Pumpkin Cookie pictures

I got so much done today, including making the delicious pumpkin cookies I mentioned here and the recipe here. I love these scrumptious cookies, they are a perfect fall cookie. Here is the finished cookie. The frosting is the tricky part in this recipe. When it’s done it should have a carmel color similar to…

There is no place like home!!!

I get to be home ALL day today! I am so excited. We were supposed to be at SportTmam’s baseball tournament all day…….but it’s raining in my neck of the woods. So ALL games are canceled for today……can the Hallelujah chorus begin! 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I love these tournaments, I love seeing my…

Complaining and Thankfulness :)

I have a headache, I am so tired, i have tons of laundry to do, my house is a mess……….did I mention that I am tired? Ok, I know I try to post positive things…..but I don’t have much positive energy left today. I must have taken complaining pills this morning instead of my vitamins….

It’s gonna be worth it some day…..

I spent about an hour this afternoon planting 50 bulbs back in my woods. They will bloom in early spring and then I can reflect upon the hard work and sweat I put in today. I will also get to enjoy their beauty at a later time….not right away, not today. I got to thinking…

Wordless Wednesday

This is what happened to Grammy’s nice garden wagon. After she no longer needed it for her garden, she gave it to her grand kids. It has now become the neighborhood go-kart! Grammy would be proud????? 🙂

Much to be thankful for……

I certainly have learned a lot from him in this area. I have been wanting to participate in both of these memes for awhile, but never seem to get to…

So I am driving down the road………

I am driving down the road the other day, praying, and thinking. Since I was alone in the car, this was possible. I realized that I have been suffering from the “I used to” syndrome. I have been feeling very guilty about the “I used to” syndrome and now I  feel like I have been…

When it’s time to change you have to rearrange!

Wasn’t that a top 40 hit from the one and only Brady Bunch?? I remember the episode like it was yesterday. Peter’s voice was changing and they had to change a song around for the talent contest they were trying out for (Think, before American Idol existed!). It was such a great song……or so I…

Wednesday

No more sleeping in until 8:00 No more breakfast on the deck No more slower pace life No more day trips No more staying up late and watching movies….. Ode to the Summer of 08……I will miss you. School starts Wednesday!!
