The Crazy Grey haired lady running around today is just me...

Hello Company Girls!

Well, it's a lovely mild day here in Southern Ontario, Canada...and I'm enjoying it! I will admit, and I realize that it's almost committing suicide to do so.....but....I'm not an autumn person...or winter.....the only redeeming things in my books are beautiful coloured foliage and Christmas...other than that I'm afraid I'd jump right to spring! When I read my blogs....so many people rave about autumn and how much they love it!...me...not so much....I hate seeing all the trees go bare, the grass yellow and brown...I hate the cold...can you tell I'm not really an outdoorsey person?

So...today is a busy day.....I decided to have a family dinner tonight...usually these occur on Sundays but eldest son and wife and baby William are coming tonight....I'm not sure if they're staying one or two nights but....they are coming! (For those of you that don't know, they live just over three hours away and with our schedule and their schedule we only see each other once every 3-4 months...babies do a lot of growing and changing in that time!)

Plus in the last week there have been three birthdays in the family...first was eldest daughter's, Leslie...she turned 36 (good grief I'm old!)...then Laurens' boyfriend Ryan..he's been coming around long enough that he's part of the family, and then Laurens' birthday...(which I blogged about a couple of posts back)......so it's grand birthday time!! I was going to bake some cakes but ran out of time and energy last night...and today the roast of beef has to be in the oven most of the day.....it's got to be fairly large to feed all 16 of us! So, must purchase the cake today....finish the cleaning, pick up a small table and chairs from sister, pick up prescription from drug store, pick up Maya's guitar that I dropped off yesterday at music store to get string replaced, set the table, find autumn decor somewhere downstairs, finish prepping veggies, make Yorkshire pudding batter, and fortunately, in all of this, have a massage...that I booked 3weeks ago, before I even knew I'd be doing this today!

....and, if Megan's glasses just happen to come in today (please read previous post)...then I'll take her to get those too......when she gets home from school.....

So, I must get going....things to do, places to go, people to see...have a wonderful weekend!

Oh my, I'm tired just reading! So nice to have family coming in. I'll pray for Megan's glasses - no matter how patient you feel, you certainly show patience!

Have a wonderful family dinner...I know you can't wait to get your hands on that little one.

If I lived in Canada, I wouldn't enjoy autumn much either...it would be a sign that FREEZING winter was on its way, YUCK! Here in TN, it is a sign that the 100 degree temps are about to give way to some beautiful 70 degree days...and for that, I cannot wait!

Have a marvelous weekend! Blessings!

What a great time you will have with your grandbaby! Oh and although I love fall, I really don't like cold weather. However, cold in Texas is like 55 degrees, which you might not consider oh-so-cold!

I can't do cold either...unless I'm inside somewhere warm. =p

Happy birthday to all!

And enjoy your time with the baby and family. And enjoy your massage too!

I love family dinners! You are creating such wonderful memories for your children and their children. Hope it was a great time!

I'm one of those who absolutely can't wait for fall! I guess it's because we have such brutally hot summers here. The cool weather is just such a treat. Also we don't have near the winters you have. My 4 year old asked me today when it would be time for snow. I just chuckled and told her she lived in the wrong part of the country.

Hope you are having a great weekend! And I really hope the glasses are in!! Hang in there!

I hope your weekend has been full of all the best things, like cuddling a little grandbaby!

My family has a burst of birthdays all within a week, so I always love when we get to do a party for more than one at a time--it makes it extra festive.

The Lord knows when we need a bit of pampering, and I bet that massage was just what the Good Dr. ordered! :)
