Life is great! My husband was just home for a week and now he is back in North Dakota working hard for his family. Next on my agenda is my 6th annual Holiday Craft Boutique. Nov. 7, 8, and 9th and also Nov. 14, 15, and 16th. My friends help make wonderful items to sale and goodies to smell... I mean eat! Mmm! I take my furniture out of my living room and my dining room holds all the goodies on my extra long table. I burn pumpkin spice candles and play soft Christmas music and it is a wonderful two week ends.
    This year my personal theme is Nativities. I have made a couple quilts. A couple of sets of Ceramic figurines and other items reflecting Christ as a part of Christmas.  Plus other cutsie fun quick gift items. I can't wait to see what everyone else has made!
    I have written a short story about blessings to share with everyone that comes into the "store" along with last years "A Christmas Wish" short story. I will also have  "Darla's Decision" for sale at a special discount price for those who haven't bought a copy yet!
     I have my first edited copy of the second book of Orchard Grove series back and getting it ready to send to the next level of my new editors! I am excited for the next book in the series to head to print in the near future!
     The fall colors around Parma are gorgeous! I love Fall!
     Also, I want to include a special comment about my graduating class! They just had our 30th class reunion...and I had to miss it! I love to look at the pictures and see all those familiar faces! I went to school with some amazing people that I probably didn't appreciate enough while I was attending school with them! I hope life has treated them all well and I hope they are happy and blessed in their lives!
