September was and is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Well, I had planned to do this post the
 first part of September, but I guess 
better late than never! 
 September is Ovarian Cancer
 Awareness Month (among other
 awareness causes)and in honor
 of my friend Marie and her 10 year
 anniversary of surviving ovarian cancer
 I thought I would share 2 past posts  
I did in 2011.
She is still going strong !  
 Love you Marie !

Give-away details 

The secret of health for 
both mind and body is not
 to mourn for the past, worry
 about the future, 
or anticipate troubles,
 but to live
 in the present moment
 wisely and earnestly.

Off with their heads and a blue button.

First, a reminder that my give-away

 followers before the winner is picked.
Please click HERE for details
on how to win.

Well, the deer are still around and 
ate my new pansies!  I moved them
 closer to the house thinking they
 would be ok until I got them planted,
 but I was wrong!  Little rascals. 
 Now we really need to do something
 to block them off the patio area and 
have it look nice too.  :o)

And I need to pull my buttons during
 the day instead of night.  I'll have to
 re-do this bracelet and change the 
blue button to black!

I love this quote.

Bonfire and yummy salad

Saturday night we had a nice bonfire.

We ate a grilled chicken salad with 
pears, walnuts, sungold tomatoes
 and gorgonzola cheese, topped 
with  a balsamic vinaigrette
by the fire and moonlight.

The weather was perfect.

Even Petey Pumpkin thought so!

 We are still having our giveaway.
