Weekend Wanderings Episode 5



In August, Mr. D and I had a great 2 weeks on the road. We took our time and stopped when we saw something interesting and had no agenda. It was fabulous! It’s a great way to take a vacation. We have spent so many vacations in a huge hurry to get somewhere which was fine at the time, but if you can this is a great way to go. We both were in agreement we will do this again. Here are the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

It’s Pumpkin Time!

It's Pumpkin Time!

It’s Pumpkin Time! Already. Can you believe? I cannot go into a store without being bombarded with everything pumpkin flavored. I even saw Pumpkin Cheerios! I mean I like the flavor, but cereal??? Have you tried it? If you have…please leave a comment and tell me. I may just have to spend the $4 to try them.

I have been decorating just a little for fall. I don’t do a whole lot, just little touches here and there. I go all out for Christmas so I don’t feel like having to dismantle everything for two holidays/seasons so close together. Plus, my husband has a fit every year when I start getting all the boxes out and tells me that I need to get rid of some decorations. I can’t imagine if I started adding a bunch of fall, too. AND how do you get rid of decorations?!! Isn’t there a law against that?

Things that make me happy


I always enjoy these posts. I love looking through my pictures and seeing what pops out and me and gives me a smile. That’s how I come up with “What makes me happy”.

The three of us had been out shopping and having lunch and took a coffee break.

Happy Labor Day! I know that after today it always seems like summer is over. Kids are back to school and everything pumpkin comes out along with boots and scarves. I was trying to remember back if Labor Day was a “special” day growing up. All I can remember is, that the next day school started and we were busy getting ready for the big day. I was always upset that I had to go to bed and it was still light outside. lol  Now days I don’t have to worry about any of that and I can spend my day putting my feet up while drinking a pumpkin latte and decorating the house with pumpkins and all things orange. I loved the days of getting my kids ready for school (even though I home schooled them) but, I enjoy this stage in life even more.
