A Fall Walk

 Hello, Readers! Yesterday, after my singing lesson, Liberty thought it would be fun to walk our dogs in the park near my teacher's house.
 First, we stopped at the Library and I checked out "A Week in the Woods" which had been recommended to me by a friend.
"Wow, look at that!" said Liberty. "Beautiful, isn't it?" I replied, picking a leaf to press.

At first, when we got to the park we collected some pretty leaves, also to press.  Very soon, Liberty turned that into a game of tag.  So, when we finally settled down to walk our dogs (which had been tied to the fence) we were almost hot.
 "Isn't fall such a blessing?" I asked. "Oh yes," Liberty answered," I can't imagine just skipping from summer to winter. Then again, in winter there's snow, Christmas, seeing Rissa....." she sighed. "So many Blessings."
I started to sing, and Liberty joined me. "When upon life's billows you are tempest tossed, When you are discouraged thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings - name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord has done."  "Count your blessings!" we sang as we walked along the path.

What do you do when you go to the park?

My afternoon with Jubilee

 Warning:  Long post. Over 16 pictures.
Now, before you say anything, I'm very, very sorry we haven't  been posting and we should be ashamed of  our selves. Marie- Grave and I have been trying to get a better schedule for blogging.
Now, to get on with the post.
 "There's nothing to do!" I cried, throwing out my arms.
 " Why don't you make something, or play with Caramel? said Marie, who was putting away fall clothes.
 "Do you think I'm about to make something when you just hand sewed that dress in two days?" I asked,   "and Caramel's to sleepy to play."
"Then why don't you call Jubilee and see if she and Addy would like to come over." Marie replied, closing the drawer.
 "What a great idea! I'll call her now!"
 In no time at all Jubilee was at my House. "IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU, LIBBY! I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU SINCE, LIKE, POPCORN DAYS!" was my greeting. 
 Red Ribbon was excited to see Vanilla, to!
 I suddenly got an idea, and whispered it to Jubilee. "That sounds great!" she said.
 We turned on my favorite CD (Rachel Scott, Sons and Daughters) and then danced to it.
 I tried a few moves...........
 .........Then Jubilee.
 Crazy, Huh?

 Until then, Addy and Marie-Grace had been talking quietly,but when they noticed Jubilee's handstand, they suggested that we all have a snack.
 There was however, a very slight emergency, when Caramel, (who was now very much awake) and Red Ribbon stole our Cookies!
 (We did, by the way, manage to get them back  before the dogs slobbered all over them.)
 After that,we all watched Snow White.
 So, to sum it all up, we had tons and tons of fun.
What do you do when you invite friends over?
