Hmmm...what to say. :) My heart and mind have been on overload for a while now. I sit down and think of posting, but just can't seem to put words to "paper". So, I'll do a this n' that...they're easy enough, right? :)
Please pray for my husband today (specifically this evening)...no details needed, God knows what it's for....thank you!
A couple of weeks ago, we had a nice 2 day getaway...much needed and very fun.
Trusty Starbucks!! :)
Lighthouse at Ponce Inlet...
This is the only way leaves change in central Florida in the "Fall"...
usually we have to wait until January. :)
Special thanks for Kim for coming over and playing "cookie decorating" with me. :)
This was scrumptious...
Pioneer Woman's Chicken Cacciatore (my way, lol)
...with the delectible sauce! Oh yum!!!
So was this...
Pasta Fagioli - I made so much I shared 4 jars with 2 neighbors! :)
You can find this on my cooking blog... :)
I'm trying to craft, though I've been out of sorts with creativity today...I did manage to make a really cute "thing" for my best friend...and even one for me... :) Can't show pictures yet, because I haven't given it to her! But, wow, they are really adorable!!!
I've been soaking in God's Word and it feels so wonderful...thank you Lord for blessing us with your Word, that we can go to it for wisdom, guidance, comfort, strength and hope.
I miss this boy...
Things have taken a strange turn with our sweet elder friend Mary. Please pray for her, and for us in finding out how to best be there for her.
I've been craving Pumpkin "stuff" lately...it's the Fall thing...even though it's hot and humid and I can't decorate my front porch with pretty pumpkins because they'll rot in 3 days...sigh...I do love Florida though. Wanna know why?
Because it's the end of October, ..
and guess what we did last weekend? :)
(how about that "boat hair"??)
Gliding down the river....glassy water at sunset...beautiful!
(For more laughs, please pop over to Kim's blog for her Friday Funnies meme)
Last year we went on a Fall Vacation...we couldn't take our precious little punkin', Stormie with us. Sooooo, we brought her "alternate personality" along... Ok, I did say "we" but truly, my husband had no part in this....he was just a pawn in my odd little photography scheme, lol.
You might think this is funny....OR you might think we are strange (which wouldn't be too off base).
"PLEEEEAASE can I have a cookie?"...
"Dad, why are you workin' on vacation? Can we go out and play?"
"Hey Dad! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!"
"Wow...I love this sunroof thingie!"
"I am the master climber! I have conquered Tallulah Gorge!"
"Thanks for the chip Dad"
"Wow...hiking makes me hungry!"
"Whew, I'm worn out. Think I'll snuggle up with Dad on the couch"
"Can we go outside?"
"Yea! I love playing in the leaves...this is way cool Mom!"
"Thanks for letting me read your Bible...I forgot mine"
"Do I look cute? Or is that waterfall sticking out of the top of my head?"
"Man! That's a long trail...and all uphill...can you carry me?"
"What? No seatbelt? I'm calling PETA!!!"
"This is so cool...it's like playing a video game"
"Wow, Mom. Is that the 'Big City'?"
"No dogs allowed? Um, you coulda sat outside. I hope you bring me a chicken sandwich"
