Summer is over


   My favorite time of the year is here. I don't know where the summer has gone, but I am glad that it is over and the cooler weather has arrived. I am looking forward to maybe seeing scenery like the picture later this month. It has been a busy summer in more ways then one. 
   We have to be thankful for every day that we are given because you never know what tomorrow will bring. I have been missing in action for a few days because of minor surgery requiring stitches. It just means that I am limited to what I can do until the stitches comes out. I hate not being able to be my independent self. I like doing things for myself without having to ask for help. My oldest grandson is great in helping with what I needed after he got out of school such as taking out the trash for the trash man. He was Johnny Frye and he and Cleo got to lead off the Pony Express 5 K Run and lead the little ones and their run around the park.
  The boxes are for a craft show coming up this           next month made by my grandson and daughter in law.. It is a bigger one then we have ever done before so it will be a new experience. It is my first of having to send pictures of my embroidery Just venturing a little out of my comfort zone. Two of my new Halloween tea towels along with another horse tea towel have already gone to a new home. . I am about to finish my third one this week. Thankfully I can still do that while I am recuperating. The hands have to stay busy. The kids are already talking about Halloween and the month just got started. Later this month my hubby and I will celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary. We never thought we would make it this far, but with God's help and prayers we will. Prayers always seem to help get you through some of the toughest things that you have to face.  We have been in the 40's in the morning and then warm up nicely in the afternoon. I am hoping for a mild winter, but they say it won't be. We will just have to wait and see what happens. 
   I pray for those on the East Coast that the hurricane won't be as bad as they have predicted. Mother Nature hasn't been to kind to us this summer. Take care and I promise to be back.

I am sorry to hear you have stitches, Shirley. I hope you heal quickly and fully. 53 years is a long time to be married. I am happy that hubby is still here to celebrate with you. I know it has been a tough few years for him.
Love how your grandchildren are such a big part of your life- ours are, too. Aren't we lucky? xo Diana

53 is so very blessed!
My son in carpentry school is wondering how your grandson gets the wood bent in the bow like that? :)

I'm sorry to hear about your stitches, but it sounds like you are doing pretty good. That is good news! And it sounds like you are still able to do your stitchery, so that's great, too. I'm with you on enjoying cooler weather and hoping that winter isn't too bad. Take care and it was good to read your post! ~Cheryl

Hope you are feeling better. I like fall too but spring is my favorite season. We're bracing for bad weather this weekend; just hope it's not like Hurricane Hugo!

Bless your heart! You always manage to put a positive spin on things!
Texas doesn't have the hard winters like some of the country does. We just have to survive the summers! 40 degrees sounds heavenly!
