Wild weekend (not!)

OK, I swore I was NOT gonna be one of those bloggers who has a blog and posts once every six months whether they need to or not.But it was a pretty boring weekend here!
Saturday, John did borrow our friend Charlie's pressure washer and while he made his second of three trips to Home Depot to get the right J Channel to fix the siding that had pulled loose on the side of the house, I started pressure washing the driveway. (How was that for a run-on sentence!) I got about 1/2 of the driveway done while he was going/coming from Home Depot and fixing the siding, then he took over and I took care of some inside chores. He didn't get finished before darkness took over, so Sunday morning, I got out and finished the driveway and then sprayed off the rocks and waterfall at the pond. I had forgotten how pretty the rocks actually are! By then it was almost time for football, so we put the stuff away and got showers. We will keep the pressure washer for a while since the shed didn't get done. I don't have the upper body strength to do it, so that's John's baby all the way! And since yesterday was John's last day of vacation, he told me the only thing he was doing was changing TV channels. So that's what he did!

He went back to work today, so now I have to concentrate on getting the coasters completed for the Craft show Penny and I are doing on Dec 1 and 2. It's one of the largest Craft shows in the Tampa area and I'm really excited to be a part of it. I've been procrastinating on getting the coasters done all summer long, and now we're down to the wire so I have to get them done. I have money invested in the coasters and the schmutz to go on them, so I hope to get all of that back, plus some extra for my time. I've been promising various people pictures of the coasters, so I'm gonna show you one style. I'm doing "Christmas/Hannukah" themed hangings. The Hannukah ones all have Shalom on them and the Christmas ones have Peace, Noel, Joy, etc. This one is my favorite! It says Jingle and I hung bells from the bottom coaster for "Jingle Bells!" Pretty original, if I do say so myself!!
We finally have a touch of fall in the air. It's been in the upper 70's for highs and in the 60's for lows. Feels so nice to be able to turn the a/c off and open up the house. My friend Chris (Hey Chris!) up Chicago way was telling me that they may get snow sometime this week. I'm running around in shorts, and they may be getting snow!
