Life Writing | A Day in the Pumpkin Patch

Perhaps silly of me to say, I know...I understand, but this is a hard week for us with Friday marking another years anniversary of losing our Angeline and this visit to our favorite farm's pumpkin patch and being out and around all of this it ...renewed my soul....just a smidge.   It does not get easier - Look at that face, so full of life...

I walked beneath the bluest sky dappled with puffy, white clouds feeling the suns warmth on my face...through rows and rows of orange wonder with a fall chill in the air. 

It was wonderful. It was a good day.

Dollar Tree | Halloween Books/Storage Boxes

While I am not big on the macabre style of Halloween decorating I wanted something cute for the coffee bar that was still spooky.  I saw these storage boxes in the Dollar Tree when I went to buy penny wrappers and thought they would be great because not only do they look like books they open up to hide your other junk in them. I think there we...

Nature's Daily Canvas | Sunflower Joy

Beneath a cloudy blue sky, nestled in between miles of corn fields...a vision of yellow joy came to view.  As far as the eye can see these little sun worshipers stood at attention while butterflies and bees happily gathered their nectar one flower at a time. I stood there in awe of it all, taking in the serenity of this place...this part of Nature's Daily Canvas.
