Checking In...



Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

I hope you have enjoyed a Glorious Weekend
And pray the week ahead will be filled with Joy

First,
I'd like to thank my bloggy friend, Kris
Who sent me this sweet birthday surprise
My B~Day is tomorrow
But she wanted me to enjoy a few fall items
Over the past couple of weeks
Just an FYI Kris
I only ate 1 of the Belgian chocolate covered Oreos
Since I won't make myself a cake tomorrow
I will eat the other two for my Birthday Treat :)


The next 2 pictures are a little hint
About an announcement
I hope to make in the next couple of weeks


There is always a project
Going on around here


Finally
I have had my red bottle brush bushes planted
In the back yard for about 10 years
Although I've had many spring and early summer blooms
Today I found my very first Fall Bloom


New life makes me smile

Have a blessed week

Fall Fun



Hello Sweet Friends

I'm so happy that you decided to stop by
Fall has arrived in Arizona
It's been in the 90's for a couple of weeks
It is so much more tolerable than the months
We have endured with temps over 100-115+

Sometimes I wonder if you ever get tired of me saying
How much I live for My 3 K's
They make my heart sing
And I'm so very grateful for the time I get to spend with them


Lots of crafting took place during fall break
Little K~Baby working so intently on her fall project


K~Bel as well


I love having so many items for them to choose from
Looks like I may need to refill a few glitters


Each of the girls made a fall ornament


They love spending time creating
At the dining room table


They each made a necklace as well
Lots of colorful beads to choose from
And, of course, a K for each


Miss K~Bug
The one who started it all, over 12 years ago
Adore These K's

Praying you are having happy days
Making memories
And loving those around you

Blessings to All

Rainy Day



Good Sunday Afternoon
Sweet Friends

Being awoken this morning with the sound of rain
Was a welcomed surprise
Here in the desert southwest
We get afternoon thunder storms
However, we rarely have full days of steady rain

Yet, today that is what we have had
During, what I thought would be a break in the clouds
My kiddo and I ran to the big box store
Let's just say that
A deluge of rain met us walking out and I got soaked
It was almost Fun

It slowed again which allowed me to get to the grocery store
And is raining now as I type

I did enjoy heading outside for a few shots in the garden


The Mexican Petunias I planted last week are LOVING the rain


One of my pink Vinca soaking it in


And the white Vinca settling nicely around some fall d├ęcor


My little scarecrows along the front walk are drenched
But they are enjoying playing in the rain ... just like kids


Since it has been a rainy day
I decided to do a bit of card making
This mess is probably why I don't do it more often


A friend gifted me with some 'new to me' stamps
Reorganizing and finding space is a fun job on a rainy day

My prayer for you is that:
You have been blessed with Joy and Rest this day
And that the week ahead is Beautiful!
