The Blustery Day

I've been a little absent from the blog, as the boys and I have been spending time with their great-grandma who visited from Arizona this last week.

great-grandma here with my Daddio

Stinky really adored her, asking when we would visit her each morning. She snuggled Rotten, and praised both boys until I thought they might float away with their newly inflated egos. It was wonderful to have her here, and she will be missed now that she's in Arizona again, though I'm sure the warm weather there is more to her taste.

Our gloomy Western Washington winter is upon us. Our first big windstorms of the year are hitting us, making me grateful for these for walls, and the cheerful yellow we've painted on them. It's a nice contrast to the gray outside. Today is especially blustery and I've declared it a movie and sweatpants day, with a big pot of Cincinnati chili to warm us tonight-crossing our fingers that the power stays on.

Lots of projects are in the works- gifts for Christmas, furniture re-purposing, and a no-budget bedroom makeover for WBH and I. I'm really excited for all of it, but it has to be done in spurts, thanks to Stinky and Rotten. Looking forward to sharing those with you, and the sweet suit picture I promised last week.

I hope your week is going well- how are you dealing with the fall weather?

Sweet pic. Sounds like a nice visit. It has turned nasty and windy and rainy out here in PA- but I'm just thankful it's not snow! I miss having leaves on the trees. Those projects sound interesting- can't wait to see!

It doesn't take much to remind us to be grateful for a warm home does it? Your family has beautiful skin... i know right, randomn but it's true. Hugs. tammy

Love those praising grandparents.

Don't love those W WA winters as much.
