Miscellaneous Monday

Happy Monday to you. I hope you had such a good weekend; I certainly did. On Friday I mentioned we were heading to Estes to register hubby's new car; although it takes about an hour to get up there(we were heading up anyway), it only took us five minutes in the DMV to register it. It was wonderful to be in and out so quickly. We had a nice lunch, hit my favorite quilt store-Cottage Bliss, got our youngest grandson pj's and slippers for Christmas at another store and drove through the park. I will say, if we lived up there I would work/volunteer at Cottage Bliss; the owner is a gal name Sheri and she was the cover on Country Woman about 8 yrs ago. This store has become as much of a gift store(with some of my favorite goodies)as it is a quilt store. So when we left DMV, we drove by a home that had this railing on it's deck. We loved it and would love to find one for our deck.

Another beautiful sunset; if I had to choose between getting beautiful sunrises or sunsets, I'd definitely choose the sunsets.

Last night we had such wind and have it today as well. I bailed on walking; I just don't enjoy it when I'm being tosses all around and Hunter really doesn't like it. Our snow didn't arrive yet but the warmest temp was this morning around 6:00 a.m. and it was 55 degrees. Right now it has dropped to 46. By this afternoon it is supposes to drop to freezing; it is raining as I type. So this was one view out of our deck this morning; notice how very dark the clouds are-storm rolling in.

This was looking in the other direction; sunny and blue, but sure to disappear shortly. 
On Saturday, I attended a Women's Jubilee Celebration at church and the speaker was wonderful.  She is an author, counselor, mom, grandmother and a Woman of Faith.  Her life has been marked by so much grief, but she shared lessons learned.
Yesterday, I heard a 90 something lady who was a nurse in WW2.  What a story she shared in honor of Veterans Day.  A perfect weekend.
Today, hubby and I will head to Costco for a few things and see if we can start finding gifts for family and friends.
I hope your weather is pleasant and that you have a fantastic day!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend apart from the weather. Here it pelted down yesterday afternoon but now back to being sunny and mild. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. We got the snow and now it's turned cold. They are saying our Nov. is going to be cold. Our Oct. was the warmest we've had in 40 years. The weather here is so changeable. However because of the snow, my boss gave everyone a snow day off. So that means 5 days off for me. It also means a lot of quilting! I love that fencing, so pretty.

  3. So nice you had a fun time with your husband...and getting in and out at the dmv. Blessing. Loved your pictures of the sky. Yes, I think it's going to be winter way too soon. Stay warm and safe. xoxo,Susie

  4. That is a great deck. We have never seen anything like that before! The winds howled last night and just blew today. Mom and dad went out for their long run and mom said it was cold cuz of the wind.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. I sure hope you are being held nice and warm inside your home tonight. Although snow is SO cold, I do remember how beautiful it was while it was snowing and how quiet everything got! I'm sitting here tonight with the doors wide open, about 75 degrees and beautiful. It make up for the 110 plus degree weather of summer :) Blessings, Cindy

  6. You have the most special days that always seem to turn out to be fun!

  7. I love fun day like you described in your post. You never know what you're going to find around the corner and all the more special because you spent it with your "love"….I love that railing….

  8. We are missing most of the snow but dealing with winds and bitter cold temperatures arrive tomorrow to stay too long! I really like that deck railing too!

  9. Sounds like you had a nice drive and that looks like a great gift shop. It would be fun to work there.

    We had a bit of snow this morning--northwest of us a bit they got about a foot of snow this morning.

    I wouldn't walk in heavy wind either. xo Diana

  10. I love that deck railing, too! The temperatures back home have been dropping like a rock ... an hour ago it was 40 degrees cooler at home than here in Hilton Head ... and it's not any too warm here. :-o
