It's Thursday ~ one more week and Thanksgiving~!

There is color in fall that gives the landscape a perk...I don't know what these pretty red berries are called but they are nice and the birds I'm sure will like them. My sister knows what they are and when she sees this blog I'm sure she will tell me.. She is in South Carolina where it's nice a warm... Everything is so green here and today was just a really nice day... It's 29 now and goodness to be it's 5 p.m. and it's dark outside.. I would hate to have to go to work now ~ leave in the dark come home in the dark...
Going to Dwight, Illinois tomorrow for a National Plowing Board meeting. Dave is the President of the U.S.A. Plowing Organization and every year we have to go to Illinois for this meeting. We will be there in the afternoon on Friday and he will be there for the meeting at 9 a.m. on Saturday...
I looked up www.geocaching.com and found lots of caches to be found in Dwight. So it should keep me busy most of the day. This evening I will get my hand held Garmin GPS loaded with all the coordinates and be ready to go hunting.. I can hardly wait.. Wished I new someone in Dwight, Illinois that geocached and we could go together. It's fun to go with someone.. But that's O.K. I can do this myself and still have a great time.. The weather is suppose to be nice and sunny.. Probably will be in the 40's and will be a great day to go geocaching..
Saturday afternoon after the meeting is over, Dave and I are going to drive to Barrington, Illinois where my son, Rich lives and the 3 grandchildren. Stay with him until Monday morning and then come back home. It's going to be a great week-end... Fun in the sun and have fun with my son....
Today I went to the library to find the book Pocketful of Names written by Joe Coomer. I went to Marion library, not there and then I went to Springville Library and no find but the librarian was at Barnes and Noble buying books and this gal working at the library called Mary and told her to buy the book for the library...She said she would call me and let me know when it was available.. How about that? I also tried to find Off to Plymouth Rock.. no find for that one either.
So I picked up a couple of fun books for Ben . HE loves me to read to him. We are going to my son's house in Illinois for Thanksgiving so I will take them with me to read to him in the car. Since Ben and Tracie will be riding with us..
Well, you all have a great day tomorrow.. It's the start of a great week-end for some of you that still have to work. Ta Ta For Now...from Iowa...29 degrees at 5:23...

We got Pierce a geomate jr. for his bday this year. We've been too busy to try it out, but maybe this weekend - it's supposed to be in the 60s so that'd be great weather for some hiking!

Sounds like your going to have a busy weekend with lots of fun! I hope you have a great time!

How cool that the library picked up those books for you!

Oh those berries are beautiful. Wish I could live nearer to go geocaching with you. I have never done that and am always curious. I know Yogi in Oklahoma mentions it on his blog. Always sounds like so much fun. Have a great weekend traveling and being with your family.

p.s. thought the story about the library was pretty neat too.

Found you through Joycee's blog.

These blogs are very broadening (pun intended with all the delicious recipes) and then all the new terms. Just this morning I read:

geocaching - no idea what that was
falafel - heard of but wasn't sure about it
broadbeans - knew it was something other gardeners grew, but not in southwest Missouri.

Have a super weekend.
