Miscellany Monday

Okay, just ask me if I'm excited about this gorgeous  "fall like" weather and my answer will be a very loud YES!  The past few mornings have been in the low 60's. Yep, I do believe that fall is just around the corner. 
1. This is my 150th blog entry. Yea! for me!  I began blogging on March 21, 2009 and little did I know that it would become one of my most pleasurable pastimes. And, I'm working to get to 50 followers, just 4 more to go!  Hint! Hint! I never knew there were so many wonderful folks out in "blogland" and what a joy it has been to get to know them.  I really think we need to have a huge blog convention (perhaps there is already something like that) where we could all meet each other. I have to remind myself at times that there really is more to life than blogging. ~smile~ In case you are interested, you can click here and read my very first entry. ~wink~And, one more tidbit about my blog - it is called CiCi's Corner because CiCi is what my "grans" call me. (I know all of you were interested in knowing that) ~giggle~

2.  We had a ladies event the other night at our church and I was so impressed with how the ladies decorated. It was not

fancy but it could not have been cuter! And, it was so happy looking too. I'm always looking for cute, quick and easy ways to do tablescapes.  Of course, it's hard for pink and green to

be anything but cute. Who would have thought that gift bags, balloons, tissue paper and iridescent Easter grass could make such cute decorations. And, grab some ferns and a couple of pot plants to "top off" either the head table or the food table and you've got it.  The decorations definitely added to the fun of the evening.

3. Am I the only person that desires to "fix"  situations? Is it the Mother in me?  I think perhaps it is. I especially want to "fix" any issues regarding  my family. After all, isn't that what a Mother is suppose to do?  But, anytime I get in that "fix it" mode, the Lord's still voice reminds me that HE is the only one capable of fixing and in His time and in His own way, He will.  He is the great "fixer!" What a comfort!

4. Yesterday I went on my "annual" trip to the woods with my Hubby.  We loaded up the Bad Boy Buggy and off we went.
I am not much of a "woods girl" but do enjoy going once or twice a year. It's an opportunity for me to enjoy nature and see where Hubby spends some of his most enjoyable times. Today was my first time to ride or drive 

the Bad Boy Buggy. It's a neat vehicle. It is considered a street vehicle so I may have to start running my errands on it. ~smile~  It was a perfectly beautiful day to be out in the woods. I guess I really should buy some camouflage clothes as I do like to "look the part" and I definitely did not today.  But, I'm such a "girly girl" that I somehow just cannot see myself in camouflage. ~giggle~

  5. You know Lea you can buy pink camouflage! Is there a Bass Pro Shops near you? ;) ~ This wouldn't work if you actually went on a hunting trip with hubby though. You'd give your hubby away to the deer!
