Stuff on the Wall

 (My sister sent me a hefty gift card so I bought this new Bible. It's called the Abide Bible.  I really love it!)

We had Noah's, Lizzy's, and my birthday this month so last week meant lots of lovely celebrating.  My mom sent me tulips from tulip land in Washington.  

Jenny wanted my Grandma Moses pictures.  She meant that she wanted them when we die😂 but I gave them to her now.  Anytime one of our children says they want something when we are gone, I am going to try to get them to take what they want NOW.  We'll see how that goes.  Anyway, I had to put something where the Grandma Moses pictures were so I found these Katie Daisy prints, had them laminated, and hung them in the dining room.  We aren't fancy here.  Aren't they perfect?  I especially love the "over the river and through the woods" print.

I was very sad about Queen Elizabeth's passing. I've been reading a lot about her.  My prayer group prayed about the wild and powerful hurricane that is descending upon Florida right now.  

Our weather has been absolutely perfect.  It feels like fall in the mornings.

We bought a new mattress and box spring.  We are waiting for the mattress to puff up (48 hours).  We decided to search for inexpensive mattresses that had high ratings.  I hope it's comfy!  We'll try it tomorrow.

I hope you are doing well. I hope you know that you are dearly loved and paid attention to by God who made everything and IS everything.  

My stomach is rumbling.  I'm going to eat some bite size shredded wheat.  What do you eat for breakfast?  I need ideas.

Sending heaps of love your way and thank you for visiting.  (BIG HUG!)

Yay September and a Moose

Happy September!  I haven't turned my calendar yet!  I must!  Bill cleared all the mess (weeds) from the flower beds and now I like them again.  We're ready for fall even though the temperatures are in the 90's and it feels like FULL summer. I tire of the heat, do you? When Bill was clearing the front beds he came upon a little snake. Argh.  I can't tolerate snakes at all so I am bugged by that more than a little. Have you seen any creatures in YOUR garden?
I've been knitting and knitting.  I made shortie socks.
I've been sewing, too.  I like these red linen pants.  I prefer this type of pants that are straight legged and roomy. 
These sweet peas came over!
Sophie's special friend came over and ate Chinese food with us and played four-square.

Kelli and Bryan saw a moose at their campground!

 It's Labor Day today.  I am trying to get all the stuff done for my children's leader role at Bible study that starts Wednesday.  I'm almost ready.  I would like to sew today and knit! I think I'm a little tired from the weekend.  I'm a smidge grumpy.  Oh well.

I've been reading wonderful books by Noel Streatfeild.  She was such a lovely writer for kids (and grown ups).  My favorite is Tea by the Nursery Fire.  It's about a nanny and I do love nannies.

Oh, I wanted to ask you about "cobbler" because I was thinking cobbler and crisp are the same thing but I made cobbler and it's very cake-y and I'm not sure it turned out right.  Please clarify if you can.


What have you been up to?
