I’m not one to love summer…I like it okay but I don’t love it like some of you.
The heat gets to me even if it’s not HOT…I’m not sure why….age maybe…LOL
This past summer has been a good one but also a full one.
I’m hoping Fall is a little slower in pace.
I want to enjoy the cool evenings and the warm to coolish days….just perfect temperatures…sweater or no sweater…ahhhh perfect!
This is the season I enjoy the screen room the most.
LAST OF VACATION:
I’m sure you had your fill of vacation pictures so I will show you only the last stop.
I had a post all done but for some reason my Windows Live Writer kept freezing up my computer and I could not even do a hard shut down – I had to unplug and also remove the battery. So you have been saved by technology!!
Joe never seemed to look like he was enjoying it much (although he did – he just didn’t like having his picture taken) so here is Joe at his happiest.
When Doug was checking into the hotel the kids hopped out of the car – I thought they were getting all their luggage and I tried to stop them telling them we would park first – well they came back in the car with their suits in hand and their goggles on…lol
(click pictures to make them bigger)
Yesterday I cleaned the craft/office room so I can move the chair from the other guest bedroom in there and hopefully move some of my crafting things to the basement.
I want to put a bed in there for extra company…
want to come stay????
I had a pair of Tobacco Cloth panels for this room that never got up and so I finally put them up – I love the look so now the whole house has them. What I love about these types of curtains/panels is they keep out the hot sun but let in light, kind of dual purpose and they look so nice too.
I’m looking for an old iron bed for this room and I’m not particular if it’s a twin or full size just so it has the old iron bed look.
If it ever gets how I see it in my head I will post pictures.
I need to apologize to ALL OF YOU because you have been the best bloggers always coming to my blog and commenting – I have not been as loyal. By the time I get my e-mails answered and the bookwork done and read a few blogs on my list I run out of computer time, I just can’t continue to blog hop. I promise I will do better starting this week….already this morning I read 5!
BACK TO THE FALL THING AGAIN:
I am excited to get the bins out and see what to put out first.
I have the new Pumpkins from a couple months ago to add to the already growing stash – I like the muted colors.
And I have a new ‘fun’ one (it will have a goofy looking face) coming from Marie http://primitivesbyoldeladymorgan.blogspot.com/
I need to finish up a Penny Rug in exchange for the pumpkin by the 20th as we are meeting her and her husband for a Folk Art show at Kane County.
I also bought a HUGE Orange Mum plant at Sam’s Club on Friday (looks Gold in the top picture) – I try and buy one or two from there I love buying them there because the price is always good.
This plant will be going in my large crock on the porch just as soon as I get the Summer things put away.
Remember the Bittersweet plant we put in the back garden? Well, I went out and bought another one and put it in the other garden – within about 2-3 years it should have enough vines on it to get some good cuttings.
Thursday is rummage sale day in our town so now and then we try and go and this time I got lucky.
This is a Food Network baking dish and was $5.00.
I like these types of bakers because they bake even and with the lid keep the food warm for a very long time.
Sunday I made a pot roast and I always make a stew from the leftovers – it was the perfect Fall dinner.
Well this has not been an exciting post but I so wanted to say I’m sorry I have not visited you in ages and will do better I promise.
Our little Aidan started Kindergarten today.
He called this morning just before they left. Where did these last 5 years go – I know Darren and MaryAnn will have tears in their eyes when he gets dropped off. He said he will call when he gets home and tell us about his day.
JUST A REMINDER ABOUT THE
’HARVEST AT THE MILL SHOW’
this coming Saturday.
I have all the information at the top of my blog just under the header.
Blessings and Happy September to you all!
I’m one happy gal with this cool weather!!
