It's That Time Again

Here it is the last day of September! That means that tomorrow is the first day of Bow Hunting Season..woo hoo! The trailer is clean and packed, all propane tanks are filled to the brim, so that all Hunters will be able to warm up after a day in the woods.
Tomer and Miss Em will leave tomorrow as soon as he gets home from work. That means 2 days for this ol' grammy to do as I please...Hmmm, what to do with myself? There will be no cooking for sure and for certain and my chores are already finished.
Oh yes, I am ahead of the game. That assures me of guilt free days as I read, rent myself a movie or two and order take out. Maybe, I will do a little browsing at Hobby Lobby and The Christmas Tree Store. Maybe, I will go get a pedicure.
I'll think more about it tomorrow...blessings one and all.

I Am Not Dismayed

The weather is cold and dreary but not so my heart. It is filled with the warmth and love of a Saviour, who is faithful and always carries us through lifes trials.
Church is an important part of our lives. We are active members, doers of the Word. Believing that each of us is born with awesome gifts from God that should be used for His glory and not wasted.
We have experienced some trials these past weeks...some rough and raging seas have made the place that is our Sanctuary, confusing and frankly disappointing.
But, I am not dismayed! I, do not follow man nor give account to any...I follow Jesus Christ and because of Him I walk in faith and victory today.
Leaving past things behind and going forward, knowing that God is moving and only He is in control.

Happy Homemaker

It's almost here...Autumn.

I have been the busy little homemaker today. After my time with the boys and Tomer left for Church. (I played hooky.) I decided to vacuum, polish furniture and of course, laundrocize. Don't want a pile a show dog can't jump.
I then made myself a nice fresh cup of coffee, lit my yummy smelling candle from Kell and settled in to watch a show I had on DVR that Tomer doesn't enjoy. Tomer, always ruins programs by figuring out the ending...grrr, it sometimes aggravates me! Now, after 41 years with him, I find myself doing the same thing...proud to say that I sometimes beat him to the it when that happens...LOL.
The weather has been glorious! Jerry (local weather guy) says rain is coming in tonight after midnight and we surely need it! I love listening to it in the night don't you?
After my program was over, I decided to go check out the garden. Picked some tomatoes, Hungarian peppers and raspberries. Just couldn't resist the raspberries! So, as soon as I got back to the kitchen I ate a handful! Oh, they are so sweet this year.
Now, I am baking a batch of Amish breakfast bars. They are a great snack! Tomer, likes to keep a bag of them on the school bus to curb the hunger pangs until he gets home.
Well, it's about time to get the last load of laundry from the dryer. Soon the oven timer will ring and my day will be done. Gonna get myself a glass of water and relax a bit before bed time.

Tim Hortons...Grammy'sTimbit

This ol' grammy and Papa have a new sport to follow! Our Xavier aka Scooter has joined the wonderful world of Soccer! Now, you all know that I just love me some Tim Horton's Coffee...just feast your eyes on our Scooters shirt. Yep, Tim Hortons is their sponsor and you can be sure that I showed up at the game with my large coffee with butter caramel flavoring and 2 creams please?

Here is our Timbit! As soon as he got his shirt he had to come and show me. It cracked me up, especially since I always get them a pack of their favorite Timbits (doughnut holes) when we make a trip to the drive-thru. This shirt is

On the field playing his heart out. He actually made 2 goals...the look on his face made my heart sing.

Big sweet Lou.

After the game...tired, and sweaty. But, never fear Tim Hortons will take care of that...just go to one of their shops, raise your shirt and they will give them something nice and cold to drink. Our boy couldn't wait! He would rather drink than eat... so, it was right up his alley.
We loved watching these little ones and left with big smiles on our faces.

Fiery Sunset over Lake Huron. East Tawas, Michigan.

Another busy day is coming to an end and it's time to wind down before bed. My day was good. No, it was blessed! Filled with taking care of 2 busy grandboys, picking up the other 3 grands after school, taking Lou to ball practice and finally going to Ian's ball game. (they won...Rah!) It was freezing! So, as soon as I got in I changed into sweats and put socks on my frozen piggies. The chill of Autumn is in the air! And ya' know what? I am ready for it. The changing of seasons is what I love about Michigan; each one so dramatically different and beautiful.
Soon, I will decorate my home with the vibrant colors of Fall. And of course, fill all candy dishes with my favorite Candy Corn. This morning, Kell blessed me with a yummy smelling Swan Creek Candle...Pumpkin Spice, the perfect scent for this time of year!
Yep, tonight there are visions of Pumpkins, Indian Corn, Corn Stalks and Apple Orchards running through my head. I am one happy grammy! Good night all.
