Some Signs of Autumn

Yesterday was a very beautiful day.
Living in the South, you have to watch
for signs that Autumn is here...

like acorns falling from the trees.

Then you can play with them as much as you want.

Another sign is...

Season's Greetings are shown all over the place.

So you get the idea?
Let me show you one more sign...

You might see a decoration like this sitting around my house somewhere.

I couldn't pass them up. They are so cute.

the BEST THING about Autumn or anytime of the year...!!!

You guessed it! MY GRANDDAUGHTERS!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Veterans Day yesterday.
I would like to salute my father
for his service in the Army.
I also give my gratitude to all the others that serve
and help keep this Country free. 

I would like to join Mary at The Little Red House
for Mosaic Monday (glad you are safe
and sound, Mary, after that terrible storm, Sandy).
I will also join Lisa from
Lisa Chaos for Macro Monday.
Both are awesome sites to visit.

Here's to your health!

It's just me...

It's just me
proud as can be
Happy as a lark
Spry with a spark.

Just playing with my camera to have
something for Mosaic Monday; HOWEVER,
had to cancel due to Hurricane Sandy.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Mary.
Saying prayers and sending good thoughts and vibes!!

 To link with Lisa at Lisa's Chaos,
I've added a photo of my
granddaughter Doodles' art.
She loves being creative.

Way to go Doodles!

Here's to your health!

Tea for Three

I just absolutely love Sundays
with my girls.

We started off this Sunday
with tea.

Little Bit and Doodles actually made Koolaid.

Doodles got out their little tea set.

While Little Bit made the popcorn.

Tea time was great....
but we are bored and wanted some adventure.

So off we go for a walk.
It's a BEAUTIFUL day!!
I love this time of year, because we get about
"15 minutes of Fall!"
That's a sarcastic remark...I guess you noticed.
So when we get days like this, it's time to be outside somewhere!

We had to stop and fix our shoe...

Looked at the dog prints in the cement...

Stopped and smelled the flowers...

Checked out the dead worms on the sidewalk...

And finally made it to our favorite burger place for some chicken.
You caught that, right? Burger place for chicken.

My granddaughters are funny. They want try beef yet.

Chicky's and fries, please.

As you can see, my hair is still colored red from 
the Halloween Party the night before.
I went as a saloon girl (you know, like Miss Kitty).

Then we are OFF for other adventures.
Like taking pictures of flowers.
I let Doodles use my camera for whatever she wanted to
take a picture of. 
So as not to bore you, I will only show a few...

We were across the street from this, but it caught her attention.

The Blue Angels were in the neighborhood. When
they flew over I grabbed the camera and
took this shot.
No time to prepare, but thought it was pretty nice.

So we made it to the park and finished watching
the Angels fly over
OK, I'll not bore you with anymore...
It was awesome to see them fly over.

Then we enjoyed the playground.
As they were coming down the slide, the static
electricity made their hair stand on end.

They said they were even shocking each other.
Oh, the giggles and the screams!!

Big sister helping little sister with her shoe.
Then off with more fun...

Then we head home...Such a great day.

When their mother came to pick them up,
she asked how their day was,
and the reply was...

I dearly love my girls.

I would like to join Terri from Artful Affirmations,
Martha from Martha's Favorites, and
  These ladies set the most gorgeous tables
and their tea sets are to die for!

Join us for tea, want you?

Here's to your health!

Please remember our East Coast families
that are going through a terrible storm
right now. Keep them all in your prayers.

SAVE THE TA-TAS - Breast Cancer Awareness

It's such an awful truth, 
but each and every one of us
have either known someone
or know someone now
that is struggling with this
HORRIBLE disease.
Or it may be you.

I have a friend that has fought it...

She has been cancer free for a few years now.
BUT when she has to go back for checkups,
she's always a little apprehensive,
holding her breath until she gets the results.

I also have a friend
that found out two years ago
that she was at Stage 0
and just knew she had caught it in time.
Today she is at Stage 2.
She is doing all that she is told to do,
and gets sick from the treatments,
but she will continue to fight.

This friend is the other Grandmother to my granddaughters.
Because of this, they find opportunities to collect money
to donate to help fight Breast Cancer.

Prayers are always welcomed.

Prayers are certainly needed!

I'm linking with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

Lift Your Mood and Let Optimism Rule!

Drink your tea slowly
as it is
the axis on which
the world earth
revolves -
without rushing
toward the future.

The most important thing

is to enjoy your life -

to be happy -

it's all that matters. 

~ Audrey Hepburn

Life your mood and let optimism rule!

Here's to your health!  

I would like to join Martha and Terri for tea.

Here's a Few Words

Here's a few words I can use to sum up
I've learned about life:

It Is What It Is
and it goes on...


I enjoy my granddaughters very much.

I would like to join Mary for Mosaic Monday.

Here's to your health!!
