Weather heaven!

If there IS such a thing as "weather heaven", I am living in it and have been for the past few days! Wow!!

AND with the changing leaves, it is absolutely gorgeous here in the Hocking Hills and our little valley! This HAS to be my favorite time of the year!

I mean, I DO love spring. It is soooo welcome after the dreariness of a long, cold winter.

BUT, I do believe fall has come out on top!!! :-) (Not that I was havin' a contest or anything! LOL)
Ed and I spent the evening down in the lower part of the yard Saturday evening, burning a brush pile that we had accumulated over the past few months.

Later in the evening, Daniel called and invited us up to watch the OSU/Nebraska game. Here is what we saw when we walked in:

Awwww....I just fall in love with him all over again each time I see him! *sighhhhh* This being a grandma is the best! :-)

Well, anywayyy......we had gone up to the kids to watch the game and we've come to a conclusion: We like to watch football at our house.
Erin's brother Brian was there, too. He and Daniel are best buds. Erin and I were on the IPad and laptop and Ed was watching the game with the boys.
But Daniel and Brian dissect all of the plays and watch the game so a fun way....but it just about drove me crazy! :-)
So, Ed and I have decided that we'll just watch the games here at home or listen to them on the radio. We think it might be our age differences, perhaps. :-)
I mean, they were all having a great time but it was a bit arduous for me. :-)
Oh, here's a picture that Erin took of Daniel and Brian a few weeks ago. They were all at a restaurant somewhere, eating and watching the game together: :-)

Moving right along......
I couldn't remember if I had posted pictures of our new granddoggy or not, so I thought it only fitting that I post some pictures of his cuteness! :-)

He is a Chiweinie! Yes, you read correctly! A Chiweinie!! He is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachsund (weiner dog). Isn't he absolutely adorable? And we love him to pieces!
The first few weeks that the kids had him, Erin brought him to our house and we helped to housetrain him. We fell in love with him and now that he no longer comes here daily, I miss him and whenever we go to their house, he is all over me! :-) We have a mutual admiration going on! :-)

Well, I need to end this post and get myself ready and off to bed! I need all the rest and energy I can glean for "you-know-who" and he gets here bright and early in the morning!

Another friend in Ohio was telling me about the sheer weather perfection they've had lately. Ours is pretty good too : )

That little puppy is too cute!

Good to hear from you again. Ross and I like to listen to the games via radio, but I'm not staying up past my bedtime. I definitely need my sleep to stay functional with the grandkids.

The new pup is a real cutie!

It's been great weather here, too. Love it!

I'd never heard of a Chiweinie before.

Enjoyed your pictures. Looks like you are going to have a pretty fall. It was so dry here and even worse in AR. There was a burn ban on there, hoping they get some of the rain we are getting today. By the way I understand the grandparent thing... nothing better!
until next time... nel

Ahh, you've taken the gorgeous VA weather we usually get. It's been raining here for a month of Sundays. (What on earth that means, I don't know!)

That dog is a cutie and Jaylon's pics in September's post, well, that boy is adorable! He's lucky to have you for a doting grandma!
