Beautiful Day

Today has been absolutely wonderful. We started the day in the 60's and stayed in the 70's all day. We had some light rain and cloud cover. It made you want to be outside to enjoy it.
I chose my image today because I love roses and my birthday is Thursday. I get to chose what we have for lunch . We all eat together when there is a birthday. A special treat. I don't know what I will chose as of yet.
School has started for some of the kids, My oldest two grandsons start the 26Th. I don't know why they are starting so early because they don't have a full day of school until the 18Th of September.
We will go a week from Thursday to an exhibition to see what our grandson has learned this summer from his riding lessons. I know I can see a difference in his riding when he showed Charley this summer. He is riding Charlie and one of his instructor's horses in the exhibition. I just don't know which one. He is excited about doing it.
I have got another tea towel almost done. I am really happy with this one. It is of a kitten in a tea pot with the lid on his head. I have finished two that I just need to put the borders on so it shows you what I have been doing. I have been under a lot of stress with work, the hot weather, and my other half not feeling good. They thought his problem was just the heat and to keep close tabs on him. At work I am trying to get my year end put together for our cpa and it isn't going well that is for sure. Maybe tomorrow will be better, but we will just have to wait and see.
Well you all have a wonderful rest of the week.

Here you are with all your things going on in your life and you are taking time to come by and leave such beautiful comments for me.
What a blessing you are and I hope things get better for you too. Maybe it is the weather and hubby will be feeling better soon.
