I hope you all are enjoying your fabulous fall season! It’s always such a short season, you have to act fast!
Michigan seems to be wanting to skip straight to winter this year. It’s been cold, cold, cold.
Today we have some sunshine, so the BG, Minate, and I are going to go for a “fall color tour” drive while Patience is at a birthday party this afternoon.
I wanted to share a little candy corn mouse that I got at a prim shop near my town. People are just so darned creative…I thought it was the cutest little thing!
Of course around our house Fall= collage Football for my hubs. The BG is a U of M alumni and I am a CMU alumni.
Although I am not a huge football fan I do like going to games. The BG went to a U of M home game a couple weeks ago, and next weekend I think we are going to go check out my team the Cippewas in Kalamazoo.
The Chips are doing great this year , they have only lost one game~!! They even beat Michigan State University again this year! Which,may I point out, even U of M didn’t accomplish!! HA SO THERE BG!!! hehehehe
Fire up Chips!
The big man on campus for U of M this year is freshman quarterback Tate Forcier.
The only reason I mention this is that I am always so happy when people pronounce French or French-Canadian names correctly. It gives me hope that when people hear them being pronounced correctly that they will get our last name right.
Our last name is Lussier and it is constantly being pronounced “loose-ear”. uggg. It is actually pronounced ” Lucy- A” I tried to get the BG to take my maiden name when we wed…it was so much easier. My name used to be Melissa Clear. Hard to pronounce that wrong! But he wasn’t going for that.
I’ve been working on the “garden girls” quilt the past couple days getting all the flowers and leaves basted.
While I happily baste along I have been listening to the last few “Outlander” books by Diana Gabaldon on C.D.
Her new book came out recently. I started to read it, but quickly realized that it had been so long since I read the last book that I couldn’t remember what had happened.
So while I get caught up on what Jamie and Claire were up to in the last three books during the day; at night I am finishing the Sookie Stackhouse books.
OH MY GOSH are these addicting or what???? I am flying through the series (you can read one a day) and am reading the last two. I highly reccomend them if you like paranormal mystery type books. OR if you have been enjoying the True Blood series on HBO, like we have.
