A Special Birthday


Last Saturday evening Mr. Dollycas and I, his siblings and their spouses took his mother out to dinner to celebrate her 80th birthday. The entire restaurant joined in to sing Happy Birthday and before she blew out her candle, she whispered how about 80 more? That sounded good to all of us. She is an amazing woman and we are all blessed to have her in our lives. 4 children, 4 more by marriage, 11 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren and she is always there for every one of us. We love you, Mom!!!

Creepy Halloween!

I have beautiful delightful grandchildren most of the year.
Halloween last weekend brought out their creepy side.

Last week Winter gave us a rude awakening, Autumn hadn’t even lasted a week.
At least this polar bear at the nearby zoo had fun.

I also had to replace a computer mouse that wouldn’t charge which took me away from the computer. I used some of the time off to clean and organize my closet. My son found a loaner mouse to use later until my new one arrived from Amazon the next day.

A trip to the optometrist yesterday was interesting. He told me my brown eyes were changing to green. I had no idea that could happen.  He also says my left eye is smaller than my right.  My eyes were dilated during the exam so I didn’t pick out any new glasses yet. Maybe next Saturday.

Happy Birthday!

Last Sunday the extended family gathered to celebrate the 1st Birthday of our grand-nephew Elijah. We always have fun when we get together. There were a couple of new babies in the group too and that is always fun.

This week was a busy week in blog world. I can’t believe I will start booking 2020 tours this week and how many dates are already filled on my 2020 Reading Calendar. I guess that also means it is time to start getting the Christmas Lists from the kids and grands too. I just need to get by Halloween first. I will have pictures to share of the grandchildren in their costumes next week.

I do want to share this announcement from Kensington Publishing

DOG VIDEOS

It was a pretty quiet week around here, reading, blogging and watching television. Chicago Wednesday on NBC was awesome this week.

My dog Oreo was pretty comical this week.

She rolls over to scratch her back and knocks my James Patterson and Harlan Coben books off the shelf. This has been a daily occurrence because the first time I rewarded her with a nice combing to get rid of whatever itch that may have been there. Her tail starts to wag as soon as I pick up the comb.

I also found this video on Facebook this week. The dog looks a bit like Oreo and Border Collies are super smart but Oreo is now 16 years old so she may be a little over the hill to learn new tricks like these.

I HATE FALL Y’ALL

I do hate Fall, mainly because I loooovvvvee Summer, but it is weeks like these that bring my hatred home. Temps start to drop, sunshine is spotty, and rain seems to last for days. I did see a little sun this week and it was warm for a couple of hours but Friday when Daughter #1 arrived to kidnap me for a haircut it was raining and with each minute that passed, the colder it got. She had more than a haircut so we were at the salon a couple of hours and by the time we left, I was wishing I had brought my winter coat. We did look fine when we left though. 

 

Then on Saturday, Daughter #2 and I headed to the last football games of the season and we layered up our clothing because baby it was cold outside and the wind was blowing. 

Yes, that is me. I was bundled up like that for Kaden’s game and then moved into the shelter (where this picture was taken) to watch Remington’s last two games. I couldn’t feel my feet for awhile I was so darn cold. 

Kaden’s team did great again and won 36 – 0 to remain undefeated for the season. Remi’s team also did fantastic and the kids picked up some skills to build on for next year. They all had so much energy and didn’t seem to be bothered by the cold at all.  The boys did come home with us, so their mom could sleep after working the overnight shift. I am still thawing out as I type this. 

Mr. Dollycas took this picture.

Last Sunday before all the blustery weather hit. Natalie was with us and we went to a pancake breakfast put on by the fire station in our home town where my father was chief until he passed away in 1988. We were joined by Daughter #1 and Remi. We have not attended the breakfast in many years. It was heartwarming to see a dedication to my dad as soon as we walked in the door and viewed the history in pictures in the meeting room with the grandchildren. We also ran into some wonderful people we don’t see much anymore since we moved out of town. It was good to catch up even for a few minutes. I also received a Mary Baker hug and those are priceless.

Looking for Bloggers!

This week I was kept busy reading, reviewing, and working on several new blog tours. I have also been looking for new bloggers to join the Great Escapes Book Tour team. Our main focus is cozy mysteries but we tour other genres too! If you know of anyone, please send them my way. Sign Up Here. and I will send you more details.

My evenings were spent reading and enjoying the new television season. Chicago Wednesdays are again my favorites.

Saturday found us on the road for another Kaden football game. Again the team played great 38 – 0. Thankfully we were only sprinkled on and the heavy rains held off until the afternoon. Remi had a home game and according to reports that team did well too. On our way home, we made a quick stop at the outlet mall so Mr. Dollycas could get some new Crocs, for work and play. I restrained myself and actually made no purchases. That has to be a first.

Later in the afternoon, Miss Natalie arrived for a sleepover. She loves to clean so she is my kind of girl. I am sure some movies will be watched and other girly fun will be had. I swear she has grown 6 inches since I saw her about a month ago.

What fun did you have last week?

FAMILY

Yesterday Mr. Dollycas, Daughter #2 and I attended the funeral for my brother-in-law’s mother. We hadn’t had much contact over the years but I will always remember Nancy with a big smile on her face. As the minister stated in his talk she liked to have fun and it showed on her face every time I saw her. He also talked about how losing a child changes a mother. Sadly, Nancy and I shared this. We both lost one of our adult sons way too soon. Totally different circumstances but sudden and unexpected. And it does change everything.

Nancy had been suffering from dementia of late and it was hard on her remaining sons and their families. She passed away surrounded by her family and through faith we know “Welcoming her home was her son Scott”.  I was moved by that thought and many of the minister’s words about the burdens we deal with here on earth and God’s plan for us. My faith has been shaky since I lost Kris, some day’s I am all in and other’s I am mad as hell. I am very thankful for those words I heard yesterday and while saying a final good-bye to Nancy I think I found a little piece of myself.

After the funeral, we traveled around the cemetery.  Stopping by my parent’s graves, “walking” down memory lane remembering all the people we knew that have been laid there to rest. We haven’t visited there much the last few years so we made sure to take Daughter #2 into the older section to point of out her great grandparents and other family graves. It made me realize all the stories I wish I had paid closer attention to and got me to thinking of all our relatives that are buried all around the state of Wisconsin and their stories. We usually think of these things when we lose someone. It is so important to pass down as many stories as we can before the holders of those stories are gone. Obituaries give us facts, ancestry websites have documents but unless family’s personal stories are documented/written down/recorded those stories will be lost. When we lost our house 5 years ago many of my pictures, heirlooms, and documents were accidentally left behind and it broke my heart. I am going to strive to do better at documenting what I can so if this planet survives global warming the generations that come beyond me will know what a wacky, crazy, wonderful, loving, amazing family they come from.  

p.s. The boys did play football yesterday too. We missed the game but am told, Kaden’s team won 38-0, and he sacked the quarterback twice, Remi’s team also won and he caught a touchdown pass. Next week we will be on the road again cheering on the 6th grade team.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

I am keeping the people affected by Tropical Storm Imelda in my thoughts and prayers.
Such devastation it will take be a long road to recovery. 

Football Road Trip! 

Yesterday we hit the road for a little football. Remi had a game at home and Kaden had a game away. We were the away bus 🙂 His warmups were at 8 and the game was at 9 so that meant up by 5:30 and out the door and on the road by 6:30. I am not a morning person so that was rough but so worth it. This is the one game a year where the kids play on a Division 3 college field. Again the Cardinals shutout their opponents 38 -0. Kaden again showed how he earned the nickname of Diesel.


What made the day extra special was catching up with an old friend. Suzy and I have been friends forever and we run into each other these games all the time and share a quick hello. Yesterday we were able to sit together and gab through the whole game while keeping close eyes to the boys on the field. We talked so much I forgot to get a picture of us together. I hope to remedy that next week. For now, I dug up this gem.

In the old days, we would play for hours, her house was my house, my house was her house. Wherever one of us was the other would soon follow. These days we can always pick up right where we left off and talk about our kids and grandkids and everything else under the sun. The game was soon over and we went our separate ways with “see you next week”. Thankfully it’s a home game so I can sleep in until at least 7.

Remi’s team won too at home. On our way home from Kaden’s game, we stopped by their house and brought Remi home with us too. So both boys are here until later today. By the time they go home I think I will take a nap like Daughter #2 and Mr. Dollycas did yesterday when we got home while I worked at the computer and kept track of the boys. Maybe I will find a nice quiet place to read instead. 🙂 A nap would just mess up my night owl sleep pattern.

Remembering Babs Hightower

Last Saturday evening heaven received another angel. Barbara Hightower of Babs Book Bistro left this earth much too soon. 

Because of this wonderful internet, I had the pleasure of “meeting” Babs several years ago because we both blog about books. We shared the love of promoting good books and doing all we could to help authors. We shared our ideas and our thoughts on many topics and while we never met in person I am blessed to have called her my friend. She was always there to listen and jump in to help in any way she could. Babs had a real energy about her that traveled the miles between us. Her blog was a daily stop for me and I looked forward each month to Babs Bookmark, an e-magazine she published covering all genres. I still can’t believe she is gone. She was a true treasure and she will be greatly missed. Please keep her family in your prayers.

Football Bonanza

It was a great weekend for Wisconsin Football! The Packers beat the Bears! The Badgers won 61 – Zip! Kaden’s 6th Grade Team won 34 -6! And Remi scored 2 Touchdowns in his 1st Grade game!

Kaden’s Game He is #87

 

Remi running in a touchdown!

In between the games, I had a nice visit with my mother-in-law while Mr. Dollycas mowed her lawn. It was great to see her and I truly needed a day away from this computer. I need to do that more often.
