A feeling in the air

Do you feel it? It's like you're sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for something to happen. Excited, nervous, wondering how everything will get done, anticipation of all that comes with the Christmas season. Are you ready for it? Ready or not, here it comes!!:D

Changing seasons

Thanksgiving has come and gone. I think the weather is trying to gear us up for the Christmas season. It's cold and rainy today.



Gone are the days of taking walks without freezing or getting blown away. But only for a while.



Soon the warm, spring weather will be here with all the beautiful flowers and green grass!! I truly cannot wait!! Winter is not my friend. :)



Soon I can use my new porch to sit and talk to....hey, all my friends are on Facebook! I guess, I'll just have to take the computer out on the porch and "talk" to them.:) No really. I have lots of friends that I would love to have come and sit and gab with....



And watch beautiful sunsets with. Although, I think this is a sunrise and that's too early for me to gab with friends. :) Boy, am I rambling.



But for now, I choose to cuddle on the couch with my hubby and watch a good movie with the tree glowing in the background.....



And look at all the "white stuff" from inside where it's warm.

Harvest time.....


Harvest time is here in the country. We've been seeing alot of these and tractors lately. I've decided I'd love to try to drive or at least ride in one of these or a tractor.:)

We're saying goodbye to the corn.:( You've been a wonderful wind barrier......
And a beautiful subject for pictures... See ya in a couple of years!:)

Porch Progress

As you can see, the porch is coming along nicely. I'm lovin' it!!


Don't know if the roof will be done before winter. With David's new jobs hours, it's hard for him to find time to do alot of extra. He stays pretty busy.
Thanks to both of my guys for their hard work on getting the boards on so it could actually look like a porch. We will definitely enjoy it next year.

You all have inspired me

Since I've gotten 7 comments on my last post, I decided to update! Sad that such a few make me happy!:) But ANYWAY, the porch is coming along slowly but surely.

I even have them working nights.....


Well, at least til dusk....or maybe they worked by the lights of the living room.:)


Mixing the quickrete in the dark proves to interesting...
This is as far as they've gotten so far. Don't ask about the chair stuck in it cuz I don't know the reason.:) Hoping to get to work on it tomorrow.....hoping....

Fallish porchy post

Well, the old porch is busted and work is underway for the new one. I'm sooo EXCITED!!! Can you tell!!

This are a few of the "muscular" helpers we had. They carried wood and hauled away rocks and did whatever they were asked. Thanks guys...


The porch to be :)

Kitty pictures always sneak into my posts.:) This little one was hiding behind the books on the shelf.

Fall has arrived. It can be seen outside.......

and sprinkled throughout my house. This is a fun fallish hat I found at Goodwill a long time ago.

Gotta have the scarecrows, leaves, and candles!

Last, but not least, pumpkins. I found these at the Dollar General last year. I think they were a dollar and I might have got them on sale!!


There will be more fall stuff to come....if I decide to post it...and more porch story. Happy Fall, ya'll!!!!

Happy Blog Anniversary to me!!


It's been a year since I started blogging. Doesn't seem like it though. I've been a little bad about writing anything lately, but I'm gonna try to do better since cooler weather is coming and more time will be spent inside. There is too much to catch up on so I will have to just post random pics of summer every now and then. Hope I still have a few readers. None the less, I enjoy doing it when I have the time and also, I enjoy reading others. Facebook is fun, but blogging is more personal, I think. I'm having trouble with Windows letting me see pics so it takes a looonnng time to put them on here! Maybe that's why I haven't blogged in a while. I'll leave you with one and hopefully more to follow as soon as I figure this thing out.
MY daughter RODE this thing and LIKED it!!!! I think I probably would have had a heartattack!!!:)

HELLO!

Long time no blog! I haven't updated in a while, obviously. Not that I haven't wanted to! I just don't know where to start since I am so far behind! Not that I have anyone still reading.:) Hope your summer is going splendidly well! I will write a real post soon...I promise! Blog rule #1: You must always have a picture with your post. Not really, but I will cuz I want too!















Wouldn't it be nice to be this lazy! Such cuteness!!

When storms come...

It's been a little stormy around here in more ways than one. My Grandma Dwigans went to be with Jesus yesterday. She went very quickly....within hours. We are now in the storm...dealing with the lose a loved one who is very dear to us. She was a wonderful christian lady. Always would say what she thought about things. Even still had just gotten her license renewed recently at the age of 94!




Eventually, the storm will clear. The hurt will still be there....




But we have the knowledge that she is in heaven waiting on us. She is where she has been waiting to go for so long. She is with grandpa whom she hasn't seen in 20 years. She is with Jesus. She was a real prayer warrior. She had alot of spunk.:) If you knew her, you would know what I am talking about.



To me, this picture looks like heaven shining through the clouds. What do you think?


Sign of a promise in a rainbow...


Hope of a better tomorrow....



Grandma, we'll miss you. I regret we didn't visit as often as we should.....unfortunately, we can't go back. You were always so understanding. See you in heaven!
