What an absolute joy of a weekend. The temps were perfect. I could not stop taking pics. So many years the beauty has not been as vivid and just dried up, but this year we had more color and I had more time to enjoy and bask in its beauty. Above was the scene while ironing. Always love looking into the woods while ironing.
The kitchen view of course had color.
The sun room was gorgeous! And the doors were kept open to the sunroom since the temps were mild.
A Winner has been “CHOSEN”?
While posting pics I saw that Biden had been called has the winner of the presidential election. I posted a statement in Facebook that it wasn’t my candidate but that regardless I had BIG BIG expectations from Mr. Biden to protect our rights as citizens and not let our country go to pot, as it already has and that he has some big tasks ahead to reverse it. I really just want to live in a safe place, have appropriate rights as a person, and for everyone to love one another. Even though he is not my candidate, I will hope and pray for him and will still expect for my rights as a US Citizen to be met and to not have any further hardships as a country. He has a lot on his shoulders and I hope he is up to it. Of course as soon as I posted it – my friends started commenting and attacking one another on the post. And telling me not to get ahead of myself. I stayed out of it. Even when you say something nice and have good intentions people attack it on Facebook. I’ve come so close to just deleting the entire account a few times. But it holds so many memories and photos on there, that I hate to. Plus I don’t want to lose contact with friends.
I was told it wasn’t over yet. It’s not. They are still counting. Yes anything can happen. Still, I can post what I want. I don’t know who to trust and who to believe but I remember what it was like in HR and you did an investigation and the mud slinging started and anything and everything started coming out – true or speculated. So glad I don’t have to deal with that stuff anymore and this reminds me of those days. I just try to ignore it because you don’t really know what is fact or fiction as I sit in my little house in Mount Juliet.
So I’ve not looked at the news this morning. But as of now, as far as I know, Mr. Biden, “Tag, Your It” and we will see what you can do in those shoes. I expect much of you as I would any leader! I will still expect the same from you as I did Trump. I was not a fan of Trump’s arrogance and tweets, but he seemed the best candidate in my opinion that matched where I wanted the country to be. I think those traits really hurt him in the presidency. I’m not sure any candidate can adequately run our country to tell the truth. Our country is mainly changing because of the people in it and their attitudes and corruption. So if anyone can solve those issues and keep us our rights, more power to you literally! I will pray that the Lord moves through you!
Katy’s Virtual Baby Shower
Saturday morning we had time to leisurely work on household projects, laundry, some planning, and getting ready for the week ahead. We were in Gallatin, TN by 1:00 p.m. for Katy’s virtual shower.
My SIL Susan had some little snacks sitting out.
What great fun!
We then hung out for a while after saying our good bye’s virtually and we headed to Madison to the new Yahoo Brewery there. We had plans to celebrate Susan’s birthday.
Everyone nearly was outside. And why not – lots of spread out tables and seating and the weather beautiful and deer grazing nearby.
George, Kevin, and Susan. And I did my best to get a selfie with ALL of us. I’m not good at that.
Afterwards we went to have a nice meal at Lincoya restaurant in Hendersonville. We shared a poutine dish which was OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Poutine is fries, gravy, cheese curds, and onion straws. It also had bits of roast beef in there. They had so many nice things on the menu that it was hard to decide. So when Susan said she was getting a burger I let me eyes wander over to that side of the menu. And I liked what I saw and could get my salad too! And as it turned out. I think it was the best burger around, possibly the best one I’ve ever had. I was hungry and it was snarfed down in a hurry! No fries. We already had them under the poutine! I needed the salad!
We sat by a most unusual clock. Susan said it was previously owned by Conway Twitty. The restaurant we ate at used to be Mallard’s. I will want to go back here. I really liked it.
We came home and slept well and then had a big day Sunday at home. Once again the leaves falling got my attention as we had some wind gusts mid-day. This is looking out my office window.
More of the sun room. I told ya I couldn’t quit taking pics.
Big Day of Shopping Online
George and I gave Alexa a lot of ingredients for our shopping list for Thanksgiving. We will go ahead and get what we need for the meal this week. George secured the Smoked Turkey from Aldi. And I sat down and began ordering things. George’s, Momma’s, Aunt Martha’s, some for Katy. George will have to help me with the men, and he always does. But we are in good shape.
Christmas plans are also coming together sortof. So I am feeling good about our weekend progress. I stripped the guest bedroom sheets and washed them so I will shift some focus onto the cleaning – as there are things that need to be dusted and cobwebs in the corners and such. I did get our blue linoleum floors mopped yesterday – except the part where Maisy was sleeping. LOL With each mop stroke, I dreamed of my new flooring – coming soon!
And now I need to go get a second cup of coffee and get to work. Oh, I painted my nails which needed it. It won’t last but 3 days. I need to get a top coat I guess. I just cut them all short as my attempt to grow them is not working right now. I really miss getting them done but I am wanting to use that money toward my monthly subscriptions I have – in support of my hobbies. So when I look at my nails I remember how much I love making the imovies. However, I did not have time to work on the current one in progress due to the HOLIDAY HOOPLA and events we have had planned but I keep making some more footage so we’ll have a lot to do going forward.
I am trying to remember to video more as life happens. But not very good at that in public yet. I also have noticed my iphone getting slow. I deleted a lot of old video footage from it Saturday while we were traveling in the car and that helped. The goal is to keep getting better on every level. I am going to start working on my 2021 plans soon. Looking forward to that. In the mean time we stay focused on the holidays to try and make it special for everyone as it’s different this year.
Here’s my 2021 goals so far! LOL. Don’t worry it’ll be filled up soon. January is Grandbaby Month and February is Flooring and Hibernation Month. That is all I have so far. Ok off to more coffee! See ya mid week or as I have something to say!

What an absolutely wonderful blog that has been this morning. The photos are great, like us it seems you are having a lovely Autumn …or. Fall as you call it. I think Fall is a much more sensible name for this time of the year when all the leaves, fruit, etc are fall..ing. I’ve no idea why we call it Autumn, I will have to ask somebody…..After me saying I had never heard of a baby shower, blow me I read about one in the local newspaper over the weekend…….My weekend was also interesting mainly because I was able to ZOOM ! Now you know me and having to venture into something new that is “teccy”. But a friend talked me through the instructions and when the time came I found myself in the ..waiting room…to join the meeting. There were four of us interviewing/ being introduced to our prospective new church minister who will start next September. We only had half an hour to kind of get to know him and he us. I think he might be suitable, so as the others thought so as well in the end , we said that subject to him accepting us he will be our new minister. I should hear tomorrow if he wants to come to BATH.
So that’s another thing I have mastered. Not much to most people but to me a
“Red Star Day”…….Take care. Enjoy the rest of the day. Xx
Wow now that you can zoom – we can zoom! ha!
I enjoyed your pictures, The fall leaves are beautiful. I feel a sense of sadness when they start falling, And the blue skies turn to gray.
I am hoping and praying that things will get better since Biden has been elected. And I am glad to see a woman is Vice president. That is huge.
Your Katy is really blossoming. It won’t be long and she will be holding your little grandson in her arms. Wouldn’t it be great if he was A New Year’s baby? Here they win all kinds of things and get their picture in the paper.
I like the virtual shower idea. It takes a lot just starting out with a little one. I loved getting out of my daughter’s things and just looking at them before she was born. .
I hope you have a good week. Take care…
Greetings, Sonya! I agree with Sybil that this was a wonderful blog, not that your others aren’t, but this one was especially good. Loved the pictures! You have so much more color from your fall leaves than we get here. So beautiful!
I feel the same way you do about the president situation. We can only hope for the best.
You’re making great progress on your Christmas gifts. Wish I could say the same. We were supposed to have our big family gift exchange and weekend in Estes Park the first week in December but had to cancel due to Covid so the holidays will be kind of a bummer this year.
I’m so excited for your grand baby and your new flooring coming soon. Fun!
Thank you Mona!
