Posting is so Irratic !

OK, truth be known, we are still alive and well.  Enjoying our jobs as campground managers at Branson View Campground and enjoying the beautiful Fall weather.  For our hometown (Whatcom County Friends & Family) a drive around Branson and the surrounding area reminds us of driving Highway 20 over to Leavenworth ~ just beautiful.

Personally I am feeling a little weird? crazy? intentional or is it lack of intention? ~ oh yeah, just feeling ME!!

So I thought I would do something really random ~ the ABC song which has been sung to us by our sweet 4 1/2 year old grandson, Christopher many times over the past few months.  (By the way, we love having him sing to us!).  So my ABC's for today ~

A is for Apple Crisp which I made yesterday as a treat for hubby & me.

B is for Beautiful the view I see from our campsite as I step outside the door each morning to go to work.

C is for Color - there is so much color in the surroundings and we are loving every minute of it.

D is for Daring as Ron anticipates going on the Zip Line (thankful for the free tickets!)

E is for Eggs that went into our breakfast this morning.  I am getting so domesticated it is not funny:).

F is for Fun...something we try to do every day.  Today after work we are going to Silver Dollar City for a few hours ~ now that's fun!

G is for Grammy ~ that's me and the one job I love having!!!!

H is for Happy ~ that's me too as I relish all the many blessings of the Lord!!!

I is for Intentional ~ my word for the year that I have been pretty lax on this past month or so :(

J is Jobs ~ we are so thankful and so blessed to be here working in the beautiful Ozark Mountains.

K is for Keeping in Touch ~ love being able to stay in touch with family and friends through my blog, letters, email and Facebook.

L is for LOVE ~ I am blessed to be His Beloved, loved by a wonderful man of 36+ years, loved by our sons, daughter-in-law's and 4 of the best grandchildren in the world.

M is for Meatloaf ~ Ron's favorite dish and on the menu for this coming week.  Sh!! Don't tell him I want it to be a surprise.  Will also make Mashed potatoes and gravy and his favorite whole kernal corn.

N is for New ~ His blessings are NEW every morning!!

O is for Opportunity ~ each day I am given the opportunity to Love more, Live more and Be more!!!

P is for Pumpkin ~ one of my favorite flavors ~~~ pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bars, pumpkin coffee creamer

Q is for Quiet ~ I so enjoy my Quiet time each morning with the Lord.  A time to look at yesterday, plan for today and pray for many.

R is for Recipes ~ as I collect so many.  Now to just cooking up some of them

S is for Smile ~ something someone told me one day that I need to do more often.  And I am !!! and am so thankful for the encouragement I got from that person.

T is for Thankful ~ oh I could write a book on being thankful.  One of my current thanks is to all those who have prayed for, given too and encouraged me in my Eye Fund!!! (That was not a very good sentence BUT you get what I am thankful for right?  I need $2000 to get a new eye made.  And so far we have been given or pledged $1220 leaving only $780 more needed!!!  So thankful for the blessings that have showered on me/us :)

U is for Umbrellas ~ haven't used one since we left Washington state in January 2011.

V is for Victory ~ the victory I have being a daughter of the King
