I'm back....again

Hello Dear Friends,

Well, I'm back, after several months of health issues and whatever, but we won't go into all that. But after having surgery, I must say I am doing better.

The weather here has turned Fall like, cooler evernings and early mornings, with the temps rising greatly in the afternoons. I love Fall with all its many colors, sunflowers, pumpkins, and black cats! We have the windows open with the cool breezes blowing through. The mornings are wonderful, as I can sit on my pation with my morning coffee, listen to the birds sing and watch our two dogs play in the yard.

I've been stitching Fall/Halloween designs from LHN, The Samper Girl, primitivebettys, Stacy Nash, Brittercup Designs, and Jenny Hoffman. Stacy Nash has a new Halloween booklet out full of Halloween pinkeeps, which I will be ordering today. I love the primitive look, they are fun, easy designs to stitch. I don't have any photo's to show today, but will have in a day or so, as I need to take the time to put finishes on what I have stitched.

Yesterday, I purchased the new Debbie Macomber Cedar Cove book #9, 92 Pacific Boulevard. I've read this entire series and have really enjoyed it. I also purchased her new Cedar Cove Cookbook. I do read cookbooks from cover to cover. I don't always make many dishes in them, but they make great reading for me.

Wayne and our are planning a few days trips for this Fall. One is to the Wilder Festival at Mansfield, MO. This is where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived and penned her Little House books. I loved those books and still read them from time to time. Of course, we will also venture down to Branson and Silver Dollar City a few times this Fall.

Until next time, Blessings to All,

Hi Barbara! Its great to see a blog post from you! I hope many more are in your future.
Yes, isn't this weather WONDERFUL! I love it! Sunday morning it may dip down into the upper 40s here and the high for the day is only 71. I hope that doesn't change. I love that type of weather.
We need pictures please! Pictures of your stitching!
Is your trip to Branson a day trip? I haven't been in years and would love to go in November, before the insane Christmas rush, but after they've put up their holiday decorations.
I know this doesn't count as an email and that I owe you one. I'll do so soon! Glad you're feeling better and have recovered well.
