Ups and Downs

It has been a busy week, we are trying to fit as much as we can into the end of summer! But I must say I am ready for the beginning of Fall to come upon us.

Hubby and I have had few days of riding the bike around......Thursday we actually spent the day traveling thru' southern Wis. The day was warm and sunny. We had a wonderful lunch at Popeyes in Lake Geneva and had to take some time to walk off a bit of our lunch! We met a couple there that were celebrating their 24 wedding anniversary, they were very happy and just enjoying each others company and looking forward to the next 24 yrs.

We did have some sadness come our way, our daughter lost a friend this week. He was attending a barbeque and was found in the bottom of the pool. The young boys pulled him up and proceeded to do CPR until the paramedics came along but sadly he didn't make it. The Dr. tried to reassure the kids and told them that he more than likely had a seizure and that was the cause of his death.
The one comfort we do have is that he is a wonderful child of God, he loved to worship and truly loved God. So knowing that one day we will be reunited with him is a consolation to us and to the kids, I say kids when I really mean young adults! This is a college age group.

So yes, this week has brought us many things, sometimes life can be overwhelming.....on top of all this I had a co-worker who had a nervous was job related.....another who is battling cancer and was in the hospital again due to an much pain out there. A reminder of the importance of knowing and having a would I even come close to surviving this thing we call life if I wasn't one of His children? I don't know how I would be able to.

Well I must take some time out to get a lil crafting done, I am starting on my Christmas projects. I wish you all a wonderful week......remember to take time out in your busy day to stop and worship God and cherish the moments with your family and friends!

Good bye July, Hello August

Wow the month just flew by! It has been a different type of summer for us this year. We haven't taken any trips out of town, but it hasn't been a humdrum summer either for us.
Hubby and I have had many road trips on the motorcycle, enjoying the views and ice cream treats ; )
We have worked in the garden together this year.....usually it's just me.... it has been nice having hubby working and enjoying the pleasure of seeing our produce grow from our lil bit of land. We are determined to make our home as much of a homestead as possible considering we live in a suburb!

So now comes August and the rush of buying supplies for school for our daughter, also the joy of buying clothes : )
Summer is coming to a close and I need to get our routine back in order! We have been taking it easy since the summer came upon us but now it's back to organizing and planning for the holidays and winter....and planning for our new grandbaby that will be here in the spring! : )
