Fall has come to the South--at least for this week!!!

I’ve been having a dry spell blogging, just not enough time in the day.  Funny how we get ourselves so busy with this and that, rabbit trails, and such, with the Fall weather coming it seems like the list are endless.  I believe I am making headway, though. 

Grandsons Austin and Addison
The new crispness in the air makes me think about making soup.  I love to make soup and have many favorites and a few I have tampered with to come up with some tasty dishes.  In the next few weeks I will be posting some of these recipes.
The only thing I love buying more than electronic gadgets is buying kitchen gadgets.  Here are a couple items I ran across that looked so handy dandy I couldn’t resist.

My grandson, Emery was deployed to Afghanistan on September 9.  This is so scary; he is only 19 years old!  I have been on a mission to see that he receives packages from home.  With the help of his brothers, sister and cousins we are trying to make sure he gets something from home every week, a hand written letter or a package of goodies.   We have communicated with him through Facebook and text messages and he says he is doing fine.  He is in God’s hands all we can do is pray for him and all those young people who are overseas serving their country and protecting us.

That's all for now.  Thanks for coming. 



  1. Please thank Emery for me for his service. My best wishes for a safe return are with him.

  2. I agree with what Judy said. I can't believe the courage of these young people volunteering to keep the rest of us safe. I hope he has some interesting experiences, learns a lot, and comes home safely. My nephew is a career Army man and has been to Iran and also Afghanistan multiple times, he's there now out somewhere in the middle of the country. My thoughts and prayers are with all our brave military men and women. Kudos to Emery!
