Friday Randomness


It seems I am in love with the color of ragweed.....not the effects of it.  

My daughter and I already have plans to make a few Drac-o-lanterns.  If you would like to do so check out the website.  

If you are more adventurous, check out these pumpkins.  Make sure you click on the winners of previous years on the left hand sidebar.  AWESOME!  

The chiclets and I are looking forward to fall break next week.  No school for nine days!!!  The Babs and Mr. B are visiting us during this time.  I think I need one of these before they arrive.  
So glad fall is here. 

My son has started driving my car on our little country road.  When did my life get to this point?  

Peace out and enjoy your weekend....wherever you are.

  9. Ragweeds are beautiful! I passed the children learn to drive moments long ago. It doesn't take long.

  10. Is that goldenrod or ragweed?
    Either way, I'm allergic to both. This time of year makes me crazy!
    Pass the Allegra, please.

  11. My daughter wants natural, loose-looking flowers for her wedding next Labor Day weekend, and started talking about how pretty goldenrod and ragweed are. Excuse me, Susie, ever hear about allergies???

  12. Ragweed is very poetic-looking isn't it! But it's not very poetic to my nose. EEEK! Wow - a fall break - our schools don't do that. How fun!

    We got two boys through driving and a girl. You pray alot. And don't be afraid to take the keys away - it's a great tool for grounding and getting them to do stuff they're supposed to... ;)

  15. I'm also noticing the ragweed (pictorially) more than ever this year. Wonder if it's brighter or something . . . It sure is attractive.

  23. Knock wood,I am not allergic to ragweed or other weeds and hopefully never will be.

    I remember when my kids first learned to drive ... nail biting time..lol!

  24. I think that's goldenrod in your photo (only reason I know, it's our State flower.) But just as bothersome as ragweed, I'm sure.

    I had two teen boys driving at one time. Yikes! :)
