Hello, It's Me Again Margaret

I had gathered a bunch of old scrabble games back in my scrapbooking days and never used them. I wanted to use some of the stuff I have gathered up around here (just in case I move) so am recycling and reusing. I actually love this and I am keeping one for myself. I think I might hang it on the wall with all my gameboards. Well with a real picture in it of course.
It rains almost every day and when it rains it pours. Literally!

The leaves on my maple tree are starting to turn colors already. This summer has just flown by.

A fall fence I am working on. Still need to add something

Stick pumpkins, just something fun.

Christmas in July at The Olde Country Cupboard. I won these Beeswax gingerbread men. Two large ones, 4 smaller ones, and four boots. I am so excited. The picture didn't come out too great but these are fantastic.

A couple of the smaller ones.

Again not a great picture but I will get the whole camera thing figured out. I think I need a new one for Christmas.
Well I am still alive and busy busy. Summer is slipping by and the beautiful crisp fall weather is not far away. I am still looking forward to a day of relaxing. I am going to put in on the calendar and do it. For real this time. Maybe I will schedule an hour to start, work myself up to a whole day.
Okay I have a plan.
Be back later. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
