This is the first time I have picked up my laptop today. I didn't even check email this morning, unheard of for me. God has truly blessed us with a mild fall, sunny and mostly warm. So Hubby and I have grabbed every minute we can to ride.
Yesterday was a putter around the house kind of day, I finished the snowman hat, oh my goodness is that one absolutely precious! Made my boys a huge batch of chicken jerky treats. Did several loads of laundry. And even found time to take a nap after having lunch with my sweet Hubby.

The evening ended with some quality time with my son. That was such a perfect way to wrap up the day. Although I was a bit stunned to discover my other three boys had not decided to leave me much room to climb into bed as the day had turned into late night.

I thought for certain that our day of 'savings' was over as we headed to drop our Escape off for an oil change and tire rotation. Hubby remembered receiving a coupon in email so he grabbed that. Wow, this lucky day did not want to end, it saved us a full 50% off auto work.
We ran into my baby sister and her hubby and visited for a bit (even saw another sisters ex-husband - it's been 10 years, we let it stay that way). They both looked great and seemed so happy and relaxed. I know things have been crazy for them for a while, and it was good to see them looking happy!
Hubby and I took off to chase the colors of fall. And we found so many! We followed the Great River Road and decided to explore Alton, Illinois this time. Usually we simply pass by, today we made the right. It is a beautiful , the hills are steep and the views are spectacular!

Home was about 45 minutes away and so was sunset.
We pulled up our leaf covered drive a few minutes before the sun dipped below the horizon. Sure we should have finished cleaning up the house, packing for our trip, raking leaves and mowing the grass. But we would have missed so many amazingly, wonderful memories... I'll take the memories any day. Life is simply too short!
