Sundays on Silverado #69

Life Lately Life doesn’t always go as planned, and “Life Lately” has put us on a journey we didn’t see coming. I had this post pre-scheduled to auto-post during what I anticipated to be a busy holiday weekend filled with a big family Thanksgiving dinner, and lots of decorating and shopping. That’s not how it turned out at all. I’m back quickly today to adjust my post and ask for your prayers. It’s not my place to share the details […]

Sundays on Silverado #68

Life Lately Thanksgiving/Christmas I feel like I have a leg in two worlds right now–Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m preparing for the family Thanksgiving feast, but also trying to get a jump start on some of my Christmas decor and shopping. I’m not putting my big 9-foot tree up yet, because I want Thanksgiving to feel like Thanksgiving, ya know? But, I am putting a few things up that I need for blog posts–like a fun Winter Woodland Garland on my […]

Life Lately Baby shower #2 is in the books now. We traveled to the Iowa City area for an adorable shower hosted by my daughter’s mother-in-law this time. My son-in-law owns his own construction company, so his mom used a “pink construction” theme for the shower and it was perfection! The shower was held in a historic town hall building, which just added to the charm. After the shower, we spent the afternoon at the in-laws’ house, and then all […]

Happy Halloween, friends! Life Lately Ahhhh, we’re spending this weekend just taking it easy after last weekend’s baby shower bash. It was wonderful, but boy was I exhausted after. We had absolutely perfect fall weather the Saturday of the shower, and then the next day it rained so much that it broke a 100-year-old rainfall record here in Iowa. I was relieved that we had such a lovely day for the baby shower, and I actually didn’t mind the rain […]

Life Lately Fall Harvest Season It’s that time of year here in Iowa when the farmers are working hard to bring in the crops. As I was preparing to make dinner last night, this was my view out the kitchen window… A wide-open pasture, some horses, and a tractor working the farm field beyond. It’s very “Iowa”, and I love it. You know how some people have bucket lists that contain things like riding in a hot air balloon or […]

Life Lately Although I love fall, I’m not a fan of winter–not the cold, nor the early nightfall it brings with it. These two photos illustrate how much daylight we are losing on a daily basis. They were both taken at almost exactly 7 pm, just six days apart. The sun doesn’t lie…. winter is on its way. After waiting for it to come back in stock for months, I finally got my hands on this white hobnail bowl for […]
