October – Quite a month!!

It has been a while since I did a blog post. It has just plain been a busy month! I bet you know what those are like. The days have been filled with lots of good things. Here are some of the things that have been fun and made it a great month…

power washing

Power washing the final panel of vinyl siding on the house. Since we live in a warm, humid place there is lots of mildew throughout the year. Throughout the warm months I  regularly spray panels on the house to clean them up!

yellow pepper

And let me also mention that the month has been filled with family times and fun with friends. We welcomed our daughter home from college for fall break. Plus we welcomed our 6th grandchild into the family this month! What wonderful gifts each of our children and grandchildren are!

And so there is October, and oh by the way, there was lots of work, a quick trip to Charlottesville, Virginia for a  work meeting, and lots of other good things each and every day!
