Thanks, Ruth, for getting us started.

I just got home from a wonderful visit with my grandkids and their parents. I am so grateful.

My sister is coming to visit! I am so grateful for that , too.

Saw so many pretty leaves. My favorite time of the year.

My grandaughter stops fussing when I sing to her,

+ Disney is having tooth problems but my vet is going to fix her up. I am grateful I can afford doggie dental work.

+ yellow wild grape leaves mixed with red Virginia creeper - lovely on the fences!

+ some nice donation cheques for the Mill

+ roasted Brussels sprouts - a fall meal

+ another quilt is ready for binding. (I love to hand sew bindings while watching TV in the evening.)

+ my calendar that reminds me of things I forget - like people for dinner next Tuesday

- friends, family, YOU ALL, fb, internet, cell, music

- my warm sweatshirt on over my flannel nightgown.. good combo.
