I puttered around the house in anticipation of Gretchen's (Gladsome Lights) arrival. We had scones and whipped cream, pears and blue cheese, nuts, and tomato red pepper soup with LOTS of cheese croutons on top. I haven't had a scone in a while so I piled on the whipped cream. Gretchen had her scone with butter and jam.
Oh, how I LOVE Gretchen. We could have talked for hours and hours more. She is so gentle, so kind, so warm. Wow! Such a person! I feel very much richer having spent the afternoon connecting with her. I am so grateful. We have both had our blogs for so long and knew each other only through the text we shared, but sitting face-to-face with all of that background knowledge (from reading each other's blogs for so long) made for a real soul-to-soul communion which is miraculous. Powerful. I'm basking in the afterglow.
Millie chose a fuzzy toadstool for my birthday. I love it.
I hung a shelf and gathered the gnomes. Sometimes I need "company coming" motivation to do things.
My brother and sister in law are arriving tomorrow afternoon and will be with us for a week. I'll be so buzzy that I'll probably have a hard time falling asleep at night.
What a beautiful time of year for them to visit. The leaves are lovely and the weather will be very warm then very cold. They'll get an accurate read on Colorado weather! So erratic!
So today, I'll tidy more and scrub the bathroom. I'll vacuum my car (maybe - I hate this chore). I'll shop. All good. People are good. Loving God and loving people, the very best of LOVE.
Thank you for stopping in. I hope you enjoy the end of lovely October! We have a houseful coming for dinner and trick or treating. I'll try to take some photos, but I might be too busy fluttering about.
What does November bring?
