an evening on the lake

ahhhh!!!!!!!
wow.. august is over.... summer has gone by so fast.... This was my last vacation day for the summer. (I still have more saved for other holidays and special events though.. dont worry!)
hubby at the lake too!
Anyways, I started my day at Barnes and Nobles this morning and bought these three new magazines.. all are great and worth picking up if you see them! Then tonight, I packed up a small picnic dinner.. (hotdogs and chips! cant get much easier then that!) And we headed up the road to the lake. I went in for a few minutes, the water was clear and the temp was perfect, but I kept seeing little fishes.. so I got out! I was in just long enough to get cooled off, and by the time we left I was actually cold! Wish I could say that now...
rob and tiff
Robby and his girlfriend Tiffany met us up there and we had a nice time. I should have brought a deck of cards up so we could have played some Eucher.. but I didnt. didnt even think of it til now! Actually the bugs started coming out so it was time to leave. And we were sitting under an apple tree, that kept dropping apples near us.. I was getting paranoid!
tonights lake
but it was gorgeous there. I hate the thought of summer ending!
Though I have to admit, I am looking forward to halloween and fall decorating! Im thinking in about 2 weeks. Cause, dont you think its a bit early yet? it wouldnt take much to convince me that I could do it now! lol!
OH... colds gone by the way and thank you for all the get well wishes! Well off I go.. I'm working on a project and will posting a challange for you all soon!
stay cool and sweet dreams!

WOOOOOHOOOO! Your mean old cold went away! Glad you had a refreshing day! And - too early to decorate for Autumn? NEVER!!!! Heck, I've already pulled my boxes out of the garage & am sorting through them. I'm READY for ALL things non-Summery! (Trust me, Viv! Come live one August in Houston, and you will understand why Summer doesn't make me happy!)

Hi Viv!
I love the way you live out loud. You know how to play and craft and love your family. That kiss planted on his cheek is so sweet. What a lucky guy to have that beautiful beauty!

I'm itching for fall too. I had my own adventures with apples this last week. Went out to an apple orchard and picked two buckets and home again, home again...jiggidy jig to make pie.

I'm loving being at home. I opened my home business Jackie of all Trades on Sept. 1st which incorporates a cookie business, selling two home party plans (At Home America and The Watkins products) and I'm doing a craft show and selling antiques in a booth...lots of fun stuff going on. Life is rich and a blessing, especially with you in it.
