Happy Autumn/Fall

Oh no it’s official .. Fall has arrived!  I’m torn with love and dislike as I love the fall colors, but dread the cooler temps!  It won’t be long and winter will be right around the corner and that my friends I am NOT ready for!

  Happy fall 2

We spent the morning enjoying time with the grand kids and later in the afternoon their dad took them to spend some time with and so the dreaded task of getting our home washed was tackled.  It was a mess and never has it been so dirty since we’ve owned it.  In fact it had mildew on it!!  One washing is not going to be enough, were going to have to tackle this job at least one more time before Nov 1st when the water gets turned off here at the campground. 

We did have a beautiful day for doing the job.  Hope you all enjoyed your first day of Autumn/Fall .. until next time …

Fall Festival

The day started off with a bit of chill but it wasn’t long until the sun warmed things up nicely.  Today we took the grand kids to the Fall Festival here in town.


Of course their first choice is to head straight to the petting zoo.  We got some pet food.


The cow, sheep and goat were getting lots of attention so we did feed them long, the poor Llama wanted attention too so the kids decided to move to him/her fast. 


both kids enjoyed feeding the Llama


they also had pony rides but they were not interested and since their dad takes them riding that wasn’t a big deal for them. 


next we went into the old time days barn and toured it


the kids enjoyed seeing some of the things that are ancestors used .. Toby was fascinated by the old buggy, sled and esp this car that had a picture of the guy riding it.


Hailey liked the old style kitchen


After lots of walking and looking through the booth’s it was time to head to Wal-mart to stock up on junk food and then back home to spend some time playing. 


These grand parents are ready for a nap .. until next time …

It’s been a year!

This post is dedicated to 2 of my beloved Duke and Dixie.  It was a year ago today that you left us.  It has been a ruff year and there isn’t a day that goes by that I do not think of you.  You filled my heart with so much love and you are deeply missed.  RIP my precious babies.  Mama will always have a place in her heart for you.

Mexican Feast

Wow where has the time gone?  It’s been several weeks since I last posted!  I keep telling myself even though we are not on the road that I’m still going to try to post a few times a week on my blog, but let’s be honest!  It just hasn’t happened!!  Bad Pennie! 


Glenn treated us to a special lunch today.  A Mexican Feast!  Oh was it good, he made us home made Quesadillas!  He even had the music and per my request he seriated me with a beautiful Mexican song!  Thanks Glenn, the food was great and oh yeah, so was the singing. 


This summer we have spent pretty much most of time living in our home on wheels (for now) and our lives have mostly been enjoying the grand kids.  Although time with them has slowed down the past month since they have went back to school.  Mostly it’s weekend time with them now. 

Our winter plans are still to stay here in Illinois and help our son adjust to being a single parent.  His family is still in the adjustment period for everyone.  It’s great to see our son happy and smiling again He is slowly becoming the young man we raised him to be again.
