A lovely group of bloggers is noting their days by writing a sentence a day. Check out what they are up too through the links below. I'm joining in for October with my sentences for most days:
10/1 - We drove to Santa Paula and had a fun time looking at restored small, old planes at the Aviation Museum open house and then had lunch at the airport cafe.
10/2 - The patio redo continues with the removal of the bougainvillea stumps by Hubby.
10/6 - Interesting art history class this morning while Hubby stayed home with the handyman service and 3 more things on our home repair and improvement checklist were completed!
10/7 - Went to a 1 1/2 hour Fundamentals of Yoga class with a knowledgeable teacher and may be going back as a paying student.
10/8 - Wow, it is incredibly windy with a tree a few houses up coming down - lots of pine needles are also coming down so there will be no problem gathering enough to mulch the patio beds.
10/9 - Yeah for well behaved grand-dog and dog!
10/11 - It took what felt like forever for Hubby to make up his mind on 3 flower pots for the patio but he is happy with the outcome.

10/19 - Six months ago we arrived at our current home with a rental truck full of belongings and an air bed to sleep on and now we have made it a home.
