Oh my goodness September is almost over. I seem to still be in August and soon it will be October. My new Halloween Banner is courtesy of Sandy. Love this banner and even though it is still in the triple digits I am dreaming of cooler temps, soups and casseroles (my comfort foods).
So again it is Sunday afternoon and time seems to have accelerated and my weekend is gone. It was a very busy weekend starting with a trip to Michael's for what we thought was a duct tape demo for making costumes. Alas it is next Saturday. Oops wrong day. Sadera is duct tape queen so we were all disappointed well maybe not Anthony that we had the wrong day. We did manage to pick up a few things for craft projects to get us into the Halloween mood. After our failed Michael's trip we headed to Olive garden for soup and salads. Good food and good to be with Jenn and her family. One of these days TJ has got to drive in from Casa Grande and eat with us. So far we haven't convinced him.
After a quick Target run and near misses of accidents in the parking lot we headed home all of us tired and hot. I was taking a brief nap when Colleen called to tell me she was 30 minutes from my house and was stopping by for a few minutes. It was good to see her and we were able to catch up on everything. She went over to Roy and Daisy's unloaded and then we headed to Wildflower for dinner. Soup for Daisy and me, fish for Colleen and Roy's favorite linguine and clam sauce. A fun day was had by all of us.
Today's adventure was Starbucks (Colleen is back in town:) ) and yard sale at Kim and Ricks. I think we visited more than shopped but each of us came home with treasures some of us had much bigger treasures than others. So big that it will take a haul to bring it to Colleens. She is now the owner of a beautiful old old post office cabinet with tons of cubbies and beautiful doors that shut and hide everything inside. Too bad I don't have room for it or I would have stored it for her wink wink!!! Kim has pictures of the cabinet on her blog check it out.
It has been a good weekend and am sad it is almost over. I need another day to clean or not.
In between running around I managed to finish up my pumpkin. Got to love glue guns they save so much time.
Yard sale treasures a typewriter and a big old jar
More ceiling tiles, keys lace cards buttons and an embroidery patter
Yes my grand kids were goofing off trying on Christmas hats
the kids and me
Jenn and kids
And so another weekend ends and another busy week begins
Colleen is here for 3 weeks so I am sure we will have several adventures in the making
