Update of our day-
Family and friends,
We spent several hours with Tina this afternoon and I am happy to be able to report that she is much improved and will probably be able to come home tomorrow. And if so, she and Alli will most likely stay here with us for a couple of days. .. to the weekend, anyway. I'm sooo relieved that she has done this well!
We stayed until Alli and her girlfriend came up, after school...and they were to stay for awhile.( tho, not too late on this school night) This friend is with Alli while Tina is in the hospital-and Alli drives herself and her friend to school!
When we left-
Charles and I decided to get dinner out-as it was already late. We decided to eat at 'Cracker Barrel.' I like going there- not just for the good country style food but also for the neat things they have in the shop! I like to look and shop, especially during the holiday seasons...fall thru Christmas! I bought a few things to add to my Halloween guys!
(A couple of them are for my 2 girls)
I like the vintage-paper-mache' look pumpkin head boy and girl!
They're all cute-cute-cute! ;) AND they were on sale for cheap!
It was just before sunset as we made our way back home. I had Charles pull over a few times so as to try and capture the beautiful evening sky...before-during and after the sunset! Our road home takes us south and to my right was this glorious light show that claimed my full attention! And at my request we got off the express-way and turned west in search of a better view.
I love every moment of it...the brilliance as the sun falls beyond the horizon- the way the dark clouds have the red and gold and silver outlines...the way the sun-as we travel over the twists and turns of the road- keeps playing a peek-a-boo game until finally the big gold ball falls beyond our view! I love the way the whole sky is then turned every pastel shade of pink and blue and purple and gold and silver... Not just the western sky, where the sun finally sets- but the whole sky has these soft, pastel, colors!
This feels like a magical time to me and I can't think of anything that brings me more pleasure than the sunset hour!

Not to be out done...
LOOK at this full moon that came up just as the spectacular show to the west was ending!
Perfect ending to this day!
