Spit shine time.

 It's that wonderful time of year again!
Heritage Days.
Click on the link to see what all the whole town is buzzing about.
 The city is mowing along the roads.
 Flowers are getting planted.
Yards are getting trimmed and windows are getting polished.
We will be busy, busy, busy for the next week or so.
Waking up before the sun.
Working and loving every single minute of it.
Putting the spit shine on our little town.

Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so grateful to live in such an amazing and beautiful town.
~I'm so grateful for wonderful friends that bring me beautiful plants and delicious treats and visits filled with laughter and "remember when's''.


  1. Great pic of the sun rise. Sounds like the whole town is busy getting ready! Have a great Memorial weekend

  2. You truly are BLESSED! It looks like it will be a beautiful time! :)

  3. What a fun time! I love small, historic towns. Especially when they preserve and celebrate the history of it all. You'll have to share some pictures.

  4. I looked at the Spring City link for Heritage Days and how exciting! If I lived closer I would be there in a heart beat with bells on! How fun is that? I didn't know you lived in an historic area and look at all the talented artists you have there too. Take lots of pictures if you have time and share it with us. We have Dogwood Days here and I never's the saddest excuse for a festival I've ever seen. I went down one time about 2:00 in the afternoon and there was no one left! LOL! Yours sounds amazing and to think you live right in the middle of it! Woo Hoo! Happy Heritage Days to you!

  5. The work will all be worth it! I would love to visit your town!

  6. Wonderful pictures! I might try to paint that geranium.

  7. Kerin: Oh, the beauty of living in a small town..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  11. Small town celebrations are so fun. We have one in my little town over Labor Day weekend.

  12. Exciting!! I do so love towns that spit shine and celebrate!! I look forward to seeing some photos! Enjoy! blessings ~ Tanna

  13. Hi Kerin, I have been looking over your posts that I have missed while being the bread, the bottles stuck into the ground, the country funeral...I love that you are so in love with the place there! Us too, even if it is still just part time, our home in Bicknell is still for sale, but when it does sell then we will be in St. G full time and serving in the temple for sure! Have a great M weekend! :)

  14. Sounds like a fun time. :)


  15. Hi Kerin!! It is me again! Just wanted to tell you that I just awarded you with The Liebster Award on my blog!! Congratulations and hope you accept it!! xo Heather

  16. Good afternoon, Kerin~

    Every year in October, we have our Heritage Festival and I just LOVE IT! It is such a wonderful time for our community to get together!

    I hope you have a WONDERFUL time! :D


  17. Love your title! :) The color of your flowers are so pretty.

  18. A very joyful post, Kerin. This is a lovely time of year. We are thankful for good neighbors and blog friends, too. Have a great weekend.

  19. LOVE your tractor! We finally bought a new tractor this year since the old one was a total antique and almost impossible to drive not to mention not doing the job right once you got it to move!

    We got a good deal from a place that was going out of business so we got a different brand and it sure gets the jobs done!

    1. Hi Carol..
      That's not our tractor..but one the city hired out to clear the sides of the road.
      I WISH I had a tractor!!
      If I ever get one..(big IF) I'd love an old red Farmall :)

  20. This type of work is so rewarding, Kerin. The kind that makes your heart smile.
    Off to visit your link.
    Thank you for stopping by. Glad you liked the Audrey post.
    Much love,

  21. wow, sounds like a fun time!

  22. That is wonderful, Kerin! Little towns are the best...
    Hope you take lots of pictures!
