Wow! I'm a blogger now!

I set this up a couple of weeks ago and then didn't do anything with it. I thought it "went away" and I didn't know where to find it. Today. . .ta-da. . .I found it (by accident)!!! So. . .what to do??? I have many, many ideas but am not prepared for any of them so I'll just leave it at this.

I'll start with the name. At the time, when I set it up, it was a Saturday morning in October and I was going through all the great fall magazines that I had received in the mail over the week. FALL WAS HERE, but my summer flowers were still blooming. . .I love the colors of fall, and the decorations, but I don't like fall because it means the end of the summer. Summer is my favorite. I love warm weather, no socks, sunshine. . .just love it. Chilly, nippy mornings and evenings aren't something I enjoy (except the outside fires my husband builds -- those I like). And as I was thinking about it I thought that our lives are seasons too. We head into some seasons that we don't like and other seasons where there is so much joy you look forward to every day. So whether this blog becomes something "heavy" like seasons of life, or it just stays more light and literal (seasons outside), I don't know. I'll let the Lord lead me here as He leads me every hour of every day of my life.

Now I have a place to post things if I want!!! And a link to give others. Wow. This could be fun :)

For now, it's a bright, beautiful, sunshine-y fall day in early November. . .yesterday I was out playing tennis and commented that it was the PERFECT day for it. . .warm but not hot, beautiful fall-colored leaves all around, and quiet. I don't have anyone to play with today (and nights are out now that we turned our clocks back on Sunday) but it's a great day to crank up the music, clean the house -- you can see all the dust in this sunshine! -- and REJOICE in another day that the Lord hath given!!!

Sunday Dinner

This is the easy crockpot pork tenderloin dinner that I mentioned the other day. Obviously I'm not making it again today, but it IS a great Sunday dinner -- definitely good enough for company too. Here is your cast of characters:
Pork tenderloin, 1 can of each: Cream of Mushroom, Golden Mushroom, and French Onion. I am not a fan of processed foods, but this is an exception. I also don't really like mushrooms but they are easy to pick out of this dish if you like (I give all of mine to Margaret). That's it, that's all you need! Oh, and a crockpot and 8-10 hours :)

Here is what a pork tenderloin looks like if you've never bought one.
When you open it up you get this:Lots of people will further trim that fat. . .I don't because it will cook off. I do rinse and pat it dry at this point. Also, when my mother makes this she salt and peppers the meat -- I do not. My kids HATE pepper and I generally don't add salt to my cooking.

Add all three soups to the cro…

Love well

I needed some pictures late last week and realized that I don't spend enough time documenting the moments in life -- to me, if the picture is important enough to take, it's something I want to journal about.  It used to be that I was so busy documenting that I was forgetting to live in the moment. . .I think I have a much better balance now.  But then, this week, I was reminded of why pictures have always been important to me -- because LIFE is important and it's fleeting.
My aunt lost her son (in the sunglasses) this week.  It was unexpected.  He was 41.  He was one of my twin cousins.  Born on my sister's 2nd birthday.  I say "my aunt's son" because I can't imagine losing a child.  I'm sure no one can.  He was also a dad -- of that great kid all the way to the left in the front row.  J is 9.  So a boy is now without his father, and a mother and father without their  son.  His girlfriend lost her partner and many people lost a friend.  His sister…

Margaret's first 8th birthday party

Margaret had her 8th birthday party TWO WEEKS AGO!!! Ugh. It was on a Friday. The following Monday was the last day of school, then we left immediately for our trip "home" (300 miles away) and spent a week there. She had another party there, with family, ON her actual birthday. We traveled home Sunday, went to visit friends at Lake Cumberland in KY on Monday, "caught up" at home Tuesday, than visited Splash Country in Eastern TN with friends yesterday. Whew! Busy start to the summer :)This was the group of friends that were able to attend the party:Marie (her sister), AC, SM, EC, and the birthday girl herself :)She had three other people that were invited (she was 8, so I planned for a party of 8) but they didn't come.

We decided on a "crafting" party this year. My good friend and neighbor, Rene, works with Stampin' Up! and put together a great party at her house in her stamping room. The girls all made photo albums and charm bracelets. It…
