Gorgeous Day in Nebraska!

Hello Peeps~Today is the most gorgeous day in this wonderful state we live in...we got a 2 inch rain and have 75 degree temps...doesn't get any better than that!  I have AUTUMN fever like no other...our summer has been soooo HOT and humid that it takes the energy right out from you.  I have been busy in my craft room...lots of fall crafts being made....I have 2 fall craft shows that I am doing in the next 2 months so its exciting to see all my new creations coming alive.  With the kids in school now, my"free" time is well spent.  I am also looking forward to decorating for FALL around our house, as the cleaning needs to get done anyhow and what better way to do it then to take everything down and put out the rich fall colors!
I hope that you are having a good day wherever you are and that the change of seasons is upon your heart like it is mine!
Have a great rest of your week!
Blessings~

Have a good weekend!

Hello Blogging Peeps!  Hope you have had a good week!  I know that I have had a good one and am anxious to have my kids home after their first full week of school.  I don't know if you are aware of a wonderful woman, Joyce Meyer, well she is into Ministry and has opened my heart and eyes to a new way of life!  I have read many of her books and listened to numerous cds, and this lady has not had the easiest life, but through her teachings and life experiences she has grown and now can help teach us.  I appreciate her daily shows and TRY to use her teachings in my life.  The messages are easy but yet we fail to often.  I hope that if you have some spare time to search her out and see what she can do for you...its amazing how she has inspired me!  
What are your big plans this weekend?  We have a wedding tomorrow and then on Sunday I canning salsa...so looking forward to that!  I hope what ever you do spend it with family and try to do something positive!  It sure helps when you have a good attitude!
Blessings~

Happy Sunday and 1 more day to sign up from my giveaway!

Good Morning Peeps....a reminder that tomorrow at noon I will draw a lucky lady out and send you a fall giveaway....I only have 9 names signed up so far...so lets increase this just a little :-)!  Today it is a gorgeous 70 degrees with no humidity and a light breeze....its amazing how much more energy I have when I can shut off the air conditioner and have that natural smell of the outdoors come through our windows....Yesterday was my oldest daughter, Sammy, 17th birthday...she had a bunch of friends over for a bonfire...it was fun to see her having a blast....to be 17 again..such an adventure.  Tomorrow our kids start school which is so hard to believe, but I think they are ready, I guess we will see how they do when they have to get up early again.  I better go make lunch.  I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday and I will post tomorrow who my BIG winner is.
Blessings~
