This was the sunset Friday evening after many of the clouds from Hurricane Matthew had dissipated. Thank you all for your well wishes from the storm, for all of your private emails and mentions here on the blog. This side of the state was unharmed. We had a bit of a breezy day, very little rain, actually it was quite nice out. Our schools were canceled on Friday just in case, and Mr. 19 was home from his school in Orlando, it being canceled on Thursday and Friday. He ended up watching Little Buddy for me while I went to work on Friday. It worked out perfectly, especially because Little Buddy did his business in his diaper while he was being seen by his Speech Therapist, she took care of the clean up. This is a direct quote from Mr 19, "I am so glad she was here because last time I changed his diaper it took me 40 minutes to get it on right." He returns to Orlando this afternoon, it has been fun having him home for this unplanned visit.
Suddenly it is looking a little bit more like Autumn around here. I picked up some sunflowers at the grocery store last week, they are so fun to see on my table. I cleaned and decorated for Halloween yesterday. Fun life I have I know, Saturdays are catch up days for me at home, all boring work that has to be done. I am working on Little Buddy's costume for Halloween, he is going to be Chase from Paw Patrol.
Yesterday I looked outside and saw this amazing event. Leaves turning colors! This does not usually happen until December down here in Florida, and even then the colors are usually very muted. I was so excited I risked being eaten alive by mosquitoes this morning to get this photo.
My wonderful sister Claudia wrote an amazing post about one of our candidates yesterday. After all that has transpired this past weekend it was more than time these things were said. Once again she is my hero for speaking her mind, for not shying away from the reality of the situation, and for not being afraid to speak her mind and potentially lose followers.
I love this little boy of mine so much. He deserves a world were everyone is respected and treated fairly. He put together a 24 piece puzzle all by himself yesterday. I was so proud of him. He went potty twice on the potty, and woke up this morning, crawled up into my Grandmother's rocker and read some books. Little B is my hero, too!
