This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

A Little Corny

Talked with my family in Indiana and it seems this year's crops are coming in early. Corn and beans are both ready and waiting in the fields for the big old combine to gather them in. Dad usually hopes to be finished up by Thanksgiving, but may be finished by Halloween this year. Of course that assumes there will be no heavy rains, equipment breakdowns, snow?!, or one of the numerous other things that can pop up and crimp those well laid plans! Go for it Dad!!

Just couldn't let this post go by without a corn-y joke - ready for a groan??
  • There was a man who entered a local paper's pun contest. He sent in ten different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

Watching leaves turn

Hubby and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend and visited three area parks. One was hosting an antique car show, one a "step back in time" fest, and the third was a civil war memorial we passed on our way home. Truly enjoyed the fresh air and change of pace. Trees here are just beginning to show a change of color and the fall harvest is beginning.

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

Celebrating the Differences

Today I've actually been able to shut down the A/C and open the windows! It's been waaaay too long! (I could tell by the large collection of dead insects on the windowsills between window &  screen that I had to clean up - yeck!) Good enough reason to celebrate don't ya think??
Isn't it interesting to note differences and similarities in various parts of the country? Moving south has brought some of those to the forefront for me. One I noticed really quickly when I first started trying to get around down here is the roads. In Indiana the roads are nicely plotted out north and south, east and west. You can count on meeting an intersecting road about every mile. For a directionally challenged person like myself that is quite comforting - if I missed my turn I could feel fairly confident that in the next mile or two I could take a road that would put me back on track in just a few minutes. Uh, not in Tennessee! If I miss my turn down here the best bet is to immediately find a place to turn around and back track because if you take the next road it is sure to include hairpin turns and lead you 10 miles up and down hills and totally the WRONG WAY from where you were intending to go. I am SO thankful for my GPS!  While I truly appreciate the beautiful scenery around these parts I most certainly miss what I now refer to as "the land of grid"!
While I'm not a really big sports fan, I have noticed a difference in sports preferences too. Down here it is all about football, where in northern Indiana the sport of choice is basketball (heard of Hoosier Hysteria?  it's real!!)  In high school the guys play football just to pass the time until basketball season - vive la diffĂ©rence!


Happy Thursday!!

Inspirational Gift

One of my goals for the day was completing this project, a special request by my daughter to give to a friend who is getting ready to start law school.

Some tiny little letters - but it cuts great in vinyl.
File is sized to fit in an 8x10 photo frame. Once again, I adhered the vinyl to the front of the glass so the background paper can be changed out for a whole new look if desired. This could be enlarged for WallArt, too.

Can't, can't CAN'T believe it is September already!!
Hope everyone has a safe weekend (especially those of you on the East coast!)
