Snowy Day

I’m in Ohio, and it has been snowing on & off since yesterday…

I ran outside with my cell phone and took pictures of the beautiful setting…

County Fair

I went to a cute little County Fair this past weekend.

My favorite part is always the animals…

I have to tell you, though, I was very disappointed to learn that the chickens and roosters were not scheduled to arrive for another 3 days! That is always my favorite section!
Oh well, maybe next time…Sigh…

They also had an old building filled with different kinds of historical displays…

I was so excited when I saw some quilters demonstrating the art of hand quilting. It was fun talking to them.

There was also different sewing machines from the early 1900s

Outside, there was a large display of different kinds of machinery and other “vehicles”

It was a fun time, just walking around, enjoying the different areas. It was a small fair but there was something for everyone… Rides, food, contests,…

There were several groups performing at various stations and I enjoyed listening to them.

I’ll leave you with a picture of these two sweeties…

Happy Fall/Autumn,

Whenever I’m on the road,  away from home,
I try to find time to go to local Historic Downtowns…
I love going in and out of little shops,
(although I mostly do window shopping).

 

image

My favorite has to be the little antique stores…
I especially enjoy when I get to go with my daughter
because we both love history and we ooh & ahh
over the old stuff, wondering who it belonged to
and what their story was.

One of the things I’ve enjoyed getting are Cookbooks…

image

 

 

I never pay more than $3 for one…

 

image

 

I found these for .10 each at a Library Book Sale.

 

image

 

 

I’ve been looking for this one for a long time!
Couldn’t believe it was only $2.50.

image

 

I took the book jacket off and I like the hardback cover so much more!

image

 

 

I was so excited when I found this one…
I’d been looking for a Rachael Ray cookbook for ages.

image

 

 

 

These magazine-style ones are usually between .25-$1.00.
I got this one because it had lots of cheesecake recipes…

(My husband loves cheesecake, and I love him, so…)

image

 

Next time you’re driving through a small town,
check out the historic downtown…
you might find something that you can take home 🙂

Happy Hunting!

Have a blessed weekend!

Because my husband & I often leave very early in the morning…

image

 

 

We see different things…

 

image

 

On this lovely morning,

we saw many hot-air balloons in the sky…

some were just taking off

while others were already way up high.

 

 

image

 

 

I think it would be so much fun to take a ride on one!

 

image

 

These photos were taken with my phone

as I frantically moved around from one car window to the next

trying to get at least one of the balloons hovering above us…

(No, I wasn’t driving the car)  🙂

We’ve seen them before… maybe next time I’ll be able to show you

a group of them up in the sky…

It’s a beautiful sight.

My husband & I recently celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary!!

…to celebrate, we planned a very special trip,
however, things don’t always go as planned,
and I found myself in the ER just two days before
we were scheduled to leave on our trip.

I am so thankful that it was nothing serious and I am recovering.
If you’ve ever been in the ER,
especially if you have a lot of pain,
all kinds of thoughts want to rush in
and fill your mind with visions of what could happen…
It’s not easy to keep those thoughts from taking over.

I thank God that I felt his peace,
His comfort,
and his strength.
…and that I was happily released about 5 hours later!!

We didn’t exactly get to go on the trip we wanted,
but we did go to a nice place and get some fresh air
up in the Blue Ridge Mountains…

We went on a hike and I’d like to show you
some of the things we saw…

It was hard to walk past the pretty flowers
without stopping to take 5-105 photographs…
My husband is a very patient man.

We came across this bench with a heart shaped by flowers!

Some of the more steep areas had steps…

We had a great time!

Now we’re ready for another 30 years of wedded bliss!!

I am blessed beyond measure!
My husband is my best friend,
he is an amazing person in many ways,

…and we’re still very much in love!

Looking forward to all God has for us!

Sunrise

On the road again early this morning…

20140706-074417-27857856.jpg

I do enjoy the early morning sights (once I’m up)

20140706-074526-27926826.jpg

“From the rising of the sun
To its going down,
The Lord’s name is to be praised”
Psalm 113:3

Happy Sunday!

Road Trip

I’ve been away…

20140522-113149-41509638.jpg

My husband & I were visiting our son & daughter-in-law.
So much fun to be with them!

20140522-113242-41562181.jpg

It was a long drive, but well worth it!
We went through seven states just to get there!
Can you believe it??
And we saw some beautiful scenery…

It was an unforgettable time together.

20140522-114139-42099298.jpg

I am so thankful we were able to go,
and I can’t wait to see them again!

Have you hugged your kids today? 🙂

Love to you all,
Daisy
