My How Time Fly's

Hello my friends! I can't believe September has came and gone and now October is almost to an end!
Although I have been absent here! You have been in my prayers
I hope this new post finds you well...
So as the dusk begins to settle here, lets grab a nice hot cup of spiced cider and catch up.

I turned 42 on the 26th of September and I was unfortunately sick. Lupus has a mind of its own and does not ask permission before it decides to flare.
No matter well or sick each year is a gift that I am beyond thankful.
October has been busy for us as well.
I have enjoyed sometime crafting and sewing! It has felt nice to be able to do some of the things I love. Even if it is in small doses.
The weather is finally becoming cooler! However it can not seem to decide if it would like to be fall or go straight into winter.
 I am hoping that fall will actually be a possibility.
My husbands grandmothers rose bush wasn't going out with out one more hoorah!

Something tells me as much as I hope fall will be the plan, that most likely will not be the case! 
Either way my heart is excited for the changes to come!

What Is the weather like where you are?
The evenings here has given  away to the most beautiful evening skies!
Some of my favorite highlights over the past weeks have been the craft shows! I have met some amazing history re-enactors! 
I snapped a few pictures! I truly wish I had the energy to to do re-enactments

My daughter and I planned and prepared and Old Timey A Life Of Faith Autumn Pie Social.For the little girls at church. We had so much fun. Preparing decorations, making homemade bread cooked apples, and apple cake from scratch. 

The social turned out to be so much fun! The girls had a wonderful time learning to make butter and candles! They each brought a dessert made from scratch, that were judged. 
There were first, second, and third place prizes given.
 we had a wonderful afternoon! 
Below are some of the highlights of our afternoon!

Discussing why butter churning is hard work!
My how time flies I remember when I used to talk to my daughter that is shown here why churning butter was such hard work!

Candle making was so much fun! 

Dipping the wick into the wax 

Now into the water to set the wax

Even the smallest of helpers make a huge difference in butter making!

All the girls! I can not wait to the day we are doubled in size! We are missing a few due to illness!

 Its hard to believe that she is eighteen and is standing here beside me holding her two favorite dolls! Her first A Life of Faith Meeting she  was 7 1/2 years old!
Now she helps put the meeting on for little girls to experience the magic she so loved !
All in all September and October have been pretty amazing! All though there has been some highs and lows I am blessed with each and everyday I am given!
I pray that each of you have a blessed end to your October! I am getting super excited that in just a few short days I will be putting up my Christmas tree!!! Until next time, thanks for stopping by! I hope you are loved and blessed!

You did good! :) I'm so happy that you had some good days, and I'm so sad for the not so good days. I agree with you, I need some fall before its just cold! Hopefully nature will get the memo lol.
