Good Monday morning and is it good to see you! It always is, and so many of you take time to visit and have coffee with me. There is just something about the morning to me. Do you feel that way? I love my morning routine and always have. A new day, a new beginning. Coffee, devotion reading, prayer, it just gives me peace and fills me with gratitude, that I have this opportunity to correct my wrongs from yesterday, do something good today, and begin with a clean slate. So that being said, I will get you a cup of coffee, (a cinnamon roll too if you like. Not healthy, but so good)lol
Last week was a busy week for me. I had something every day and every night it seemed, but since I hadn't been doing much, I enjoyed it all. One of the things I did Saturday night, was go to a Gospel Singing. I was raised on Gospel Music and still enjoy it so much. I hadn't been in a long time, but a friend invited me and I went, and will say what a blessing. There was even a family of bluegrass gospel singers. Do any of you enjoy Gospel Music? I am a lover of all music and yes, can even enjoy an opera. My music of choice is Country.Old country.
Last night I went to Deb and Michael's for supper, along with Amanda, Clay and the kids. Well, Mollie and Andrew are into old Shirley Temple movies! Can you believe that? Clays Grandmother gave them a couple of old ones, and they are hooked. So, yes, that was part of our entertainment. Mollie loves to dance, and she always tries to do what "Temp" is doing. Such fun and I am so blessed to be a part of it.
Well it is the time of the year, at least for me, when you are tired of summer decor and not ready to put fall out. I will wait closer to Labor Day this year. I am so ready to do a few things, but am going to control it.lol When are you going to decorate for fall? I am not an over doer with fall, but nothing is better than mums, gourds, and fall colors, is there? I think I will share a few of last years pictures, then see how I can change it this year.
I just have to tell you a funny. I love my granddaughter in law, Lindsey, so much. The girl is a ray of sunshine. She makes me smile thinking about her. Well, the blog I did on Christmas in July, made her think her grandmother in law, had lost her mind. Curt called Amanda and she was in the car. Christmas music blaring, because Mollie wanted to sing Christmas songs. Amanda apologized to Curt for it. Curt's answer was, "I guess doing Christmas early runs in the family. Mom(that's what they call me) already has her decorations up!" Amanda assured him I did not, that those were last years pictures! I got such a kick out of that! I can just hear Linz saying,"Curt your grandmother has lost her mind" I have gotten a lot of laughs over that one. Love you Linz! At least she reads my blog! I am trying to get her to start one. She has had so many new beginnings the first year of marriage. A new home, a new job, as an oncology nurse, and keeping her home going, because Curt is still in Pharmacy School. I think it would be interesting. Don't you?
I am so glad you came Through My Back Door where life is good. Let's make this the best new day and new week we possibly can.
PS: I want to say Happy Belated anniversary to Deb and Michael, and Amanda and Clay. They share the same anniversary day, the 10th of August. Also a belated Happy Birthday to my friend Anna Ruth Thompson, who had a birthday on the 10th. We laugh and say we know where she spent 2 of her birthdays!(at the weddings)
PSS: Also I want to say happy new beginnings to my friends Carla and Daryl Herron. They are embarking on a new life in Mo. Redoing a house with beautiful view and a stocked fish pond. Join me in wishing them many happy years in their new life.
PSSS: Hopefully I will have more to share soon. I know my blogging hasn't been very exciting lately, and I apologize, but I still enjoy having you visit.
