EMPTY NESTS ???

This is the first morning this week I'm not in a hurry to get things done after I get back home from dropping g-son. I don't have to be any where today so I can have that extra cup of tea and get a good start in the New Testament as I just finished the Old last week.
I also got to take a nice long walk on this nice sunny, mid 40's morning. The moon was still plainly visible in the western sky this morning.

 I am always surprised when all the leaves fall off the trees at all the nest that are up in the trees.

It's fun to think about all those little eyes that watched me this past season from these nest.

This one is at eye level in one of my pear trees.

I baked cakes all morning ,12 caramel, 2 chocolate, 3 pound cakes and 1 wine cake. I have taken several orders for Tuesday so it is shaping up to be a busier day than I had expected.
After lunch I swept off all the patios and porches. All the Bittersweet berries left over from our wreath making of a couple weeks ago will be swept out to grow into new vines for next season's wreath making.
As I look down over the road I wander what this view will look like in just a little while as a news report in the paper yesterday said the new bridge contractors could begin work as early as this coming Monday.
After I picked g-son up from school I stopped at Dollar General for a gallon of milk and with g-son along that milk cost me $16 instead of $4, haha !!!
When I got him settled in with something to eat I worked on some paperwork and weekly bill paying.
When hubbie got home g-son went with him to feed the cow and work on something in his workshop.
That boy sure loves his Pawpaw !!
I iced all my cakes and got things ready for market by 11:00.
I still have to put a hot pack on my arm to get to sleep at night but is getting better each day thankfully.
Thankful tonight for God's unconditional love for His children.
Good Night and God Bless.

When they do that bridge work, will you have to find another way to go??????

Glad you had a Mariyn Day today, or at least part of it... We all need days like that at times.

Now that our leaves are gone, there are many nests to be seen here too....

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend and Thanksgiving.
Hugs,
