What I've been up to...


I just realized today that I haven't posted for about nine days so thought I would hop in
here and tell you what I have been up to.

I picked up some acorns on a walk one day... 

...and it turned into a mini photo shoot. Hubby
and I have been walking every other day or rather trying to get it in every other day and I
am loving it...him, not so much! ha! I am amazed at the different kinds of acorns that
we have been finding. Here I thought they were all alike. Not so...maybe I can get
some more pictures taken one of these days. :)


 I  bought this tutorial for these beautiful angel wings from Dawn...

 over at The Feathered Nest and I can't wait to get some made.

I mailed a package to Indiana because a little sweetie of ours turned FIVE this past week...

My oldest son's daughter.
Her mommy posted the following on facebook and it just brought tears to my eyes.
If all little ones could have a mommy like this , how great our world would be!

"Today my precious girl turns 5...5!!!!! "A whole hand mommy!!" Hard to believe,,
but I am so proud of the smart and beautiful and spunky and energetic and
individualistic girl she has become! She challenges my thinking daily.  I'm so
excited for the next 5 years and beyond! "



I had a photo shoot with my youngest son's family...

I took over 400 photos. They sure took a while to wade through, but we got some goodies. :)


I even had to work with a *little* attitude, but it was still a fun day...



I loved taking photos of my sweeties...


I hopped in the car one day and drove up and down our dirt roads and found some
amazing color...


I ate this delicious donut that my bff brought me...

{but not all at once!}

It was like none I have ever had. From a bakery called Rise and Roll

SO YUMMY...and huge!! 


I about shouted with glee when my bff brought along these beautiful hydrangeas for me...


I thought this shed was a beauty while out cruising the countryside...


I snapped this photo of Annika before she could move again...

I have been a busy beaver, but it has been a fun couple weeks... 

Hope you all are doing well and that your lives are filled with
unexpected blessings daily!

You have been busy!! Love that acorn picture, and the road, and the barn, and of course yours framed. It is good to have diversions, and what a pretty drive to your home. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a lot of fun, though, especially taking pics of your sweeties. Love that fall foliage, too!
