Beautiful Fall...


We have been enjoying the blessings of other people's gardens and I am sorry things are about done now.  Hubby made lots of applesauce from our trees and is it ever good!

I've been reading a book about the 'Best Friends Animal Sanctuary' in Utah. They have helped and taken in 2000 animals in need. (not all at once, probably....haha)  I find that fantastic and good.  Anyone watch 'SuperVet' on Dish network?  I just watched the last of the series and loved it.

My Parkinson's is really slowing me down...perhaps I need a different medication ....I wonder. Its not been smooth sailing lately for sure.

Since I have posted last....I've been knitting a shoulder shawl....brought home some delightful books from a mall library sale....watched lots of 'Fixer Upper' but really...I've had my fill of that show, have you?

I've been reading.  Can't remember the titles just now.  Listening to audio books at times....watching 'Great Briton Bakes' (reruns).

Playing 'Ticket to Ride'  the railroad game on Apple app.  And....thankful to God for his many blessings to me.

Portrait Time...

This little girl is my favorite cat in the world.  She loves us with all of her little cat heart and makes me laugh every day....several times.  She never tires of trying to be with us....laps preferred.

I am trying to find a cataract doc...one with good recommendations.  I'm afraid there are testimonials to both ends...good and not so good from my friends. I always thought my hubby. a former mailman would have cataracts...but no, its me!  And to think I usually had my nose in a book...as Mom used to say, while  he was in the heat and the sun of the day.  Who knew?

Happy Days and Tired ones too.

 More flowers from my flower garden.  I'm enjoying the burst of mixed colors outside our home.


So often I think of painting my own version of Monet.....just kidding, well....sort of.  We spent the afternoon with family, celebrating my husband's Birthday. I praise the Lord for him.....but... It rained cats and dogs, so to speak.....all afternoon. When the sun finally came out, it looked prettier and more cheerful than ever.

Summer and its Beauty

 I love Cosmos...'Bright Lights' and the purple kind.  They are beautiful and dependable, and dependable is a good thing to be.

Sunny days and cool evenings...

The weather is gorgeous and the flowers are also.  It seems like fall is in the air though.  I worked outside  yesterday .....weeding, and hope to do more of that today.  I just ordered some photos online at Walmart this morning.  I printed off the 'contact' sheet which is great.  In my journaling notebook I use these little photos to remind myself of occasions and things of interest that I want to remember.  So much of life is sweet, oh my, as for the rest..... come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Small Treasures!

 While at our local town yard sale, this wonderful old table....is it called a gateleg table?, became ours.  The two sides drop down and its only about 13 inches across I think, with the sides folded down....and I just love it.  I saw an add for Min Wax Stains recently and decided to stain the top a soft yellow. The stain went  on rather unevenly, but thats life. I still love it and I think puzzle pieces will show up nicely on this top.  Hope so, anyway.

And at a thrift shop, I bought this wonderful puzzle by my favorite puzzle artist, Susan Brabeau for only 50 cents.  Amazing!  Yellow table....here we come.
