5K Race, Visiting Our Girl at College & Potato Soup & Beef Stew!

Hello everyone! :-)

Fall is finally beginning to show itself here in the South and just in time for Kathleen's 5 K race last weekend. She beat her time from last year and came in second place for her age group. We are so very proud of her. She is currently training for a half marathon!!

After the race we took a nice long ride up to see Hayley at Appalachian State! We've been missing her and we had a great day!

Kathleen really misses having her around! If you like to see my first vlog on YouTube about our weekend you can watch the following video :-)

                               I started another great book that is super hard to put down!

Can start to see some changing leaves, although due to the drought most have turned brown and fallen off the trees quickly. :-(

Since the evenings have been cooler I made a potato soup and beef stew that were a big hit! You can see how I made them by watching my latest YouTube video I posted today :-) I have really enjoyed building my channel and I think it will be nice to look back on through the years. I only wish I'd started sooner; especially when the girls were young so I could watch them grow up on camera.

        Hope you are enjoying the weather where ever you are! :-) Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Hi Jill~

Go Kathleen!! How fun to see her run in her race, and so cool that she beat her time from last year!

It's starting to look like Autumn here as well...almost like winter! On Wednesday, is snowed most of the day.

The book looks wonderful, I love a good book on these cold days, I'm going to check that one out.

Hailey looks like she is having fun at college! I think it's great that she's close enough to visit, such beautiful girls!

Tis' the season for soup and stew! Always fun to watch you cook in your videos, you make it look easy!

Have a wonderful week-end!

Hugs and Love,

Hi Jill,

It's been ages since I've popped by, as I have been on an extended blog break. I've pared back on all other social media sites too. I'm missing my blog friends, though,, so I wanted to pop by and see what y'all are up to.

Wow, Hayley is in college? Wasn't she just starting high school last year? The time sure flies, doesn't it?

You are as beautiful as ever. How are you feeling?

Love and hugs,
