With Christmas only a week away -decided this would be my final post for 2016. If you are like me there is still last minute things to accomplish and folks to see.
Will be stopping by to visit each of you in the coming two weeks.
The photos, the words, and the precious visits here have kept me inspired, uplifted and feeling connected to something larger than my tiny space in this world. Thank You.
May you each find special joy this Christmas season...Emmanuel - God with Us!

Over the years I have sampled a variety of drop, shaped , decorated, bar and no bake types.
Some have been so complicated that they may be a couple of days in the making. Others so simple that one can stir them up and have them ready in a short few minutes.
As I and my family have aged some of the fancy favorites have been exchanged for old fashioned goodness.
If anyone wants the recipe -let me know. Will be glad to share.
Have a blessed week!

Here are a few bits of wisdom I have learned over six decades.
Life may bring changes but some things remain the same.
There is nothing like a lovely walk in the woods to clear one's thoughts.
So there you are sweet friends...a few pearls of wisdom. Bet you have some too.
Have a great day.
P.S. Christmas is only four weeks away. My how this year has flown by.

|Amish Farm near our home|
This vista seems like a good place to start. Very simple and serene.
|A country barn|
Here is a lovely spot to make a stop.
|A pasture field|
Don't you love that butternut color? It really seems to pop!
Those two seem to be enjoying this gorgeous day.
How about the blue sky?
Don't those clouds look peaceful?
|A fence row|
Nothing like fall colors to brighten a fence row.
Love this wooded glade. We will be sure to return here.
So glad you joined us on our country ride. Hope you left all your cares behind.
Have a blessed week.

Lovely colors are starting to make a show.
The hills seem to be changing before our very eyes.
Indoors some simple homey foods are starting to cook.
Nothing like a wonderful chuck roast with a few carrots, potatoes, celery, onion and a clove of garlic simmering to make one's appetite come alive.
Then to satisfy that sweet tooth how about a few oatmeal raisin cookies with a nice tall glass of milk. ( Hmm no wonder my jeans are getting a bit tighter !)
Well best get back outdoors and enjoy the last lovely flowers. They seem to be holding on before that final frost takes them away.
So glad you stopped to visit and catch up on all the fall happenings.
Hope you will share some of yours too.

Hope you would join me tonight in lifting up prayers and thoughts for the folks who have lost loved ones, their homes and places of business.
Thank you & God Bless

that my little friend will be finding a warmer spot to huddle...
gathering wildflowers will be exchanged for finding the perfect fallen leaves...
and there will be more time spent in the studio.
By the way I think Shelby doesn't need a reminder. She is certainly prepared for those cooler nights and shorter days.
Hope all of you are getting ready too.

|MISTY MORNING - by JULIE FORD OLIVER|
A photo taken close to my home inspired this gorgeous painting. Julie had seen it on one of my previous posts and asked if she could paint it.
To say the least she did a gorgeous job. What an amazing work of art. The cross in the sky says it all "keep Looking Up".
God Bless You friend.
May everyone have a wonderful week.

Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this ...
We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
The garden in June is always a treat. Peonies unfold and dance in the breeze... Irises too! ...
