Happy Monday morning to you! I am still lounging in bed with two cats on either side of me, watching it rain and listening to the wind blowing outside and I am wondering what you are up to today as you start your week off.
My week begins with Chris leaving for a 2 week stretch where we won’t see each other which kind of bums me out since I have gotten kind of used to his face being around but it is our life and I am very grateful for the job he has.
To keep myself from missing him too much I have a couple adventures planned which include a visit to see Aaron and my new grand kitty, Diego, in Raleigh. Yes! It’s official. I have an adorable grand kitty named Diego and I suspect you might see some pictures of him.
Then it is off to Charlotte to see my BFF Ann and go to see Women of Faith for the second time this year. We are both looking forward to it and I am so excited to share it with Ann. I went earlier this year with my sister and niece and it was a great time. There also may be a post coming about all things Pumpkin Spice Flavored……
Some of you may wonder about the torrential rains that Joaquin has dumped on the east coast and if we have gotten some of that. We have gotten a lot of it and today the wind is kicking up as well. The cats are freaking out with watching leaves blowing around on the porches. It kind of cracks me up. We were working on creating another lake in Connestee Falls between our yard and our neighbor’s yard. Fortunately it has gone down a lot since I took this video on Saturday. Apologies for the poor video quality. Not sure what the deal is with it.
We got a lot of little projects done around the house this weekend and it is feeling more like we live here. It is a weird thing this moving. It takes awhile to figure out how things will fit in and what pictures will work where, if curtains are needed or will just detract from the view, what plants we may want to use in landscaping that the deer won’t nibble on, and just figuring out the rhythm of my days here. We are settling in but our travel schedule will continue and I am not going to say no if Chris says “hey-do you want to come with me to._____”.
Oh and remember the hair chopping I got? Well, almost 8 weeks later I think I can stand my hair. Just need to get the grays covered and a little trimming done but this time I will be crystal clear about the cutting part.
So as Monday develops I wonder what you have coming up on your docket. Let me know in the comments and don’t forget that the Comments for a Cause this month will go to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
