Today’s CD cover is so cool and was such fun to create with. Thanks Mel for the fun challenge! We spent the Easter weekend with our daughter and her family this year. The church is only a block or two from our daughter’s home, so on days when the parking lots over flow or when the weather is especially pretty we all walk to church on Sunday. On Easter Sunday this year, the parking lots were full, the street parking was full and the weather was especially beautiful . . . so the seven of us set out for the ten minute walk to church. (I will admit that my high heels were a bit wobbly when traversing the cracked sidewalks!)

I went inside to grab my camera and returned to find the eldest giving lessons on how to get the spoons to stick to their noses. This turned out quiet successfully . . . but, my camera battery was dead! One of these days I will have a batch of spoons and a batch of grandchildren and take a photo of all the noses with spoons attached to each . . . and a freshly charged battery in my camera! [b]Journaling:[/b] Today Papa’s little truck just happened to be sitting in the drive . . . the kids just happened to have cups full of yummy Coca-Cola floats . . . the truck just happened to have the tail-gate down . . . and, the kids just happened to need a comfortable &amp; sturdy place to sit down to eat. And, next . . . their spoons just happened to need to somehow stick to all five noses eventually! Lots of good things coming to the store really soon!

The photo is of our youngest granddaughter . . . I’ve used this photo to make a previous layout, but I wanted to use it on this recipe for the cookies, which our daughter makes. Bess made them for her grandmother, who was living with our family for a few years. HaHee had a real sweet tooth and loved these cookies so much . . . of course, anything her only granddaughter made had to be wonderful to her! (I seem to have inherited my mother’s sweet tooth!)[/I] I keep a stash of out-of-date spices and mixes in a sack for the grands to pull out when they want to &quot;cook&quot;. [b]Journaling:[/b] When Bess was home from for Easter break in 1996, she found this oatmeal cookie recipe in a magazine. HaHee was living with us at the time, and Bess made the cookies for her. She loved them just as we all did . . . so, Bess made them often when she would come home from school for a little visit. While I made the real oatmeal cookies . . . Anderson who was almost three years old stirred up a concoction of oatmeal, water, mustard, sprinkles, catsup &amp; out-of-date spices from my grandchildren’s cooking stash!

This page is a recipe, which I’ve used, in the past few years for birthday cakes. The kids love it . . . but love to lick it straight off of the cake better than waiting until the celebration I think! [b]Journaling:[/b] While some of the children were visiting in March I made a birthday cake for Mark and Uncle Mark so we could celebrate their birthday’s. This year it was Batman . . . Mark loves Batman now and Uncle Mark loved him when he was four too! Andrew is tasting the cake before our party in this photo. I’m not sure where I got this recipe. I doubt it was from Mother, Aunt Velma or Aunt Lucy . . . because I think that meringue power is a relatively new item in our groceries. This is perfect for a birthday cake with sprinkles, batman and lots of bats for these two little boys.

Most all of them have tried getting in the water in March or November . . . quickly getting out as soon as they turn blue. This photo was made last summer in June, so the water was warm and the kids were happy! Today is the first time I have done a page for the Template Smashup . . . what fun! I rearranged the LayerWorks all over the place and used the circles and rectangles from Ali’s template. I can’t wait to see which templates the next Smashup is going to include! Thanks for the fun, Wendy!

I ended up with something quiet different than the idea in my head originally . . . so apologies to Marye! Somehow my page morphed into the use of thee frames in a row rather than my original three tones of the same photo and the “grandmother” element like Marye’s “grandfather” element! I still have my original try saved, so I’ll go back and try another layout using the toned tri-photo! The two photographs are of my husband’s fiery redheaded grandmother as a young woman. We think this must have been her wedding photograph. My husband's family really knows very little about her other than that she was a school teacher married to a Judge and had one daughter.

We have a farm in the next county over from where we live . . . my husband raises Black Angus cows there. Something is beleaguering our newborn calves from time to time. We lost one recently and are fairly sure that it is coyotes who killed the little fellow. The Shell service station down the road from us is very kind to save the unsold hot dogs for us at the end of each day, so Ed can put them out for the critters. He is hopeful that a Critter Cam can help him narrow down the culprit. I think that he likes to play detective!! [I](An April Fool’s Day joke played on my husband this year, was this photograph of a ground hog, blue jay, squirrel &amp; crows visiting his hot dog site. He fell for it! And, was amazed that they were all there at once. Actually the critters were there individually . . . definitely not together! I don’t believe that all four of these fellows would have gotten along to well as a group! My husband was dumbfounded when he saw this photograph today. The photographs of the racoon and possum weren’t good at all, as they were made in the evening and very burry. Those two seem to coexist very well. Gotta love the power of Photoshop, don’t we? It was so easy to blend all of the critters into one photo.) In all, the Critter Cam took multiple photos of the crows (the only ones which actually were eating the hot dogs for the camera), the groundhog, an army of squirrels, one beautiful tortoise-shell cat, the blue jay, several possums and raccoons and one or two curious cows![/I] [b]Journaling:[/b] Ed has the Tiger Mart down the road save the unsold hot dogs for him to take to the farm to feed the critters. He bought a Critter Cam this week and installed it at the farm to see just who is eating those hot dogs! He hopes that it is coyotes so he can go there and sit inside the old house and pick off a few of them. He had a newborn calf killed by coyotes recently, and wants them gone if possible. This blue jay, groundhog, squirrel &amp; pair of crows played an April’s Fool’s Day prank on him!!! The coyotes are continuing to remain very wily!

[b]Journaling[/b] Last night our birthday group of eight friends, met at Aleta’s house to celebrate Carol’s birthday. Aleta broke her leg two weeks ago, so we have all been going to her house rather than the Chop House for our weekly Monday lunches together and now for this birthday supper too. Last night, we all stopped for take out food and then met at 5:30 to eat and catch up on how Aleta is doing. A large group from church has just recently returned from 10 days in the Holy Land. Olivia, Carol &amp; Lucinda all went and brought each of us a beautiful and sweet smelling Olive wood hand carved cross back home as a remembrance. My cross is so beautiful with the thread like veining in the wood and I absolutely love it. I can’t decide whether to have a screw placed in the top so I can wear it as a necklace or to keep it with my Bible to hold in my hands. It is truly lovely . . . a beautiful treasure . . . and, the most perfect gift from these three wonderful friends who were so very thoughtful to think of the rest of us while they were in Jerusalem. We had a delightful visit and caught up on everyone’s goings on this past week and as always enjoyed each other’s company so much. Last night was one, which we will all as friends, traveling companions and Monday lunch buddies for the past 30 years!

[b]Journaling:[/b] Ken &amp; his family were here for four days this week. They stayed at the farm and on Saturday Papa &amp; Monnie picked up Mitchell &amp; Henry and we all joined them for the day. The Creek is always the main draw at our house on a hot day, and today was a classic Southern hot summers day! Our little 3 &amp; 1/2 year old Cassie was the day’s star swimmer. Actually, the creek is only about a foot deep in places so she could lie on her belly and peek out of the water like a little frog. She had such fun and we had such fun watching her too. I thought that she looked just like a little frog peeking his heard above the water!

Here is one where I loved the story (I till smile when I remember our little fellow moving up the church stairs backwards with his stiff Easter shoes left on the bottom steps) . . . and sitting on top wiping tears from his eyes. All of the people sidestepping him is too funny . . . most of them stopped to offer a bit of sympathy. [b]Journaling:[/b] When Mark had just turned four, he stayed at our house for a week all by himself. We dressed him in his Easter suit and his new shoes for church on Sunday. After church he scurried out of the sanctuary and we found him sitting on the stairs close to the bottom, crying . . . he inched up step by step until he was almost to the top. He had abandoned his new shoes on the way up . . . they hurt his sweet little just barely four year old feet!

Your mama sent us a text with this photograph &amp; a video of you in it. In that video, you were talking to your mama saying, “I love you as much as God loves me and to the moon and back . . . ”.

If I fall a little behind, it is so easy to catch up. Journaling: Near the end of last season, I purchased this scraggly hydrangea in a clearance sale. Because I’m lazy, I didn’t get it planted . . . it has had plenty of water over the winter, so I’m looking forward to putting it in the ground soon and watching it grow green and produce it’s beautiful blooms!

Kelly chose a perfect layout for her Saturday Scraplift this weekend! My page is from a trip last autumn with a group of DD friends to Florida/Georgia/South Carolina . . . we had such fun . . . so I thought that a suitcase full of good friends would fill the bill for a lift of Brenda's cool layout. After seeing my layout in the Gallery I had a change of heart . . . so I wiggled things around . . . changed the alpha out to [b]MBS Jelly Alpha No. 14[/b] . . . and whitened the background on the journalers a bit. Here is the original which is on the DD Blog for today’s SSL . . . the updated one is above. What do you think?

It is called [b]Percolator[/b] . . . it is soooo much fun to play with. Katie posted a layout last week using an app called [b]Glaze[/b] . . . so, I found it and also found the app I used here. I love taking photos with my iPhone when shopping . . . I often will take a photo of something I like and then let it simmer in my head for a week or so before deciding if I need it or I’m just being impulsive! That was the way with this mixer . . . sent the pic to daughter so see if she might want it for her birthday! I have a 30+ year old white KitchenAid mixer that was a freebie when we bought a KitchenAid refrigerator in 1979 or 1980 . . . so no pretty colored mixer for me since my old one chugs along just swimmingly even after hundreds of cakes, cookies &amp; meatloaf! The frig is still humming along pretty nicely too . . . but, I do want a new refrigerator!! Here is my original photo: [URL=http://s222.photobucket.com/user/mj45sew/media/7f3b6848-b6dd-4588-8724-4f65dac0d396_zpseb2c0124.jpg.html][IMG]http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd233/mj45sew/7f3b6848-b6dd-4588-8724-4f65dac0d396_zpseb2c0124.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [b]Journaling:[/b] Today I went to Target to buy a few extra Valentine cards, and of course, I had my trusty iPhone along for the ride . . . so I snapped a few random photographs along the aisles. A beautiful aqua KitchenAid mixer caught my eye, and I pushed the button it to send to Bess whose kitchen is the same lovely color. While watching the Olympics this afternoon I played with a new app I downloaded this week . . . this is the fun result . . . I love it and I had so much fun while the downhill skiers had their own fun speed skating, flying on the Luge &amp; bumping over moguls in Sochi!

I just love milk in my coffee and couldn’t drink it without milk.

I took this photo of our back door just because I hadn’t taken a photo on this day . . . I snapped my camera because I was tired and had no ideas for a nice photo this day. But, when I pulled it into this layout and thought what few words I could write I found that so many thought and memories came to mind . . . so here they are. I’m so glad that I couldn’t find a brilliant photograph! I left out just how many times my husband has snagged his sleeve on my doorknocker!! [b]Journaling:[/b] How many times in the past 40 years has this door been opened for us to come inside our home? How many times has this door been closed and locked when we are away so we can return safely to our home? This back door is a symbol of the comings and the goings of our years together here . . . the happy welcoming of friends, neighbors, grandparents, aunts, uncles, new grandbabies and the many dogs &amp; cats which we have held so dear. This door has been painted red, green, white and now, black. This door has opened for dinner parties, graduation celebrations, weddings held here in our back yard, opened for children and grandchildren who have needed a celebratory hug or a comforting word. . There have been a few times when the door has closed after the visit of a loved one for the last time that they would be with us here . . . of course, one never knew when that turn of the knob would close a chapter of our lives together as we knew it then. This door is a part of our family it seems!

I will probably put a few more travel ornament pages in eventually! [b]Journaling:[/b] Ed and I have logged in many travel miles in our married life . . . and, I have found that Christmas ornaments make the best keepsakes ever! I got this cute little felt French Sailor ornament while we were on a trip to France in September of 2010 with a group of friends. Carol, Olivia &amp; I decided that we wouldn’t go on the climbing tour through Mont St. Michele with our group and decided instead to walk around and visit the little shops and have a snack and just visit &amp; relax. Funny that this is just about the only thing that I bought while in France. Each time I look at him I will remember the three of us sitting on the steps of one particularly steep section of the walk up and running into the rest of the climbing tour group trudging up behind us!

[b]Journaling:[/b] Mother taught second grade at Jere Whitson school for many years. Her first year to go back after I was born was in 1952 when I was in the second grade at Capshaw. The manager of the local Kroger’s grocery store had a little boy in her class a year or two later. Mr. Grogan often brought mother discarded display items or fun promotional materials, which were not all given away in the store. At Christmas, he brought a stack of cardboard punch-out angels and choirboys to mother for the children to put together for their class Christmas tree. Mother brought several of the little figures home for me to put together for our tree. When I cleaned out Mother &amp; Daddy’s house several years ago, I was amazed to find six pair of these in a box in the attic already put together from that long ago tree. These little figures advertising Post Toasties cereal hang on our tree today and bring sweet memories of not only my childhood tree at home and Mother’s Christmas trees at Jere Whitson, but also the many Christmas trees from classrooms when I was a child in elementary school.

I think that this book will take a few years to finish . . . I’m in no hurry . . . I am loving thinking of what the ornaments mean to me and to our children and enjoying the process creating this memory book. [b]Journaling:[/b] Aunt Velma began making darling little felt Christmas ornaments in the mid-1960’s. This little gingerbread man was probably one of the first, which she made. I have about a dozen of them hanging on our tree. Later on she bought a few of the very popular commercial kits to make more elaborate felt ornaments, which she made and then traced off the patterns and made dozens more of each new one bought for quiet a few years. I know that she most likely made many for her other nieces and nephews as well as for herself, Mother and Aunt Lucille. I received a few after Michael was born and later on when Mother and Daddy quit putting up their own Christmas trees, I was given many, many more little felt ornaments. The gingerbread men continue to be my some of my favorites of the felt menagerie!

I decided not to do a 2012 Daily December book . . . but I am working on three unfinished Christmas books . . . and an ongoing 50 years of Christmas Cards for our family celebrations for the past 48 years + 2 that will be added over the next two years. I’m using Ali’s [b]Love You Because Layered Template set[/b] for the pages with a few changes to include all of the days of the Christmas season.

I enjoyed making another page for my ongoing Christmas Card Book which begins the Christmas of 1966 . . . the year in which my husband and I married and continuing forward. I plan for this project to take me about two years . . . ‘book one’ will be from 1966 to 1991: the 1st 25 years! ‘Book two’ will start in 1992 and cover the second 25 years of Christmas cards! 1970 will have four pages in this new book . . . here are the pages 1 &amp; 2.

Bragg. It was in this home that we celebrated Christmas for the first time as a family of four with our sweet nine-month-old Mark and two-year old Michael. This year our tree was larger our ornament collection was growing and our hearts were full of the blessings given to us in the past twelve months. Aunt Velma made us a few cute little felt nursery rhyme ornaments and we bought a few more strands of light and Christmas balls. HaHee gave the little boys some cute ornaments and Aunt Lucille found two wooden ornaments when the two of us went to Christmas Village in Nashville with their names painted on them. We still didn’t have a mantle to hang our stockings from, but we did have a wonderful book case that Ernie made for our new home which was perfect to for 4 cup-screws to hang our stocking from . . . we added a new stocking made by Aunt Velma for baby Mark. This year we had our pretty tree in North Carolina plus two other trees in Cookeville and Crossville! We drove in our little white Renault to celebrate the holidays with our children’s grandparents! It had been almost six moths since we had seen them and I know that they and we looked forward to Christmas with our little boys!

Nancy, Becky, Sara &amp; Janie were coming for a visit . . . the weather was cooling off a bit and fall was in the air, so Aunt Velma and I decided that it was just the right time for a big Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and all the trimmings! So that is just what we did . . . the bird was in the oven . . . the dressing made . . . potatoes mashed, eggs were stuffed, green beans shelled and cooked to a fair-the-well . . . dozens of hot rolls rolled out and set to rise . . . three pies made . . . the Thanksgiving cloth and the candles were on the table. What a wonderful three days we six girls had . . . it was one of those perfect days, which would always stick in our hearts!

We lived with my Aunt Velma in her big old house in my hometown. Other than the fact that E. was overseas the year was wonderful. Our then one-year-old son, my parents and two aunts were such a blessing. I know that friends were particularly kind to us that year because I was expecting our second baby and an absent daddy gave us so much distraction that things were much easier than I would have ever thought. Christmas that year was and still is vividly planted in my mind! I have two more pages to add to 1969 . . . just need to dig deeper into old photos and letters to snag what I need! [URL=http://s222.photobucket.com/user/mj45sew/media/3980cad2-96ea-4760-bcb3-f4df9f4ce313_zps35e5757f.jpg.html][IMG]http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd233/mj45sew/3980cad2-96ea-4760-bcb3-f4df9f4ce313_zps35e5757f.jpg[/IMG][/URL] [b]Journaling:[/b] This Christmas Michael and Mommy are living with Aunt Velma on Douglas Street . . . Daddy is in Cu Chi Vietnam and really misses us . . . just like we miss him. We have so many blessings this year . . . Daddy is safe today . . . HaHee, Papa Pat, Aunt Lucille and Aunt Velma come to see us every day and most days, we walk to see them too. The weather is pretty nice this December. The temperature has been pretty good most of the time . . . a few days it was nearly 60 and Michael could play outside in the big pen which Papa Pat built for him . . . one day we had 6 inches of snow and went outside to build a little snowman with Michael. We were able to walk to town for a visit with Aunt Velma and have a treat at the Boyd Drug Store with her and then walk on up to the old Library for a little visit with HaHee. Some days Papa Pat or Aunt Lucille would come to Aunt Velma’s house for lunch. We helped put up Aunt Velma’s Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving this year . . . we strung popcorn and hung it all over the tree. Michael would pull the strings out and take a nibble from time to time . . . we have a movie of this to laugh at! On Sunday evenings we drove down to Jo Haile’s house for more popcorn before Aunt Velma, HaHee, Charlene &amp; Jo began their weekly bridge game. On Christmas Day we all went to the Hailes after we opened out gifts to see what Santa brought them and enjoy their tree with them. We had a big Christmas lunch at Aunt Velma’s house . . . Aunt Lucille, HaHee, Papa Pat, Mommy &amp; Michael all enjoyed this so much. Before Christmas Michael helped make sugar cookies using some of the old cookie cutters that had been used for many, many Christmas cookies in years gone by. Some were frosted sugar cookies and some were fragrant gingerbread cookies. When Michael would have a cookie you were often sitting in your high chair . . . before the first bite, he would “pin it” and try to make it spin on the tray . . . then bite in and get frosting all over his little face. You can see from the photographs of Christmas that Mommy gave Michael a really bad haircut this time! We went to church to see the Christmas Nativity, which was produced by Miss Dollie. Michael was particularly interested in the three wise men with their golden crowns this year! The costumes came from the costume closet at Camp Monterey! Mommy made white corduroy overalls with a partridge in the pair tree for Michael’s Christmas outfit this year. She copied them from a New York Times Lord &amp; Taylor advertisement in the Sunday paper, which Jo Haile tore out and gave to her. Jo loved children’s clothes just as much as I did and always tore out things from her catalogues for me to copy!

This year when we send out our Christmas cards it will the 48th card we have sent since our wedding in 1966. For years, I have been meaning to make a book for each of our children containing each of our cards . . . so here is one of them . . . a start isn’t it Mr. Mojo? I’m starting this book fully aware that I’ve several other Christmas book yet unfinished . . . but, plugging along at each of them when the mood strikes me! This 1968 card was the 3rd one we sent to friends and family . . . the second while we were living in Germany. I am doing some digging to find a few Christmas photographs to go along with cards one and two . . . I have the greeting cards, but the photos must be in our trunk load of slides!! I am probably going to make this book where it can have pages added as the years roll on and Christmas cards are added one by one. [b]Journaling:[/b] A tiny tree decorated with just a few decorations sits in the slanting light shining through the large window on Christmas morning and a new baby exploring his first Christmas is a picture that we will never forget. There was wrapping paper and ribbons strewn across the parquet floor. Oh my goodness . . . what a wonderful Christmas we had this year! The first Christmas with our first child! We were living in Darmstadt in the pretty old World War II German officers quarters in Lincoln Siedlung at Cambrai Fritsch Kaserne there. Our apartment was one of two on the second floor of the three story building . . . the Seibel’s lived across the hall until Dave went to Vietnam a few months earlier in 1968. The twinkle of the tiny white lights and the pretty German ornaments we had bought really brought the season home to us. We were in the perfect place to find a beautiful tree and wonderful decorations . . . we added a box of red glass Christmas balls and a beautiful golden angel, which was a gift from Aunt Lucille for the top of our tree. Michael was exactly five months old this Christmas and enjoyed the wrapping papers much more than the gifts or the tree. We ate Christmas dinner at the mess hall with the soldiers there and opened out gifts. Michael got a musical ball and a rubber Santa Claus and a high chair. He had just begun to scoot a little bit so we put him on the low flat box but couldn’t figure out just how to get back down and would scoot to the edge and look to us for help! Our stockings were hung from the television with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there! Alas, no mantle so our little $25.00 portable bought from Francis &amp; Ed Hooper became a substitute for the stockings which Aunt Velma made for us!

This year when we send out our Christmas cards it will the 48th card we have sent since our wedding in 1966. For years, I have been meaning to make a book for each of our children containing each of our cards . . . so here is one of them . . . a start isn’t it Mr. Mojo? I’m starting this book fully aware that I’ve several other Christmas book yet unfinished . . . but, plugging along at each of them when the mood strikes me! This 1968 card was the 3rd one we sent to friends and family . . . the second while we were living in Germany. I am doing some digging to find a few Christmas photographs to go along with cards one and two . . . I have the greeting cards, but the photos must be in our trunk load of slides!! I am probably going to make this book where it can have pages added as the years roll on and Christmas cards are added one by one. [b]Journaling:[/b] Aunt Velma sent $5.00 so I could buy Michael this German teddy bear, Ha Hee &amp; Papa Pat sent the rubber squeaking Santa, Christopher Nass gave you the bathtub fish and Santa brought you a new high chair. The photos were made in our living room and also at the Nasses’ house which was on the German economy. Christopher was born in May &amp; Michael in July of 1968 . . . we spent a lot of time with each other while living in Germany and still see each other occasionally.

I’m doing a 30 Days of Thankful book this year with inspiration from Cathy Zielske. [b]Day 05:[/b] “A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” ~ Ecclesiastes 3:8 This wonderful Civil War battlefield is practically in our back door . . . and we are so fortunate to be able to drive here to wander and think on all that occurred here as we walk the fields and pathways. I never tire of seeing the cannons and the beauty of the cemetery with its’ rows upon rows of tombstones for the fallen soldiers from so many states who fought and died here upon Tennessee soil. [b]Day 06:[/b] “Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.” ~ James 5:7 We are gathering Hickory nuts by the gallon buckets at the farm . . . this has been going on for about a month! Today we mailed a box to Ed’s sister, which weighed 9 lbs.! He has been mailing her cracked Hickory nuts for the past three years and she loves them!! Who wouldn’t? Today he brought home this double . . . neither of us have ever seen a double nut of any sort . . . it is the size of a baseball and would probably hurt really badly were it to zing you in the head!!

They taste a bit like pecans but a larger nutmeat and not so easy to crack either!<br /><br />12 comments http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showphoto.php?photo=200939&title=day-05-26amp-3b-06-3a-30-days-of-thankful&cat=502 http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showphoto.php?photo=200939&title=day-05-26amp-3b-06-3a-30-days-of-thankful&cat=502 Wed, 20 Nov 2013 23:10:05 +0000 Day 03 &amp; 04: 30 Days of Thankful <a href="http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/showphoto.php?photo=200365&amp;title=day-03-26amp-3b-04-3a-30-days-of-thankful&amp;cat=502"><img class="imgborder" title="WEB_2013_Gratitude_book_Day03.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/ideas/data/502/thumbs/WEB_2013_Gratitude_book_Day03.jpg" alt="WEB_2013_Gratitude_book_Day03.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: readstoomuch<br /><br />Description}: I am doing a 30 Days of Thankful book this year with Cathy Zielske.

We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 Today is All Saints Day. It is so moving when members of the congregation ring bells for the members of our church who have died in the past 12 months. I love the song which we sang today . . . “For All the Saints Who From Their Labors Rest”. We remembered our wonderful Sunday school teacher for 34 years, Lillian, her daughter Lizbeth &amp; Harry Wagoner, all members of our class today. [b]Day 04:[/b] “It’s leaves were beautiful and its fruit abundant, and in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, and the birds of the heavens lived in its branches, and all flesh was fed from it.” ~Daniel 4:12 I am so grateful to have such a lovely place to walk, especially when I am too lazy walk anywhere else . . . we feel so blessed in this season to have the beautiful fall leaves to enjoy even though it is but for a short time. A couple of times to the mailbox and back to take or pick up the mail is quiet a jaunt!.

[b]Day 01:[/b] Autumn is my favorite season! I think that I revel in the color and warmth of autumn more than in any other season. I love that the humidity is leaving and the warmth of the sun leaves a glow that isn’t as evident in summer. I love the colors of autumn . . . the reds, the yellows, oranges and gold’s! I love the crisp feel to the air and the toasty feel when the sun shines on my face. I love to get out the autumn decorations and move from Halloween into the thankfulness of the month of November . . . and moving from Jack-o-lanterns to the simple abundance of wonderful orange pumpkins scattered about. We love to take trips northward and watch the changes as we move from our home to our favorite New England destinations.

We were so glad to have been able to be with them . . . the children were so very excited to have us in their classrooms . . . and we were do very proud to be with them there too. We ended the day by having the best popsicles I have ever tasted!!! Quiet a celebration for the ending of a wonderful day. I've used a new LayerWorks which will be available really soon . . . another DD products which makes scrapping look like it takes ages, when actually it only takes about an hour! [b]Journaling:[/b] We went to see the grandchildren for grandparents’ day at their school this week. The day was such fun and the kids loved having us with them . . . so proud! For dinner that evening we went to a fabulous little Mexican restaurant and then to a fairly new popsicle place next door . . . what a treat! I had a blackberry popsicle complete with all of the luscious seeds . . . the kids had chocolate, peanut butter-chocolate and Bess had pomegranate! The perfect ending for a perfect day.
