Anyone have a little energy they can share?

I can't get over how incredibly tired I am!!!
Being a Mimi is hard work...but the most precious work of all, don't you think?
We colored together today...and told stories...

I'm on the cusp of turning 50 and can hardly keep up
with my sweet Clara, a mere 2 1/2!

Today's post is filled with more gorgeous Master's paintings for you...
Can't you see them on the front of handmade cards?
(remember to click them twice for the largest size :)

Plus a few glimpses from our visit to my mom and dad's house
in the GA mountains last year in the fall.

It was so dad has a rep for driving "just a little" too fast
and here I am with my camera hanging out the window and I could barely
get a decent shot because we were pushing 60 mph!!!!

I finally had to tell my dad to PLEASE slow down
so I can get some beautiful photos of the leaves :)

Isn't it funny how each of our family members have "little things" like that?
I admit it, when I was young, I drove like a crazy banchee!!!
And I SO got it honest!
But the more children I had, I finally calmed down a bit, thank goodness....
the traffic tickets were killing me and our insurance premium!

We going to have more fallish temps in Georgia this weekend
and YOU KNOW I'll be in HEAVEN!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday my dear friends,
hugs and love,

What a beautiful crimson tree! I love those individual trees that turn vibrant colors all by themselves before the rest of the woods seems to catch up, don't you? :) I hope the rest of your week is cool, comfortable, and colorful!

PS, don't forget to check out the giveaway I'm hosting over at The Modest Peacock! :)

Those trees look so beautiful with all their different colours.
I love autumn, and the smell after it rains in the forest.
Now I'm stuck here in the desert and nature looks the same the whole year round... boring!

I am looking forward to being a Grandma one day - can't wait to have an excuse to color again! :)
Love your gorgeous photos Dawn - Georgia is such a beautiful state (but hot and humid too) son was stationed at Fort Benning and later Fort Stewart...I was blessed to see parts of the state while he was in the service. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Thank you for sharing all your photos and clip art. Your work is so creative. I'm keeping up with a 3 yr old grandson. lol

Vee said...

Your parents live in a beautiful corner of the world. Glad that your dad obliged and slowed down enough for you to capture those lovely scenes.

Lovely images today, too. Always a treat to find what you have here.

A mere youngster you are, Dawn. Just a kid!

It is my favorite season of all. i can't wait for the trees to start changing. "merci" for always making the time to stop in and leave such sweet words on my blog posts! they make me smile! ;)

Dawn ~ You are so cute ! I say that all the time that it is a really good thing that I had my kids young because there is no way that I could be a new mom right now ~ I am the same age as you and needing a grandbaby so badly! I can't wait!!


Rhonda said...

How beautiful your state is, your images take my breath away. Those rolling hills, colorful trees, they turned out beautifully.

Oh thank you for posting these beautiful fall photos Dawn! I am leaving Saturday with my hubby and my fur babies to go on a 3 week road trip across the country to Pa and back to Az! The thought of those cool fall temps and the beautiful fall colors is making me giddy!!!

I love your blog. You inspire me. Keep posting the beautiful art and scenery. I live in Dallas Tx and no beauty here. I am from England originally and I do so miss the beauty of the countryside. You are so blessed to live in a picturesque part of America.
