 It's a beautiful autumn day here in Georgia today!! We are actually getting some fall temps..We have been outside most of the afternoon burning the debris from the trees falling months back and cleaning up from the remnants of the flood we had a month and a half ago...The backyard looks a wreck after all the mulch and plants were washed away...But the autumn leaves are falling and covering all of it up...Still no colors here yet..we don't really get colors til November here...I can't wait!

I hope everyone is having a beautiful autumn day! The rest of our day will be football on the television...Georgia and Tennessee games are always big here in our household...And we won't mention in front of Tim that Tennessee beat Georgia last weekend...lol...You can transplant me in Georgia after marrying a Georgia boy, but you can't take the Tennessee out of this girl!

A Special Day.......

Thirteen years ago on this day I was at the hospital getting ready for a simple procedure to remove part of my thyroid....Hours later the news that cancer was found...6 months to a year survival was told to my husband and parents...I wasn't told til 2 days later and my journey began...How do you wrap your mind around that news? What do you do? What do you say? The look on my husband's face... The tears in my momma's eyes... Hearing my daddy cry...My siblings sitting with me and making me laugh...Family coming...Family leaving and the quiet almost unbearable...More tests... 2nd opinion...Another surgery...Chemo... No hair...Tim reading the Bible to me because the chemo affected my eyesight...Momma sitting up with me when I was in so much pain from chemo...My best friend JoAnn coming...Radiation...Lost my voice and they didn't know if it would come back...GOD Blessed me with people all along the way...And when I was alone GOD was there with me...HE gave me a peace that ONLY HE CAN GIVE... He had other plans... Thirteen years later I have my 8 yr old, Luke... I can speak and sing again...My heart is so full and thoughts are jumbled...I'm just sooooooooooooo thankful to be here today with the friends, family, and the life I have...I'm so BLESSED!!!!!

A Weekend Flag Project....

 One of our weekend projects a few weeks ago...This was a leftover project from last summer we never got around to...A 3' x 5' piece of tin Tim made at work for a flag....It is heavy and weathering...We plan on hanging it on the side of the house over my butterfly bushes.....Many projects in the works...

I think I might have figured out how to blog from my phone...It is a bit challenging...Sorry it has been so long since my last visit....Still plagued by computer problems, so I'm usually online on my phone and maneuvering around...I thought I would try posting from it..

These pics are from last week after a bad storm went through...Tim and Taylor had just left hours earlier to go out of town for a family funeral...I stayed home with Luke...It was very scary...First we heard cracking and I saw branches...All I could do was yell for Luke to get to the front of the house...Then we lost power for hrs...Everything is back to normal now...The trees have been cut down...We lost 3 of them...And a lot of damage to my favorite shade trees...But everything is ok...I hope everyone is doing well and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend...

I'm so sorry I have been away so long...I have been plagued by computer problems and if I didn't have my phone I wouldn't have been on line at all...Something about a cord...The computer would stay on about 5 to 10 minutes and then out...Tim did something tonight (the monitor is sitting out in the middle of the floor)and so far it has stayed on long enough to get my page updated...I'm holding my breath that it doesn't go out on me...I wanted to share that I've updated my Primitive Handmades Mercantile page tonight... If you want to check anything out...I promise to be back soon and back to blogging as soon as we get this computer problem settled...I've missed blogging and you!
