Happy Thought: Adrienne spent the afternoon with a friend and I had a quiet afternoon.  This is the blueberry field I pass when I drop Adrienne off with her friend.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!  ~M


Decided to be done with the pumpkin. Could use extra detailing but I was drawing a blank. I think it turned out quite well! ~N

Had a day FULL of Happy Thoughts…we’d been fighting for some happies this week.  I spent time with just Nicole visiting and shopping then returned home to find I had a package from a friend in Italy.  She made this Koala for Chococat and me.  I named him Henry.  ~M


Made gluten free pancakes and bacon today! Yummm! ~N

According to the vet and the xrays we have “a special needs dog”.  As long as he isn’t in pain and he’s happy, we don’t care–we’ll hobble through life together. ~M


First pumpkin carving ever! You cant see the design on mine well yet, i’ll post another pic later. Way fun! ~N

Went to see one of my favorite authors.  She writes knitting humor.  Yeah, I know.  It’s okay.  I’m quirky.  ~M

Janet, Kevin, Me and Dave-a couple of weekends ago.

Retrieving pictures from my Alumni Band weekend in Reno. (this  one courtesy of David.) The 4 of us played percussion in marching band 1983-1987 for UNR Wolf Pack.  I think we still look pretty darn good.  ~M


Picked this up on my 4 block walk from the gym to work this morning. ~N

Darren and Adrienne. He has been helping her carve and finish her car for the AWANA Grand Prix.  Today he was overseeing the sanding. They are both balls of goof.  ~M


This has been a happy thought for me too :) its been sweet to watch her grow to like him. When we first started dating, she say him as the enemy. The one stealing me away from her. He’s slowly patiently worked his way into her heart. ~N

Finally.  Eric and I got a date.  Good food.  Great company. (I was so focused on enjoying the moment, I forgot to take a picture.) ~M


Sitting outside, under the umbrella, in the rain, watching Darren carve Adrienne’s car for the Awana Grand Prix ~N
