Season of change
I can't believe we are so close to Thanksgiving, and Christmas is just around the corner! We have some BIG changes going on around here right now and I hope to be able to post about them soon.It's amazing what blessings can come to you when you least expect it.
I've been hopping around some of my fave blogs this morning and so many of them have been all gussied up in Christmas style so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon.I know it's still early but in my mind you can never start the holiday season too early! My kids must feel the same way because I've already been given 3 Christmas lists all folded and and ready to go to Santa!
They are all off school today for parent/teacher conferences and yes I have to go to 5!(not all in one day thank goodness)It's alot cooler out today than it has been all week,yesterday it was 75 degrees and today it's not even 60 and pretty dreary out as well.Yep,it's November!
I found this link on one of the 12,000 blogs I visited today (can't recall which one,sorry!)It's an online radio site that plays Christmas music all 24/7!I love it!!
I had my 1st Peppermint Mocha Latte of the season from Starbucks yesterday and I'm thinking I might swing by there again today.I don't usually care for super sweet drinks but this one is just a must for the holiday season.YUM! UMMMMMM,can ya tell I love this time of year?? ;o)
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
