Fun times

We ran over to see our daughter and family yesterday and spent the night...this is Lorelei and her second you can tell they are having a grand time. And do you see what they are playing on? Just a plain old cardboard box. And they have played and played on it. But the time it is thrown away, it will have provided hours and hours of entertainment.

When our girls were little, we would go to the appliance store downtown and get them a box every so often. They had more fun with them than about anything you could buy. I am not sure if all appliances have given up the cardboard boxes, but the last two or three appliances we have bought have come wrapped in plastic...
We got up to a definite chill in the air yesterday and today. Today has gotten a bit warmer than yesterday. I could at least be outside with just a long sleeved shirt...yesterday if I was going to be out for any length of time, I had to have on a jacket.

I definitely feel winter closing in....I do know fall hasn't even officially begun. Nevertheless, I feel winter nipping at my heels. I so wanted a long fall....still hoping to get one. But it won't surprise me if we don't.
