What would I do without being able to paint? I am so thankful for this gift from God that I have been blessed with, and that I was able to develop over the years. Having had surgery on my left … Continue reading

I love foggy mornings and this Friday morning was so foggy, I immediately thought of my favorite Carl Sandberg poem “Fog” It was in my very first poetry book ” The Golden Picture Book of Poems To Read and To Learn” copyright 1955, and I cherish it.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
Well, never in my wildest dreams would I ever have thought I would learn how to shoot a shotgun! But yes, that is me at the Gator Skeet and Trap Club in Gainesville Florida. And wow – it was fun! My daughter’s sorority had a father daughter weekend and the main event was going to the Skeet Club and shooting “trap”. The girls had a blast (no pun intended) and at the end of the session the instructor came up to me and convinced me, with much prodding from my daughter and husband , to try shooting. I was not too enthused but very surprised to find that I actually liked this sport! We now plan to do more of this and are currently looking for a club near us. Who knew!! LOL!
Finally we have some wonderful fall weather! I am loving it – I can open up the house and enjoy the outdoors. Just hearing the birds chirping and listening to the leaves rustling makes me feel alive!
I have also been working on my Christmas items to hopefully sell next month and in December. Unfortunately our craft show was a little slow for me in October. I just sold a few things and not one Halloween gourd. Oh well, I sent them off with a friend that has a store & hopefully they will sell.
Enjoy the day!!
this is something that takes me lots of determination . . . going outside and experiencing the dreadful heat index of 100 plus degrees and the high, high, high humid weather and just knowing before hand how gross I am going to feel in minutes when I depart from the air conditioning.
But for the past three days that is what my hubby and I have been doing – just for three gourd plants. This all started when a few weeks ago I spotted some gourds spouting up in our grass. I just could not bear the thought of the lawn mower running over them so I very carefully uprooted them and placed them in nice little peat pots. They began to flourish so we decided they needed a proper place to grow and bear fruit – so we cleared a little plot in the back yard and built a trellis. I am hopeful they will continue to grow and I will have a nice gourd harvest around December. Here is a look at what we did-
