Spreading The Love & A Song For The Acorns


Spreading The October Love

Time to thank each of you who commented in the month of October! You joined me on my journey as I moved Nellie to town, cooked up some of Granny’s Pear Preserves, got scared in the moonlight, remembered Papaw, made some mudpies, discussed poverty and fatalism in Appalachia, went on a fall look see, scared my kids, scared myself with burial customs, and laughed at Granny’s thoughts on computers-and I’m proud to say-you have left insightful comments each step of the way.

I’m sending a big THANK YOU out to each of you:

5 Christmas cards-handmade by me!

Hope all you Acorns enjoyed the song-as much as I enjoy your comments.

    I always enjoy my time spent here as you all make me feel at home. Pap and Paul are naturals when it comes to playing. I so enjoy hearing them, as you well know.
    Tipper, those are some beautiful cards. You’ve got great scrapbooking skills as they look like they should be in a book.
    Thank you for making us all your little acorns. That’s a lovely analogy. xxoo

    Tipper: It always makes my heart feel wonderful to hear Paul and Pap singing and playing in the kitchen. I do remember this song and was one I really enjoyed.
