Home again

The month of October flew by.  We did our annual houseboat week at Lake Powell the end of September.  This year we decided to stay an extra two days and it sure made for a more relaxing week.  We had one adventure this year, our houseboat got stuck on the beach and we had to be towed off!  We've been boating at Lake Powell for 15 years and this is the first time we were beached, pretty good for us land lubbers!  Once we returned home, I packed my suitcase and flew to the mid-west.  Fall is my favorite time of year and this year was so pretty.  Some of the leaves had fallen but some of the leaves were just turning.  I made a drive to Ohio to visit my daughter and her family,  had fun w/ the boys.  Took my grandfather to Gays Mills, WI for apples and we had a beautiful day for a drive up the river road along the grand Mississippi.  Stopped for a visit w/ my parents and ended the trip in Cedar Rapids w/ my sister, Lynn.  Got to see lots of friends this visit and had a great time.  Alas, it was time to come home and sleep in my own bed.  Home again, home again...jiggidy jig!

Where have I been???

As is the usual for me, I've been sooo busy.  I've been sewing, trying to catch up on some of my many projects.  I also was on vacation for 9 days at Lake Powell.  I have too many pictures and not enough time to post some of them as I'm off to the mid-west for two weeks in the morning.  I have to get my fix of some Fall weather since temps in the upper 80's and low 90's is NOT my idea of Fall.  So, I've packed my suitcase w/ some jeans and sweaters and I'm hoping for some Fall color and some Fall temperatures..wish me luck!
