Remembering...

Today is Sarah's birthday...my oldest daughter. She was born some twenty odd years ago. To me, it just does not seem that long ago! I remember going to the hospital at 5:00 pm on a Friday afternoon and having the doctor tell me that I should go home because it was not time yet. And, she was already 3 weeks overdue!!! But, after much discussion, I stayed! And, she was born at 2:42 am Saturday morning. What a wonderful experience!!! ( So wonderful that I ended up having 6 children!) I remember being excited and scared all at the same time. It was a wonderous time, one I am so glad God blessed me with. You just can't explain the joy that you feel when you first see and get to hold YOUR baby. Back then, we stayed in the hospital for 3 full days. It gave me plenty of time to get to know her before heading home to start our life together as a family...mom, dad and baby girl. I would not trade that time, that experience for anything! Happy Birthday Sarah. I love you!!!

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.



September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
