Hello sweet friends, I certainly hope your week has been going well. It is time for an update from the home front, you know the everyday living stuff. I realized it had been four months since a “this and that “ post and it is time to catch you up. Alert: There might be a few family photos. Be sure to read to the end for exciting news!
Our July and August went by so quickly with projects around our home. I know many of you have inquired about the dining room. Hopefully, a reveal will be coming soon. Other projects are underway that I haven’t even told you about. But, the best times were spent with our precious granddaughter.
A unplanned small project happened in August when we purchased an old-time picnic table and placed it in our side yard adjoining a wooded area. It has been an enjoyable addition and we have a few ideas for the future.

I serve as the ladies ministry director at my church and we meet once a month to share a meal, fellowship, and a mission project.

Twenty six of our ladies put together 100 gift bags to be distributed.
Butch and I hosted a family birthday party for my precious Daddy who turned 88 on October 6. He is a treasure to our family and is loved by all who know him. The great-grandchildren were excited to help him open gifts.
You all have been so sweet to send emails and comments when we have been featured on Southern Lady Magazine’s social media page. There have been six features this year, with the most recent being one of my Christmas tablescapes. I know this is very small, but I still love opening an issue and seeing one of my pics. Thank you all for your very kind remarks.
Look closely at Ella Mae’s t-shirt, can you read it? One summer evening in August, she and her parents arrived with her wearing this shirt. I am so excited to announce that Ella Mae is going to be a big sister. Late March we will be welcoming another little granddaughter!
