October Recap

by - Sunday, November 06, 2016

Hi friends, linking up with Gretchen & Kristen today for a monthly recap of October ! 

What a month October was, huh? 
It started with a surprise dinner for my brother who graduated a few weeks before. 

I have been working non stop that I haven't even made it back to the gym as yet. It has become one of those constant saying "I'll start Monday" -- and of course, we known darn well it won't happen on Monday. Ha! Dammit - I miss it so much. I could feel a huge difference in my body since I stopped, and that isn't a 'good' difference. booooo !

Speaking of boooo.... Halloween came and went so quickly! 

I think I was so caught up in all my Birthday glee I pretty much threw the idea of Halloweening out the window.

I did get to carve my own pumpkin this year and it was quite fun but also quite messy. 

This month I was also super excited to see a nest being made and lived in right in my porch that I couldn't contain myself but to document it!
Welcome to the world Hubert & Marjorie 
Nesting with their Mummy 
And Mummy & Daddy spending the last night with them
soooo sweet !!! 

Catching Sunsets <3 

In the earlier part of October, after 3 years, we scattered Dad's ashes in his favourite fishing spot. Due to personal reasons, I won't disclose any photographs of that moment. 
In the evening, my family got together for a little sharing. 

Can we talk about Sushi? I think Sushi is always a good idea. I swear, it cures everything and brings out the crazy in all of us.

Random selfie. 

My darling Missy-Ophelia turned 9. I can't believe it. She is just the most sweetest angel ever ! 

Ending some evenings grabbing a snow-cone around the Savannah.

With being busy with work a lot these days, I am really thankful for the moments I get to enjoy like these.
Although the time frame is jumbled. It was a lovely October and now we welcome November. 
So excited we are getting closer to Christmas !!

    I love that you were excited about the bird nest! When we first moved into our house there were spiky blocks in the corners of our porch and I asked my husband what they were. He said he guessed that was how the previous owners kept birds from nesting. I immediately got rid of them :)

  7. What a month! The bird's nest pictures are awesome. We had a robin's nest at the condo we lived in a few years ago, and I felt so protective of that nest and those baby birds!
