Hey! I'm still alive and kicking, although not too high. I thought about blogging several times this month but just never got around to doing it or by the time I decided to do it, I was no longer in the mood. Oh well. It's a good thing no one expects a post from me or realizes I haven't posted. ha ha
All is well here at Rocky Top Ranch. Fall has made it's appearance. Some trees show off their lovely colors while others just lost the leaves and now stand bare. It's been so windy here the past several days. I've mowed the grass for the last time this year, I suppose. The house plants that were put outside for the summer have been moved back inside and I've thought about having a fire in the fireplace several times. Murphy has decided she'd rather be inside...she just shivers in this cooler air and wind. (I don't like the hair shedding she brings inside, but I'm a softy...) I just sweep more than once per day when she's in here.
Both of my sons started their new jobs at Amazon Fulfillment Center which recently opened here in Murfreesboro. I'm so thankful they have good jobs with awesome benefits. They work 4 10 hour days and enjoy being off on Thursday, Friday and Saturday!
Andrew is growing so fast and too smart for his britches. I love my grandson so much. He will never know how much he means to me, aka Nana.
Hubby is blessed to be terribly busy with work. I'm thankful for the work but wish he could find time to rest and relax. He's always been a workaholic and that certainly hasn't changed. I appreciate all he does to provide for us.
I don't celebrate Halloween, so my thoughts are shifting to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Both holidays will be here too soon. I have visions of things I'd like to do, such as having my daughter-in-law over for a day or two of baking, making baskets of Christmas goodies, shopping for gifts and decorating for Christmas. Maybe it'll happen.
My thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Sandy. I cannot fathom how they must feel and the tough times they face. May God give them strength.
I guess I've rambled enough. Here's wishing those who see this and those who don't a wonderful, happy fall day!
