Good Morning Dear Blogging Friends!

I've been gone so long.  I was not sure I would come back, but I did miss this mode of
communication.  I missed your visits, your comments, and visiting all of your blogs.

I have moved, and downsized.  I learned that moving is a big job, but it is also a rewarding
job.  Now, there are many less boxes of "stuff" in our home.  Now, we don't have a large,
open attic, where I found it all too easy to store all those things that I was not sure what to
do with. 

I had help in moving.

I've been enjoying all of the beauty of this season, in my part of the country.

I've had the great privilege of attending five "Grandparent Day" happenings, of my local

I've had fun making final decorating touches to our home.  I am thankful for the berry
bushes that I discovered outside our front door.

I've wiped away tears, and consoled when necessary.

I've watched made up plays and observed imaginations being lived out:)

I've fussed over carefully chosen Halloween costumes.

So you see, I have been quite busy, living a simple, yet somewhat complex everyday.

I am thankful for so many days of lovely weather!  I am grateful for so many things in
daily life.  The older I get, the more they all mean to me. 

Thank you for stopping by!  Wishing you touches of joy today, whatever today looks like
for you.

How nice to see a post from you this morning! I have thought of you often in the midst of your busyness this past summer. Wishing you two many blessings in your new home...making new memories with your precious grands! How nice to see some of their smiling faces on your post today...growing up before my eyes, it seems!

Judy, so glad to hear from you. You are so right in that any extra space is just an invitation to put more "stuff" there. I'm trying not to do that but haven't been as successful as I should have been.

Love the photos and welcome back!

Your little airline pilot made me laugh out loud - how cute!

It was such a happy surprise to see your post. You have been missed.
Glad to hear your move is now behind you. I can only imagine what a big job that must be. We have far too many attics and they're all full. I shudder to think of the day we have to deal with that.
Loved seeing photos of some of your grandchildren. I can't believe how grown up your granddaughter has gotten and the photo of your little airline pilot is absolutely adorable!
