MONDAY MORNING~

I'm glad to know everyone enjoyed seeing my goodies from Target...I must clarify though  that I do not spend all my time at Target or shopping.  Three days per week I have the greatest job in the world, providing care for my grand baby Travis...one day a week I spend  with my dad, who comes to the mainland for grocery shopping...and breakfast at IHOP... 
 Friday is my "me" day unless one of my parent's has a doctors appointment...my opinion is two sets of ears are better than one...So yes, Friday is the day you will find me at Target...my budget consists of $30.00...and the majority of my purchases are holiday, housewares or for Travis Lloyd...Monday morning dawned with a soft haze lying low to the ground...as I walked next door to gather Travis I noticed the leaves with their brilliant color  now at peak...
 the morning air is cool...a soft breeze makes the leaves  swirl as they fall to the wet ground below...
  heads bow  from last night's rain...

the last bouquet from my flower garden is gathered...
 
This cookie has become a favorite of the men in my family...I call them "monster" cookies. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and Reese's Pieces. I use a 1/4  measuring cup...these cookies are crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside and monster in size...
 
finally, the last of my indoor decorating is now complete...ah...perfect timing... a baby calls...have a great day everyone...

It looks like you have the perfect schedule and everything falls into place so naturally. Love your Fall pictures and decors. Those monster cookies are something else aren't they..... and babysitting is the crowning glory to your week.

It just sounds like the perfect kind of way to spend your time. I love the vibrant colors on those trees. It always amazes me the colors that you get to see in the fall. Your cookies look wonderful. I started the dreaded point counting today. With a wedding coming I have to get this weight off that I thoroughly enjoyed putting on this summer. Back to the grind. :)
Have a wonderful week Julie, I would love to spend a Friday with you.

Oh no, you didn't give us the recipe. They look so delicious and crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle are my favorite way to eat a cookie.

What gorgeous pics you share with us. Thank you!
I was at Target today and they had Halloween Oreos, not Candy Cane ones. Sorry to have mislead you.
Pinch those sweet baby cheeks for me.
Hugs :)

Your garden is lovely! And that bouquet!
My MIL makes "monster cookies" too. The recipe might be different. Maybe someday I'll post on them...
Thanks for visiting my blog -- it's a like getting a letter in the mailbox when someone leaves me a comment!
Happy Tuesday.

The first two photos are particularly wonderful - it isn't easy to capture that lovely mist. Oh, and the colors of the trees and the grass are so vivid. Lovely.

It's equally lovely in my corner right now! Though I about 25 miles from the coast, we are socked in fog right now up on our hill...making the leaves POP! Lordy, I do love all the natural color and cooler temps, my soul is singing!!

Recipe for the cookies, perhaps? They look devine and I know all my boys would love them! ~Vonnie
