Autumn Colours

We are already in October and the leaves have turned to a beautiful array of fall colours. We went to Moncton last weekend and it was a very colourful trip. The red leaves, this year, are very vivid and they seem to peek through all the other gold, orange, and green leaves, making it just a beautiful arrangement.

On Sunday, we celebrates DH's cousin's 80th birthday, then on Monday, we celebrated DH's mother's 89th birthday. Both were very nice parties but it is hard to watch your weight at functions like that.

We had a little scare last week. DH felt a pressure in his chest and his having had heart problems, the doctors did not take any chances. He was admitted to the hospital and put through stress tests and blood tests. He was given a clean bill of health, and much to his pleasure, he was released from the hospital.

Between our trips out of town and DH's visit to the hospital, plus winterizing our RV and getting our outside property ready for winter, I have not had time to blog or to do any quilting. I am hoping to be able to get to my quilting this afternoon.

We are getting ready for a visit from DD and her DH. They are going to be here on my DH's birthday which is going to be really nice. We have not seen them for a long time, but then, her DH is very busy at work and we do understand their situation. We do keep in touch by phone and e-mails, probably more so than when they lived close by. Looking forward to seeing them again.

Have a wonderful weekend and a great week everyone!

I'm glad to hear that Dad was okay. It's always better to be safe than sorry.

I'm looking forward to our visit too :o) I've already started packing a bag with things I need to bring to you. LOL!

Nice to read blog from you again. it's been a long time between blogs. Glad you husband is ok.

Your fall leaf colors make me jealous! I grew up in western NY State where the fall colors are wonderful. Maryland leaf colors are boring by comparison and come much later in the fall. Leaves are still green here.
