Short & Sweet Today...
kinda like me--
I am neither 
I must be confusing myself with someone else.

I have to be at my son's house at 6am
to get his little guy off for his little school.

So-here it is-
What is...what was...what's coming!

Here is what we saw the other night.
Wisconsin has some of the most beautiful sunsets
I have ever seen.
This is totally untouched.
Taken directly from my iPhone.
Still bonfires to burn this fall.
We won't mention the idiot's name 
who burned my little table.
You can see it sparkling merrily 
as the fire kisses its legs.

Flowers in my yard---gone!
The Outside Tub
Closed for Bathing Business
The babies that hold up traffic on a 
MAIN ROAD for 20 minutes at at time..
Grown and headed South!

Don't despair 
Good things are a'coming!
Maybe tomorrow if I can get 
my butt myself in gear
I will have some fall to share with you.
wish me luck getting CJK off to school.
He is good at "sick" 
if he thinks he can spend the day 
at Nana's house.
He has, at three years old, 
learned that you can't
So now he gets a stomach ache.
Try to nail that one down!
However, I can tell when he really IS sick!
He gets red cheeks and grabs his monkey
and looks pathetic.
Okay, peeps!
That's all I got for the day.
Well, except for one more thing.
You remember about the 
That people that LABEL should 
Well, guess what I am NOT having for breakfast this morning!

Glad they didn't use a U instead of an A!
They mighta had a run on those babies!

beautiful sunset! I love your view so much. I was a sick faker all the time. I think a school schedule is too much for kids. they need breaks in the week and personal days :) I can't believe how many of my clients' kids are moving away from traditional schools into less structured programs.

Debby said...

Beautiful sky. Love your fairy gardens. I hope you didn't get tricked this morning.

Kathy said...

Diana you always start my day with a smile. I wish I lived next door to you, I'd always be laughing. LOVE the sunset picture. So beautiful. Have fun with CJK. Don't let him talk you out of school. He's a cutie and I'd be tempted to take him home with me. Have a good day! I thought the same as you with the Pop-Tarts. Hmm...

Wow, that first picture is magnificent, and worthy of framing.

Get that little guy off to school and enjoy your day.

Chatty Crone said...

Hope you got that cute little one off to school. That photo of your sky, from your phone was just beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Adam said...

never hire the dyslexic guy to write your signs

Kim said...

Who wouldn't want to stay home with you? Can you blame him? ;)

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Don't tell him about the red cheeks and grab monkey and look pathetic. He'll be pinching his cheeks and grabbing monkey and faking the 'look miserable' thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh that sky!!!

Oh that poor little table! I take it, that HE didn't gather enough kindling, before starting the wee fire in the wee fire pit... -smirk-

Susie said...

Diana, Poor little CJK...he's so sweet. What was your hero thinking burning something you could paint....and transform. That outside tub cracked me up...all kids should be bathed outside. LOL I love the sunset photo and can't wait to see your fall décor. Blessings for a great day, xoxo,Susie

Junkchiccottage said...

Ha Ha you crack me up. Have fun seeing CJK this morning. Loved the sunset. Gorgeous.

Anonymous said...

what a little sweet heart he is,, your Grand children all resemble each other, they are beautiful children,,

I can't believe someone burned your table,

Down On The Farm said...

What a sunset! Enjoy your grandbabies!!! Blessings my friend!

Suzan Sweatman said...

Oh the boys in the bathtub - I didn't realize you could use it - how precious is that?
Hope your mission impossible went smooth this morning Diana lol
I bought Evan a curious George :)

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

That sky is just gorgeous....thanks for sharing it with us! hugs...

Debbiedoos said...

Hahahahah, I'm not touching no pop tards! The boys look so cute in the tub. Life is busy and fun:)

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, You know that CJ steals your heart and you love him to pieces. They learn at a very early age how to wrap us around their little finger to get what they want. Most boys would sooner stay home then go to school. My youngest was going to the symphony today for a field trip and looking forward to it. The boys are so cute. Have a wonderful day and be strong so you don't get wrapped around CJ little finger to get what he wants. Ha. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Those Pop Tards cracked me up! Wonder how long it was there until someone noticed. Lol! I remember when people used to send all those "headlines" in to Jay Leno. So many mistakes in ads and newspapers. We loved watching those! Can't believe you had to be there at 6am! That's EARLY! Smart boy that already knows how to fake it. :) Our sunset was pink and orange last night too, but not nearly as glorious as this. Beautiful! So sorry about your table. Oh man.

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Yes...Wisconsin has the most beautiful sunsets...that's cause this is God's Country!!! Oh my "Mr. Wonderful" has done a few things around here that were not pleasing to me....wish he would stay out of the kitchen. Sorry to hear about your little table ending up in the bonfire.

Art and Sand said...

The last pic is too funny, but my favorite is the ducks crossing the road.

Nonnie said...

That sunset is absolutely gorgeous and I am saving it. Your sweet baby needs his Nana and knows how to get her! Hope he's feeling better before the day is over. The spelling you see everywhere is atrocious!

BeachGypsy said...

I didn't know you were back!!I am so glad to see you posting again!! Enjoying reading all your catch up posts! Welcome back my friend!!

Patty Patterson said...

CJK is precious! I hope he isn't really sick. But - you can't really blame him for faking. I think I'd rather go to Nana's than school, too!

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

Diana, I was drinking a cup of tea while I was reading your post--when I got to the end--tea came out my nose! Love the photos-well maybe not the fire burning table--but the sunset is lovely. I wouldn't want to go to school either if you were my Nana! ♥

LV said...

What a gorgeous sight to wake up and see. Rarely see that in Texas. For someone to not have time to blog much, you sure did a great job on many subjects. I have decided when it comes to grandchildren or great grans, there is nothing we want sacrifice for them.

camp and cottage living said...

That is an amazing sunset, Diana.
I love cinnamon pop tards. Probably someone like myself making the signs up!
How cute the g'boys are in your outdoor bathing tub. and are you really short, Diana?

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

OMG Pop-Tards... I'm snickering! I hope your day was great and moved along without sick kids! That sunset is fabulous!

Missy George said...

Love the Pop-Tards..You're funny!! CJK is so cute..Sorry he's sick........Gorgeous sunset!!

Anne said...

Beautiful sky! And yes... I know all that is going away and soon the winds will change and bring back the cold...yuck! I'm enjoying this beautiful day today, knowing that it soon will change. And those flip flops will get hidden in the closet until next!

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Lol, another Walmart blooper? Too funny. The sunset is indeed gorgeous! Wow. And your table got burned ? Did it have an issue? It looks like it was ok (other than the fire thing). Love all your pictures. Your grand babies are adorable.


Who put that table in the fire??? I enjoy your humor..FYI!
Enjoy the up coming weekend...beautiful sunset!!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Oh Diana, you are to funny. Loved the post. Your sunset is stunning - God does make some beautiful sunsets. Have a good evening.

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

NaNa's house and duties don't open till 9 a.m. around here!! Oh boy, that is early to be getting the little one off. Wow! what a sunset! You are a delight to read. Looking forward to your Fall stuff!

Laurie said...

Well you are totally back with your crazy self. I wouldn't eat those things, either. Now, for the love.....I love that outdoors bath tub. What a great idea! I mean we have an outdoor shower at the beach, but I just love the tub idea even better. That sunset is gorgeous. Our sunset this evening was shades of lavender and pink, although the picture I took of it didn't show the soft hues, but more harsh ones. It was still picture worthy, though. And the idiot that burned your table...well, we just won't even go there.

Nellie said...

Too, too funny, Diana! Gorgeous sunset! Hopefully that grandson was all healthy today! xo Nellie

Bliss said...

Ah ha ha ha ha ha

Lorrie said...

Hope you've had a good day looking after your sweet little grandson. Chuckled aloud at the last photo - as an English teacher the spelling on the internet and newspapers and billboards and signs and church songs drives me CRAZY!

Donna said...

Wow, that sunset is just gorgeous, Diana! I bet you were enjoying that while taking a bubble bath in your outdoor tub, right?? Poor CJK, hope he feels better soon! Those crazy typos make me laugh, too!

Bethany Carson said...

The sunset is absolutely beautiful! All the best in getting CJK to school!

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Diana was out all day and just now I'm relaxing catching up with what I missed today in Blogland. Your sunset photo is gorgeous - spiritually glorious. Quick question why is that adorable table being set aglow? Poor kid, those bright pink cheeks just shout out I need a big hug.

Consider It All Joy said...

Pop-tard was the first word out of K~Baby's mouth when she walked into the house this AM, I'm glad they didn't use a 'U' as well :) Hope your day was great and the little guy made it to school! Blessings, Cindy

Linda said...

I am still thinking about that bathtub!!! Did you actually use that one outside this summer??? I want one!!!!
You do the BEST posts and I can't wait to see what's coming!!!

Rose L said...

I think you are sweet! And kind, and funny, and creative, and nice, and good.

Have a Daily said...

Pop Tards? Oh my!! All they had to do was look at the package. lol! Yes, I know that real sick look in my grands as well. You can see it in their eyes. You may not be short, but you certainly are sweet; and always good for a laugh!!

Pom Pom said...

Ha! Our kids faked sick, so now we are experts, right?
Wow! That sunset. You live in such a beautiful place, Diana. DON'T MOVE EVER!
