The Secret Life of Blogger's Blog Party: October 2016

Saturday, October 1

I follow this card maker based in the UAE. I bought some cards because I loved her work. Yes, these cards were shipped all the way from Oman and the quality rocks!

Dog-sat Sandy, but also spent some time with Daphne. It felt weird not going outside with my old girl. 

My aunt still has the sheep!

Dad and I went to West Chester University's homecoming. First homecoming I attended as an alum.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I enjoyed your recap of the month of October. Those cards you bought really do look to be top quality. I haven't seen as many pictures of colorful fall leaves on the blog circuit this year. Thanks for posting some. I love pumpkins, squash and gourds and wish the fall season could last forever because they are so plentiful and on display around this time. I hope your kitty can get off prednisone before too long. My dog Toto needed to take it occasionally, too, as did I.

    I wish you a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi Shady!

      Thank you! This year was dry; I guess that is why there hasn't been much colour. It's sad because the colour is one of my favorite things about Autumn. I'm with you on that one.

      We weened Mimi off of prednisone the other day. She seems to be doing well without it, but the other medicines she's on will be for the rest of her life.

      Have a great weekend as well!
