Almost October

Well yesterday Cynthia Catherine Axsom accomplished another milestone in her life.

Her degree and a proud smile

She is now a Certified Nurse Aid.   She is already planning her next step in her career.  We are very proud of you daughter of mine.

Well it is the last day of September and we are waiting for tomorrow to start decorating for Halloween. In fact Cindy took me to Clarkston High School for the Craft show and we found Lucy (the goose) her outfit.

So she is our first October decoration ( i day early).

Lily couldn’t resist a closer look at her when she was dressed up.  Cindy has decided to get a larger goose and start dressing her.  It is out to the shed tomorrow to get the Halloween carton so the house can be decorated.

I have started the Trick Or Treat wreath parts but I have a long ways to go. I’ll keep at it and see how much headway I can make on it.

Our yard is in need of a mowing so that will be ordered next.  Right now the grass is so high that the little birds can hide in it.

I’m getting my entries into the Free Calorie Counter and doing an accurate job of it.  (Who says you can’t teach an OLD DOG new Tricks.)

I’m managing to read my novel also.  I’m on page 216.   I confess it gets in my way when I have other things to do.

It is a little warmer in the sunshine today so Brandy and i have been out on the swing.

Get outside and breathe the air.  Also do something nice for yourself!

  1. Lucy Goose looks lovely – I sent a copy/photo to Inez to let her see her, too.

    YAY, CINDY! CONGRATULATIONS! That’s quite an accomplishment!

    Glad to hear you ladies are excited about Fall & the decorations – decorate on!
