Happy Anniversary!

It's been 35 years since we "tied the knot." I can't believe it's been that long! It seems like just yesterday when this photo was taken. Of course there are certain tell-tale signs that say that isn't true. . . like hair-dos, glasses, and bow ties. Oh and that adorable little ring-bearer? He's 39 years old now!!! Time flies by so quickly ~ make sure you take time to enjoy every second of every day!

It's a Little Chilly

I can't believe I am saying this, but it's a bit chilly here. Fall has definitely arrived in the midwest. My favorite seasons are spring and fall (Yes, we have 4 different and distinct seasons here in my neck of the woods!) because of the moderate temperatures. I am definitely not a hot weather loving kind of girl! We're down to the 60's here this whole week. But it's not officially Indian Summer because we haven't had a freeze yet. The air is crisp and cool, but good old Mr. Sunshine is showing his face so that helps take some of the chill out of the air.
Thought I would share some more photos from our trip to the Botanic Gardens a couple weeks ago. The various colors and textures were so rich and beautiful.
The photo below looks like my backyard after raking up leaves, but the leaves are still attached to this low-growing plant. Simply gorgeous!

I love the softness of these grasses. . . .they remind me of feathers!
Won't this planting of mums surrounding the tree look gorgeous when they bloom? The buds are just ready to burst open! I wonder what color they will be?
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful autumn weekend!

Good Morning!

This morning I thought I would make a weekend breakfast on a weekday. The usual cereal or yogurt wasn't going to cut it today. So I whipped together some ham & cheese scrambled eggs and serve them up with a slice of the cinnamon bread my daughter baked. Yum!
What did YOU have for breakfast today?

Farewell Summer

On this last day of summer (sigh) I thought I would share some photos of the rose garden at the Chicago Botanic Garden which I took during a visit there this past weekend. I was surprised to see how many blossoms were left.

All are regularly priced at $14.95 to $27.95. Even if you don't cook, the hand-drawn illustrations on every page of the plaid cover Gooseberry Patch cookbooks are worth the price! These make great gifts too. . . Enjoy!!!

This and That

I love how my new crop of flat leaf parsley is growing. The first batch, shown here with other herbs, didn't make it earlier this year so I'm giving it a second try. I hope I can keep this batch alive!
Yesterday I had a nice long telephone chat with a long time friend from my college days. So much has happened in both of our families this summer that it was nice to finally have time to catch up. We're planning to continue our conversation when we meet for breakfast later in the month.
This is what I've been working on this week. Sorry, but this is all I can show you for now. I'll be sure to share the final project when the time is right.

Never Forget

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “

I Couldn't Resist

Last weekend we got to spend some time with our adorable grand-dogs.
I just couldn't resist sharing these photos with you all.
We love when they come over for a visit.
We took them for a walk and then it was time to take a nap.
The sleepy head above is big brother Shooter.
And this little cutie is Hank, who will be 2 years old in just a few days!
