A friend of mine told me that she's been reading my blog, but that I'm not really talking about myself. I don't think she meant that as a good thing..... because in my profile, I said that you'd get to know me better by reading my blog. I do think that personalities come through in what they talk about; but I guess it's easier for me if an issue comes up that I respond to. You know, like "journalling".... as opposed to simply talking about myself. That seems a little odd. :)

So, tonight is Mom's Game Night, for our homeschool group. We meet at Lisa's and play games. We play Pictionary if we get enough people... which is always a riot!! I love guessing but I'm not good at drawing. I get too excited and then draw too quickly!! My animals always look like some kind of alien cows. But, we have a great time, anyway! Lisa always bakes a goodie and I try to, too. I was going to take Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars, but I figured people will have pumpkin pie, probably, on Thanksgiving, which is only three days, I'll wait on the pumpkin thing. Maybe I'll take that next time. I made Grandma Ginney's Brownies this time! (That's Wayne's, "Grandma Ginney".) When I make those Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars, though, I'll share the recipe here!! They are wonderful!

Oooo.....I need to make Placecards for Thanksgiving dinner, too! Tomorrow? Maybe. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day, though! Quinn has last week's art class to make up in the afternoon...that means a drive to W. Salem. Gives me about an hour or so of free time, though, so maybe I'll get some shopping in. (Shhh!! Don't tell the Buy Local crowd!!) :) No, I don't profess to only Buy Local. But, I definitely see the benefit of it.... especially for our lovely, little downtown that we have!!! Definitely worth striving towards. But, I digress.
After art class we'll come right back and go to the Children's Art Fair at the library. Quinn isn't participating.... I found out about it too late for him to be able to sign up.... but we have a few friends from our homeschool group who are!! So, we're going to see all the goodies that they've made and show our support. After that, we'll probably have our food order pick-up and then off to music practice! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it all! Not really. I actually find when I have those kinds of days ahead of me, I'm energized by the thought of it. But, only a couple of days of that and then I like to be home and get recentered.

OK.... need to get ready to go to Lisa's! Ciao!

Well see, now I know a little more about you. :)

I read about your friends across the street. Sorry to hear of such a thing. Life is really bizziare sometimes.

I would have thought that Salem was pretty darn local in terms of shopping.

Thanks for the comment, Jana. Yes, this story about our friends is truly "stranger than fiction". I hope she has a much better year this coming year!!

We're enjoying the citrus immensely! Thank you so much!!!
