Pumpkin Farm...

In effort to actually go apple picking this year... we ran out of days and then before we knew it, the apple picking was over.  So, we went to a pumpkin patch/farm instead.  It's a place that we went when we were in grade school but I don't remember that. 

It was a nice time with the fam...  We walked around the grounds for a bit, then we had lunch at their deli and headed back to the pumpkin patch for a little fun...

This is a man making apple butter, YUM!

Check out that corn stalk horse?  Cow? And my brother and mom next to it... crazy what they can create out of just about anything.

There were lots of families there and I think we might have been the oldest family there without and little kids, but that's okay.  We still like to enjoy the holidays with or without little ones.  We have each other and that's what matters the most.

As you can tell, some of the members of our family were ready for this pictures and others were not... AND some of us got ice cream and others did not.  Although there was effort to try and share, I still missed the boat on the whole ice cream adventure.  I think that was mainly because I was too distracted by their little itty bitty hay bails that they were selling.  Of course, I had to get my hands on one of those!  duh.

Boy is he tall!

And boy and I short...

Then after I picked out a few pumpkins for my house, we were off to the frisbee golf course that my brother loves and has told us a lot about... however we had never been, so we went.  It was really nice.  Here's a shot...

What a great day with the family... I'm grateful for these moments...

Fun! Fall has so many fun activities!

Also, I think you should post pictures of the teeny hay bales...
That looks like a blast!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
