*A hundred balloons, which a friend recycled from a local event. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the door and saw them filling the room; Nathan was thrilled and Natalie was scared!*Fall. It was hot when we left, and we came home to a frost advisory. Brrr! Eric had to run out to rescue the final peppers and tomatoes.
*Since Eric had been home alone for a week and didn't join us in CO until the second weekend, he had plenty of "free" time to do as he wished. He not only did a good job on the landscaping in our yard (which was planned), he also really surprised me by cleaning the fridge (a job I do not enjoy) and extending the shelves of my overflowing basement pantry. To top it all off, he left dozens of sticky notes around the house saying things he appreciates about me. WOW! I can't say I'll be leaving again anytime soon, but these gestures made coming home even more enjoyable. Thanks, Eric!
I'll post soon about our trip . . .
