ATC's From DJ

I really do not know where to start. I am well, but guarded. Doing everything I can to stay well. Colon inflammation is not easy to get rid of. I have missed everyone and at times have looked at your blogs. You are all so creative!!! To add to this time, I have been dealing with depression. Okay, I am a wreck! DJ and I did a ATC share that Janet and Lee put on this summer, and I got mine from DJ a couple of days ago. It is so exciting to get a package in the mail. I think she made two really fun ATC's, one is summer, the other is fashion, and the Box is a little treasure. Thank You so much DJ, this was fun.

I have been doing crafts from my sofa, some for Bazaar, some for our Christmas party. And the harvest from the garden has been so good. I made salsa, and roasted tomatoes for freezing...they will be so good when the cold winter comes.
We have had a very warm fall so has been in the 90's, but like most places this will soon turn to much cooler temps. The leaves have not started turning yet, but it will happen fast when the cold comes. I cut Savory from my herb garden this morning. All my herbs are now cut and will go to sleep for the winter.
Arney has been working on the barn, it has been leaking for sometime, so a new rough had to be done. He will probably finish this next week.
I really want to be here daily, I will try. Big Hugs, Mary

Hi Mary,
Sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. I have missed you. I hope things turn around for you soon, especially with the winter fast approaching, and all the holidays just around the corner. Blessings to you, and I'll be praying for you.

Mary, we sure like the same kind of music. Yours always makes me smile.

I am sorry you have been ill. I sure wish and hope the healing can happen now and you will be all well soon, both physically and mentally. I am imagining the depression is a result of being ill?

Your cards/gift received are wonderful and so happy you were gifted so.

I hope you will blog more often and stay in touch.

Sending hugs and love,

So good to hear from you. Sorry your health has been such an uphill
battle. Have you ever heard that,
"the battle field is in the mind"
It is true, that is why depression is such a strong weapon, the enemy of your soul wants to steal your joy! God's word says "the JOY of the Lord is our STRENGTH. I will pray the BLESSINGS OF THE LORD OVERTAKE YOU and depression will flee.

Isaiah 40:31 always helps me in tough times, Mary.

Glad you like the ATCs; I thought they fit into the box nicely for storage of your collection or for other small items.
Sorry it took me so long to get them to you; life gets to me, too, but I was determined to deliver, late or not.

Thanks for my treasures you sent! You're one talented lady!
Hugs ~

Yay Mary is back!
I hope you continue to feel better I bet you have had a rough go of it! Keep check on that depression, have your vit D levels re-checked and stay up on that.
Glad to hear you are crafting from the couch - that is wonderful that you still want to create!
Hugs and prayers, Cat
