September is here

I can hardly believe that September starts tomorrow! That is how life passes right in front of our eyes. The schools have already started around here and a lot of the wheat has been harvested. We had cooler days however this week we will have days a couple days nice and warm. I just looked and it says it's 78 degrees Fahrenheit (about 25 degrees Celsius) outside but it will gets cool in the evenings.
I don't have a pattern for the little bunny. I made it from my imagination. Embroidered on face since it's for a young child and needs to have no buttons of other removable parts.
 Got my order from Alicia Paulson. I really like the lotion bar.

 My lantanas did pretty well. Someone said they had it growing like weeds at her place. Well...I wish it was the case here. I had to pay plenty for two plants. Unfortunately it doesn't show that gorgeous shade of peach in photos.
 It is all done!!

 I made some chokecherries syrup for pancakes.

 Our neighbors have a couple horses in their land now and we can see them from our place. I walked closer to get a photo.
 Son is home with us and will stay till he gets the bar exam done and then he will try to get a job somewhere else. Thin plastic as table cover since we will have our grand baby visiting soon and we can count on spills.
 Made pesto with our abundance of basil.
 Loving these pink hydrangeas in front yard.
 Gifts for granddaughter
 Toys now a days are not all that different than the ones from my time. My grandma made some rag doll by hand that were relatively similar to this cat. I love dolls when I was little. What was your favorite toy as a child?

 Sometimes life is a bowl full of cherries.
 That is what we see when we are heading out of town.

May you have a wonderful September. We plan on a visit to an orchard and a country festival this month. Pumpkin buying and making pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, and many other recipes with pumpkin. Of course there will be lots of soups since we all love soups and "soup season" has started!
May your life have quiet moments, beautiful sunsets and lots of love! May the Lord be with each one of you!
P.S. If you new visiting here please leave a link to your blog or other sites you may have. I would love to visit your site.

    you live in a really beautiful area and such places with natural beauty and serenity awakens our sense of creativity so strongly which i can see through your dolls and embroidery ,really pretty!

    my grandma and mom had made me few small dolls of cloth which were so dear to me and i kept them with me until i lost them in an accident unfortunately but those precious memories still shine in my heart

    flowers are so pretty !

  2. Love the variety in your post. Your photos are beautiful!

    It sounds like your September will be filled with family too. Enjoy every minute!

  3. Time with your son and then your granddaughter. Life doesn't get any better.
    Dolls were by far my favorite toy when I was young.

  4. You do some fine needlework. Just so beautiful. That little bunny is adorable! Perfect for little ones hands. I must say my favorite doll and I wish I still had it, was my baby thumbelina. I so loved that doll. She had a wind up knob on her little back and she moved so sweetly.
    I did the same thing with the plastic tablecloths. My mom always kept one on hers when we were small.
    Chokeberry syrup is something I haven't had in ages. Looks so pretty in the jars.
    Your lantanas are so pretty. I like those plants as well and around here the plants were higher I thought than usual this year. Our nursery down the road was selling a good amount of flowers this year.
    My husband loves horses and we would love it if adjacent land had a few. I think they are such beautiful animals
    So enjoyed your post and seeing what you have been busy creating.
    I know you are enjoying time with your son and soon your grand daughter.
