~ This Past Weekend ~

This past weekend, Ken and I along with two other couples whom are good friends of ours, went up to Clarkdale, Arizona to board the Verde Canyon Railride. I had done this day trip about twelve years ago and remember that it was simply splendous, especially at this time of the year.

The day was in the mid 70's, clear, crisp and cool as we traveled aboard the train's historic trip along the Verde River. As you can see, from the photos, it is teaming with trees, wildlife, and endless beauty. Surely, this is the most beautiful place to be blessed to live in, this awesome, diverse state of Arizona.

~ Keira & Kaely ~

Things have been quite busy in my life since becoming a Grandma. I go and help out with the girls a few times a week and I devour every single, precious moment that I spend with them. Now I know what it means to be a doting grandma, for sure.

Hope that you like the picture of the "girls". They are even cuter in person.

~ Love, Linda

~ Fall's Harvest ~

Here it is, the end of September with Fall on our minds...the summer finally coming to an end for this year...and, indeed, what a year this has been!

My little sister Angela, my nephew Thomas and her fiance Rich came to visit Arizona. We all met at our home in Prescott and had a wonderful time as family with my DH Ken and our two doggies, Sean and Bebe. It was a full house!

We cooked ate and toured the Prescott area and found some lovely places to make memories. We went to the Heritage Park Zoo and strolled around downtown and simply enjoyed ourselves at home in the cool temps of the High Country.

We visited with family far and wide in Arizona. My sister and I have an aunt in Sun City and met with her for dinner one evening. My son Joseph, his fiance Becky and all of us came together for a BBQ one Saturday evening where my DH made his famous rub for flank steak.

And, of course, we went to see "The Girls", Keira and Kaely. The new family are doing fine and I enjoy visiting and helping out with feeding, changing and loving them up.

So, you see. all of the Love that has grown this year has just blossomed exponentially from family and friends. I am in awe as Autumn approaches and we count our Blessings this season.

Love to All...

~ The Girls Have Arrived! ~

Last evening I had the blessed opportunity to welcome into this world my two adorable granddaughters Keira Kathleen who weighed 4 lbs. 7 oz. and Kaely Kathryn who weighed 5 lbs. 12 oz. They were born at 9:08 and 9:09 PM at Scottsdale Healthcare Hospital here in Arizona. My son Artie and dear daughter in law Angie are the happy parents and everyone is doing fine. The girls are like little dolls, I got to see them shortly after their birth.

This afternoon I am planning on visiting the happy family and taking some photos of everyone. I will post them later.

~ Blue Fantasy Dress Card ~

Blue Fantasy Dress was created for my monthly Dine n Swap group this month. I Love this dress stamp and had to use it for swapping and sharing with my fellow card making enthusiasts. Please enjoy!

~ Today ~

This past weekend has been amazing. My sister and I own a home in Prescott, Arizona and I spent Saturday through Tuesday there, getting it ready for her visit when she arrives Saturday September 6 with her significant other and son, my favorite nephew, Thomas.

Being up in the "High Country" as it is known here in Arizona is so very different than living anywhere in the entire world. Prescott is a small town, and definitely has its' own character and flavor. There is a town square where people gather at differing times of the day for various purposes. Along the parameters are shops and restaurants to wander in and out of and through and catch a bite to eat or a drink to quench one's thirst.

The air is crisp, clean and invigorating to all of one's senses and I definitely got that feeling for having been there for a slightly extended stay this time.

This past Tuesday, I met my dear friend Nancy for lunch at the Victorian Tea Room which is located near town. Upon entering, I immediately caught her eye and was also delightfully captured by the ambiance that the tea room exuded.
The food and company were most memorable and I hope to visit there and have lunch and tea with friends, old and new in the not too distant future.

Just thought that I would share some of my in state get away time with you all.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

God Bless,
