I received my Tart swap!

I was SO excited Saturday when I got home and saw my husband walking to me from the mailbox with a package! He was sniffing it and smiling! I quickly tore into it and was so happy to see what I received form Tammy @
She makes her own Tarts at Rose Craetions and boy-do they ever smell good ! She sent me some of her sopa and a sachet also. Great first time swap for me! Thanks Char!........

AND Thanks to Tammy!

Busy as a Beaver

Goodness! Cannot believe how quickly time flies! I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted! I was looking at some of your posts and SO enjoying them and then realized---hey--I NEED to post! Although, again, I don't have the exciting things in my life like some of you!

I have spent alot of time moving furniture around my house, trying this here and moving it back here and then moving it there...does that make sense???? It has been almost funny....I will get up early because I can't sleep and start looking around...and by the time DH gets up I need his help to move something! Poor guy---don't know how many mornings we were moving stuff at 6:30 in the AM!!!!

Well, let's see...guess I will give an update to the MS Bike ride that my hubby did two weeks ago. He rode 102 miles from rock Hill, SC to Greenville SC for this cause. He did great and actually cut time off of the ride this year! The morning started off VERY foggy and it is hard to watch your DH ride off into the fog on o BICYCLE.....on curvey country rodes! They have alot of support people in cars and motorcycles and they are not alone as they ride...even if they get separated from the pack....

It was a good day because I got to spend the afternoon with my son in HIS home ---I fixed some lunch and brought it with me...and then my DIL (first time to write that!) came home form a wedding that she had been in the night before just in time to get to see Mike ride in to the finish line in Greenville! Then we went to eat together. They bought their old Ma and Pa some Ice Cream to celelbrate the occasion! Of course, DH was the only one of us who could really afford the calories we took in that night! >..But is was ok...we were together and laughing...and having fun!

Fall colors are slowly coming this way. We ave taken a few "color" rides so far. We so enjoy those, much like Linda and Mr. Red Door ! A great tradition! We drove up on the Blue Ridge Parkway a little bit last week and stpped by one of our favorite places there---Price Lake--so pretty already! We also have been walking at Kings Mountain State Park and I took a few pics there.

We have been making a few things for our booth. It is hard because alot of times you have to spend money even to "repurpose" things and we are trying to NOT do that right now as DH and his job are struggling right now --and I know alot of you know what I mean by that!

Have you ever heard the phrase "Busy as a Beaver"? Well this is a pic I took of a busy beavers work! I know most of you are understanding this feeling right now preparing for the holidays and shows you may be in for Thanksgiving and Christmas....

Oh yes! I found a fellow blogger that lives in my actual COUNTY!!!! Shakerwood Prims! I have been following her for a while now and just realized that she was so close to me! We were talking of meeting up at a local park this weekend actually, but I will not be able to as I am working at the booth and then driving into Charlotte to work at the USO Saturday. Maybe sometime!

I am SO sorry..cannot get these pics in here straight for the LIFE of me!!!

Well, hope all is well with all of you! Enjoy this time ...before it gets too busy!
Have a great weekend!
