Tea quote

As we head into the Holiday Season of Thanksgiving, it’s always a time for remembering all our thankfulness.

Give thanks to the Lord,
Call on his name;
Make known among the nations what he has done.
 
1 Chronicles 16:8

Or perhaps a cup of Tea on a Winter’s Morn.

As you can see, I’m already missing my summertime flowers so guess the fake ones will have to do until Springtime rolls around again. 🙂

What I’m up to:

  • During this month of November, I’m doing a Bible Study of Thanksgiving that is online with GoodMorningGirls.org. It just started on November 11th so there’s still time to grab their study materials and join in.
  • I’m also working on getting together to share a Peabea’s Photography and Craft Patch Potpourri Photography Challenge meme. I enjoy visiting and sharing with other Photography meme’s each week so thought I’d start one as well.  But more on that later. 🙂
  • Just finished reading The Book Thief. My book reviews that need updated are on my writing site at peabea.net

Some freebies I’ve encountered along the way as I peruse the web and fun sites to check out that you might like.

Perseverance

Perseverence copy
Textured with Kim’s kk_happy heart at 20%

Such beautiful days so far this Fall, we are having. This time of year gets me in the mood for clearing out and cleaning up, and I really have to resist the urge to just pitch everything in this house instead. 🙂 It’s also the time of year that we find different insects trying to invade living space. Today was a day for moving out and sweeping behind all furniture, etc. to deal with insects. Even though we live out in the rural area (we’re not too far from a really small town though), we’ve always been lucky to not get surprised by too many invaders except when it turns a bit cooler in the Fall. Then we get a few insects passing through. Depending on what they are, I will try to rescue and put back out into their domain, but there are some that just don’t make it. Sorry.

Anyway, after the moving and sweeping behind and spraying, it was just too pretty to not take a bit of time outside with the camera. The flowers aren’t looking that great, but the weeds are flourishing so I took a walk down the road with camera in hand. The weeds reminded me of how we as humans, even in the depth of some despair always seem to find a way to bounce back and are determined to persevere against all odds. Kind of like the weeds that fill the edges of the road, edges of the farmer’s fields, and even among my flower garden. Some weeds will hang on throughout some of the frost, some of the worst storms of winter, and will find a way to awaken next Spring.

So, I guess if I had to choose between being a fragile flower or the weed that can withstand many odds, I’d have to choose a weed. However, I would prefer to be one of the good looking weeds. hahahaha Which would you choose to be?

Some pictures below from my Fall weed~walk today. ~smiles ‘n giggles~

Oh, and also on my weed-walk, I noticed that a few leaves are dropping from our tree and the beginning of the color change has started.

Personally, I’d take Fall weather like today year round. We had a splash of rain this a.m., but then it was over and the day was sunshiny with wispy clouds and a gorgeous blue sky. The farmers are clearing the fields and I noticed the beans are gone, and the one thing I don’t like is the smell from all the manure (or whatever it is) spreading on the fields.

Happy 1st Day of October and Tuesday!!

Thanks for visiting Peabea’s Patch…

Fun Summer Day

beach n sandbucket quote for TT

 

Even if kids can’t really accomplish it, they always think they will build a sand castle. Apparently the grandbabykins is trying to build one that appears to have a pond or an eventual moat around it. hahahaha The photo brought to mind all the things kids probably imagine as they play in the sand.

Sharing with Texture Tuesday. I added my pb_smokeygrunge texture, and then the kk_cosmo from Kim Klassen. Plus, then I added a few things that weren’t in the original picture, and I took the people out.

Original is below.

Quotography ~ SUNSHINE

Sunshine by Peabea Texture Tuesday

 

Some that have visited said they couldn’t read my poem so I’ve added the words below.

The Warmth

The Nature of your Love

Warms me as no other

Rays of Sunshine

Your hug

Your arms embrace

Encompasses my Happiness

And assures me I am Safe

 I dream of your Face

As I soak up the Sun

And await once more The Warmth of your Hug

By Peabea

This photo that I took at the end of last Summer was the one I decided to use for my first time submitting to Quotography because the field of flowers seemed a perfect place to be soaking up the Sunshine among all the colorful flowers.  Since I didn’t find a quote that I liked to go with my picture, I added my own Poem, and hopefully each part can be taken as a quote on its own.

I used Kim Klassen’s KK_May texture for sharing with Texture Tuesday.

I love sharing my crafts in The Patch, but would also love to have some Guest Crafters share theirs. If anyone has a craft they would share, I’d love to feature you on my site and share with others including my Facebook Friends. Please let me know in the comment form below. ~Thanks-a-bunch~

schools out copy

 

My baby brought her baby after school on the last day and into the garage they went to break out her old bike and one that he has at my house and off they went for a bike ride in the sunny warm afternoon. While they were gone, her hubby cooked out for us. What a nice surprise.

Grandbabykins proudly announced he passed to second grade and received two awards.

Spring at our House ‘n Miss Robin

Loving that Spring has arrived and the warmer mornings. Nothing like early morning sunrise and a fresh brewed cup of coffee or brewed tea.

Miss Robin has decided to favor us with a nest of eggs on our hose hanger…bad part is now that Spring has arrived and I like to clean off the patio and other uses for the hose…it is otherwise occupied for a bit. Not to fear though, we have another hose out front to use or to attach on the back, but really not wanting to disturb Miss Robin. This picture has two eggs (a beautiful blue in color), but she is now sitting on 4 eggs and won’t stay off the nest long enough for me to get another picture. I also used this picture for my April 30th Texture Tuesday (found at my other website http://peabea.net)
