Counting Pumpkins

I've decided if it can't be Summer all the time,  then Fall is good!  I do have a "thang" for pumpkins - perhaps it's because I LOVE the color ORANGE!

Do you decorate for the seasons?

Just wondering -

*I'm counting 6 "itty bitty" pumpkins in my house.
 Wish I had room for more.

Nerdy Wordies

Even though I wasn't a whiz kid in school I LOVED diagramming sentences. I loved drawing the lines and assigning certain words to them. It's kind of like "dissecting" in science, just much cleaner and better smelling. The teacher often assigned me the Nerd Duty privilege of ciruclating through the classroom and helping the other students with their sentence diagramming issues. I was the "go to" gal for sentence structure. In our home on the bayou there's seldom a time I'm called upon to diagram a sentence, but we do discuss our lauguage and the proper pronunciation of words.

So which is it -

When you're in the garden digging in the dirt to plant a seedling which will someday grow to become part of your BLT sandwich, is it a tomayto or a tomawto? And when Ma calls you in to cleanse yourself before dinner are you going to wahsh up, or warsh up? Then as you climb into the shower are you bare-nayked or bare-necked?  And if you should decide to read a book do you go to the li-berry, or li-brary?  And does Valentine's Day happen in FebUary or Feb-brew-airy?  And do wild, semi-dressed men get into a ring to rass-el or ress-el?

These are the things that keep me awake at night.
Such are the deep issues I'm pondering on this soggy Monday evening.
I'm going to blame it on the heavy rain.

Photo Moments

This is me emceeing "Lunch with the Girls", a luncheon sponsored by "Woman to Woman" which is the women's ministry of our church.  This was a first time experience for me and I lie if I say I wasn't a bit nervous.  But, it  all came together well thanks to the fantastic team of women who WORK to see that
things get done.  I am so proud of each and every one of them.
