That’s southern talk for, Fall has arrived here. It has finally turned off chilly. One night we finally got to build a fire out in our firepit and roast some marshmallows. Then, it started sprinkling.
We had or Fall break from school last week. We grabbed our gear and were off to see Dad. He did have to work while we were there, but it helped him with us just being there with him. He is getting to the point to where he is getting depressed and can’t sleep. That is a cue that it is time for him to come home. We weren’t suppose to leave until Tuesday because Jossie and Caroline had drs appts and then she called me and said she had her days mixed up and that they weren’t until the next week. Soooo…..that meant we were free to leave. I told Dallas to grab his gear and lets go. We hit the road and surprised Dad by sitting in his living room when he got home. I turned my GPS off so he would have no idea. It lifted his spirit so much. He was surprised and happy.
While we were there, I made him some keto recipes. He is on the keto diet and I told him I would try some things, but there are just some things I don’t have the will power to give up some things.
I made some Cauliflower mashed potatoes, and some spaghetti substituting with spaghetti squash and Cauliflower fried rice.
It was time for us to go and he was crushed. He begged us to stay one more day and wanted Dallas to miss a day of school. However, he knows I’m a stickler for not missing school and Jossie had to work that evening so I needed to be here to watch the kids. I told him I would come back another weekend. Then he will be coming home on weekends again. We just have to be patient.
I have been freezing my tooshie off at some ballgames, especially last night. It was cold and drizzling rain.
We have made it to the Playoffs this year and round one starts next Friday night. They travel to Memphis.
We finally got school pics back. Boy, you blink and they grow up…
We had Grab Your Granny day again one day. Some times you do what a G-Maw has to do….
We got to take them to a Pumpkin patch…..
I so enjoy my times with my grandbabies. Poppie gets a little jealous sometimes cause he is not here, but trust me, he will make up for lost times when he gets home. Atleigh loves hanging out with me. She has to be where I am and do what I’m doing. So, I get her in the kitchen alot with me. I put her on a stool and she stands there and watches me or helps me. One day she helped me put up peppers. Of course, there were bite marks in every one. She is still a great sissy and takes care of sissy. Caroline has turned two months old. She does have colic though and we struggle through it sometimes. Dakota gets really nervous and stresses. I have to remind him that he had it too when he was her age and I had to grit my teeth and bear it for 4 hrs every night like clock work. He said he didn’t know how I did it. He is so thankful that Jossie is a patient mother. When she is not colicky, she is very alert and now wants to sit up and look around. She loves for me to sing to her. She still loves to be swaddled. Her hands and feet are always cold. She is very cuddly and loves to be cuddled. Bless her. Here lately, she has been watching Walker Texas Ranger. I think she has a crush on him already. Atleigh did too.
She has made claim to my rocking chair. I rocked her daddy in this chair 20 years ago. If I get in it, she grabs my hand and says, “GET!” She hops in it and thinks its funny. She is teasing me.
Never wake a sleeping baby. This swing has been a life saver, especially during the colic stage.
We’re still getting our hunting on. We are seeing alot when we are hunting, it’s just that they want come within bow range. Very disappointing. It’s like they are outsmarting us at this point. This weekend is Juvenile gun hunt and Dakota is going to take Dallas. Dallas has not hunted as much as Dakota has growing up, and is not as experienced, so we feel comfortable with him hunting with someone else. When he gets more experienced, we will let him hunt alone in a blind.
He is wanting to sell his crossbow and get a compound bow like brother and dad. We have all been target practicing.
I think the frost has gotten my tomato plants. They may still put off a few since there are some green ones on there but they are probably done. I did get 8 more quarts of tomatoes for recipes.
Yes, I had to do G-Maw Shark for Atleigh. I told you, you do what you gotta do. lol
Hope you enjoyed reading my ramblings. Have a great day.
