Reach out to all that are still here and love them, hold them, touch them......while you can!
Rest in peace, mom. You will always be in my heart.

I'm linking with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. It's been a while since I've been able to join her.

Goodness, what a brisk fall day. It was difficult to drag myself out from under the covers this morning. Windows were open last night so that we could listen to the "critters" and the soft breezes.....well, even the "critters" were too chilly to chirp this morning!
This Labor Day is the first, ever, that we haven't had a get-together or a project to at least begin. Hubby purchased a new I-Pod for him and a Nook for my for my upcoming birthday....so as you might guess, the day was spent putzing and playing with the new toys. The search is on for a handy dandy cover for the Nook Color. Does anyone have any recommendations? He is the computer savy one in this family - and thankfully he enjoys figuring these gadgets out!
What did you do on this Labor Day? Hope everyone enjoyed!!!

It's a cloudy, overcast day with anticipated rain in the near future. Yesterday was spent removing the potted flowers from the deck and washing the deck. Today, after mowing the field and grass, I'm thinking the potted tomato plants will become history. They are looking rather sickly. I thought I was being diligent about watering - maybe it's just time. For some reason it's just a sad feeling. Fall is always my favorite time of year...that being said, just not ready for summer to go quite yet. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Call me crazy - but for that moment it time, it felt so good to be carefree! What is the last "carefree" adventure you took?

What are you plans for the upcoming July 4th holiday? (I love having my family together and even enjoy the chaos of trying to bed and feed the masses!)
Happy 4th of July to everyone!

A special thank you to all of our troops serving our country and protecting our freedoms, and a silent reflection for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. A special remembrance to those who have served and are no longer with us. And our thoughts to the families of all.

At least the inside is looking like springtime. Just tucked the winter snowman dishes away yesterday and brought out the sunflowers. So I'll just keep my "rose colored" glasses on for a few more weeks until spring really DOES arrive!
Happy Wednesday everyone!!

I love music, have the radio/stereo/music on television most of the time. Headphones when mowing in the summer, IPod when working in the yard. All types of music and flavors. Music that reminds me of days gone by, high school events, the first love, songs that remind me of family members long gone...but the one song to which I have no emotional ties and absolutely just pulls at my heart strings,and I cannot control the tears,.........is "In The Arms of the Angels".
Do you have such a song? What is it about certain songs that do this to us?

However, yesterday during the midst of things, I received this pictures and it just captured how I felt at the time. I hope everyone who got snow has recovered and can now enjoy the beauty! Here's hoping this weekend's flurries are minor.
Oh just a few more weeks until spring!!!

The temperature is perfect. The fresh fallen snow is absolutely breathtaking, light and fluffy. The air is fresh. Branches on the trees are laden with sparkling jewels. Such a lovely way to start the day!
These opportunities don't present themselves very often, and when they do, it refreshes the soul and renews the spirits. I am thankful, very thankful!
Our book club met at our home last evening and watched "The Mistress of Spices" on DVD. Most of us had read the book as well. It was a great evening, filled with fellowship, laughter and tasteful delights made, of course, with spices! I think you would enjoy this book written by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
Happy Tuesday to all!

Okay ladies, I'm looking for comments on this post. I am in the process of picking our new lighting for my kitchen/dining room. I took down a 4 ft. section track lighting that was old and here when we bought this house. I had hoped to find another type of lighting that would provide lots of light for the food pantry and counters (without have to do additional work on the ceiling). Hubby thinks an 8 ft. section of mono-rail lighting would work. I'm wondering if that isn't a bit much. I am such a visual person! And I just can't convince him to buy it and hold it up while I decide whether I like it or not.....wonder why? Does anyone have any suggestions/comments?
Thanks in advance.

Have you ever had one of those wonderfully lazy days...two really productive days in a row and the best intentions for today. However, after sleeping in, fixing a light brunch, the hubby and I decided we were not going to be very motivated today. And I might add, we've been extremely successful! Cleaned out emails, organized files on the computer, send a few notes - all while snuggled under the afghan next to the fire and watching television.
We ended up pulling movies from the cabinet and are now watching "Mountain Men" with Charleston Heston and Brian Keith. Normally, it isn't a movie I would select. My memories of Charleston Heston involved a chariot. There have been a few entertaining moments. Both hubby and I have decided our fathers would have loved this movie. As a little girl, I spent many evenings watching John Wayne movies with my dad.
When my daughter comes home, we always have at least one "girls day" where we pick a classic...Thornbirds, Gone With the Wind, North and South, Dirty Dancing, P.S. I Love You, Coco Channel, etc. This year it was the Godfather trilogy.
Do you have any special movie memories?
