Hello my Dear Friends & Happy Monday!
I'm sorry that yet again I've been busy and more absent last week. I'll be playing catch up this week and make visits to you!! The end of last week a girlfriend of mine had tickets to an author/motivational speaker that she loves and I went with her for a couple of days out-of-town. It was so fun! Neat event, great speakers, yummy food, shopping, great girlie time and conversation. I'm so blessed with the best friends in the world. ;) However, now I should actually be around and no more running out-of-town for a while and my weeks should finally get back to normal. Lol
We had a nice weekend here too once I got back. Some snuggling in on a rainy day. Got things done around the house. Went to dinner with my Dad & step Mom and gave them tour of the new office building. More football snuggle time with Hubby. I hope you had a great weekend too and have a very blessed week ahead...
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Sunny and lovely. Supposed to be in low 60's today. But then rest of the week going to cool down into the 40's and 50's. Yikes!! Snuggle in time for sure. And later in the week supposed to get some rain too.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
My Friend and I had a trip to Trader Joe's on our adventures and I picked up lots of goodies, including some pumpkin spice O's cereal - so yummy! (don't judge) And I had some of that this AM with my creme brulee coffee
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Listening to some Celtic music and writing in my planner as I also work on this

I see the sun shining on the bay - however a lot more bare trees back there now. We had some windy weather this past weekend and blew lots of leaves away. Boo :(
