My question is wow where does the time go? I can't believe it has been over 1 1/2 months since I wrote anything on my blog. Life has really been busy for me over the last month or so...it naturally is but for some reason this year it has been particularly busy.
As you see from the last post, we got our house on the market, and that is a experience all in itself. As any of you that have done this knows, it is alot of work to keep your home "show ready". So that has taken up some of my time, not to mention having to leave the house each time someone wants to come and look at it. Oh well, that is part of the process I guess. Everyone keeps asking....nothing has happened yet with the house, but we have had a abundance of second and third time lookers. Guess people are being cautious about spending that kind of money so they want to get the biggest bang for their buck. Can't say I blame them. So if and when it sells, you will be one of the first to know.
I also have started back to work full time and that has taken a adjustment...the early hours and early nights....so therefore my evenings are more structured and blogging doesn't always fit into the plan.
This is the first weekend we have been home in a month. Three weekends we had a unexpected trip to Missouri for my dil's mothers funeral. It was such a shock and sad time. She was only 52. I think our dil was glad we came down, just wish there had been more we could have done for her. She is such a sweetie and glad to have her as a part of our family.
The next two weekends were spent in Williamsport Pa, for the Little League World Series. It just so happened that both my hometown team, Russellville, Ky....the Logan County team made it as well as hubby's team from San Antonio...so of course we had to go and root our boys on. We had a great time, seeing old friends and making new ones. Although neither of our teams won the title we were so proud of them and the way they represented us. Our hats off to the parents and coach's of these young men. What a wonderful experience for them to carry into adulthood.
Our weather here has turn almost fall like, and I welcome it. It is by far my favorite season. It has my mind reeling with all kinds of things I want to cook and bake....I love the days spent out going to craft fairs, fall festivals, apple picking, hayrides, shopping for the perfect pumpkin. Is there anything about the fall NOT to like. God blesses us with wonderful warm and cozy colors to set the perfect backdrop for this time of year. Simply gorgeous!
I have also been reading like a mad woman...I have read some wonderful books written about the Amish...my favorite...and have a list of about 6 more to buy...both Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brunstetter have new ones out. Woo Hoo! So might try to hit a bookstore over the weekend to pick them up, if not...here I come Amazon.
Well that is a brief snippet of what has been going on with me...with alot of little mundane sprinkled in there...but overall just real busy and feeling real blessed. God is so good!
Heading out this morning to get me a manicure which is in great need as lately typing has become a major chore....so going to take care of that before much else gets done.
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Happy Labor Day, spent with those you love and capturing sweet moments that will linger as wonderful memories with your family and friends.
Till next time,
Hugs to all!
