   Another day of sunshine, I just wish some of my friends were getting the same thing. I am praying that Hurrican Florence will turn and head back out to sea or at least lose it's strength so that it won't be so bad for my friends in the Carolina's and the East coast. 

   It is getting closer to the first day of fall or autumn which ever you prefer to say. I love that time of the year when the leaves start to turn. I will miss looking out the back door seeing the trees turn in the back yard of my old home. The kids will take me to see the color and I plan on taking my camera.
   I don't know about you all, but I love to do picture puzzles especially Thomas Kincaide's. They have so many pretty colors. The last time I went to Branson with the kids we went to his store. I saw so many things that I would love to have, but I didn't. The kids think that I need a Christmas tree this year. It has been a long time since I have decorated a tree.
    I thought I would show you my chair for my apartment. It is comfortable, but I think I like my recliner better. I know my recliner that is close to my windows make it so easy to take a nap in the afternoon if I am not careful. I am gradually getting it to look the way that I want it.
    My middle grandson is going to to their first 8th grade band competition. He is in the percussion section.and my youngest grandson plays the trumpet and he is learning to play the tuba because they needed onein his band. He still plays his trumpet besides the tuba. He is in the 7th grade. 
     The month is flying by and I don't really know where the time has gone. I wish it would slow down so that we can enjoy it better and smell the roses. 
     Enough of this and that, I need to go do my walk. Take care.

Shirley, I think we could smell the roses if time did slow a bit...it takes me longer to get all the fun things and chores finished. LOL. We missed things from being super busy when our children were young...now we miss things because we are not moving as fast as we did back then. Gee , can we ever win...yes, because of what we know now, we are more appreciative. Blessings to you and your family...those boys are amazing. xoxo, love, Susie

What beautiful puzzles Shirley. And a very nice chair. Yes, be sure to get out and see the leaves when they change.

You have certainly adapted well to your new surroundings, Shirley. I think you need a Christmas tree, too. I hope it is not too sad for you to "go home" to see your trees showing off their splendid Fall colors.
Love to you and your sweet grandkids. xo Diana
