A Beautiful Fall Day

Last Saturday was truly a beautiful Fall day.  But, it was the day I buried my beloved John.

It was a day full of emotions and sadness and happiness all at the same time.  Sad that he is gone from this earthly life but happy that he is in Heaven and I will join him one day.

The Lord gave me such a peace with his passing that I still can hardly believe how calm I am. God is so good!!

There were loads of beautiful flowers....

and many old acquaintances from various facets of his life - work, church, neighbors, and friends.

As I sit here and look at all of the gorgeous flowers, I am still amazed and grateful for all of my blogging friends.  Tiffany and I took a lot of the cut flowers to the hospital to the floor that John had been on so much the last three months.

Your prayers have been with us through this whole situation and I am so, so grateful for them.  The prayers were definitely felt by John and I both.

And then, the cards started coming in.  I've had at least fifty a day for the last week and I am so in awe that so many of my blogging friends, who I've never met, took the time to get my address and write me the sweetest notes.

I thank you so much.

I am still in the midst of all of the confusion that comes with this, but I will return soon.

Thank you again and God bless each and every one of you.

Little Bo Peep & Her Little Lost Sheep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
And doesn't know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they will come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.
Laynee aka Little Bo Peep
Laycee aka Lost Sheep
Kaycee aka Lost Sheep
What a wonderful nursery rhyme!!

I Know What I'm Planting Next Year!!

Remember last Spring when I so painstakingly made this delicate little vintage saucer flower bed?
I carefully placed the saucers in a circle making sure the colors all blended with the next one.
So much for all of that work. The Sweet Potato Vine totally grew out over the little border and took over the back yard.
It's not all bad tho.  When it dies out, I'll take out the china pieces and from now on out, all I'll probably plant is this.  It grows like crazy! 
My kind of plant!

What A Beautiful Day In Oklahoma!!

This Saturday is such a beautiful day!  The sun is shining and John has had a great day.  He even wanted to go out for a short ride and we stopped and got a hot fudge sundae on the way home.  How much better can life get?
The Mums are beginning to fade a little, but still bright yellow and cheery.
Didn't the Lord do a great job when He invented the Kale?
Pansies are thriving in this weather. the mystery of the Hydrangea!
I've talked to several others this summer whose hydrangeas have not bloomed at all.  All of a sudden, mine is loaded in blooms.  What's the deal?
Little bits of color are popping out.  I couldn't believe it when I went out to water and saw the centers of the plant all turning into the gorgeous hydrangeas.
Well, whenever and however they bloom, I will enjoy them.  They are one of my favorite flowers.  I just could not imagine why they were not blooming all summer.  Usually the bush is just covered. 
Can't wait to show you the Halloween costumes I am working on for Laynee and the twins.  They are just precious.  Do I have you wondering what they are going to be?
Hope so!
