Before my brother-in-law left for his travels, he asked if I wanted to meet up at the Chinese Restaurant in town. My son joined us, and the food was delicious, as always. I usually get the chow mien, but I think next time I'll get the kung poa chicken dish my son ordered, it was so good.
My son made hot chocolate coffee one day, and it was surprisingly tasty. I had it with cinnamon raisin toast and butter.
One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.
When I drove to the creek, I thought I saw something in the brush ahead of me. It was three deer - a mama and her two fawns!
As I got closer, I got my camera out, slow and steady. One of the deer was sitting on the ground in the shade. I think it was the mother. I just sat there quietly and looked at her and took some pictures. She didn't move for a long while, and she was so calm and peaceful, just staring at me the whole time. She was the prettiest deer I had ever seen.
Then, after a few minutes, they trotted off. It was a special moment, indeed.
When my brother found this house, it had a good size front porch, and I was glad about that. I've had porches before, but they were always small and not much room at all. I found some white rocking chairs at Home Depot that I want to get sometime, but for now, a perfect orange pumpkin on the front porch suits me fine.
This bird is exotic looking and very pretty, but they are a nuisance at the same time. They peck at my tree, under the eaves, and even at the electrical post in the front of my house. I try to shoo them away, cause the last thing I need is to have the power cut off because of this mischievous bird. But they sure are funny to watch.
I baked a spaghetti squash, and it was a good, healthy meal.
My son brought me a couple Starbuck's iced coffees one day. I don't really care for iced coffee, so I heated mine up. Much better.
Jess' birthday is this week, and she usually celebrates her birthday all month haha, so I thought I'd throw in this picture for her to wish her a happy day. I love you Yummy.
The word LISTEN has the same letters as the word SILENT.
I hope pleasant surprises come to you this month of October.
