31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy – Day 13 – A Trip to the Dallas Arboretum

14 Oct

We made our first trip with two of our grandsons to the Dallas Arboretum today – the oldest two who are 2 and 4.  It was a warm, muggy October day here in Texas.  It begin to get warm after lunch, the 4 year olds feet were hurting, the 2 year old was wanting to go to Nana’s house for cheese crackers, Nana’s shoulder was hurting from carrying the camera and holding the boys hands.  Not sure about PaPa – he wouldn’t admit it if something were bothering him.

We stopped and rested twice on the way back to the car, and the last stop PaPa grabbed two juices and a water.  The boys slurped the juices down faster than they ever have around us.  It was getting crowded and we were glad we got there when it opened.  My pedometer says we walked four miles over more than three hours, and we didn’t even visit one side of the park – we spent our time in the children’s areas.

It was unseasonably on the warm side – 93 degrees, average is 79 for this time of the year, but changes are coming early in the morning with rain and a drop of twenty degrees.

It’s a North Teas about face, and come Tuesday the low is 49.  Brrrrr!

Look at those pumpkins right in the center – the white ones.  They were really neat – peanut pumpkins.  Looks just like peanuts on them.  I read where the peanuts are excess sugar buildup.

31 Days of Faith, Family, Home, Fitness, Coffee and Joy

1 Oct

31 Days of Faith, Family, Home, Fitness, Coffee and Joy.png

The countdown has begun for the 31 day write project.  Crystal Stine is leading this years 31-days.  When I think about writing for 31 days again this year, it is a bit overwhelming and picking a subject well ….. how do I do that again?  The last three years I’ve blogged about Fall.

I love Fall, but can I really write for 31 days again about Fall?  I think NOT, but I can write about things going on right now in this season of Fall, and who can’t write about faith, family and coffee?  I’m challenging myself to write about fitness because I need to lose some pounds.

Can I keep up?  Life is crazy, busy, hectic and fun right now.  We will see on October 31.

It all starts today, Sunday, October 1.   How did that happen?  Where has 2017 gone?  I’ve chosen to use some free writes and see how much I can say about Fall, inspiration, family, home, coffee, fitness and all that is amazing in my life.  Perhaps I will even share that pumpkin bread recipe from my Mom.

On this first day I’m sharing a little about me.

  • I’m a born and raised Texan with a small 3-month stay in Oklahoma.
  • I married my high-school sweetheart and yes we’ve been together for 48 years.
  • We have two grown married children and five grandchildren ages four and under.
  • Four grandsons and one granddaughter.  Three of those babies, twin boys and a little girl were all born in March.  See why I’m busy.
  • Those babies are miracles and perhaps I’ll share some about them and how God has blessed this family through infertility, miscarriages, and so much more He has brought us through.

Loving life today and every day.  I love my family, my home, blogging, leading on-line Bible studies, substitute teaching, walking, reading, working in the yard,  tracing my family tree, and I love coffee y’all.   How about you?
