After a busy and emotional October it's been great to be home. The first week of October we were in Virginia. I will share about our trip another time. Then the rest of the month was spent with Grandma. It was hard, yet wonderful to see the love shown to her.
I am drying some flowers from Grandma's funeral. I have plans to use them in our bedroom. I have been buying bits and pieces and plan to update the bedroom next year.
Doubling down on school to do a little catching up. We had been taking it over to to Grandma's but there was so much going on it was hard to get it all done.
Before the first snow fall Megan helped me with yard work. Chuck and I were out with a flashlight finishing up the last of the work the night before it snowed. Finished just in the nick of time!
We had dined out to the point we were sick of it. It's been nice to have home cooked meals on a regular basis again.
The clean up crew. We all pitch in each evening to get the job done.
The cooler temperatures mean Mrs. Red is back in business. Tonight she provided a chicken soup. She was washed and left out so she is ready for chili tomorrow.
The dark evenings and slower pace have left time for reading.
For the first time in about 3 years I am excited to decorate for Christmas. I can't even explain how happy that makes me!
Christmas music has been playing and the decorating has begun. I'm not happy with the lights on this tree so tomorrow I will take them off and place them again. This is new for my home this year. My in-laws no longer wanted this tree and I knew it would be perfect in this spot. I hope to have it finished tomorrow afternoon.It's been wonderful to be back home caring for my home and family. Home is a beautiful word!
