A Beautiful Sunday....

Hello Friends,
I hope that the sun is shining as brightly for you as it is for all of us NJ folks. We had a busy day yesterday. It started at 5:30 am for me, getting the kids ready for our treck to Claysburg PA for my father in-laws funeral/memorial service. It's a 4+ hour drive but the scenery is just breathtaking. We saw mountains, cattle grazing over acres and acres of fresh green pastures, tons of sheep with their little lambs running behind. We even spied a little red fox on a hill above the turnpike. My little Alex has an awful stomach virus, AGAIN!, so he had to stay with grandma for the day but I think Jake was very pleased to be the only child again for the day. We didn't get home until almost 11:00 pm so needless to say today is a genuine day of rest. I was so sorry I didn't bring my camera! I always have it with me but I guess in the hustle and bustle of the morning I forgot to shove it in my bag. The whole ride I was thinking of how I would love to live in the country like this, on a farm miles and miles from everyone. Then three hours later we were driving through the city of Philadelphia and I started to get excited about the lights and architecture and the energy. Good for me where I am, I'm within driving distance of both.

My Halloween doll is just about finished. Her hat, cape and broom are in the making and I'm thinking she needs a man......

I was tagged A-Z by my dear friend Dani from Ambitions Design.Here goes.....

I agree...I so want to live in a big farm house miles and miles from anyone but would miss the city life just a little! Thanks for the tag! It looks fun! I have to think about my answers! Happy Sunday!

First, I hope your weekend full of thinking of your father-in-law will leave you with a good memory of him. I really don't think parents should be allowed to leave us until they are at least 90.

Second, what a fun tag! I am so flattered! I will do it Monday. And girl, really cocoa puffs are your big indulgence? I think it has to have waaaay more calories than that to count as an indulgence! I love your description of boys, sweet adorable and gross just about covers it!
Enjoy your day of rest!
