Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

What a glorious autumn day we had in northeastern Indiana today! Folks were out and about in shorts and tees, and motorcycles were everywhere. At our house, I had the lawn mower gassed up and running for one last time...at least, it better be the last mow of the season. (I'd be very thankful dear Mother Nature if this could be so!) Anyway, if ever there be an Indian Summer day, today, surely, must have been ours!
My mother-in-law's house is empty now, and all of her belongings are in the moving van. She's leaving the Colorado mountains, and coming to our small town, as she needs the lower altitude due to some breathing problems. She'll move right across the alley from us, so we will be back door neighbors! We're all looking forward to this, and having family close by will be a treat for us. (I'd be real thankful if their trip East was safe and not too grueling please.)
Josh came over for lasagna and fresh green salad with pomegranate seeds and green onion, and yeast rolls. It was delish, and he went home a happy camper with a full belly, and a dish to heat up for tomorrow.
I got the screens off the windows and windows washed, and I'm thankful to have had the energy today to make the food, mow, and do windows too. The corgis played chase and ball in the backyard, enjoying the sun. My daughter flew home safely following a week in Portland, Oregon, for her work.
We're all thankful for the lovely Saturday that we had.
It could have gone another way...but it didn't. Thankee!
