doesn't bother me to have 1 put in, not like it hurts some of my friends.  For me it is a piece of cake.  So, it's appropriate that I have it for my birthday.  LOL.  I did drop a couple hints about presents I might like, but I am tickled pink to have a party.  That's enough for me!  Bless their hearts for treating me special!  Bless your hearts for all the birthday wishes!  Thank you all!

True happiness lies not in having everything you want... but rather in enjoying everything you have.

Happy Birthday annnieM!

Good Noon-ish.
I'm having more and more trouble getting here in time for breakfast ~ lol

This morning we decorated outside!   We haven't done that for a few years.  I'm not over-decorating like I did in the past ~ I may be intimidated by our new neighborhood ~ ya think?  lol
We just put up the two jack-o-lanterns on stakes that I made years ago, and our little "pumpkin boy" that we got at a craft show years ago.  He didn't handle the move all that well.   I hope he can keep his head throughout the holiday.  Yesterday we picked up 5 pumpkins, and we put those out, too.   I'll take a picture later and see whatcha think.

I also got my bloodtest done, so I don't have to worry with  that for another two weeks. 

Yesterday Mike had his appointment with his Neurologist, and it went very well.   The Dr is seriously trying to drive me crazy, I think.  One time he'll be so negative and stress that Parkinsons is progressive and he makes it sound like Mike may have a couple of good weeks left.  Then the next time he's positive and encouraging.  Makes me crazed!

The last time, he said Mike may need to go onto the stronger meds that Michael J Fox is on ~ the meds he scared us about in our first meeting with him.   He increased Mike's Mirapex from 1 mg to 1.5 mg, but still said that very soon Mike might need to go on the stronger meds.  This time he said Mike was doing very well and increased the length of time between appointments to 5 months.   He was very encouraging about Mike's getting the Eliptical Exercise Machine and said that Mike was in a "window" where he could start exercising and might be able to hold off on that window's closing for a long time.  He used the word indefinitely.

I don't go in with Mike, so I'm getting all the messages second hand, but it definitely sounded much better.

Dr also said that 70% of Parkinson's patients are depressed.  Mike has never been depressed ~ other than as I have about temporary set backs to do with the house or finances or stuff that people get depressed about normally. 
He had initially recommended joining a support group, but seems to have come to our opinion that being around depressed Parkinson's patients would NOT benefit Mike.  lol.

We went to the Bonefish for Mike's Reward Dinner, after stopping at a couple of places to buy pumpkins and look for flowers (which we did not find).


Lou Ann, I'm sorry I couldn't finish my post yesterday.   I'm so sorry about Rissa's miscarriage.  I know how devistating that is.  Bless her and Matts hearts for coming anyway, and focusing on others for the weekend.

In spite of the pain and lack of sleep the first night, the weekend sounded wonderful.   I loved seeing all the pictures!

You really are blessed to have so many good friends ~ but then, they are so lucky to have YOU for a friend, too.

The wonderful meals you had made me drool!   Seriously yummy sounding.

Oh, my, poor Jordan!   How awful!   I hope he is quickly healed and that they didn't do the surgery needlessly.

Good luck with your INR test.


annnieM, I'm so glad you are having a big party with lots of people who love you and that YOU didn't have to coordinate it!   (That will let people know what a great job you do when they see a how a party not coordinated by you goes.  Ha)

Have a wonderful birthday party ~ or parties ~ and a great Birthday WEEK!


Waving at Mary Ann and Ayla and everyone else.
