Peaceful Sunday Eve

Care to join me for a Sunday evening chat with a delightful cup of hot tea?  It's the perfect evening for it.  I recently bought a "Night Time Tea Herbal Blend" tea and discovered it is my new favorite!  It's very smooth, mildly spicy and softly cozy.  Perfect treat as you snuggle down for a quiet moment before bed.

Loving Fall, as it has come in it's fullness this last week or so here in Columbia, South Carolina.  It's Fall when you use the blower instead of the mower to do yard work!   I blew off my yard on Friday and it looked like it was in need of another blowing this afternoon.  Instead I gathered up some pine cones and kindling to light up a fire in my fire pit.  A friend stopped by and he graciously offered to finish the process.  We soon had some flames licking up the needles and my flip-flop baring feet enjoyed the toasty heat from a few inches away from the fire pit.  Lovely.

So I smell like smoke now, as I drink my Night Time Tea.  Can you smell…

Quiet Saturday & An Update

It's been a beautiful October Saturday.  I sure needed a Saturday.  A friend asked what my average week was like, and I had to admit an "average" week is non-existant at this point.  My new normal is still working itself out.  I am so grateful for work, and enjoy the variety of my days immensely, yet I would not mind a little more stability.  How thankful I am that God is unchanging!  He is my Rock, a sweet refuge to which I continually go.  
Today I stayed home most all day and enjoyed a quiet Saturday.  This week I read an article that reminded me that the Scriptures tell us to live quiet lives, by Donald Miller.  Do a word search on "quiet" and it may surprise you. 
So today I embraced the quietness of having the day to myself.  After walking the dogs, and spending time in the Word, I started in on my Saturday housekeeping needs.  It was so nice outside, I opened every window I could: some of the windows in my house are glued shut.   As I was going room to r…

New Home Needed

Last week I took Sasha out for an afternoon stroll.  I saw some kids meandering up the street which I recognized as some neighbor kids and greeted them.  I noticed they had a very young puppy on a leash.  

After commenting on the pup, one of the kids shyly said,

"Uh, Miss Tammie, would you keep this puppy in your back yard?"

To which I cautiously responded, "For how long?"

No clear answer.

Since I am a softie, or maybe a sucker, I said "okay."

A week and a half later, look who is starting to feel like my backyard is his home:

Let's just say upon further investigation, this little guy was "found" and the boys whom had it on the end of a leash were really not allowed to keep it at their house.

Guess who hasn't shown back up to take care of little pup?

Guess who has started to get attached to sweet, darling Rottweiller puppy?

Guess who has bought puppy food, and a toy so it would not chew up other chewable items in backyard?

Guess who i…
