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!

How Thankful I Am!

First, let me say thank you for all of the sweet comments and all of the prayers and thoughts going up for John and I.  He continues to amaze me and we are having some very precious time together.
So far, the last two days have been spent with the dear Hospice people.  Monday, sweet Bev was here to go over the process with us and within a few hours, oxygen, breathing machines, some of his meds, etc. were already here at the house.  They are a very fine tuned and well run organization,
Today, his nurse - Carrie - came and she was just as sweet as Bev was.  They are such caring and personal people.
 She will come twice a week unless we need her more.
His team is comprised of a nurse, an aide, a pastor and a doctor.  The doctor is our family doctor.
I just want to again thank you all for your love and support.  I am so grateful to God that you all have been there with me thru this and it has all been so positive.
I am trying to sew a little along, but it's been kinda crazy moving furniture, etc. around for all of the necessities.  But, sewing is really calming for me.
Thank you again and enjoy this lovely Fall!

It's All So Hard To Believe.....

It is so hard to believe that Fall is here and the trees are gradually changing!
It is so hard to believe that this sonogram was taken over a year ago and.....
that these two precious babies will be one year old this coming Sunday!  How time flies!
It's hard to believe that my crocheted potholder wreath appeared in Romantic Homes this month.  (More on that later).
It's hard to believe that John had been in the hospital for a week and Tuesday, they came in and told us that we might as well go home and be comfortable because there was nothing else they could do for him.
It's hard to believe that on Monday, Hospice will be coming to the house to start helping take care of him.
It's all just so hard to believe.
But, God is still good and will see us thru all of this.  The doctors and nurses have all been just fantastic and we are so grateful to them for their love and care.
I will be posting when I can.  I can sew at home while he is resting, so that's what I will be doing a lot of.
Thank you for your many prayers!
It's all just so hard to believe.
