more good stuff...

It's been far too long since I've done a "good stuff" post. I'm so blessed and so grateful for so many things...

*all the wonders of fall















*photos (especially when I'm really missing someone)




















*wonderful parents who spoil my kiddos















*prizes...and even better, kind, generous people who go out of their way to make other people happy (This is the prize package I got from Carl from this spring's tiny story contest. Isn't he amazing?!!)















*pupper dogs (Oh, he can be quite a little handful at times, but one look at that face, and I just melt!)




















*Poppets! My first! (There are actually two more hidden away for me, a purple one and an orange one, for under the Christmas tree. Subtle hints, like pulling up the eBay screen and saying, "Gee, that would make a really good Christmas present!" do sometimes pay off.) And again, I might mention kind, generous people...for along with the Poppet, Lisa Snellings-Clark, artist extraordinaire, included the cool pin and bookmark and even some Halloween candy, which the boys promptly claimed for themselves.

Yeah, I can tell that autumn's arriving (although it's always summer here, hmph!)...

Nice poppet! I have thought of getting one myself, I'm still fiddling with the idea though...

Great pics! Thanks for sharing, Debi!

Wonderful pictures! The first one makes me excited about the hayride we are supposed to be going on this weekend!

You learn something new every day! I had to look up "poppet" but now I know what they are. You should bring back your Wednesday words--I would have missed on that one.

Oh wow, these are great photos! I really love that first one, it looks so autumnal, and that picture of Annie is great :)

Those are wonderful things to be grateful for :) And that is a great prize pack! Carl really is one of a kind.

And a black Poppet! I ordered one as well; I can't wait to get it. It should take a while, actually, because there was a Royal Mail strike that lasted almost a week and made the mail super slow...I'm still waiting for all my university books I ordered weeks ago, so I will have to wait for the Poppet, but oh well :P Let me turn blabbing mode off now :P

Never even heard of Poppets...I'm out of the loop!

I have been reading Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum novels (One for the Money, etc.). Cute little books and a quick read!

Great pictures, love that first one! It's finally feeling a bit fallish here at times.
