Do I detect.....

 fall in the air? These past cool days........ cicadas chirping their tribute to summer's end & a spontaneous campfire are beckoning the next season. Oh, sure we have Indian summer ahead, brisk mornings and then the heat of day filled with combines peeling away the crops. {love harvest time}

 It was a busy weekend with some relaxing. We were late to church on Sunday and we were doing so good, don't know what happened at the tail end of the rush! {hmmmm}

I was glad we went, even though late, what an amazing uplifting way to start the week. We heard about belief, but do we trust as well? It's so easy for me to say I can do all this by myself, but if I hand over every little piddly thing to Him? It's amazing to see His hand in the big things + the wee things. Also, humble compassion was a perfect for my week ahead.
 My cup & plate are full {running over} at the moment. Taking deep breaths and tackling them one by one. I finished shooting an editorial piece last week, however need to retake some pics and then prep & write story to send off. I would love to post some tips I've learned. I'm no expert, but have some thoughts on this.

Also, a new lens is going to help me out a lot. I finally figured out what I need without breaking the bank!

I have a video to do of me, talking about thoughts of all things "home". The Creatively Made Home Ecourse is by the wildly talented Jeanne-- among others sharing advice & loads of creative ideas. {Along with tips, how-to's and of course videos of their homes!} Sign up here.

Sara Duckett, Jeanne Oliver, Kimberly Taylor, Tracey, Jennifer Rizzo are the main gals opening their homes to you!!

 This summer I went to Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's. My first time ever. Even thought they don't sell my favorite tents. I loved seeing some of the camping items. I'm not a camper, however a weekend here & there won't kill me. I do believe I prefer Bass Pro Shops over Cabela's. 

 I have this crazy dream to learn fly fishing . Yes, you heard me right & owning a horse. Matt told me promptly that I don't have the gumption nor the patience for taking care of a horse. He's right, but they are so pretty. I have ridden one once.....& it was, I'm sure of it, the shortest time anyone has been on a horse. :)
 This photography class I went to was so fun & relaxing. It was hosted by Jill & Belle and the location was at Barb's property waaaaaaay down by the river.  It was lovely indeed. Goodness, I have so much to learn! The class gave me a new interest in my camera again. The iphone has been my quick, go to camera as of late!

Enjoy your Monday--I have some more share with you!

The photography party looked so fun. Wish I was closer. I would really love a close-up lens for my camera, but with house projects to spend money on, it is waiting! Have fun if you get another lens.

My daughter thinks she would love to have a horse. They are pretty, but a LOT of work!
