I am collecting fallen pine cones from my back garden these days. I have been waiting for them to start to fall. I'll be using them to make this years tree decorations. I want to try painting them in the next few weeks so I can leave them out to dry in the warm weather. It feels good to have a little christmas project on the go........

I am also thinking about making a couple fall decorations since we don't really get anything like that here. I'd like to welcome the autum season by having a few things in the house and garden. I'll have to see what I can come up with.

Hope you all have a good day today .

There are lots of them around here!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! Guess what? It's going to be hot here today!!!! I bet you didn't see that one coming!!! LOL!!! Just a couple of more days and then we will be back down in the low 80's and high 70's for next week. I can handle that. I actually got 6 hours of sleep last night. It was amazing. I had some screwed up dreams while I was getting that sleep but that's a story for another time. I have a few errands to run this morning and then it will be back home to pay this bills since I never did it yesterday. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Elizabeth wants to go, too, but she's still too young. Wow, the Lord has blessed us with wonderful children.

That is great! I looked at the above websites...sounds like a wonderful experience!

We're supposed to be in the 80s too next week, which is a shock. I can't remember the last time Oklahoma saw 80s for a high in July! But today, our high is ONE HUNDRED AND STINKING ONE DEGREES! Okay...I'll stop griping.

Good morning, all! How are you all doing? I am well. Just sitting here, catching up with things here and trying to relax for a little while this morning.

What is new with all of you? Not a lot going here. Yesterday I worked a double - not something I want to do everyday. I was exhausted last evening. DH had to work last night too, so the kids and I had a sleep over in my bed! We had a good time and I tuckered out by 10:30.

What is everyone going to do today? I have some things planned, but nothing to extensive. EA is at preschool and DS is at daycare, so I should get a lot done, hopefully! I need to get myself motivated soon!

Well, I am off to read some more, have another cup of coffee, then try to get some things done. Talk to you guys later on. Hope you all have a wonderful day. God Bless! Keep smiling!

Fish isn't my favorite, but after cutting out red meat and pork, that leave chicken, turkey and fish. I gotta have meat of some kind!

Besides, it's not too bad blackened in a cast iron skillet using some Zatarain's Blackening Seasoning. Spicy!

Nancy and I haven't been on the Walk to Emmaus yet, but many of our friends and family members have, and they say it's just wonderful.
