here we go again

We spent six days at the cottage. 
Gorgeous Fall weather and scenery. 

It was a work trip for Dan,  lots of outdoor projects. 
 Chris, Derek, Nick and Josh came up to help him. 
Thankful for our family.

Of course Kelly was there, so happy to spend time with her!

On another note, I am going to the hospital Wednesday, October 15th. I will be having my right knee replacement surgery.  So, not sure when I will update the blog. 
Here we go again...

Take care, be blessed

Getting In The Mood

We are at the beginning of my favorite time of the year....Autumn! 
I can't think of anything I dislike about Autumn. 

 And I plan on enjoying this season as much as possible before I go back into the hospital on October 15 to have my right knee replaced. My left knee is doing pretty good. I finished physical therapy this past Tuesday. Of course I have exercises I do at home.

Happy Friday and a lovely weekend to all.

Happy Saturday

Good morning and happy Saturday! 
Hope your day is off to a great start. 

As usual I was up early. Early mornings are nice and quiet. 
I did my pt exercises, (after a cup of coffee). 
  I try to do the exercises three times a day and
 it's good to start off the morning with the first set. 

This afternoon Dan and I are going to the Hall family reunion. It is always fun to see family and eat good food!  We also have an auction to raise funds for this yearly reunion.  Everyone donates items for the auction and it is a lot of fun to watch and bid. Wonder what we will end up buying this year?  

Take care
