We were in Pennsylvania last weekend.  The leaves are already turning.  It was so pretty.  I love the property that my brother and his sweet wife have bought.  There are mountains all around, and they live up a mountain and down an gravel road.

This is the field beside their house.  It is almost like a plateau up there.

This is the entrance to their house.  I love these Blue Spruce.

Their house is up around the corner.
  Nel and Rose are working on an addition to their house,
 so I am not going to show a progress picture.
It will be lovely when it is done.

I do not envy people as a rule.  I’ve been so blessed.  But I do struggle sometimes to not envy all of my brothers for one specific thing.  Each of them has grandbabies.

This is Isabella.  She is a precocious, precious little girlie. 
I sincerely enjoy talking to her.

And this is my lovely Sister in Love, Rose,
in her busy kitchen.

On Saturday, we canned applesauce for Isabella and Sophia’s family.  Nel and Rose’s son, Myron, and his beautiful wife, Abby, came and we had a wonderful time together.  The trip was a much needed break for this gal.  Certain Man and I enjoyed it immensely.

It’s been another busy week at Shady Acres. 
One of the high points of the week
was a bridal shower for this lovely lady:


Linda's Shower 1
Lord willing, On November 8th, Linda Wilson Wright will become Mrs. J.R. Campbell.

And guess what else????
I’m cleaning my study . . . again.
 Somebody, please, pity me!

  1. Mary I pitied you but I was so caught up in all my clutter and crud that I didn’t comment. Problem is I’m still not done.I’d love a picture of your accomplishments. Loved the post of your time up at Nels. I feel so blessed by both of my families!!! Love them all!

  2. Your day will come when you will have grandbabies, too, I am sure!Congrats on getting rid of your clutter! I will be glad when I get my house in order. It seems to be taking me forever.

  3. Sorry – I didn’t pity you. I was too busy pitying myself as I accomplished the same task. (Check my two posts from yesterday!) So where in PA were you? Just curious.

  4. I would have pitied you if I had known. Cleaning isn’t my cup of tea, but I just love the results!

  5. you are one busy lady. 🙂

  6. one thing I do know, you will be a wonderful fun Grandma someday!! I would have pitied you,I was  busy cleaning out the drawer where all my cassette tapes are……….. anyone want some? 🙂 jk….

  7. Wait until you see where we were today!!  I recognize those people.

  8. You’re just shower central over there.  You’ll be surrounded by babies soon!
