Wasn't a pretty day but.....

It Surely wasn't a pretty day out today but the scenic lake has some beautiful shots. Sorry they are scrambled everywhere.

Today was definitely a day to stay in but I knew I wanted to take a ride and get a few pics since I haven't been for a ride in awhile. When you don't feel good you don't want to do a thing.

During the day I watched the Steeler vs. Cleveland Browns game and made some homemade beef vegetable soup. I'm saving my serving for tomorrow. I just know it will taste better then. We had pizza for the game so that's enough until tomorrow.

Sure glad tomorrow will be a bit sunny. It's going down to 30 degrees so after that we are having our Indian summer. Four days of 60 degree they tell us. It's time to finish up the outdoor yard clean-up for winter.

Well, not much more to post....

Enjoy the pics and everyone have a good evening.

Hugs and smiles,

Great soup recipe for fall

How's everyone been doing? The weather here is sure chillin'. I have to step it up and get outside for some clean-up. Leaves and other things are blowing in to the yard.

Still haven't been feeling up to par. I had the breathing test and it wasn't good so now I have to inhale SPIRIVA once a day.
My daughter finally graduated as a Massage Therapist a few weeks ago with high honors. She's such a trip. WHen it was her turn to go up and receive her diploma, their angle was in the opposite directions for a picture so I yelled out "this way Ash!, and you'll never guess what she did.......she yelled back..."What Ma!" The whole audience laughed and the Dean laughed saying "she really wants that picture doesn't she, lol." Here's a few pics. She hates her picture taken.

The last photo is where everyone is laughing...............

My son and his girlfriend and I took her to Red Lobster for dinner afterward. She's glad school is over, now the fun begins....a job. She wants to start out on her own but I told her to work for someone first to get some experience together and then go one by herself.

Came across this recipe and thought I would post it....It's from Lots of great recipes on there.

This recipe is awesome. Now that the weather is getting chilly, I love to eat soup. This recipe is a keeper.

I'm hoping to get out and take some local picts of the area and the color changing. This weekend is supposed to be ok so maybe then I can do that.

Well not much more happenin. I hope you all have a great rest of the week.

Smiles and hugs,
