Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments A start of a new month means new birthdays. I have cleaned up our birthday area as well as cleaned out the icebox and freezer. Hope everyone is healthy and is recovered some from the fires, floods, hurricanes and busy lives. It has been warmed than it was in the summer at times this past week.
I am going to set up the tables. If you know of any birthdays for October post so we can celebrate.

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments I am going to hang the banners for our first October birthday tomorrow. I am hanging orange, red and yellow banners for this month in keeping with the changing leaves. I am putting on an orange table cloth. There is coffee both regular and decaf brewing. I am putting out an egg and sausage casserole in the icebox where you can get what you like and warm it up in the microwave. I also have an apple pie out. It is fresh. I also have put cold water and milk is in the icebox. I also have hot water for hot tea if you want someone. Many types of tea a as well as different types of creamers are on the counter top.

I also have put out some fresh fruit- last of the fresh peaches, and apples as well as anything you can get fresh.

I may not be around tomorrow as I have to get ready for the Hurricane ( hopefully just a tropical storm) Nate. We are prepared but there are always things to pick up in the yard.

I'm thankful Hurricane Nate didn't inflict a lot of damage on you or your aunt. I'm sure you're heaving a huge sigh of relief and lifting prayers of thanksgiving. My heart goes out to all those who have suffered due to the hurricanes this season.

message 23: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 558 comments First I want to say Thank You! for the birthday wishes.
I experienced a "first" this year. I went to Costco first thing this morning, I was greeted with "Jingle Bells" playing overhead. Seriously, Jingle Bells and other Christmas music playing on October 10th!
I've seen Christmas trees and decorations out this early but never have I heard Christmas music on my birthday.

I love Christmas music and Christmas books and movies year round. It was just a shock to hear it in a store so soon.
I also learned that our birthday flower is a Marigold. I never knew that before, did you?

Laura AKA Loves 2 Read Romance | 909 comments Happy Belated Birthday Carla, Penny, Regina, Ruth, Andrea & Amanda!!

Happy Birthday Shannon!

I have cleaned up the table and set out the coffee, tea and juice. I spied some pumpkin bread in the pantry so I also set that out. Thankfully this is a virtual party so I can have a cup of tea since in the real world I can't have caffeine for the next 24 do to a EEG. I have started to have some health issues which is why I haven't been on this month till now.

Laura, I'm sorry you are having health issues. If you must go caffeine free in the future, Tetley is the best decaf tea I've tried.
Please keep us updated. I'll keep you in my prayers.

I will put homemade chocolate chip cookies on the table.
Hope you had a wonderful day, Louise.


message 50: by Louise (new)

Louise Gouge (louisemgouge) | 419 comments Thank you all for your birthday wishes. I had a lovely day. My family was here, hubby fixed steaks to perfection, and we had chocolate cake! Then we had a special sharing and prayer time around the table, just as we used to do when our children were growing up. The very best way to end a day. The greatest gift I could ever receive besides my salvation is that my children have grown up to be friends. And they live close by. I'm a happy mom/grammy.
