soon looked like this….Today was another beautiful day so we decided to go to one of my favorite places and ride bikes! This time we were blessed with Kayden going along…she would have NOTHING to do with a helmet so….we opted for her Dora hat (sorry Mom and Dad=).She figured out it was Kayden in Poppy’s glasses, haha!We rode over 8 miles – it was soooo beautiful! Ronnie and I decided it would be really fun to camp out on one of our Friday night’s =) I’m not thinking the kids want to join us, though!because it doesn’t look the RV will be part of the trip, lol!
or should I say VIEWS?!
Yes these are clouds but doesn’t it look like snow capped mountains? I’m sure it’s just as beautiful where you live but had to share!
and searched…and searched – but the whole time it was right under our nose. Yep, Ronnie and I have been looking for the perfect barrel for our bar. It has to be just the right size. We called, priced, googled and checked yard sales in search of our barrel.
But….today he discovered it was right under our nose, right in Dad’s building, lol! As expected, a deal was worked. A trade – a BUD hood for this barrel. PERFECT! and now it sits in our bar, just waiting for the Poker or Scrabble board…either way, lots of fun will be had with this new conversation piece, ha! Thanks Dad!
to be persistent
Wow – it was such a beautiful day today we were able to hold our “Annual Pumpkin Carving” event outside! Yay!! Kayden loved it too, lol!
Kayden and I took a break for a little while – A lot of progress had been made – a bucket full of ‘guts’!Oh no – gotta get the seeds out!Kayden cooked up some dinner for us –but this is what was really cookin’ – (all of my kids LOVE Italian so it’s easy to feed them =)
Boss’s Day kinda came and went. It was last Saturday so a little tougher to recognize/acknowledge your boss but…my team always does such a great job. On Monday I actually worked down in Tyson’s Corner so on Tuesday this is what was waiting for me…
I have the best team!
My admin is actually my boss – she keeps me on track, knows what I need before I even ask and brings a lot of fun to the group. She does far more than she should on any give day and for the most part doesn’t get recognized. I did notice something new on her desk a few weeks ago – LOL! I completely understand why she would feel that way, ha!
Yesterday we had our annual picnic. It was a little chillier than we had hoped but it was a beautiful afternoon. With that said, THESE are my people!Of course I have to mention my boss – he’s been great and has been my longest boss in the last 19 years. I have learned so much from him however recently learned he’s moving on to another job. Luckily we will still be able to work together but I will certainly miss him!
Tonight I received a gift…..this book. Purchased by my Mom for me. Written by someone a little younger than me. I stood beside her in the choir. I sat beside her in Sunday School. Her Mom helped with my wedding decorations. Wow. I read the first chapter and realized this may just be a real life situation put into words, a book, published for millions to read…..autographed by this same person I sat beside, stood beside and see every now and then in Wal-mart….Wow.
