Beautiful Weekend

We had such a beautiful weekend for our trip to see the fall color. The river bluffs are getting pretty and will be probably even more so this week. It was just enjoyable to be outside enjoying the fresh air. We started off in the upper 40's and ended up in the low 80's.
We went South on Saturday for our tootling and North on Sunday.
Today we have had rain off and on through out the day. It is in the 60's at the moment and has been there practically the whole day.
My youngest grandson has a new thing now. To try to get his way, he wants to bargain. I really don't know where he picked that one up. He is looking forward to his party this weekend. Anymore whenever they are having company. It is a party. I would love to be a mouse to watch all of the kids. There will be seven with the oldest being 11 and the youngest being three. They are close to age and their parents all went to college together. The kids can play and the adults can catch up with what each other has been doing. They didn't have to have a babysitter which I thought was nice.
We won't get to do our annual fall trip to Branson this year. Just to many things going on at the moment. I am not to take anytime off the next couple of weeks. I wasn't planning on it because I have used all of my vacation time up with doctor visits and I can't blame my other half for that. I have seen the doctor more this year then he has which is unusual. I am going to try to get back the bp meds that the insurance company wouldn't pay for. The doctor did give me an alternate if necessary. It is in the same family as the one that I want.
So much for that. It is bed time and tomorrow is another day. Have a good one.

I love the rain, esp in the fall when the leaves are changing, falling from the trees. It's just that time of year when everything old, changes. It sounds as tho you had a nice time. I love hearing what you are up to, Char

Hi Shirley,

Friends of mine just went to Branson. They had a great time.
Have a wonderful week girlfriend.

Hi Shirley! I just love the fall! It's cooling down nicely here on Long Island. It's in the low 50's now, but it will go into the low 60's by afternoon....You weren't too late for my giveaway, I just threw your name in the hat. Have a fun day! xo Paulette

Lucky you to have a fall trip to see the leaves! Glad you had good weather. Thanks for stopping by Buttermilk Cottage. I enjoyed reading your note about your college days--they WERE good ones, weren't they!
