What a week- Sunday in my city

 Joining Unknown Mami today for Sundays in my City


 Lots going on this week in our neck of the woods.....first off this guy has been working up on ladders painting and repairing our front porch....it's coming along but he needs a harness and a helmet after falling off a ladder earlier in the week. I was deep in my closet cleaning and organizing away until I heard the crash. Luckily 911 was not necessary but the boy is covered in scratches and bruises. So now I'm on the crew and helping by holding the ladder and giving my two cents where needed!


Seriously the colors this year! Wow I'm loving this season! 
Just thought I'd throw that in! 




My theater group started up this week. This was our first show of the season....we've added a few more women to our group and of the nine there were mixed reviews. I loved it but I love them all! It was well done, a mix of big screen theatrics and stage...I wasn't sure how they were going to pull off such a big movie into a musical but they did it and I loved it as much as the movie. I'd say see it if it's in your city.





Big news this week and some unfortunate news, our neighbor was arrested for 2nd degree murder.
The neighborhood has been a buzzing with unmarked cars, news crews, looky loos....it's pretty sad!
He actually hasn't lived there since this summer thanks to a domestic violence charge, but his wife and three children live there. I saw him there last week playing catch with one of the kids and now he is awaiting trail for murder. Guilty or not I think it's the best he is far away from these kids, word on the street it's been a tough year for them and having him behind bars will be a blessing. I just hope there is justice for the victims family. You really just don't know what drives people to violence. 


I'm looking forward to a quieter less exciting of a week!
Happy Sunday!

That's so awful about your neighbor. I hope it works itself out for good for the kids.

Wowzers. I guess you never really know what goes on behind closed doors.
Glad your guy is still in one piece! My guy won't go near a ladder unless I'm holding it (thank goodness!) xo

I love my book club, but a theater club would be great too - glad you enjoyed Ghost - I hadn't heard of it as a musical - how fun!

Glad he wasn't hurt. Beautiful tree. Ghost musical...that's different! It is always a scary surprise when we hear something about a neighbor. I remember a neighbor when I was young who murdered his wife with a hammer. Praying his family stays safe.

Do be careful with that ladder! Falls are the most common home injury/accident! And enjoy that beautiful tree!

Often on the news broadcast of these type of neighborhood surprise crimes they will interview someone who says something like "he was always so pleasant". A radio show the other day stated a sad fact - many of us know more about a celebrity than our next door neighbor. It didn't use to be that bad.
Will you be getting your husband the Chutes and Ladders game for Christmas?

Hi Kathy,
Thought I'd check in to say hi. Can you believe Katelyn is a sophomore?!? I loved all her Vera in the car. I so miss the collegiate vibe. Very odd when it's over.

Your foliage is beautiful. Always makes me homesick for our honeymoon 30 years ago!

Enjoy it all. xoxo Marilyn

I am so glad that your hubby did not hurt himself. That neighborhood news is INTENSE!

That was awful to have a murder so close to home...... at least he didn't kill his wife and children.
We also had one round the corner from us back in July, but it was two men in a rehab hostel, one of whom killed the other.
I always think it was somebody's son. Some one loved him somewhere. (Well both of them.)

The lovely red of Autumn. Beautiful.
