Nice fundraising results! Who gets the big check?

Sun is trying to be out today. Yesterday was a blustery autumn day, but warm. We saw 50/50 last night. We each cried just a little, at different times I think, and both laughed. It's really a buddy movie - a heart warmer, despite the original subject matter. The effort to set it in Seattle was the biggest flaw in the production.

That's really nice Eric!

We had a gorgeous day here. Sunshine, low 60's. Just awesome. Went to church, read paper, clipped coupons, grocery shopped and now doing some projects outside to continue our preparation for winter. Beautiful weather for all of that.

We had a great time last night with the friends that came over for dinner. I think they and my R probably weren't feeling great this morning. They polished off four bottles of some wonderful wine. I had two glasses, and felt silly and stopped. Going to church with a hang over is not fun!

R is going to sit in a tree stand for a while this afternoon, scouting that big buck! I've got a meat loaf prepared, with two squash halves begging for butter and brown sugar to bake in the over. Yum!

I'm content too, Eric!

Took an hour walk in a local garden / park - Kubota Gardens. Really lovely fall colors. http://www.kubota.org/Garden%20images.htm

The sky was much more blue today and the colors vibrant.

There was a large wedding party wandering about doing wedding pictures - and speaking a foreign language, possibly Russian or Romanian? The younger males had on too much cologne.

sounds like you all had a great day.

I went to Mr Greens funeral today. He is the man from my support group. It was also the 1yr anniversary since we lost ConnieB so it was a tough day.

I marked the date with a tattoo that I've been wanted for about 8 years now...never knew exactly what I wanted until recently. I drew a very rough sketch of it and the tattoo artist took my idea and kicked it up.

I'm not a tattoo-y kind of person, but this means a lot to me. And I got it on my wrist so that a watch or bracelets will cover it if ever I need to cover it up...only problem was that is one of the most sensitive areas on your body and it hurt LIKE CRAZY. But I love it.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and wishing everyone a wonderful week.
