I got a big surprise this morning. My beautiful granddaughter Sierra and my daughter Angie popped in for a quick visit. Sierra is home from Florida for a wedding tomorrow. We will be having a gathering at their house on Sunday, as Sierra will not be able to stay for Thanksgiving.
Still trying to get many things done before snow starts falling around here. We have had the most wonderful weather this past week...lulling us into a stupor of not realizing winter is so near. Ted is winterizing the lawn mower . Checking out the snow blower and the generator. We have some more trimming to do today . We did clean out all the flowerbeds yesterday. I brought in the rose bud and found another near by. So they are in this little vase my daughter made in school. :):)
Last evening's sunset. See what I mean about clouds helping to make sunrises and sunsets more spectacular.
I went to my dentist yesterday afternoon, and he would not put in the permanent filling , as I am still have some sensitivity. So in two weeks, he will finish this tooth . Gaaaa...I am about nuts from this on going tooth saga. LOL
Blessings to all for a wonderful safe weekend. XO
How nice that you are able to spend time with your granddaughter while she is there. That's always a good thing. I love the sunset. It made me think that the clouds in our lives are there for a reason -- to ultimately bring beauty into our lives. I am so sorry for your ongoing tooth saga. Hopefully in a couple of weeks it really will be done.ReplyDelete
Hi Kathy, I want to kick and scream about my tooth...but what good would it do...But I am too the point of having it extracted if the sensitivity doesn't stopped. It's the money too...wow. I am retired and not more bonuses or paid holidays or anything like that. I do not get to have the time with my grands like I would love...but thankful for what I can have. Hope you and Joe have a great weekend. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Your daughter and granddaughter are so pretty and they look like sisters. Love the rosebud in the vase and, as always, the sunset photo. It turned cooler here today, too, but no forecast for real cold weather. Have a nice weekend.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, I can't wait to tell Angie that you said she and Sierra look like sisters...some times we need those little boost, don't we? hehe. No sunset tonight and thunderstorm is heading our way. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
What fun to have a beautiful daughter and granddaughter pop by. Winterizing the lawn mower? I should know something about this, but I don't...will duckduckgo.com it.ReplyDelete
Thank you Vee, it was a good visit. Sunday will be fun too. To winterize a mower...you just add some gas stabilizer to the tank. Good thing Ted worked on the generator ..a mouse had made a nest in it while it was in the shed. Pesty things. Hope you have a good weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Enjoy your time with your granddaughter and hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving, Susie!ReplyDelete
Thank you Laurie. I hope your weekend is fun and that next week isn't stressful with preparations. I used to really get worked up over holidays. Now I just go with the flow and try to help out here and there. My daughters have the holiday dinners at their houses...whew what a relieve. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a GREAT surprise and I am glad you are all going to be able to get together. Too bad she can't be there for Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
That sky is beautiful, Susie, and it looks like a Fall sky. Winter is supposed to get here tomorrow- ugh. Not looking forward to that at all.
I think you could write a whole book called The Truth About The Tooth! lol xo Diana
Diana, I was so happy to see my granddaughter. I miss her so much. I can't even begin to tell you the crafts and coloring we did as she was growing up. But it seems now that it all happened in the wink of an eye...and she was grown and gone to live her own life. She's my 1st born grandchild. :):) I do not want to think of how long winter could be. I never was much of a winter fan. Diana, I think if I did not have insurance the tooth problem would be gone a long time ago...I feel the gouge when I heard the dentist says, "She has great insurance." See what I am saying?...so sad. My regular dentist says wait and see before even thinking of extraction. I asked him , "Do you think I am so tough, that I would be the only survivor of the Spsnish Inquisition ?" Dang. Blessings to all of you, stay warm girlfriend, xoxo, SusieDelete
I love your wonderful days and what a happy visit from your beautiful granddaughter!ReplyDelete
Fall finally arrived here this afternoon. We plan to have a morning fire in the fireplace for the first time this season. I will take a photo but it will be bare bones as I have taken every last bit of fall down. The house looks rather vacant! I hope to decorate for Christmas next week!
I know you have been put through the wringer with that tooth of yours!
Linda, I will say thank you to God for beautiful summer and fall we have had here in central Indiana. I will think of you and LD sitting by the fire.:) This morning(Sat.) Ted went into town for the newspaper and came home with sausage biscuits from McD's. The fire was going when I got up and the coffee is what woke me. I sat reading the paper while eating and was ever so thankful for my life. I know a blessing when I see one. LOL. Wishing you and LD a great weekend, xoxo,love you, SusieDelete
Your daughter and your granddaughter are both beautiful.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy that you are going to be able to spend time with them!
Love the vase...and it's even more special because your daughter did it. I love to keep the treasures that my children made. They are forever treasures!
That sky is splendid.
We need rain here. It is beyond dry... We are praying for rain.
Continued patience as you wait on the completion of that tooth.
Hugs to you,
Thank you Jackie, my girls will smile when I tell what you said. You are right , the love put into school art things for parents are forever treasures. Hope you get some rain, no flooding. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Beautiful photo of your daughter and granddaughter. I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving week. xoReplyDelete
Thank you so much Mildred. I am wishing you and yours the same. It's wonderful when we can be with our families. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a great surprise. So happy for you. I hate tooth sagas! I am getting a cap on Wednesday. My Sister asked why I would do such a thing the day before Thanksgiving! It's all that would work for our schedules. Oh well...
I hope you have a wonderful gathering with family on Sunday and a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy that granddaughter!
Cindy, I am sending a hug for that tooth situation. It's a dang bother no matter when it happens. I hope you get a good result. You may have to watch what you eat and chew carefully. Thanks for the good wishes. I wish you and your family the same. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
What beautiful ladies in your family! Enjoy them. What a lovely sunset and I thank you for popping in to see me.ReplyDelete

This is a really good picture of Angie and Sierra. So nice that you got to visit with Sierra for awhile. Susie, that vase that your daughter made is so cool, and that red rose is just for me, right? hehehe. Oh my, you have the most glorious sunsets. I had a filling put in this week, and I'm almost done with my dental work, what a relief. :)ReplyDelete
Sheri, It did my heart good to see Sierra. I miss her so much. I hope your dental work goes faster than mine. Yes, you can enjoy this rose too. :) Have you ever noticed how much better home grown roses smell compared to store bought ones? It's winter here today, 38 degrees and windy. Some snow flurries .It almost shocking. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I wish I could take sunset photos like that around here!
Boston Boy, Those girls are going to have a swollen head from all the compliments. I do love my sweet kids. You would like them...they have crazy senses of humor. I miss your beautiful pictures of the Martha's Vineyard. I know you and Arlene will be loving your next trip. Blessings for a great evening, xoxo, SusieDelete
