Welcome to Virtual Coffee Tuesday!! Come in, come in…..I don’t think we’ll be sitting outside today-its a bit too chilly for me. I’d start out by offering you a nice big mug of hot coffee. Nothing too elaborate because yes, I’m a little boring when it comes to coffee. I prefer mine black with only a small spoonful of Sun Crystals to help sweeten it.
I’d then let you know how thankful I am to have today off all to myself! I do feel a little guilty for taking the kids to daycare and I did think long and hard on it but I honestly think they’ll have more fun there playing with their friends rather than staying home while I clean, change out the closets into our fall clothes, and grocery shop.
I’d tell you what a great time we had on our fall trip to Gatlinburg! More post and pictures on that topic to come! One of the best parts of the ride there and back were the really neat tunnels we got to go through! Keagan couldn’t believe that we were driving through a mountain.
Oh and how could I forget another excitement we had on our way home! We like to call this, “The Runaway Winnebago!!” We passed this camper on the highway after we saw it change lanes and about slam into a BMW beside us. As we were passing I saw that it was a little old lady driving this big monster and felt bad for her. I thought surely she must be scared to death. Well did she ever prove us wrong. This lady I believe thought she belonged on a Nascar race track. It became a joke with us in the car as we sang away to, “She’ll be coming around the mountain when she comes…..” I laughed and laughed! Then decided to snap a few pictures as she started gaining ground on us and just so happened to get her running off the road in one of them!
and last but not least because I know you need to get going….I’d remind you about my artful stone swap I participated in: https://schrocksterslive.wordpress.com/2010/10/13/artful-stone-swap/
Today is the mailing day!!! I really struggled with this because I’m just simply not the creative type. I did figure out something I thought was appropriate since all the ladies I’m swapping with do have a garden they tend too. Here is what I came up with and I can’t wait to see what I get in return. Each stone has the chinese symbol for “Grow” painted on one side and then the word written on the other-They are then wrapped in tissue paper with the little chinese proverb taped on top.
Thank you for visiting me on this beautiful Tuesday morning. I hope you enjoyed your coffee….Until next time. xoxo
