Oh, Happy Fall to everyone!!!! This is my very favorite time of year!!!! All the little kidlets got on the big yellow bus this morning, so excited for the first day of school.....love those little faces!!! Mine are grown and gone, but I remember with great fondness those early days, getting all new supplies for school, packing lunches, getting out the sweaters for the cooler weather......I would have cider and fry cakes ready for them when they got off the bus....and to hear all the exciting news of the new school year!!! Wonderful, wonderful days of my life!!! As a child my favorite new thing was a pencil box, made of wood with a sliding top and all new sharpened pencils, and I still love a brand new tablet of paper, so clean and cool feeling......

I am still recovering from the bronchial pneumonia, but feeling oh, so much better!!! I have quit smoking, which is quite a feat for me....have smoked all my life it seems like forever.....thank God for the strength to do this. My knees are making a very slow recovery, but hey, time will improve that......

We are having a batch of hot weather again, so disappointing after that first taste of Autumn weather, but we still have those wonderful cool nights with heavy dew that is so characteristic of Fall. I am back at my sewing machine, making the cutest pumpkins ever.....come see my offerings......http://designsbycleo.etsy.com........lots of new things, and soon will have some new jewelry pieces for Fall........love those rusty colors!!!

Hope you are looking forward to the change of seasons...always something exciting to offer.....and I wish you many blessings......
