Be Thankful

Welcome November! I open my arms and welcome you to my life. I am ready to slow down..To be thankful.To live life a little fuller and realize as much as I say life sucks sometime,that I actually have it pretty good.Im not homeles. Im not jobless. I have a family who loves me.Friends! and all in all a pretty good life indeed! As the holidays approach we tend to get more and more involved.wrapped up,less time. We take on way to much and try to get it all done. Within the last few years I have cut out a lot of the running around. I take more time to bake.To go out. To enjoy life!!As this thankful month is now here..what  in your life are you thankful for? What can you cut out to slow down,enjoy it and really have a grateful heart

Ive included a November calendar for you :D enjoy it and remember to be thankful every single day you are alive!!


There is a change in the Air. I can feel it cause I can breath again in Georgia without the hot hot hot heat. Its nice in the mornings.  A little chilly in the late evenings. I wanna sit outback and knit in my swing till I cant see the yarn anymore. Im blogged down with classes.Its all I can see right now,so tomorrow,im going hiking. Yep,gotta get  numbers,terms and definitions out of my head and breath again. What do you do to get your bearings back in life? Whats your third place? Have you heard that term before? You have your home,your work and your ____________ place. Yeah your third place,its where you go to get away,to vent,to refill your soul with joy? Where do you go for your third place? Share with me today.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.Ill be happy hiking in the woods alone :D
PS not really alone,they have turtles,snakes,birds,alligators and more at this park hehehe

Sharing more stories today..


Sharing stories over at Shutter Sisters today....

this months theme over at Shutter Sisters is "Story" These love letters were sent to me in 1987 from my ex husband while he was in basic.they are in blue envelopes with the wings on them,,even today,after being divorced 9 yrs they still bring me peace Even with the divorce, I still think of it as my great true love :D or


Autumn is my favorite time of the year. It comes in slow in Georgia and a bit late,but I can already notice some changes. I don't suffocate in the mornings when I go out the door.There is a rustling of the leaves already. At night we actually drop down below 80. That hasn't happened in about 3 months. There is a shift in peoples attitudes.The end of the dead heat is coming and they know it. There are friends to get to chat with outside again.People to stop and have a drink of tea with. You want to linger more and enjoy the noticing of the change. Im in classes Monday- Thursday and I feel like im missing it. I have this gift of a three day weekend as the seasons change and I can watch it happen. I hope you relax more,chat more,go walking more. Take time to slow down....see it all happening.The wonders of Autumn are upon us and I for one cant wait!!

Do you Blarter??

So my sweet friend Molly has this great site. Ive recently set up to do 2 trades and im so excited about them both. Its called Blarter,,blog/trade.  You set up what you want to trade and you wait for someone to contact you to trade. I just contacted two lovely ladies and I am doing two trades. Next though I think Ill list something to trade too. Its really fun to get things from others in the mail and send presents too. Come by,say hello to Molly (who is one of the sweetest ladies ever) and come trade along !!

Hope everyone is well and enjoying the last official days of Summer. Living in Georgia in this heat,let me say WELCOME AUTUMN!! come quick!!!

Finals and a rest

So this past week was final week in college.Yes im 42 and recently started back at college,,never to old right. I really liked both my professors this semester and have to say,, I had to do a 7-10 page research paper recently and found I really loved doing it. I have not done a lot of writing and I realized I miss doing so.With that said my paper was on Susan Sontags On Photography book.If you have not read it or anything by her please sign off my blog,pull up Amazon and look her up.She is an amazing writer. Its not a technical f stop this or use this lens kind of book.She writes 6 essays in the book and she is so smart and well versed. You will love it I promise.Right now im on her In America and I recommend that too. Im sure ill recommend anything she ever wrote while she was alive.She is a Polish.Smart.Well educated.Amazing Woman!! I hope you are all having a great weekend. I went to a used book sale today and fell in love with vintage French books.Cant explain it,but I love them…

Homemade Swap

So I live in Warner Robins,GA and I love making homemade items.Bath products,breads,sewing,whatever!! And a friend of mine in Colorado goes to this swap once a month.Someone hosts a 2 hour pot luck.Everyone brings some food to share and everyone brings something to swap. Here is a link to the details

I really love this idea.Id be more then willing to host the first one. I can set up tables in my backyard and we can have a garden pot luck.Im looking for others who are local to participate. If you are interested please leave me a msg here or find me on flickr my nick is Debbsga or my etsy is
Contact me by flashlight if you need to,but id love to get this off the ground in our area. No money is needed. You barter after the first hour and you write your name down on a sheet if you are interested in something so the person knows what you wanna trade and who you are :D Sound like a good time? Hope to hear from you all soon :D

Life in a blur

Well hello all. Ive missed you and this space. I had an issue with forgetting my password and then when I got it time slipped away. I hope you are all well. How was your holidays? I am looking forward to Easter. I love the spring,white,bunnies,eggs,children at church hunting eggs. I just wanted to pop in and say im back.
Check out my shop if youd like and see what ive been up to and im offerring the first person who contacts me on my etsy a free print with a purchase of equal or lesser value. Buy a print say for $20 and get another $20 print free or a $10 or $15 one,,you pick. Come by and say hello I say first person but,if I get three peeps,ill do it for all 3 of you and share the love.

Hope all is well

PS put the name of the free print in a memo to me when you check out so you dont get charged for it and ill send you both prints :D
