This week (unfortunately) our Tuesday Tidbits has become Thursday Tidbits…and thank you to those who sent private messages asking if we are alive! We are alive, but I have been under the weather for the last week. Normally, things don’t slow me down much but the last few days have been about getting my actual work done and crashing on the sofa. Nothing more. However, things are much better and I’m back among the living! Thank goodness!

While we weren’t able to accomplish much this week, Trent was able to do some winter prep (clean gutters, trim trees, etc). He wanted to blow out the irrigation system but I begged him not to. I love to keep our grass green for as long as possible. It sounds silly, but it makes fall feel longer to me.

I, on the other hand, accomplished absolutely nothing. I have photographic evidence.

The view from our master bed is lovely (and I’m grateful for that), but I really don’t like to be there during the day.

Also thankful for our amazing bathroom because I took no less than 2 baths each day. Naturally, Niles would inspect things before and after.

And I enjoyed the view from each sofa (because it’s just plain boring to sit on the same sofa for hours on end).

Just before this catastrophe hit, we did have a small group from church over one evening and I decided to put together a simple fall’ish table.

We have a lot to get done in the next couple of weeks (I have a list of “Must-Get-Done-Before-Thanksgiving items). Everything from our exterior third porch door to hooking up the whole house humidifier…and still more paint touch-ups.

Sorry again for the quiet few days, but life is back to normal! As always, thanks for following along and have a wonderful week/weekend!

    I see Niles there while you are watching tv. He should be up on your lap comforting you. πŸ™‚
