We had sunny skies, temps in the 70s. Slight breeze...beautiful. People are burning leaves and the air just smells like fall.
Pictures taken from our lawn looking down on Fine Lake. I stop often from my chores in the lawn to see the beautiful view. This fall has been so beautiful!

The weather has been chilly and rainy most of the week. I have been sewing and painting to make a few handbags.
This week being Halloween I have been seeing some older pictures of my grandchildren and one in particular has a sewing project.
Wyatt asked me to make him a Halloween costume. He stood beside me one Saturday night as I sewed up this clown suit. He leaned against me a little harder as I stitched and pulled the Ruffles. He asked me what time it was. I told him after midnight. He told me that his mom and dad had never let him stay up that late before. He was very tired when I had him try it on. I had him sit on the bench with the pumpkin and snapped this shot, poor baby was so sleepy! But he was very happy with his clown suit.
The only grandchild that I did not hear from tonight was the oldest, Wyatt but I have some sweet memories of him back in his earlier years. I bet he was out and about...junior in college...I can not believe it!
I am so blessed and I pray you are too!

Most of last week was spent cleaning out flower beds, vacuuming leaves in the yard, and mulching the flower beds. Temps fell in the low thirties over the week end.
This long bed is mulched and ready for winter. I have a few plants that are in full bloom...mums, stonecrop, browned eyed Susan's. I had a red hot poker blooming as well as little violas. I also soaked the beds good before mulching. Our ground is very dry.o
The new bed is looking so good!
I like cocoa bean hull mulch but of course I could not get anymore this fall. Pine needles are cheaper under the trees in the back yard but I will need to watch and test my soil next Spring. They are high in acid.
I ask you to pray for my youngest daughter tomorrow. She is having surgery.
I pray for this country. I praise God for the many blessings that we enjoy daily. I pray that you know Jesus Christ and believe that He died for us on the cross and was resurrected and will return soon to rule this world.

Evan spent this afternoon with us. He keeps us hopping! He and I went to the little Dowling library. He was the best little 4 year.
My oldest grandson is an under graduate at MU. He is working on some research...he is the guy with the red shirt.

Evan loves to go to Shipshewanna. He has had a difficult time starting school this fall...he only goes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon, but he was afraid of the other kids and has a separation issue with his mama. We shop at E&S, a bulk Amish store, to buy in bulk and restock our pantry before winter hits us again.
You see E&S has 2 or 3 long aisles of candy...Evan loves it! I on the other hand, was thrilled to find that E&S was celebrating their anniversary and had many great deals. 50#s of flour was $9. 50 #s of potatoes $8.49, big delicious apples 15.50 for a bushel. They Fed us lunch too.
I had already put most of the supplies we purchased before I thought about getting pictures. The big red apples are huge! We buy in bulk so the prices are cheaper. You can get everything at this big store. The russet potatoes are huge! I store the potatoes in old wooden Apple crates from Angie's farm in my storage room downstairs. It stays cool and dry and I have several shelves with my canning, all the paper products that we buy in bulk. We also made a SAMs Club run and purchased instant potatoes..we really like them, coffee, flour..I didn't get the 50#s of flour, 10 is plenty. We don't get out on the slick roads during the winter months and so we don't journey into the stores. We will have potatoe soup if nothing else!
We are in 1Corinth With Through the Bible with Les Feldick. Danny and I have our am coffee while watching his program every am. We then listen to a lesson on our IPad at bedtime. The Biooks of the Bible fit together from the very beginning in Genesis to the last book of Revelation. I have learned so much!
