this afternoon I was sitting in the living room listening to music I’ve recently downloaded to my phone

took quite a while to get the music to play… checked my settings, my volume and everything else I could think of… after fussing with it for a while, tried turning the phone off and then back on… after that it worked fine…

made me laugh because that is usually the first thing I recommend to colleagues and friends when they explain about a computer glitch…

was listening to Willie Nelson as I waited for my kids to get here so we could carve pumpkins

last year we did the carving at their house in their newly renovated kitchen… it has a huge island which was great for a number of people to stand and sit around while worked on their masterpieces…

George had such fun choosing and carving the Halloween pumpkins… he was always the last one at the table, after everyone else had run out of energy and patience and left partially finished pieces…

he taught the girls how to scoop out the seeds and goop and then have the fun of drawing and cutting out a face… with the grandkids times had changed and the designs were much fancier… which also made them more difficult to complete… and often they all wanted the same pattern… but he would figure out how to get everyone on track and having fun…

then there was always the exciting part when candles were inserted and the lights went turned out and the magic would be revealed…

such fun memories;-)…

here’s what we did today…

they picked up costumes on their way over so we did get pictures… yay… they are the cutest onesie jammies… a frog and two foxes…

we used the pumpkins that the kids grew in their garden… the carving went well… everyone decided on simple looks… came out great…

pizza, wings, salad and Halloween cupcakes for supper and then we went to the Park and took a few laps around the Formal Gardens… 

full day…
