Thank you very much Susan



I am not missing in action but between the rain and cooler weather we haven't been doing too much siteseeing lately. Remember I am a GRITS (girl raised in the south) and just not use to cooler weather. At home in Florida it is 95 today... Here yesterday it never made it to 60. Not that I don't love it because I do! We have been walking the park every day but I am bundled up and keeping as warm as I can. The leaves are starting to change and I am sure that since we have had some really cool nights it should really begin to be very colorful. Next week we are taking a ride up into the Boston Mountains in the Ozarks to see if the leaves are changing up there.

As for now we are back at Spring Hill COE park near Fort Smith, Arkansas. This time we set up Tassie in a site closer to a waterway off of the Arkansas River... This site is very nice but has only 30 AMP electric which we can get away with when we do not need the air conditioner... and Ralph can just stand on the bank to fish

The geese are flying south so we see a lot of them stopping by for a rest... It is funny hearing them go ove honking all the way...

And of course we are still staying close to our daughter Jennifer's house so we are enjoying lots of great quality family time... It is nice being able to see our granddaughters so much...
Here are Ralph and Hannah on a hike in the woods
Some more mushrooms. Did you here that eating mushrooms can help fight against Breast Cancer? Not a cure but another super food....
It is always good to hear about super foods isn't it?
However the twin grandson's back in Florida are missing us now...
and call me everyday to tell me so! Oh the life of a Memaw & Poppy...


Until Later
Hugs And Kisses

So good to hear from you! Looks like you are really having a great time. I love the pictures of the geese. And I really like your new header photo. I see that you are getting some fall color there, I bet it's going to be beautiful in the mountains. Have a great week! Kathy

How wonderful you're enjoying family time. I love your photos. They are memories in the making for the children. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Donna! Oh, there you are! I was missing you! Sorry it's raining on your good time. Now about those mushrooms - I'd be afraid because I wouldn't know which ones I could eat! :)
Be a sweetie,

shelia :)

Stacey said...

Hi Donna! I was wondering about you. It has been cool and wet here too - unseasonably cool for sure. I'd actually like it to warm up a little.

Hope you are having a wonderful time. The colorful trees are very pretty.

Justine said...

When family is scattered here and there, you just can't make them all happy at the same time!

You are SO lucky to be experiencing such cool temps. I cannot wait. Would you believe it's supposed to be in the 70s this weekend? Woooooo hoooooooooooo!

Justine :o )

Joe and Sherri said...

Wow Sherri and I will have to try out that park. I guess it is easy to maneuver around in. We love the COE parks bu so many are tight and hard to drive through and park in.

cindy said...

Hi Donna, really like your new "fall" header!...What kind of fish does Ralph catch in the river?..Great tip about the mushrooms...do you know exactly which type are good for you? Stay warm...we havent seen the sun here in a while either. ~Cindy

Hi Donna:
Glad to see you are still enjoying life on the road. The parks you stay in are sure nice.
I like your fall banner.

Calming Scents said...

ohhh I feel like you, I dont want the warm weather to leave. I'm really quite sad. Tomorrow we pick up our little RV and I have all kinds of pretties to decorate it with--while baldyman drives us home I'll be making the bed and hanging stuff lol

Happytrails said...

Donna, your fall header is great. Your pictures are so good. I'm tired of this rain too. I love watching and listening to the geese flying in their "V" formation. I know you're going to see some beautiful fall colors. Stay warm, and y'all be careful. Hugs, laurie

Diana said...

Glad you're back! This blogging is quite a responsibility :-)

Enjoy your time with family, and then head on back to the warm!

PEA said...

Hello dear Donna:-)

Finally finding time to visit and catch up on all your news. It hasn't gone above 37F here in the past week or so but at least the sun has been shining the last couple of days. Before that it was rain, rain, rain...and a bit of snow!!

I'm so glad you're still near your daughter and able to see them often:-) I do hope the sun comes out for you so that you can enjoy the beautiful Autumn colours. Our trees were at their peak last week but now the trees are getting pretty bare. With the heavy frost we get in the mornings, the leaves have been falling like crazy.

Take care my friend and have a wonderful weekend. xoxo

Hi Donna, If you have no rain, you can roast marshmallows over a fire pit.It would be fun to sit around a fire and talk away the night!!!I like to smell a wood burning fire..I have a gas fireplace in my house and it is not the same...

Continue to enjoy your family and road trip!!It is cooler here today with temps in the lower 60's and going down into the 40's tonight.. I love it...

Talk to you later my friend..
Hugs, Baba
