Incline your ear, and come unto to me; hear and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. Behold I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call you upon him while he is near.
Happy October and thank you for stopping by the link up and sharing a scripture if you can. If you don’t do a scripture blog you are welcome to share a scripture in the comment section.

My daughter loved this book when she was little.
Little Golden Books have been a child’s favorite for years, and what parent doesn’t have a few on their child’s book shelves? They’re small enough for little hands when they begin their reading adventures, but until then, what fun it is to read the stories to your child.
‘The Monster At The End of This Book’ is one of those books that is a delight to read, and will have the child laughing and waiting in anticipation. Reading the book is so much fun if the words are punctuated with highs and lows of the voice as the author intended.
The adventure begins as the first page starts in large caps with “WHAT DID THAT SAY?”, meaning the title. Grover expresses concern as he anticipates finding a monster at the end as the reader keeps turning the pages. Grover says he is so scared of monsters! The book continues with Grover pleading for the reader not to turn the pages so the end of the book and the monster won’t be reached. As the reader turns the page, Grover litterally shouts ‘YOU TURNED THE PAGE!” (When that page is read as intended with a shout, children are sure to giggle.)
Grover goes on to explain that the reader must not understand that by turning the pages, you will arrive at the end of the book and there is a monster at the end of the book.
Children love when a book is read with enthusiasm, especially if you do it like acting out a play. This book is perfect for that since the author wrote the pages as they were intended to be read with the soft parts and loud parts.
The book is written by Jon Stone and illustrated by Mike Smollin who approach a story from the angle that a child’s imagination can run wild as they wonder what a monster at the end will look like or if the monster will actually jump from the pages.
To find out who is the monster at the end of the book, check yours out a local library or book store.
It has been years since I’ve gone on a vacation. But, last month my sweet daughter and SIL invited me to go on vacation with them. The trip was to Florida. Actually, the last vacation trip I took was when my daughter took me to California, and Also….the first time I’d ever rode on an airplane. Always said that I never would, but it was amazing. I shocked myself because also always said, I could never, ever look out the window of an airplane or want to be seated beside one. But, the adventurer in me just had to. It did not disappoint.
But, on to this year. They took me to Florida. The beautiful white sand was so soft like powder. I thought at my age, it would be way too hot for me so I really was hesitant. But, even though it was sweltering, the wind that blows across the water was amazing, and cooling enough. Anyway, it was just the medicine that I needed after losing my hubby, then the shutdowns of the pandemic. Kids are amazing.
Happy August, and thanks for visiting. Leave a hello or comment so I can come visit your blog.
Just a have fun moving the baby into a different background than the original photo and fun object.
Moved the photo of the baby into a basket, added a butterfly and some balloons as well as a cute tent. Always fun to maniuplate photos into a scene. The images I have used are found free around the net with personal use permission. Summer has arrived in my part of the world. However, the week it arrived, Fall like weather made a return. So far Ma Nature cannot make up her mind. We’re either super hot or could almost decide to turn the furnace back on of a morning. However, I will take it vs winter snow and blustery cold.
What I’ve been up to is mostly Spring/Summer chores. Mowing, planting flowers, watering flowers as all the rain of the past few weeks have gone around us. My grass is starting to look pathetic, but since we have a well, I have to use it sparingly in case a full drought would settle in. Fingers crossed that’s not happening.
Walking is back on my agenda, albeit not a fast pace anymore. I have gained during the stay at home pandemic and then winter months that I needed to get up and move. I’m loving that I can be out and about after getting the vaccination; especially the fact that the kiddos can now come visit mom, and get mom hugs all around. 🙂
I’ve been amiss at blogging lately. I need to get back in the mood, and work on new graphics. I’ve done Pictorial Tuesday for quite a few years now, but haven’t been doing that lately (taking a break). I still do the Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up each Sunday. You can find both of those at Peabea Scribbles
Have a good week. I plan to look on the bright side and have one. Of course, you may find me taking a nap or two also. lol
Love comments so leave one because I really like finding other blogs to visit and follow.
Who doesn’t enjoy a Love Letter once in a while from their soulmate. Back in my day, we wrote notes and letters. I married my HS sweetie, and still have notes we wrote back and forth in HS. I also have letters we wrote when we would be apart after we married. Was so fun to find and read years later what as young people we wrote to each other. Silly sometimes, and serious other times. They are priceless to me.
In today’s world of technology, we can still write love letters via email or text messges. Just print them off, and one day in the future, you’ll have them to look back at your young self.
It’s dark now, the kids have gone. As I look around the room, remnants remain of evidence they came ~ toys lay on the floor that won’t be played with anymore. Kids grow, they move away, but now and then they come again.
The rooms lighten up again with laughter and busyness. Toys are brought out for grandbabies to play, the giggles are delightful.
Time is up, bags are packed and off they go again ~ taking with them our hugs and well wishes.
If only kids could stay, but they’ve grown and must go on their way to the adult life they’ve made. We smile with pride and say good-bye as our Love goes out the door.
Latest layout. Having some fun with colors, and photos today. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements figuring out how to do the layouts, and make the elements since I don’t draw. Wish I did. I so envy those that can pick up a pencil and sketch or paint on a canvas.
Give me feedback to let me know if you’d like to have the kits for the layouts. Just contact me, and I can give the link.
Anyway, kits that I make will be given away with permission to personal use, but also to display on your website if you choose. The only stipulation is that my layout cannot be displayed as is, only the parts in the kit. They can be recolored, reimagined, or as is in your layout. They cannot be sold unless request commercial license permission. Any questions, let me know.
Crocheted wash cloths. Made with 100% cotton, and so soft. Had never made them before, but fun to make, and make a great gift.
The soap is melt and pour, and fun to add your own fragrances. To make the soap packet, I printed the Soap monogram, punched the top with a cute punch. Then I sewed it around on three edges, inserted the soap and punched through both layers, and intered a pin with taps to close. Eventually, I would like to make the soap as lye soap, but truthfully, does scare me a bit to work with it.
Cute pins that you can make with a simple square of fabric. Look cute to accessorize a purse or headband, etc.
Would love to see what you’ve been crafting. Leave a link in the comments or contact me so I can come visit. Enjoy visiting others who love crafting.
What better way to showcase your furbaby than with a scrap book page, even if it is only digital. You can use the items from my kit, transform them however you like, and frame it or just print out. Free kit file can be downloaded HERE.
Mine contains photos of my furbaby, Razzy.
Razzy entertains me and keeps me from going stir crazy during these Covid virus months.Sometimes though, the ins and outs of the day, I admit, drive me a bit crazy. Even in all this snow, he wants to stay out, and doesn’t realize how small he is and how soon those paws would freeze.
Have a great Thursday, and week end coming up. Thanks for visiting Peabea’s Potpourri. If you use the digital kits that I share, would love to see them. Just drop me a link to my email or comment below so I can come visit if you share them online.
