Weekend Past

This past weekend we celebrated my birthday.
Had a wonderful day Saturday, the actual day, with DH.
He fixed one of my favs for supper, fried oysters!

Also hush puppies, cole slaw and baked fries.

As a special treat he made something unique, marshmallows!

They are yummy and do taste so much better than the store bought ones!

Sunday the kids came over.

DH cooked another one of his specialties.
Like a Mexican Lasagna.
This was before baked.
Serve with chopped lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.
Must have not got a pic of after!
He made a dump cake for dessert.
Was a grand day spent with family!

Kindle gift card! So must decide on some books!

This wonderful scented candle came from the folks in NC!

Smells like butter cream frosting!
Also in package was 2 books. Some fun reads.
All in all an enjoyable couple days spent with loved ones in person and those close in loving thoughts.

Been a busy week here with med/dental appointments and other goings on.
We went to vote Tuesday. So up early to go with DH at 6AM to do that.
Had a prob with a machine but ended up using the old fashioned paper ballets!
Sometimes pays to have a back up plan!

I do hope to be sewing again real soon!
Miss it.
Want to make a few simple things for Christmas gifts.
I do love an old fashioned Homemade Christmas!

Still loving my Fall decor here.
We have enjoyed it! Have had fun hosting some Fall meals with family.
Will be planning the switch to Christmas soon!
The cooler temps we have had made it fun to plan for a Winter holiday.
Was even humming Christmas tunes!
Not around DH though. He would think I was pushing it a bit!!;-)
Watched some holiday movies on Hallmark Channel too!
Love Christmas movies and books!

We are off later today to look at front doors .
Also make order for carpet.
Sunshine and cool temps. Tad windy though.
To be back warm again for weekend and in 70's next week!!
Up and down the temps go!

Should be a pretty drive to Suffolk with all the Fall colors aglow!!
Will share my drive home yesterday with you one day this weekend .
Was beautiful!
Made a fun stop at a neat thrift store!

Take care all... have a grand weekend doing what makes you happy!!
