Busy week......

This has been a crazy, busy week.  I've been working so hard to get things done for open house at Leola's.  My garage is bursting at the seams.  It will be nice to be able to park the car inside again.

Allison's cousin, Jenni, (my niece) & her 2 daughters have been here for a visit.  They live in Colorado so they don't get to see each other very often.  Thanks to their Moms, the kids have stayed really close & they were so excited to see each other.  Allison & Jenni have always been close & thanks to the Internet, it's much easier now.

We're finally having some cool, fall weather & it's a delight. Leaves are falling like crazy. It's been dry so not sure how pretty they'll be this year. We're lucky that we still haven't had a killing frost so flowers are still blooming and the garden is still producing. Had to take a drive through the countryside this morning so took a few pictures.

I've been making heating pads to sell at Leola's.  They are wonderful!  They're heated in the microwave & on cold winter nights they are the best.  When my g'kids stay with me & it's so cold, I love to heat them up & put them in their beds.  I've always thought that when they're old, they'll remember their G'ma Jan doing this.
There's so much work to be done & so little time.  I'll say it again, I need an assistant (or two).
