Time to make the donuts..........

do you ever feel like that old Dunkin Donuts commercial?? i've really been feeling in a rut lately. not sure why.

the creativity is flowing..............i think it must be the repetition of paperwork from my work. LOL

so anywho! another busy week in the Grider house. LOL Dalton has been helping dad with his new deer hut. Youth hunting season is this weekend. Dalton is so excited he nearly passes out just thinking about it!

My aunt Sue has been visiting from Moberly this week. Got to spend some time with her on friday night and also on Saturday evening.Always fun to see her and swap the flea market finds we pick up for each other between visits!

Hubby took me out for lunch and shopping on Saturday. Yay me!! then we went out to the shooting range so we could fire a few rounds out of the pistol. Yours truly kept all 8 of her rounds on the target! LOL

Finishing up some DT products for Scrapbook Doodle! There were a ton of yummy goodies to use this month! I'll post pics of some of there here as soon as i can!

My town is grouping together in an effort to save our old grist mill. it looks pretty dilapidated on the outside, but the inside looks just like the day they closed the doors. The foundation has already been secured. The local bank is donating the money to order new windows. A local sawmill has offered the lumber for fixing the outside. A fundraiser was held to raise money for additional costs. Here are a few pics ..........a little over 3600.00 was raised!!

Fall is in the air...........

The days are getting shorter. The nights are getting cooler. The leaves are starting to turn, and THIS decided to make a web on the porch while we were at the lake cabin! ewwwwww! makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.

The guys went on their hunting trip to wyoming........so mom and i along with Dalton escaped to the lake for a few days early in the month. We did some shopping, lots of eating out and went bowling. Yes bowling. Ask mom how to do it. (although you might find that she does things a little backwards. her pretty red ball tried to bowl over my shoes while i was sitting behind her!)

My FIL continues to have some heart problems and is still in the hospital. He is on antibiotics to get rid of the infection and we are hoping it will be gone by monday. Monday or Tuesday they will be putting a new pacemaker/defibulator in for him. We all have our fingers crossed that there are not any complications this time.

I got a few fun pics of Dalton............here's one to share.

He is growing way to fast!!

Lot's of fun projects in the making for the November reveal at Scrapbook Doodle. We are working with Cosmo Cricket Papers and embellishments. There is still time to try out for a Guest Designer spot.......so get on over! There is also a Design Team Call to add new members to the group! Don't miss out, get your projects in!

Gotta run!! Today is my Daddy's birthday and we are having a party!!!
