Twenty-six years ago!

Last night and today I have been reflecting and remembering my life twenty-six years ago. You see, on March 4, 1983, I was
feeling the pangs of labor and anxiously awaiting the birth of my first born. I was scared, excited and wondering all at the same time!!! Am I going to have a boy or girl? Will I get through labor okay? What should I expect? Will he/she be healthy? What will he/she look like? All these questions were continually recycling through my mind. And, finally, at 2:42 a.m. on Saturday March 5, we were blessed with a daughter. Her name? Sarah Jane. I had picked that name out as a teenager when I used to write stories. I loved the name and always used it when I wrote. I then decided that when I got married and had a girl, I would name her that. I could not of asked for a better daughter...she still blesses our lives to this day. Happy Birthday Sarah!

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
