Halloween is just around the corner

So we are getting in the spirit.

Over the weekend we had sweet B overnight she has decided that 
I need to hook a few things for her. She would like this in a wall hanging. She also drew a bunny with carrots dancing round him for the floor. She took a bunny pillow I hooked some time ago she felt it would fit in her bedroom just great. I just love that she is excited about hooking. We were also watching a show that had genies with magical powers I asked if she would like to be a genie and she looked at me and said but Grammie I would be me then. Be still my heart, how I love that old soul wrapped in that little girl's body.

I finished my little piece now that I look at it is pretty plain. But It will go on a side table for the fall. 
We had a very large wind and rain storm last night, a lot of the state is out of power. We are on a dead end road with just a few other houses,and always the last to get it back. I was told that it would take several days. So I am happy to be at work with lights, the radio and the internet! 
Have a great week.

A wonderful Fall

It has been an amazing fall. weather most days 70 with sun and light breeze. 

Usually by this time we have lost all the leaves and we are bundled up in jackets and wooly sweaters. I am not complaining for sure, we have not had to put our heat on once yet! But shall we pay for a warm fall with a wild winter? Only time shall tell.

My granddaughter Miss B came today to help me decorate for fall and halloween. 

She was funny as she pulled each piece out of the box.

She loves halloween as long as it is not to scary, I am with her!
Next weekend we get to have her overnight so her parents can go to a halloween party yeah for us!

This milkweed just waiting for a breeze to send all the seeds in the air reminds me of a million wishes. 
My mother and grandmother use to say
"If wishes were horses then beggars would ride" 
I had no idea what that meant as a kid, I just knew that they would not be granting that wish.
I told my daughter I had used up my wishes for a lifetime,as I have been blessed with a lot of wishes coming true. 
She did not agree she felt we should  keep on wishing. 
We raised a wise daughter.
Wishing you have a wonderful week!

What A Difference A Week Makes...

The weather has been weird. Very warm and the foliage  
hasn't been as pretty as normally. Husband and I took a little 
drive north still very pretty.

Even if the color was past, the mountains are always beautiful.
We went to Littleton NH they have a wonderful Main Street. Such a sweet wonderful town in the north country.

The color is still pretty good near us, and so warm and wonderful.

While watching the football game we had the windows open and the curtains were blowing in the breeze so wonderful  for this time of year.

During football on tv, I hooked a bit It is starting to come along. 
We have also been watching the first season of Call of the midwife
We have been watching this series for some time but we had never watched the first year so we are enjoying it.

On my walk today I found this yikes!,but so pretty when you think about it. Pretty high up in that tree, so does that mean lots of snow?
I have the new farmer's almanac and that is what they predict so I guess we will have to wait and see.
I have a new phone and I am having a hard time with the camera. I can not transfer the pictures to the computer. I will have to find someone to help me. Any ideas? Samsun Galexy J7.
Another great week of weather ahead I am going to enjoy it as long as it lasts, I know what is coming!
Have a wonderful week.
Husband is feeling better and we are getting back into our routine.
If I have any advice you should know is never take the first Dr's advice, if there is a little something in your gut saying this is not right. Ask for a second opinion you are the boss of your care.

Unexpected Miracles

The weather has been so weird 80's and humid my gardens are 
are still blooming

We are usually at peak this weekend for color
but there are still lots of trees to turn.

My daughter bought the bracelet in the front for my birthday
last year. I have worn it most every day. 

On the back unexpected Miracles is printed. Well this past week we got one. Husband had a major health crisis very long story short he is going to be ok. While my daughter and I were waiting for husband to come back from a test we walked into the hospital gift store and found the second bracelet a tiny acorn. Which was perfect. It came with a card that said unexpected blessings. I know it is only
a bracelet but every time I saw it or touched it would remind me to believed it would be ok. We have much to be thankful for.

I haven't had much time for hooking but I did get a tiny bit done
Now hopefully I can sit and hook a bit.
Have a wonderful week! I hope you are counting your blessing too,
we all have so many.

Happy October

The sky could not be bluer today it was a perfect
fall day. Beautiful 60's and now it is cool.
I took a nice long walk up and down lots of hills.
My legs are telling me all about it tonight.

We are starting to get color but with the awful heat we had it cofused the trees, we should have more color by now. We are going into the 80's by midweek ick.

My hydrangea is so happy this year I am waiting for the perfect picking time.

Well I finally have another piece on the frame.
I took little designs from different magazines and made a small piece to hook. I had also picked up a bag of coverlet pieces (they are not old) from a country store a while ago. I had no idea what to do with them, I do now! So that will be my border/binding when I am done hooking.
Have a great week
Happy Fall!!!
