HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!!!!
Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in this little cabin? I tell you, I would never grow tired of exploring those woods or sitting on that porch! My family would be hard pressed to get me to ever even go to the grocery store! Can't you just imagine the smells in the air? Fallen leaves all around? Oh, it would be heaven on Earth!
Guess I better stop dreaming and come back to reality! HeHe! Our weather has been fantastic this week! Much cooler temps...so much so that I had to pull out a light jacket for the morning hours. It won't be long before the leaves start changing and fires will be lit in the fire pit. Weiner roasts and playing outside after dark! The granddaughter loves doing that. We have to wait until it gets cooler or the mosquitoes will carry us off, so this time of year is our favorite.
My "Happy Window" is all dressed up for the season. I don't decorate like I once did but this window gets gussied up to pretty things up just a bit. I see my Mister left the mower out and that bird feeder needs some attention.
Just a simple wreath is all this door needs. I had bid plans to decorate the front porch but so far I haven't done a thing except spruce up the paint on the swing...and finally removed the dead plants. I'm not sure why those plants died but they sat there forever. I'm sure passersby thought we had moved or something. Ha!
I've been working on a few Christmas gifts for the grands. This is the beginning of the afghan for my granddaughter. I'm not totally sure I like it. Do you think it needs another color? Either way, she will love it.
We've been enjoying the granddaughter's soccer games. Last weekend, we went to her game and I stepped in a grass covered hole - actually it was a grass covered ditch -- and sprained my ankle. Yep, graceful old me. I will find the only hole in a 20 acre field...every. dang. time. Everybody else can walk the same path I do and it will be me that finds that hole - or ditch in this case. Only me!
After a few days of babying my ankle, I got out yesterday and picked up sticks for a project that I hope will keep my granddaughter busy, tomorrow. I didn't know if I was going to find enough because our new puppy, Jasper, loves chewing on sticks and has just about hauled them all off to his secret puppy place. He's such a funny dog.
He tends to get into trouble a lot. Especially when he chases my chickens! That's why he is looking so sad. He had to sit in "time out" aka "be put on the chain", because he was having a big time chasing the guineas. He's gotten better but he still has to go to time out a lot! LoL
Been spending a whole bunch of time with this handsome feller, too! He is now sitting and crawling. Doesn't seem as if he should be old enough for that. He has two teeth and has decided to try standing up. Slow down, little man!
Well, smells like my baked sweet potato is done. That's another reason I love fall! Baked sweet potatoes with lots of butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon! Yummmmmm!
Grace & Peace,
