The Last Blooms

Fall is always a sad-happy time for me...I love the change in temperature and the crisp feeling I get when going for my walks, but I'm sad to see the flowers die and the earth turn its' brown stage of color. So, here's two of my favorite flowers!

The pretty purple flower Les bought after seeing it in service. We love it! It is so dainty and colorful with its' delicate while laced edges.

The other is an African Violet that I purchased and have not tried to nuture. It blooms faithfully for me, perhaps begging for one more season.

I took pictures of some other remaining flowers, but they looked worse than they really are! Anyway, enjoy my last summer blooms!

Fall is in the Air!

Here I am trying to "fallize" my living room. I bought a few pumpkins (mantle) and some fall flowers ( which I'm proud of my arrangement--it looks orange, but it's really red) and of course put out my reliable red apples. It looks cute, but no comparison to my daughters' fall theme.

A Night At The Symphony

Les and I decided to go to the symphony for a little culture. I was mentioning that we might go to Danielle and she said they already had tickets! Since they were going, that made the evening more fun. It was spectacular! Nikolaas Kende is an unbelievable pianist! What a performance!After hearing him perform, we enjoyed meeting Danielle & Mike at Cheddar's for some refreshments. What a nice evening!!!

6th Month Anniversary

Well, here it is 6 months of marital bliss! We have had lots of fun and lots of's a rewarding challenge.
Our dinner was going to be at Diamond Back's, but they were closed due to the Labor Day Holiday, so we went to 135 Prime or is it Prime 135? Anyway, we had a very nice dinner of wine, New York Strip steak , garlic mashed potatoes and delicious salad. Oh, and wonderful olive bread.

After dinner we came home and opened presents. Les bought me a pretty diamond ankle bracelet--unfortunately it was a little small so he's getting that taken care of today. A nice surprise!!! My gift to him was a Cross ballpoint pen (not pictured). It's really pretty but not quite the equal...although he really liked it.

We sat on the patio under the stars and listened to music...and reflected!
It was a very nice evening and a special memory!
