Tomorrow is our anniversary, so after we get the kids done at softball, band, and football, they are going to stay the weekend with grandma and grandpa and we are going to get in the car and drive. Thought maybe we would head up towards Michigan.

Our plans are somewhat melancholy. Sat.(Oct.7) is the 7th year passing date of my son Jymm.Kiersten is coming home from college for the weekend with he boyfriend.We will all go to the cemetary and decorate his grave for Halloween.Laugh and cry,sharing memories good and bad.Then we will come home and I'll make baked ziti, garlic bread, antipasti salad and chocolate cheese cake for dessert (some of Jymm's favorites) to celebrate his life.We'll play a cassette we have of him playing his guitar and singing,candles will be lit and we'll all wish he could be here physically playing his guitar and singing instead of memorex.Wishing you all lots of happy memory making days this weekend.Love and energy, Vicki

Saturday my wife is bringing out daughter to a birthday party where they will go see an Elmo show (my daughter calls him lala ) so I will have the house to myself. I think I will surprise DW by painting the downstairs which is going to be the play room. She has been dying to have it painted for a while so that should be a nice surprise for her.

Sunday I am not sure what we are doing, but I hope it involved eating something yummy.

I have yet to go apple picking. Each weekend we wanted to go, something came up. So, I hope we get apples this weekend, and pumpkins. Probably mow the lawn for the last time and then put the mower away for the winter. Going to the dump with hazzardous waste (old monitor, tv, etc.), probably cut back some of my perennials...and the usual stuff like grocery shopping, laundry. Think I'll go buy some Halloween decorations and get the front porch looking festive

Saturday- RED RIVER SHOOTOUT (OU/Texas game)

The rest of the weekend, probably watch more football and walk around the city to shoot some pictures. We lost our hard drive which had 5 years worth of pictures in it, so I am going try to reshoot some and start over.

GB, that's a wonderful surprise for your wife! AND, you get to avoid a couple hours of listening to Elmo (I know, I know, I better learn to like him fast)!

Vicki, sending you hugs.

Here, I am hoping that DH is able to keep his promise of taking our daughter for the afternoon one day and letting me clean. I can deal with clutter and dust to a point and then I freak out. And I'm freaking! Other than that, there's not much planned. If the weather's good and we have time I'd like to go to the botanical gardens. We haven't been there since the summer so I'm anxious to see what all they've planted for the fall. Sofie loves the butterfly house they have there, too.

workin' a double on saturday, then going home and gonna thatch and break the soil under the apple tree (about a 30 foot diameter) and spread some grass seed. also, since it's a pain to try to cut the grass against one side of the foundation of the house, i'm gonna put down a weed barrier and cover it with crushed limestone. a few cu. yds should do it.

not sure about sunday. recent posts have me thinking of a trip to new hope, pa. http://www.experiencebuckscounty.com/new-hope.html
yes, it's in my county.

or maybe to an octoberfest, or harvest festival at an orchard. have to read tonight's newspaper.

last sunday was really cool. we went to a huge chusok festival (korean thanksgiving). it was fun, but next year i'm bringing a translator.
