Happy Monday to you; it is so hard to believe that it is already the first Monday in November~you know what that means, the holidays are right around the corner.  I hope you had a great weekend and got to spend some time doing something that fills you with gratitude.  We had an enjoyable evening on Friday with our friends.  Once again, I was so caught up in the dinner that I forgot to take photos.
The neighbors stayed till about 9:30 and then hubby and I quickly washed all the dishes.  Saturday I walked with the gals and then hubby painted our master bedroom.  It is so nice, very warm and inviting; once all the upstairs is done, I'll get some photos.  He worked in the afternoon, so I got some time downstairs sewing-Yeah!  Yesterday was a great day too~church, a quick run to a pet store for some food and by the time I got back, hubby was already painting the ceiling of the hallway and entry way.  He still has the living room and laundry room ceilings to paint.  I got some more time downstairs yesterday with the Christmas wall hanging and today will make binding and a sleeve and put the finishing touches on it.  In the evening with went over to some other neighbors for cards and were very disappointed in the Broncos losing to the Raiders.  Today I'm walking shortly and then we'll run to get more paint.  Hubby is playing golf this afternoon, so that is when I'll be sewing.  If I can get this project done today or tonight, I'll be able to cross it off my list and start a new project-either a birthday present for our Kim or more Christmas presents.
Our weather has been so incredible and I'm so very thankful; it encourages me to get out and keep walking.
Joy to you~


  1. Can't wait to see your finished Christmas wall hanging! And your hubby is awesome doing all that painting! Amazing!

  2. Such a nice post. I really enjoyed reading it. So happy you had a great weekend. Keep having more fun this beautiful time of the year and share it with us:)

    1. Thank you for your nice comment; I've tried to find your blog but haven't been able to. Hope you have a great week.

  3. I keep hoping this great Fall weather lasts until December.

  4. Noreen, We too are having the best weather. To be in the sixties here for days. It may rain some tomorrow. Maybe God's way of cleaning the muck up. LOL You husband is very good at getting to the painting on his own. I would love to paint here...but just can't make myself at this time. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

  5. Busy days are upon us with the holidays fast approaching. Our Mom was working on checking all the outside strings of lights today. She wants to get them out there before it gets too cold.

  7. Hi Noreen. It is that time of year, isn't it? We are all so busy....and the days just seem to fly by.

    Looking forward to seeing your finished project. xo Diana

    ps. Not sure if you can see it or not but it is kind of hard to read your post with the leaves overlaying the least for me. Just thought I would tell you for whatever that is

  8. Sounds like you've had a wonderful weekend. I think the days are just flying by. Its so nice that your hubby is painting. Its always nice to have that fresh look in our homes. It sounds as though you sew every chance you get...good for you! Enjoy that time creating and making special things.
    The weather has been warm here too. Some days it feels like Summer and other days we have a touch of Fall. I'm enjoying it before it turns freezing out!
    Enjoy your week!

  9. Glad you are having good weather ♥

  10. Sounds like you have been busy again. Good for you. Looking forward to the photos.
