Welcome to October....

Monday, October 8, 2018

Well, the month came in with a roar and we are still reeling a bit. We have had family in town from Colorado for the funeral of our grandson. They've been able to see some of their extended family while here and head back early (REALLY early) on Tuesday.

I thought I'd share a few snaps for this first week of October...

I bought this great pair of leggings from a local gal - bit warmer than my regular ones but now I'm ready for Halloween.

I got my skull mug from Amazon and I love it...heavy and huge at 30 oz. Perfect for my Skinny Pirates (Diet Coke and Captain Morgan)

In preparation for family arriving, we did some last minute clean-up and de-winterized the RV. We discovered the kitchen faucet had a leak that Stu wasn't able to fix. At ten years old with eight years of almost constant use, we opted to buy a new one. We found this at Lowe's and absolutely love it. Instead of the side sink sprayer that we rarely used, this one has a pull down nozzle and came with a side dispenser for detergent, hand wash or lotion (your choice).

At the same time, we finally ordered two narrow end tables from Amazon for either side of the loveseat in the RV. We liked the extra features in this one, USB plug-ins as well as a slide-out shelf for cups and storage below.

We've had some nice weather where we could sit on the deck in the late afternoon/early evening. Few bug bites, but worth it. The NUB? That's a Bluetooth speaker connected to our Amazon Echo in the house letting me listen to my tunes outside.

The #2doods are definitely enjoying the cooler weather, whether in the yard or on the deck.

The hummingbirds are still active, just not quite as active as the yellow jackets. Both are getting read for winter.

We got out for a nice motorcycle ride a couple of times...low 80's made for perfect riding temps.

Saturday we went to the Muddy Pond Volunteer Fire Department annual BBQ. Delicious and well run. I opted for just the sandwich plate (no bun), Stu opted for the Adult plate (no bun) and we both skipped the included dessert.

And last but not least, sometimes an accidental photo (snapped as I was putting my phone into my purse) turns out okay!

Ciao for now!


  1. Stew looks to be in deep though in a few of those pictures. Always planning!
    Nice to support worthwhile causes and still be able to keep the Carbs at bay.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
