Today... September 22, 2015
Something from my playlist... This was the number one song the month, day and year I was born. I've always loved it! I'm pretty sure, Eva Cassidy was not singing it, but I used her version because I just adored Eva Cassidy . . . enjoy.
These warm days are perfect for, soft-ball! Taylor Jo had a soft-ball game on Saturday and the weather was just perfect, a slight breeze to keep things cool and plenty of sunshine! Checkout that blue sky!!
On My Mind... I always get a little nostalgic this time of year . . . my father passed away when he was just 59 years old. He passed away on October 31st, Halloween, which was also my mother and father's wedding anniversary. We buried him on November 5th, which happened to be his 60th birthday. It just so happens that I am 59 years old. I will be 60 on November 7th. I will be exactly the same age my father was when he passed away . . .
On a brighter note, I was talking to a friend about this very thing the other day at the ball game. The friend I was talking to said, "I cherish every birthday! My mother passed away when she was just 37, so every birthday I have had after that age, is the best gift!" What a great way to look at life! I hope that's how I will feel, I will have to work on it.
Something Fun... Yesterday, my two daughters came over and we made, Autumn wreaths. It was so much fun and they really turned out so cute!
We made them with coffee filters . . . we just hot glued the coffee filters onto a green foam wreath form, and believe me, I have the burns to prove I did it!! Jess used a straw wreath form and hers turned out a little larger, her wreath is the one on the right hand side.
Jess making some last minute changes to hers . . .
Amber, my goofy daughter . . . nuf said!
They all turned out so pretty . . .
Each one with it's own personality . . .
They will look so pretty hanging on the door this fall . . .
All the burns were worth it, especially when I got to spend time with these two little grands . . . I really could just squeeze them . . . and sometimes do!!
Heheheh... So true!
Have a wonderful week sweet friends!!
