Fall Preview

Mother Nature has given us a taste of Fall the last two days. Perfect weather. This morning, the grands are out playing.

No church for us today. The boy has been a little sick so while he is without fevers and the weather is cool and crisp, I will sit and watch them this morning.

Danny has battled the rain all week and now the wind. The orchard needs spraying for mites and scab. With the storm brewing South of us, it's crucial that he get coverage on the trees before the rains come.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday.

Of Course I Will!!

So I told you my Granddaughter started Pre-K this year (with me kicking and screaming all the way,I might add!).

Her mom said it was her turn to provide snacks for the class and asked me if I would do it.


So I asked the teacher when was snack time. Her response,
"We have snack time around 2:15. You can drop them by the office if you like or come to the room (just make sure you sign in the office first and get a visitor's pass). Thanks!!!"

So what do you think I did?!?!
The Boy and I got our visitors pass and went right to her room!

It was great!

Little Package was also able to come home from school and have supper with us.

See how silly we were after school.

Thank you Lord for snack time and stolen after school moments!

Just in case you didn't know,
I've called my granddaughter Little Package since she was born. She was premature and just did weigh 4 pounds at birth.

Me and The Boy

It has rained off and on here all month. The rain has been good. No irrigation for the big light bill to pay at the end of the month!
Thank you Lord for both!

So this morning The Boy and I went for a ride around the farm since the hot sticky South Georgia weather seemed to be a little milder.

A Little Sadness

These lazy days of Summer are passing fast.

I am sad.

My granddaughter has started school for the first time. I know it is a season for "letting go" but as Max Lucado put it in his book "Six Hours One Friday", "I gave her up. Not much. And not as much as I will have to in the future. But I gave her up as much as I could today."

I read that for the first time a few weeks ago. I awoke in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep due to the heaviness of my heart. I knew she would be starting school soon.

So the time has come. Summer as she has known it is over. Our life with her has changed forever. I know there are more good times to come.....but....I'm still just a little sad.

Summer Storm

This afternoon, I ran down to the corner store (7miles away in the country) to pick up a pizza. I was amazed to find these low clouds so close to my house. What an awesome sight!

68 degrees?!

Can't believe we are being blessed with this cool morning! I'm taking advantage of it. I just can't make my mind up where to do it at...front porch looking out into the orchard...back porch, looking out at the pond & grape vines.

I know the coolness will not last long, so...I better get to it.
