Well it's official Kirsten and Glenn are engaged and she has a beautiful ring! Last Sunday Glenn came up to the house to ask Steve for Kirsten's hand in marriage and funny thing.......she didn't know he came! I had to wait until Wednesday when he proposed to her, she said yes and they have planned a June wedding of 2011.
She already knows what dress she wants, so we have an appointment to look at the dress late November. I think we picked out a pair of silver shoes too, but we will see.
We had some excitement this week, it was sad excitement though. A arsonist kid age 23 started a fire at the Galleria Mall Roseville CA on Thursday. The fire spread and the roof at Macy's caved in and water and a mess ruined the mall and no one can go into the mall and shop. It's a huge mall in Placer County CA. Federal agents have been called in to investigate the Galleria Mall.
They said that all the stores will have to salvage off their inventory and it be sold and also the people that work there are without jobs. That's a lot of people. It's devastating to our area.
I had been at the mall just last week on Saturday with Glenn's daughter Kayla and had planned to go there again with Morgan on Thursday, but that didn't happen. I had taken Kayla shopping and bought her an outfit and jacket just last Saturday and was at the mall on Monday again or was it Tuesday? can't remember now. I had started some Christmas shopping this week and planned on going there again to Christmas shop with Morgan, vowing not to shop online this year. I still won't shop online this year, but I will have to drive to another mall or shop at Khol's or whatever I can find that is closer then driving into Sacramento.
I did get to see Morgan on Thursday though, but we went to the DQ and then to the park and walked around. It was a beautiful park that I used to take Morgan to when she was a young and also my kids.
Our trip to the pumpkin patch was cancelled due to rain today and tomorrow we can't go ether because it is going to rain then also. Gees....... everything we plan is just not happening. I hope next week will be nice weather, it just went from warm weather to chilly rainy weather, My dogs are not happy. I love chilly weather but I love the sun. I don't like rain or cloudy days. I am so spoiled by the sun we have in California. Were we live the sky is so beautiful this time of year with big fluffy fall clouds and when the sun shines it's so pretty.
Steve took down the border at the top of the wall and the results...... gorgeous!
Above after the wall border was taken down.
Fruit Wall Hanging
Before, the wall border was up and it was to busy......Steve had to remove it, what a mess it was. Never again will I put up a wall border.
Yummy Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Nut Bread I baked and put on the new table then we devoured it! well not all at once.
Gourds for fall decoration in the kitchen
I had to add this one last photos of the crystal suncatchers I make. I am starting to take photos of them outside on sunny days. You have to click on it to see it's full beauty. Sure beats the indoor photos. It's so hard to photograph jewelry I have to make a lightbox so I don't get all those ugly shadows. I found some great directions for taking photos indoors using the lightbox. Here is the link in case anyone is interested, it would be good for other things as well as you will see when you click this link. It's so easy to make I must try it.
Have a great weekend!
Prayers go up and blessings come down.
