A new day

Here is a pic of the new day rising. I cant wait to see what God has for me to learn today what about you? Are you excited about your new day?
Ive been crocheting a new pattern to me, but a very vintage (1910) pattern that someone asked me to work up Im almost done with it. Ita going to be very pretty. Ill post a pic as soon as Im finished. If I think about it Ill take a pic before Im finished. What have you all been up to?
 Have you started your CHRISTmas crocheting/knitting yet?
Ive started but I cant say what because maybe just maybe someone is reading my posts.
Im excited about fall, cooler weather and crisp air and Thanksgiving wow all the fall veggies. I cant wait to see what the farmers market has in store for me this year. I love getting new exciting veggies to make. Ive been on Pinterest getting new recipes and patterns for the fall and CHRISTmas. Have you got something exciting going on in your neck of the woods?
I know not a lot of people read this blog but lets just think of this blog as a well kept secret? what do you all think?
Ive got a recipe for my favorite soup for the fall or just a cooled down day coming next week so look for it!

This has been a bad week for me very sad indeed. My sweet pound puppy Bella went to heaven last Monday. She was very sick and it came on very fast. Nothing we could do for her but help her go peacefully.
I will miss her very much. My hubby got her from the pound for me one very bleak day. She brightened my day immensely. She was so happy to be with me and I loved her totally. She loved everybody that came into our home and they all loved her right back.
My friend Karen says she was alot older than what the pound , they said she was just a puppy but my friend said she was more like 2 to 3 years old. That would make her alot older when she passed.
I hope you all play a little more with your fur babies and that you remember those that have gone ahead of us
