Today:

1. The beautiful fall weather. The sunshine and cool breezes really make for a perfect day!

2. That James didn't have to go to work first thing this morning....I have him to help with grocery shopping.

3. Grandma's recipes. I got them out this morning and it brought a tear....so glad she gave them to me for me to keep her tasty treats going.

4. Fall leaves. They may be all over my yard right now, but they are just so pretty to look at and it brings memories of me and Jhanai gathering fall leaves to press.

5. My good neighbor friends. They live on the other side of town but our schedules are so different that we don't see much of each other, but we manage to call each other twice a week!
