I’ve been told I love to ramble on, so why not pass along some of my ramblings from this past month.
My mom had her second lung surgery this month to remove the bottom lobe of her left lung. For someone in her 80’s, she is such a trooper. She was in and out of the hospital in 3 days and back home to recover. I am so fortunate to have a brother who was willing to come to Florida to help her with this surgery. We’ve learned a lot about cancer and being a caregiver. Its been a long 2 months but the chemo will start in the next few weeks when she is healed from this last surgery. On to the next step.
School is in full swing for everyone and I am so enjoying all the 1st day of school pictures. Even though my son is almost 40 years old, he still has his 1st day of school since he is a teacher. He loves teaching music. I hope everyone has a wonderful school year!!
Are you a Stranger Things fan as much as I am? When I saw these t-shirts, I had to get one. Just to let you on a little secret, the shirt brand used for these t-shirts are the same ones used for the Magnolia Store. They are super soft!! They come in several designs and colors from the show.

A must trip in the fall is to visit the Great Smoky Mountains and to view all of its glory. Beautiful trees, waterfalls, and all the fun fall activities. Another great place to go in the fall is Madison, GA or any town in the Antebellum Trail. If you love festivals and crafts, you must go to the Cotton Pickin Fair in Georgia.

Just ramblin’ on,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
