Autumn is my favorite season. 

I love the colors, the sounds, the smells, the very air. It invigorates and energizes me. It gets me excited and ready to do anything. I love my walks even more this time of year. The whole season seems to clear my head and enable me to really think about stuff. I guess you could call me an Autumn junkie. lol One way or the other though, I love it. But, the turning of the season doesn't mean life slows down any. I'm still running around with everyday life plus additional activities. But I'm having a wonderful time in the midst of the chaos. A wonderful time enjoying the colors, sounds, smells, walks, and busyness because I get to do it all with the Lord by my side. He has made everything so beautiful and is making a beautiful thing out of my life one day at a time. I don't deserve His love and mercy yet I find myself the receiver of it each and every day. 
I haven't been on in awhile so I just wanted to drop you all a line to let you know that I'm still here. :-) I hope that you all are having a blessed Autumn as well!

PS The photo is actually from my phone from one of my walks on my favorite trail. :-)

Summer 2012! A Blessed Time :-)

It has been a crazy but wonderful Summer. :-)

Got to see two dear friends get married (one of them in Texas - Road Trip!)

 Attempted to get an amazing sunset...decided I need a better lens.

Celebrated the 4th of July with family :-)

Went to Bible camp and heard some amazing preaching while having a wonderful time!

 Hosted our 8th annual youth rally which was maybe the best we've had yet! A truly blessed time! 

Had a birthday part :-)

And even remembered to grab my camera for a few amazing moments. :-)

Such as almost catching lightning on film for the first time in a long time.

I've definitely kept busy but it's all been good and each step of the way I've been reminded in so many ways how blessed I am. Life always has it's ups and downs but this year it really has been more ups than downs. Or maybe I'm just learning better how to trust the Lord... Either way I'm thankful and give all the glory to my amazing, loving, wonderful Lord. :-) I hope that your Summer has been just as amazing.

Summer is here...

Or at least the busy part is! lol
Well, as you all can see I have failed miserably at the 365 posts. I think it's been a month today since my last one. And the days are only going to get busier. Thinking I'm going to give up for now. :-/ I will try to keep posting more often than I was before but I don't think it's going to be every day. lol It did help me get back to picking up my camera more often which is good and was part of the goal. I even took a specific 365 photo some days...just didn't get it transferred to the computer... lol Oh well. I tried! I and partially succeeded. And won't be actually giving up in that I will continue to post periodically thought it won't be every day of the year. lol Maybe I'll try again next year... :-)
Of course I can't leave you without posting a photo on this post so here ya go. :-P

One of the things we did this week while Spring cleaning! We've had the shelf for a bit and I finally got it up in the kitchen and I love it! It's so pretty!

It's Spring Cleaning time!!! And we've been working on it all week. I have to be honest though and say that not only was it my sister's doing but she's done the bulk of the work as well. I hadn't actually caught the "Spring Cleaning Bug". lol 
I will say though, things look a lot better! Did some much needed de-cluttering and organizing. :-)

I greatly dislike it when the photo comes out blurry. But then I'm too lazy to disconnect the camera and shoot a couple more. lol

My new friend, Lula Belle. :-)

She belongs to a lady I help take care of and she is the sweetest bird. I just love Parakeets. :-) But! She didn't like my phone! lol She would sit on her perch and chat with me (Yes! She talks to me! It's so cute!) until I put the phone up to snap a photo and then she'd jump up into her corner. lol

Today there were butterflies all over the neighbors Lilac bush! Well...all over being a relative term but I would say there were a couple dozen at least. :-) I was only able to take a few shots though because my card was full! So frustrating!!! I wanted to shoot and shoot!

Lots of fun. :-)

So last night (the 16th), I'm laying in bed almost asleep when I realize that though I thought of taking multiple photos all day ... I didn't take any. So I bleary eyed pull my phone out ..... and shoot a photo of the TV as I'm laying in bed. LoL! Hey! At least there's a photo on today's post! :-P

You just never know what you'll run across at our house just laying around...

My brother's door knob. lol

Oh, and it was still raining today. :-)
This is just part or what we call Lake Riverside. And it only got bigger as it continued to rain all day!

Now I'm off to bed because I'm pooped and tomorrow will only come too soon and it's fillin' up already!

In Nebraska "Spring" is a synonym tornadoes. We had 3 run through town this evening along with a lot of hail. I heard there was some larger hail than what we have but what got me was how much there was!

It almost looked like it had snowed! lol

It's the little things in life...

Things like "Peel here" corners. :-P

We had rain on and off all day today. It was so pretty! This is a tree across the street from my house. 

I just loved the contrast of the dark, wet, trunk with the green of the new leaves. :-)

Some days are just "old fashioned fried potatoes for supper" days. :-)

My 100th 365 post! Woohoo! Well...I did miss a few in the middle... lol Oh well. :-) Still an exciting milestone.

We have a Lilac bush outside our house, it's actually the neighbors, and I just love it in early Spring when it blooms. I could inhale that scent all day. Makes me heady. :-) I love, love, love the scent of Lilacs.

The way cool gift that my brother made for our good friend's birthday!

Oh! I'm home!!!! Had a wonderful, wonderful visit but was definitely excited to see my family again. :-)
