Fall Has Arrived!

Thanks Missie for this beautiful tag. Here is the link to her wonderful journal. Missie's Magical Creations

The weather here has been a little chilly. This morning I woke up to 43 degrees. When I let the dog out at 4:30 this morning I couldn't believe how cold it was. I brought in my plants that were on the back deck last night. I was afraid they might die from the cold. I had my cilantro, chives, dill and spider plants on the deck.

Another beautiful tag from Missie.

I am going on my fifth week of driving my neighbor. I put the price down to $100.00 a week since he is starting to make comments about the money. I just want to claify a comment that someone left in  my journal. I drive his car and he puts gas in it. It would not be worth it for me to drive my vehicle because it would cost about $50.00 every 2 days to drive him. I didn't want to use my vehicle because it is older and bigger. I think I might only be driving him for another week or so. He decided he wanted to get another roommate who could drive him to work and they could live at his place for free. I am not sure if it is going to work out but that is ok for me. I have not been able to go to any of my daughter's volleyball games and I am ready to stop driving him. 

Well, I have to get going. I have to leave in about an hour to drive all the way to his work and pick him up. I have only done this twice so far. Take Care everyone.

didn't know it was his car and gas. glad you clarified that. i think the 100.00 is fine for your time, but hopefully you get your time back to go to your kids games. I'm hoping my Rebecca is interested in either soccer or volleyball when she goes to school. i would love to be a mom who gets to go to her childs games.  have a nice day. ((((hugs))))

You have gone more then out of your way for this nieghbor. I hope he appreciates all that you have had to give up to accomedate his schedule. It sounds like the roommate idea wil benifit all.

Your weather sounds like ours. Though it was a beautiful fall weather day here in southern Maine today. but the nights are getting much cooler. The leaves on my property are already falling. I need to get the leaf blower out again.

Have a wonderful night with your family.
Toodles,
Tia
