Apple Season

Once again it is apple season in our part of the world. The varieties are many. There are some excellent types for sauce and pie.  Others make a great snack. These pictured are Honey Crisp.  They are delicious - sweetly tart and very crunchy.   Sliced and served with a spoonful of  peanut butter makes them a serious treat! watercolor sketch      Also they are a fun subject to paint from life.  Not necessarily easy for me but a wonderful challenge. This month we have been studying the book of Genesis at Church.  Today some one mentioned Eve and the apple.  Unfortunately this is a misconception.  If one cares to to take a moment they would find the Bible says fruit.  That could mean a peach, a pear, a fig or many other types of fruits.  Possibly not even a fruit that we know today.    "When the woman saw that the fruit was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom she took some and ate it.  She also gave some to her husb


The first full day of autumn came our way today.   The weather has cooled down a bit but the landscape still is holding on to summer. Even the grass continues to grow.   Generally by this time of the year the mowing has slowed down but not this season.   So the calendar may say it is autumn but we are still enjoying summer a few more days. Hope everyone has a beautiful week. Hugs Debbie


In this life we all face storms.  Some are more difficult than others.   Like many of you I have had my share. What has always carried me through is knowing that God is not absent when the winds begin to howl and fear grips the heart.  "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Hebrews 13:5b (NIV) This week once again we have seen another storm hit our shores in the U.S.   Florence is at the time of this writing bringing devastation to the Carolinas.  There are several friends I blog with that live in the path of this hurricane.  Some of you reading this also have family and friends living along the coast that are in danger of losing their lives and homes. Please take a moment with me to "Look Up" and pray for their safety. Thank You! Hugs Debbie P.S.  I used to play this hymn at my church.   It comes to mind at this time.   Hope you will enjoy it.

Internet Connection

Due to internet connection being down at home was unable to post last evening. Sending a quick hello from my computer at work. May everyone have a blessed week.   Hope to be back to posting soon. Hugs Debbie


A lovely foggy morning arrived Saturday. The distant hills were covered in mist. As the sun rose it cast long shadows. This big butterfly was just waking up to a new day.  Is he not beautiful? These morning glories were getting prepared for his visit. Shelby was more than happy to watch the sun rise. .. And I was delighted to see this beautiful sky as Saturday came to a glorious end. Thank you for stopping to visit.   I hope everyone's Saturday was wonderful. Hugs Debbie
