Yesterday, while hanging some clothes on the line, Corynn and I both simultaneously noticed and 'wow'ed the trees behind our house.
It is odd to see such vibrant colors these days, as autumns colors have long since faded and floated down to the earth leaving the trees exposed.
In fact, these are the only trees in our area that are still colorful. and COLORFUL is an understatement, don't you think?
And they just happen to be in OUR backyard!
I guess good things DO come to those who wait.
Speaking of waiting~Mommyto3Blessings, I am working on your bonnets today and tomorrow and will be in the shoppe in the beginning of next week. I do hope to make a few more for a larger selection so you can choose which ones you prefer. We'll see how able I am! ;-)
This weekend, a childhood friend of mine is getting married and alas, Matt has to work. I am becoming more and more acquainted with single-parenthood.
I take the children shopping by myself.
When we must, we worship by ourselves.
We take week long excursions by ourselves.
I will be escorted by a Little Miss and a Panda boy at this wedding.
Needless to say, I don't know that I will be getting very many pictures! :-)
Thankfully though, I don't need to make the drive by myself. My parents are also attending the wedding with their brood and since they have such a LARGE brood-they also have an accomodating vehicle which they affectionately refer to as 'the bus'. It is 15 passenger van, so it literally IS like a bus!
Besides seeing Julie (my friend) wed and meeting another Matt (her betrothed) and visiting with my family for three hours in the car, and enjoying NOT having to drive, I am ALSO going to get the pleasure of staying in a bonafide HOTEL room.
Yes. You heard me correctly. We are staying in a hotel room! The last time I recall staying in a hotel room was four years ago and there were no children involved, with the exception of a certain Baby Boo taking up residence in my belly.
Not only THAT-but THIS hotel even has an indoor POOL!
Double. TRIPLE WA HOO!!!
The only sad bit is that we get to have all this fun, minus the Papa.
