Fall is here!

4 Oct 2015 Uncategorized 16

As the weather has taken a sudden dip in temperature, it is really beginning to feel like fall. Several things happened this weekend to remind me …

My husband, Tom, had gone away with son and grandson for a Tennessee game, and as I sat down to watch a show last night, I had to smile to myself. I turned it on the recorded shows to pull up a Hallmark show I had recorded and had to scroll down about 10 different new recordings to find it. All them were football games yesterday he had recorded since he would miss them. It will take him days to catch up or maybe just a night. His idea of a great fall Saturday is to be in his room downstairs, controller in hand, watching as many games as he can at one time!! Ahhh, gotta love fall and football!

There was a chill in the air almost, as I was settling in for the night, so I went to get me some socks to put on. I pulled out some hand knitted ones that my Mother had made for me several years before she died.  I smiled again, as I pulled them out and put them on. Sweet reminder of her love for her family. She must have made a dozen pairs of those socks that year, for each girl in the family. Love fall weather and heavy socks!!



So, with a Hallmark movie on, my art supplies spread out around me, I was able to finish up a few paintings that I had started.
