Hello! I’m still alive!
I thought that I ought to give you an update on our lives before somebody sent a search and rescue crew. As I always say at the end of the month, work gets crazy…but considering how much travelling I did in September, I had a lot of catching up to do. Paying bills and buying groceries always has to take priority over blogging…but anyway, let’s move on to coffee this morning.

If we were meeting for coffee this morning, I’d thank you for the prayers after our last cup of coffee. Unfortunately, the Mister’s uncle passed away the day after my post. We miss him a lot, but he had been sick for a long time, so in some ways, it’s a good thing that he’s no longer suffering. However, that doesn’t diminish the loss the family is feeling.

If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, then you’d see that it’s raining outside. The gray, drizzly all day kind of rain that means winter is coming. Boo. When it rains like this where I live, people forget how to drive. It’s amazing how many multi-car pile-ups I’ve seen in the last 24 hours. It makes me want to stay home in bed with a good book and a cup of coffee.

If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, I’d want to know if you have your house decorated for fall? I haven’t started yet, but I’m thinking I should because it will be time to break the Christmas decorations out before we know it. At the very least, I guess I should put some pumpkins on the front porch and buy some Halloween candy.

If we were really meeting for coffee, then I’d share Holly’s blog, Eight Six Eleven, because I’m having fun getting to know her better. Holly and I were paired up in a snail mail challenge. I love the idea of making new friends, and who doesn’t love getting happy mail? So far, I think we’re a match made in heaven. After all, teal was one of her wedding colors and she loves shoes. =D

Okay, I have to get back to the daily grind here in the office, but thanks for hanging in there with me on the spotty blogging the last few months. Catch you for coffee next week? Have a great Tuesday!
