I had a great three day holiday. Did you? We had company on Sunday, then a very quiet Monday. I always enjoy having my daughter and family for a visit. Today, as usual my son and his daughter come for dinner. Gives him a break from cooking, and a day for us to visit. Works out great. It has been like fall this week. Not my favorite time of the year, although I love the colors of fall. The pumpkins are coming!!! I love to visit the pumpkin patch, no little ones to take, but I like taking pictures of the "patch". Till next time. Antique Rose

Events of the past few days.
Well, last week was rather surprising, my walking partner of five and a half years, made an announcement that she no longer was coming to the senior center to volunteer or walk on any type of schedule. We walked around the lake Monday morning, and she didn't even mention it to me in private. Just told everyone else. I was rather hurt at first, but then, I got over it as I know she has been under a great strain with her older daughter having stage four cancer, another daughter getting married, and the youngest having a lot of problems with her health!!! I hope that being home and having a much lighter load will help. I do miss her companionship, but I will still do my walking. Who knows, perhaps another person will want to walk early as well. If not so be it. I also went to the garden club meeting. I like all the different people I have met in that group, and have learned new things about gardening. I will continue to attend the meetings, and tours as they come along. Looking forward to an outing this Thursday, and then there's the monthly birthday party for the seniors birthdays of September. That is fun to help with and see all the people who are in their eighties and nineties. I think it is wonderful that they are still participating in the groups, classes, etc. I hope I am when I reach that age!!!!
