We had a great Sunday!
the farmers have got the cotton harvested!
We planted lots of pansies. They are so sweet
a few Old Maids left.......
I fried up the last of our green "maters" to go with supper.
I was raised on fried squash, fried green maters, pinto beans and cornbread, biscuits and gravy, green onions, good strong coffee, crispy fried pork chops, corn on the cob, wild honey, My Grandmas made fluffy coconut cake and homemade chocolate and butterscotch pies-those were a real treat.
We filled our Christmas Child boxes:
It was so much fun!
jump ropes, sunglasses, jingle jangles, beads and bracelets
Hairbrushes and toothbrushes, little reindeer with light up noses that sing songs
crayons, books, markers, slinkies---it was fun to shop for!
What a blessing to send these greetings to children far far away.
they are due to be turned in this week, so I am glad we finally got them packed.
Do any of y'all do Christmas Child boxes?
Last swim of the Summer
Fall has finally arrived. Yay!
Before the frost last week, Tansy wanted one last swim. LOL
Time for the last swim of summer. Tansy was the only one brave enough to put on a bathing suit! LOL. Tracie and Amybelle have changed into their Fall outfits.
Here's some of our Mums. We had two different colors this year.
And here it is Friday again, and I'm just now posting from Sunday! Our week has been busy with chores and appointments and getting organized for Thanksgiving, deciding the Thanksgiving menu, and shopping the grocery for it.
I hope you've had a great week and that y'all are enjoying this Holiday season, which has begun. So much to look forward to.
