Miscellany Monday

I always look forward to Miscellany Monday with Marissa. It's a great way to get the week started off.  Thanks Marissa for taking time out of your busy schedule to host us each week.

1. Hubby and I went to see his sister and her husband last Tuesday and got back home Saturday afternoon.  We had a delightful time, but I always have such a hard time getting "back on track" when I've been gone.  I don't get it, I mean we were only gone for 5 days and there's just the two of us. It shouldn't be that hard. Perhaps I just make a bigger deal out of it than I should. ~wink~

2. There is so much to do in the area of Atlanta where they live and they always have the most fun things lined out for us.  On Thursday, my sister in law and I went to the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain.  The festival opened Thursday morning at 10:00 and remained opened until yesterday afternoon.  One would think that Thursday morning would probably be a good time to go.  Well, let me tell you, we arrived at the spot around 9:50 and waited in a line of cars about 20 minutes just to get inside the gates.  Guess all the other attendees had the same idea as us. ~smile!~  We saw a lot of crafts and artistic items and walked away with a few.  It takes place in the park area of Stone Mountain and it was a rather warm day, so we made our way through rather quickly and were gone shortly after lunch.

3.  I am planning to do my outdoor fall decorating this week. I'm thinking if I go ahead and do it that fall will just go ahead and "show it's face" big time. ~laugh!~ I have the inside touches done, but nothing "announces" the seasons like the outside decor.  Pictures will be forth coming.

4.  Our little Grandson just got his first cowboy hat and boots.  Now, if the following pictures don't put a smile on your face, nothing will. Isn't he just the cutest little cowboy you ever did see!

A happy, happy week to each of you and remember, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

  9. First off, your grandson is PRECIOUS!! Cute pics :)

    Isn't Stone Mountain so fun?! We went for the first time this past March as my brother moved to Athens, GA. It was still set up as "Snow" Mountain and my babies had a blast playing in "snow" for the first time. We're visiting again at the end of this month but I don't think we're going to make it to Stone Mountain :(

  10. I just happened upon your wonderful blog and loved hearing about Stone Mountain (I live about 15 minutes from it). We went to the Daisy Festival on Saturday morning (early) and also ran into traffic...but it was fun to see all the neat crafts.
    You have a great blog :)

So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
