Sunshine On My Shoulder . . .

I look for sunshine in each of my days
my daughter sent me these photos of
little miss almost eighteen month old
learning how to walk in boots
quite the trick for a newbie
 she kept right on trying
and then the smile

best pumpkin I have ever seen
 a birthday gift to mister irish garden house
outdoor oldie selfie
just for you

this is the pillow I will be painting
thanks to

Siena Italy
a friend has been visiting in Italy the past few weeks
this is one of her photos . . . I loved it
I have been in Siena, but missed this delightful sculpture
a visit to the
Muskegon Farmer's Market
is always a treat
and many fresh fruits and veggies come home with me
grandson Jordon and his friend at Homecoming
I love those smiles
cooler weather has brought out the soup pot
Wild Rice Spinach
Red Skin Potato
White Chicken Chili
Chicken Noodle
Vegetable Beef
are a few I have made in the past few weeks
my days seem to be
how about you
almost mid October
I hope you are finding some sunshine in your days
and enjoying a beautiful autumn
Be Kind To One Another
Love, Lynne

Looks like it was a great week! I agree--that pumpkin is perfect. I can already imagine an elongated face on it, or just displaying it like it is! Your granddaughter is SO cute!

A pot pourri of wonderful things Lynne .... our grand daughter is 15 months old and still wobbly on her feet !!
Brilliant art and, we've been to Siena and I didn't see that sculpture either ....perhaps it's new !!
Happy Autumn and enjoy all of those comfort foods !! XXXX.

You have been a busy girl! SO glad you won...I bet your pillow will be beautiful...but not nearly as sweet as that baby. She is turning into quite the fashionista! ;)

You have been busy Lynne! What a cutie Little Miss is. I love her pink coat. Yes, it's soup weather for sure and we've enjoyed a new one to us this past week. Take care and enjoy these lovely fall days. Hugs. Pam

Those times with out babies go so fast. Your daughter captured a beautiful moment in her life.
Ever so nice pumpkin in an ever so nice post. I loved the whole thing. I've never been to Italy but know some who have and it sounds like a delightful place.

Oh she is a cats meow my Mom used to say when she seen sweethearts like your little dumpling in her boots. Love the pictures.

As I scrolled down I liked the rest and yourself.

And the fence.

Have a great day my Lady. Lots of sunshine here.

Nice post. - The fence was fine and I so enjoyed seeing you and your family. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves and time spent with each other.

Well, your cutie in her boots is adorable. Aren't they just the cutest at this age, that great age of discovery. Always enjoy your posts, so full of good thoughts and images. Love seeing you and your sweetheart and those soups sound so delicious. It's time to get the soup pot out and start cookin'. Hugs!!
