happenings in mommanator land

Went to Florida and had a wonderful time at the friends house! The weather was unbelievable!

When the hubby and I returned the first thing out of his mouth was-'Lets go back- it looks so dark and dismal here'. I had to put on a light jacket as the weather had really turned whilst away! Our family is rethinking a move to Florida, my hubbies arthritis didn't bother him at all while we were down there.

Next a.m. it was 46 on my back porch! oyeh- for those of you that have been wanting the fall to arrive! Has been an unusual fall thus far- the trees don't have as wonderful Autumn look. Noticed today while driving the kiddos, some geese were traveling north- the trees and the birds are confused!

Have been back in Maryland this week- what did we do today! We tore up carpet and put down some linoleum- that was great fun with a four year old helping! However it didn't take as long as expected- we started 9:30am and finished somewhere around 1pm.

All the festivities of fixing the floor of the dining room stopped when I got a call that one of my cousins had suddenly died! He was 62, fairly healthy, but guess he had an undiagnosed aneurysm that ruptured. They aren't exactly sure! That stopped me in my tracks. I just have so much trouble believing he died., but it happens.

Just wanted to write about that to encourage all to keep smiling, if you've argued- apologise, call someone you have been thinking about-for you don't know what the next day or minute has in store for ya!

I pray you bear me henceforth from the noise and rumour of the field, where I may think the remnant of my thoughts in peace, and part of this body and my soul with contemplation and devout desires.
William Shakespeare
I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.

i'm so sorry for your loss. my prayers are with your family and his.

i, too, think this is a strange Fall. it keeps wanting to start and then summer keeps popping its head in. i really think it's global warming. poor geese, though. i hope they figure out and fly south, soon.

I'm so sorry about your cousin's death.

I know the weather here was tempting but when you consider moving remember the hurricane seasons we had only two years ago. It's a no fun place during those times. We still haven't had any fall weather as far south as I am. They hinted a front might come through this week but changed the prediction today. Just more humid and hot days into at least next week.

So sorry to hear about your cousin! Life is much too short! Your family is in my thoughts.

I am glad you enjoyed yourself in Florida. Some time away is always helpful!
