Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth. Thomas S Monson

"That's what people do who love you.  They put their

Beautiful Fall

 
It's been a long and very mild fall here in northern Utah.
 
I love the changing of the seasons and I
 
love this beautiful tree in our front yard.
 
 
Isn't she pretty?
 

 
 
The mums are blooming.
 

The porch is all decked out.
 
The weather's been so nice I've been able to leave the
potted plants outside this year.
 
But probably not for much longer.
 
 
 
And this cute little sweet pea is enjoying his first
fabulous fall.




I sure hope your fall has been as fun as ours!

"As we extend our hands and hearts toward others in Christlike love, something wonderful happens to us.  Our own spirits become healed, more refined and stronger.  We become happier, more peaceful, and more receptive to the whisperings of the Holy Spirit."

Peanuts and Crows


One of our little grandgirls grew a peanut plant this summer.
 
She picked it out at the garden center, brought it home and planted it in a pot, watered it all summer, and last week she pulled it up and look what she grew!
 
 
 
Peanuts!!
 
 
Not usually a desert crop!



I saw these cute crows on Pinterest and thought I should make
a couple.  The undecorated crows are from the dollar store.
 
Then I just made them hats and necklaces and crowns and signs.
 
So fun!
