How was everyone’s weekend?  The weather was beautiful so I got all fall and bought a bunch of mums to replace the dried and depressing flowers that were still in my flower pots.  None of the buds are quite open yet since it’s still early so everything just looks like a green bush filling the pots.  This is my first step to embracing the change that’s coming…..and pumpkin spice, of course.

I have some travel coming up this week and so does the Pope….if you haven’t heard.  The World Meeting of Families is being hosted in Philadelphia this week and, of course, this is when I am scheduled to travel.  The city is closing down several major highways and a few towns are declaring a state of emergency.  Something you don’t really hear of unless there’s a huge snow storm…so basically, they want everyone to park their butts on the sofa and wait out the Pope’s visit.  Not me….I’m getting on a plane this week for a two day trip and returning when all the mayhem is about to get really insane. And the hilarious thing about this, to me anyway, is that I don’t travel that much.  So, the one trip I DO take is exactly when travel in these parts will be like a three ring circus….or the apocalypse.
