Foggy Mountain

Some much needed rain and cooler temperatures, make for a beautiful foggy mountain scene. I love this weather. So great for snuggling up in a chair by the window and enjoying God's never ending beauty as the seasons change.

Country Road

This is another picture I took after picking up my grandsons at school. There is, of course, a major highway that we can take, but the boys and I prefer taking this route on the way home from school. It's just a small two lane country road that winds around what is called "the bluff".
Off to the left in this picture, you can look down and see the river running along the same path only it's about 300 feet below the road. On this day it was misting rain and the leaves are starting to fall, though they have not fully turned yet. My goal is to make just a little memory of the beauty my grandsons and I shared. Maybe, one day when they are older, they will drive down this same road and say.....
"I remember when Mamaw used to drive us down this same road to show us how pretty it was. Those were the good old days."
This is the new kit from cjsscrapbookingwithattitude called "Miss J".

Simply Autumn

This is a page I did while playing around in PSE5. I'm wondering if I'll ever get the hang of this software. Anyway, I took the picture in the upper corner last Friday when I picked up my grandsons at school. We have had such a dry summer that most of our leaves are falling off when the wind blows, before they've had a chance to change colors. Gary cleared up all the fallen leaves from our yard on Monday and today it's almost covered again. That's a big pet peeve of his, he doesn't like leaves laying in the yard. I say "but they are leaves, that's their job". He doesn't find the humor in that. lol. I used Carol's "Autumn Walk" kit for this page. It can be found on her blog site http://www.angelscrapper.blogspot.com/ Love this kit, Carol. Thanks so much.

A Serious Chocoholic



It appears that Seth has a serious problem. We are considering Chocoholics Anonymous, lol. In all seriousness, though, please keep my niece, her husband and their two little angels in your prayers as they live in San Diego and the fire continues to rage there with no let up in sight. Also, keep everyone in that area in your thoughts and prayers please. I just got an e-mail from her and so far they are not in the direct path but they are packed and ready to evacuate at any moment. Because of the winds, the fire is going in all directions.

Sorry, I almost forgot to give Jenny credit for this fun kit. It's Yummy For My Tummy and can be found on her blog site http://jensscrappingforyou.blogspot.com

Goodness, I Missed You All !

Hi everyone!! Have I only been gone one week??? Seems like much longer. It's going to take me forever to catch up on everyones postings. Thank you Linda, for watching after Floyd for me...you can still visit him, but remember, I'm watching you. And Gerri, I'm sorry I left you alone to deal with all these younguns. That's a lot for one MATURE LADY to deal with! lol
Wow, I hope everyone had a Sunday as full of blessings and I did. We had such wonderful services at church today, both this morning and tonight. God was truly in our midst!!
OK, camping was fun this past week, peaceful, relaxing, hot, cold, dry, rainy!! You name it, except for snow we had a little of everything. Monday it was in the 90's, so we ran the air conditioner, Tuesday was sunny but windy so that was really nice. Wednesday it was cool but comfortable, Thursday..rain all day, we ran the heater. Friday....Doggone COLD! I guess this was truly the last camping trip of the season. lol
Well, I must be off now...got lots of catching up to do. When you are a social butterfly, like me, (LOL) you have lots of friends' blogs to visit.
I love you all,
Jude

Just a short note.

I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't been online the past few days and maybe won't be again until Saturday. Remember a couple of weeks ago when my darling husband wanted to go camping and I wanted to stay home and paint our living room?? Well, painting is finished so we are camping this week. We just came home today to get ready for church tonight but are going back to the campground after church tonight. The plan is to come home Saturday but we may just play it by ear... Anyway, just wanted to check in with my dear friends and let you know that even though I'm old and I know Noah's last name...I haven't "kicked the bucket" yet. LOL
Love you all and miss you.
Jude

Wonder Where She Gets This???

Tiffani, all dressed up in lace and bows....and ATTITUDE. I feel certain this comes from her Papaw's side of the family....I know it doesn't come from my side!! lol. Believe it or not, we had entered her in a baby pagent and she won 1st place...good thing we had already collected the trophy and little crown before she made this face!! lol

Ready or Not...

I'm going back and digging out the baby pics. This is Tiffani at 6months. She lately has taken to reminding everyone that she will be 14 next month. lol Funny how they can't seem to wait to get older. Believe it or not, I can remember being the same way when I was her age. But oh how the time flies. I did this page in PSE5, still trying to get the hang of this software. Carol says I'm not too old to learn but I'm begining to wonder about that. The lovely kit is called "Miss Judy" compliments of Jenny Scraps. Check out the fantastic kits she shares with everyone at her blog and at cjs scrapbooking with attitude. Thanks, Jenny, I love this kit.

How I miss those days,

when the grandchidren were babies. Tiffani will be 14 next month and CJ will be 16 the month after. Much too "grown up" now to play in the fall leaves with Papaw. I clearly (and dearly) remember when I took this picture. We had the girls for the day and we spent all that day playing outside in the leaves. Gary raked those leaves several times that day just so he and the girls and I could play in them. I'm so glad we made these memories together.

This page was made using the new kit from CJS ScrapbookingWith Attitude called "Autumn Walk". It's available on Carol's blog. Thanks, Carol and Judy...it's lovely.

This page "dedicated" to my friend,Gerri

Check out my friend, Gerri's Blog. She and I are from the same generation..."The Good Old Days". Gerri posted a page of her with her first "Toni" so what could I do?? I had to let her see that she wasn't the only "Curly Girly". Oh what we had to go through with back then! LOL I did this page using "Burgandy Dreams", a beautiful kit by another friend, SherryC of Sherry's Creations. Click on her blog to get this lovely kit.
