    Hello all!

    Happy 1st day of October.  This is the month I prepare myself for a few extra pounds due to Halloween bite sized candy snacking! :)   Bring on the little chocolate bars! 

    There’s so much breaking news right now, and the weather has been (relatively) quiet, so here’s an open blog to chat.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friend Margie who’s mom passed away last night.   We’re thinking of you Margie.   

    I love this quote by Helen Steiner Rice, and thought it would be comforting:

    After the clouds, the sunshine; after the winter, the spring; after the shower, the rainbow; for life is a changeable thing. After the night, the morning, bidding all darkness cease, after life’s cares and sorrows, the comfort and sweetness of peace.



My sympathies to Margie on the death of your Mother.God keep you in his care.Prayers follow for your peace and comfort.

Hi all. Looks like our weather has calmed down and the rest of the week will be normal. No real damage done by our winds other than that little tornado that hit south of Seattle. My sister lives there and says it about like a normal NW winter blow. Our local weather people on ABC, CBS, and NBC tend to exaggerate. FOX and the NW Weather Channel do a good job though. It snowed up on the mountain passes this week, maybe we'll get some ski slopes open before Thanksgiving this year.

My condolences to you Margie on the death of your Mother. May you find God's peace and comfort during these days. What a beautiful day here. The sunshine is gorgeous with temps around 80 degrees. Time to close the cottage for this season on Saturday with the entire Terpstra family. Another reminder that Summer is gone and Autumn is here. What a beautiful time of the year. Enjoy your loved ones, and let them know how much you care and love them. Audrey

Good grief, you call something an open blog and you never know what you're going to get. Hey to all the regular bloggers out there. Janice, thank you so much for sharing the words from Helen Steiner Rice. I love her work and the words you shared are very comforting. Thank you and God bless you. Thanks again to all my blogging family. You're a special bunch! May God bless all of you. Margie

50 million Americans can't afford healthcare. At 200 dollars a month it's only 10 billion a year to pay for their insurance. Why is obamas plan calling for 100 billion a year?
