We had a snowstorm for Halloween this year!
Thank goodness the temps came back up, and the white stuff has all melted..
We are still adding Fall decor here at the lakehouse....getting ready for Thanksgiving.
We worked on this cute scarecrow, trying to get it done on time for Fall.
I had one a few years ago, and used it outside.. The wind smashed it to the ground, and I have wanted to "remake" him for a long time.
I think we will be keeping this one inside for this season.
The sun is shining, and the temps should reach almost 70.
Our normal for this time of year is the mid 40's.
A friend of mine, Pat, is helping me accomplish something that I have wanted to do for years.
Being inside because of the weather/season, and the covid issue, I have the time to work on water colors. I have worked with acrylics for years, but water color is a different technique.
I bought ALOT of supplies to get started, and work on projects to learn this art.
Another thing I have picked up again is knitting. I don't do any fancy stitches...mostly straight knit and pearl..
There are many things you can do with just the two stitches that I know, so I am starting to look for projects that will work with "what I know".I am enjoying so many of the things that I used to do, and new things, as well.
God blesses us with talents, and gifts. If we can use those talents to bless others, how wonderful!! If we use our gifts to minister to others, even better!!!
I am loving life....yet know that what is to come is even a greater experience to be had!!!!
I am consciously determined
to go on, inspite of all of the negative situations happening in these days. I trust that God is in control, and that He has a plan. I am determined to trust Him!
As life unfolds, there are many things to be grateful for.....living joyfully is the key.
Do the things that you enjoy doing. Live life to the fullest. Find joy in everything.
and know beyond any doubt, that you are assured eternity IN CHRIST JESUS.
