That is how I feel my summer has been. Heck, that's how the past few years seem to have been.

Fall is about here. Outside everything is starting to transition from the vibrant summer colors to the warm fall colors. Can't complain too much about the heat this summer. It was not that bad. But I have been hearing that according to the almanac and other sources that this winter could be a "dandy". Colder and wetter than normal, whatever "normal" is here in Oklahoma, haha!!
The garden produced "ok" I guess. We had onions, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, green beans, & squash. I love eating the fresh veggies from the garden. Not enough to can/preserve , but plenty to keep us fed.
I have already been Christmas shopping.....the UPS guy was delivering the other day and I told him that a lot of what he was delivering was Christmas gifts....he told me that he wished everyone would do this cause it sure gets rough the few weeks leading up to Christmas ;-)
I have the most important gifts bought - the ones for the grandkids, haha!
They are discovering Tonka trucks, John Deere tractors, power tools, etc....so.... a person can only imagine what this ni-maw got the them ;-)
It is so fun to watch them play. They get a truck or toy that would make a motor sound and they start their "motor". The daughter asked how in the world they knew how and when to make those noises and I told her that all boys do it. I think it is in their genes, hehe!
My younger brother would sit in his room and play with his hot wheels cars and make all sorts of noises, so one of my sisters and I decided to "tape" him doing it one day. We played it back and he was not amused, haha!!
I got the boys a Hot Wheels track to play with here. They have played some, but it will see more action when the weather turns colder. For now.....we spend all our time outside when they are here. We all love being outdoors. They have toy lawn mowers that they love pushing around the yard. Ritzy has an old John Deere tractor that he had as a boy and they love getting on that thing. They are just about big enough to pedal it. They also have a sandbox under the big maple tree. We just have to check for snakes each time we open it....ewwww..... We have also hung 2 swings (that they love swinging in) from that old tree. That tree has been here ever since I remember living in this house and it was big back then.
This Friday is their night to spend the night with us.
Sooo...I guess I better get rested up....guess that means Ritzywife out!!
