My corner shelf holds many of my "treasures". A picture of my blessing, a tea set and decorative salad dressing decanter saved for me by relatives long gone. Oh my Mother's cool shades from the 60"s.
On top are things from my hon's family that they used until the 50 or 60's. Isn't it all so Cool!!!

I woke to the sound of something unusual. What was it? I knew I had heard it before, but could quite make it out since it was so long ago and came very lightly.
Oh, it's got louder. Now I knew .... this sound was a reason to go back to sleep. It was a sound of happy flowers and lettuce. It was RAIN. Very softly, then getting stronger. I
It came and went all day, into the night and again the next day. It was an inconvenience, but a much awaited one.
Now it feels like "FALL" is here. I actually have to stay in, not because I have something to do, but there's not much to get into on a day like this.

Since I have so much spare time, NOT, I try to keep a book around, just in case. Sometimes if I time my moments just right, it happens. I get a few minutes before I fall asleep to read and relax. Do any of you like to read? What do you enjoy? I'm not into the romance stuff, like most women I know. Usually, a light historical fiction about the pioneer women that we came from encourages me.

Well, I brought October to a close with as much Fall harvest as I had time for. Cabbage, ham, cornbread and pumpkin cake. Now it's time to get ready for Thankgiving. My second favorite holiday of the year. I used to love November because it was my birthday month, but now I just love it for all the feelings it brings to mind. I love traditions, though, I'm not good at getting my little family to join anything, but the food part. What traditions do you hold near? Do the memories make you laugh or just sit and wonder. I'd love to know what you do!

I got my first follower and tried to enter some giveaways. There is so much vintage out there, I feel inadequate. If you are reading this and see where I could do things better or different let me know. I'm still trying to master the picture thing and don't have a clue about the" button thing" I keep seeing.

I teach all week so weekends come and go very quickly. I would love to be the woman who can work all day, then come home and cheerily cook and clean before bedtime. Oh, well, I do cook and clean and I am cheery, but not all three at the same time. After a day with a room full of 5 yr. olds I do good to come home and get one of these done before bedtime. Any suggestions?

I have always loved camping. My husband of 15 yrs. used that to convince me to marry him, but alas, he likes staying home more than anything. So here I am turning 50 and look what he finds me. now I can do what I've always wanted. All I have to do is practice diving with it and backing it up. If anyone else loves camping let me know and we'll set out on an adventure.
