Conversations are good. I certainly missed my written ones when my computer was causing trouble for so long.
I really enjoyed the weather here and staying at home and out of the rain this Saturday! I got some sewing and mending done as well as that ever present laundry. We had lovely 60 degree weather all week and now we are heading into winter. I've been following a storm that's dropping snow all over Minnesota, Wisconsin and other deserving states. I think it is heading our way by the end of the week from what the weather predictors have said. Ah, well...it is November.
Today we had a slow steady rain, and with it came a wind that gently tumbled most of the remaining leaves off many of the trees around here. I still have a a tree that has way too many leaves on it and after cleaning up a pile of the fallen ones yesterday my poor husband felt almost defeated by the growing piles that have taken their place on our lawn and by the back door. The dogs remained indoors since their run has only one dog house and they crowd in it in the rainy weather...not much room for either of them especially now since we piled in the straw-filled burlap sacks just a few days ago in preparation for the winter months.
I have to share how much I'm enjoying playing with my new techie toys these days. I also love the calendar on my Touch since it has an alarm on it to remind me of important events. That's for the terribly forgetful person in our household - ah, that would be me! I hope this new handheld will keep me on track since my Palm was dying and I kept losing power after only 4 hours. (When you do that you lose ALL the info, and that can be a yucky experience!)
Life continues to be good for us here in West Michigan. I enjoyed two of the grandkids all day yesterday. One granddaughter shopped with me during the day which made for a fun time, and my oldest was here for 5 hours from the afternoon and on into the evening. We got to plan for our coming trip in the Spring of 2011. I'll share more about that in future posts, we're certainly excited about! :-)
