October Visit to Montana



First thing we did was go to a Corn Maze!  We made it through just fine – although Sis was lost for a bit.

Next, we went to Edelweiss for lunch!!! YUMMM!!

Deep conversation by the mailbox. These two stood there for 15 minutes having a good gab!

Big Sky in Montana neighborhood walk.

We did manage one bake session! Apple Pie from their apple trees.

Gorgeous drive home with lots of fall trees!

Something I printed off of Instagram or Facebook that I want to memorize or at least print in big bold letters and tape on the fridge (Sorry to say I am unable to give credits):


Live beneath your means.

Return everything you borrow.

Stop blaming other people.

Admit it when you make a mistake.

Give clothes not worn to charity.

Do something nice and try not to get caught.

Listen more; talk less.

Every day take a 30 minute walk.

Strive for excellence, not perfection.

Be on time.  Don’t make excuses.

Don’t argue. Get organized.

Be kind to unkind people.

Let someone cut ahead of you in line.

Take time to be alone.

Cultivate good manners.

Be humble.

Realize and accept that life isn’t fair.

Know when to keep your mouth shut.

Go an entire day without criticizing anyone.

Learn from the past.  Plan for the future.  Live in the present.

Don’t sweat the small stuff.

It’s all small stuff.  (Bold and Italics added)

About cascadecountry

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 40+ years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, my two doggies. I am surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who bless my life, and I believe in the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us.
