SAYING GOODBYE TO THE SUMMER

Well, I guess it's official. The Summer is over and Fall is here, so last night we decided to go out to eat one more time at the Cabana on the Ohio River. It's a outdoor restaurant not too far from our home that is only opened from April until the end of September. It was an absolute beautiful night to eat outside last night and we had a pretty sunset over the river(that's the hills of Kentucky in the photo). I like Fall but am a little bummed that Summer is over.

So goodbye fake lit up palm trees(looks like the green tree's lights burned out) until next Spring and hello Fall. I changed my blog to look a little more Fall like. Yea, I didn't want to do it and you will probably start to see beach scenes again by February when I start thinking about warm weather. Hope everyone has a wonderful first day of Autumn.
It seems Maddie approves of Grandma's new bra. I put out my clothes that I was going to wear today and I came in my room to find Maddie trying on my new "PINK" bra while watching Mickey Mouse. She didn't quite have it on right but hey it looks pretty any way you wear it. Look at the pretty pink lace on the sides. She also took my Kabuki brush that I put my Bare Minerals makeup on with and hid it. She's in a hiding phase right now, she takes things and hides them all over the house. Those Kabuki brushes are expensive so I was happy when I found it this afternoon. Silly little girl! LOL
And I went to see this movie this weekend and I loved it. It was funny and touching at the same time. This movie is about a dentist who has no people skills, in fact people bug him and then he dies unexpectedly and is revived and is suddenly able to see ghosts. All of the ghosts have some unfinished business here on earth and they want him to help them so they can move on. But Greg Kinnear's character is the ghost who wants the most from him. Anyway I don't want to spoil the rest for you but I really liked this movie and I liked the British actor, Ricky Gervais also. I know movies are a matter of taste but this is a fun one. Have a great Monday and first day of Autumn!

Ha! I think it's cute that Maddie knows where it goes, even if not quite how to put it on.

Happy Fall!

It's been years but I still remember when my oldest daughter hid my keys in the mail slot and wasn't talking yet, I missed an entire day of work over that one! When the mail arrived that day, voila! There were the keys. Cute photos.

Hi, Joan!
Coincidentally, after reading your post about Cabana on the River and looking up some info on it, I happened to go over to the video store in Delhi~ a boy that works there mentioned that he had come from his grandma's land, out on the river in Fernbank.
I said, "oh, you must know all about Cabana!" and he said it was closed already, had been closed since the windstorm.
Is that true?

I love the fake palms lol...they look so festive! Yes, fall is here (till summer returns which could be any minute) and the wind is blowing and it's cool out...Maddie is a doll baby no matter what she's doing! And I can't wait for Ghost Town...
hugs
