A Week From Thursday

The countdown has started for our  get away for a few days. I am so ready after this past week. We have decided on a place to stay and the shows that we are going to see. We have two shows on Friday and two  on Saturday. We will be leaving a week from this coming Thursday. Our son will house sit while we are gone.

We took a drive today to see the fall color and it is getting so pretty.Today reminded me of the weather the day we got married 48 years ago which is the 19th of this month. In a roughly a couple of weeks, we should have a lot more color. My problem is I need a chauffeur to drive while I take pictures. It would just be nice to ride. He he. We can't have everything we want. We could always take a bus trip, but we like to do our own thing and on the bus you have a set itinerary. We won't have a lot of free time to go shopping, but I don't really care. I am looking forward to setting and enjoying the shows one being the 12 Irish Tenors. I just like their singing. His show is Ann Margaret and Andy Williams. He has to see the girls.
I don't know if we will get to stop at Lambert's or not on the way down to eat. We always have a good time if we do and you get so much food, Plus they walk around with more food for you to try. You have to watch out for the flying dinner rolls. It all  depends on what time it is  when we reach that point. I just hope the weather is good.
The first night will be spent resting with a lot of time on the road. We will have to make a few stops along the way so he can stretch his legs or else they will swell. I will have some embroidering with me if I want to do some, but just how much will remain to be seen.
You all have a good week and enjoy the weather.

I hope you have a wonderful time and be safe.
I bet your fall is starting to be beautiful. Here, we have fall if you go up into the mountains, but in the valley the trees don't begin to turn until Dec. It's hard to feel the same as the rest of the country.
Your porch is lovely and so inviting. With the cooler nights, I am sure you are feeling the magic of the season.
Be safe and be well, have a great time, Char
