The weekend started off dreary and rainy but ended on a high note-bright sunshine.
The school I currently teach at was celebrating homecoming activities. I kinda like some of the dress-up days we had--Squad Day, Character/Super Hero, Jock/Nerd/ Throwback Thursday-it was neat seeing the kiddos dress and of course the faculty dressed up as well. It was a beautiful week-sunshine and warm temps one would have thought we were in the month of May, not October. Friday, the rain/storms blew in--ugh! Our football game was cancelled and will be played tomorrow night-Yep on a school night-need I say more.
Before the storms came, the sun was shining. It had been raining so the football field was muddy and since it was Homecoming I am glad no one (especially the girls) had to trudge across that muddy field. I had grandson (he wanted to spend the night even though the football was cancelled and his dad would be home) and we headed out to a nearby town to pick up a few items. The sky was cloudy, but it was still warm outside. We got our few items and I stopped to get Grandson something to eat-Drive-thru. As we were leaving the drive-thru it was like the clouds opened up. The rain was coming down hard, the wind was blowing, and lightening was dancing across the sky. I had great difficulty driving so I pulled into a store parking lot. The rain was pelting the windshield so hard I thought the glass was going to break. I called hub to let him know Grandson and I were parked waiting on the rain to let up. The rain did let up after awhile and Grandson and I make it safely home. I was a little shaky but thankfully we had made it home safe and sound.
Saturday was rainy and dreary. I was able to do some inside cleaning and some laundry. Hub called and said daughter and her hub were coming down. I made a big pot of homemade chili-good for a rainy day. I love smelling chili cook but the aroma hangs around more than I like so I fired up some pumpkin candles. Grandson was happy his aunt and Kenneth were coming. He celebrated a birthday earlier in the week and he was of course wanting his presents. When daughter and Kenneth arrived they were both grinning from ear to ear. I couldn't figure out why but when they took off their rain coats, I saw something brown underneath. They had gotten a new puppy! Daughter said she had been working with babies for the past few weeks in PT and she was thinking about having one but Kenneth decided to get her a puppy instead. Good thinking, Kenneth! The new puppy, Champ, is a boxer and he is so adorable. :)
Sunday was a gorgeous day. We headed out to the pumpkin patch.
The leaves are beginning to change.
and I did get a pumpkin. Such a beautiful day.
A perfect way to end a weekend.
Hub has a doctor appointment tomorrow with his oncologist, so whisper a prayer for continue health.
Have a great week and Enjoy Life!
