Woke up with a severe case of heartburn this morning and g-son's bad mood  didn't help matters at all.
It's Friday and he was definitely his illy pilly self as I scurried him off to school with protest of just "feeling sick all over" !!
I had planned on going over to his school for a little program they were having after lunch but after the fuss he put up wanting to stay here this morning I decided maybe I shouldn't tempt him with maybe getting to come home early today.
I baked cakes all morning, 12 caramel, 2chocolate, 3 coconut, 4 pound cakes, and a wine cake. I have several orders for tomorrow.
After lunch d-in-love called and asked me to pick up g-son today as other g-ma had to work later than usual.  I just hope he's in a better mood!!
The sun is shining beautifully outside this afternoon after a cloudy morning but it is breezy making it cool.
While g-son ate mac and cheese with cookies for dessert I ordered some more cake boxes which will hopefully get here before I run out.
#1 son came after g-son just as daughter came by to pick up some baking supplies I picked up for her yesterday.
After hubbie got home we rested while we watched the news. Both of us are feeling a bit under the weather today. I'm hoping we are just tired after this very busy week we've had.
After supper and chores I stated icing cakes and finished about 10:45,whew !!!  I'm glad this level of business doesn't last too long !!
As I looked around this evening while I was outside I felt like I am missing my favorite season this year for some reason. I just haven't had the time this year to enjoy the changing season yet. This has always been a very busy time for us around here, in farming it is harvest time, and my business is always busier during leaf season so what is making me feel like this year is different and slipping by me I can't quite pinpoint. I am going to make a point to slow down in the coming week and take more pictures and watch more sunsets. 
I am very grateful tonight for a loving ,caring God to give all my burdens to each day and I strive to please Him in all that I do.
Good Night  and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, I too feel as if I'm missing the season.. Life seems so busy these days!

We have had a cloudy, cool week with no sunshine much at all. We're supposed to get some sun tomorrow. Hope so!!!!

Grandson is probably just tired when it comes to Fridays... I'm sure he'll be fine having a weekend with no school...

Hope you have a good weekend/week.

Time has just been rushing by this year. Maybe we should all just take some time off from life and just relax. Let's let God take over. God bless.
