Has been a few days...OK months.... since I posted something new here.
Was a busy summer... hubby was gone a few times for his Logistics Chief duties on Incident Management Team #5. And he missed a couple fire trips in order to attend the annual family reunion, and a special trip to the Oregon coast.
Had a great summer of gardening. Hubby did most of the work, and I got to harvest the goodies. Love it!!
I planted a crazy row of Zinnias. You don't have to harvest them;
we just get to enjoy the colors!
Volunteer sunflowers grew 10-12 feet high. I love the happy sunflower faces!
Looking west in mid-July. Pumpkins in the foreground,
with zucchinis next, sunflowers, tomatoes and more!
We enjoyed a great few days at Seaside with our daughters and granddaughters. For hubby's 60th birthdayr, our girls booked a nice rental home a few blocks from the ocean in our favorite area on the northern Oregon coast.
The weather wasn't great,
but the time with our kids and grandbabies was marvelous.
Both the little girls love to read,
thanks to mamas and daddies who read to them every day.
We used to camp at Ft. Stevens, and had to make a nostalgic trip
to the south jetty. Was WINDY and cold, but still a wonderful place.
The day before we left, the weather broke and we got to dig in the sand,
walk the beach and enjoy the beauty of the Oregon coast. Awesome!
Now the holiday season is in full swing, and I have several fun projects queued up. Can't share cuz someone might see... :)
My outside white lights are up, but not turned on. I do think it must be time!!
And we had our first dusting of snow... snow shovels are out and firewood is waiting on the front porch.
Thanks for visiting!!

Despite the chilly weather...my flowers are looking good.
This is a rose that D's grandma planted, and we moved to our house.
The pink blooms welcome visitors at our back door.
This is a gazania bloom.. they fold up if the sun is not shining!
Looks like I am leaning toward pink this year! :)
