And this reminder we aren't in the East anymore!
We have had a few cool days and the trees are trying to brighten up the landscape with color
and it's beginning to look a lot like Halloween!
Why I could have spent a fortune and likely will next year. It was like, walking into Oz with all the colorful possibilities to make!
creativity! I got some stencils and stamps to use on fabric,
I love the little sugar cantaloupes we found at Sams this week! Yummmmmmmy with a bit of whipped cream for dessert
We also love these two new to us snacks from Sams
The little box of natural delights was made from dates pecans and well, delight.
Our trip to the garden center, (post and lots of silly pictures HERE) was planned for these. I've been enjoying BLT's made with turkey bacon and it's sad when I look at the last bite! So good.
The furniture repair guy came this week to fix two sewing cabinets the movers broke... I liked his calm confident demeanor...
I'll tell you, I'm sick to death of hearing people brag about being the "best" so it's a pure pleasure to meet a quiet artisan, with lots of experience at his craft, just quietly say "I've repaired a lot of these, and they came out good"
and the fall entry of our house
And the sun is setting earlier these days, so I like coming back from a walk and seeing our entryway
Thanks for looking...
I talked a lot yesterday about my trip to the garden center where I saw so much cool stuff to sniff and played with lots of kids. I've been pretty excited with cooler weather myself.
It's hard to be a good poodle ALL the time.
It was hard I'll admit to walk around in a black fur coat when the sun was so hot my Mama nearly perished from the vapors! But now it's cooler and I'm ready to kick up my dog heels and run!
Why I had quite a scare this week. I saw a flat baby and y'all it weren't natur'l. I barked and barked at it til I watched Mama walk over and touch it. Then I went over and had a real good sniff... well, it wan not like the usual babies. (editors note: it was a sign in a front yard that someone had a baby, "it's a boy!" with a picture of a staring baby) (Milo is big on faces, and doesn't like anything odd like a helmet, or a kid with a pool toy around them, or people holding hands...)
Yep! I also saw a weird two headed creature last night I had to bark at and warn to stay away which was hard because Mama barked back at me and said stop it but I was just protecting us from danger anyway!!!
(editors note: an older couple was walking hand in hand past us)
Please check out these fine folk also keeping it positive this week, and for those of us who are also "me too" it was a very difficult week to survive. (read my post HERE)
I ordered a book before it was on the stands this week, by my fave author on writing, Anne Lamott.
Her new book is on having hope. I have learned so much from her about writing, and need hope, so I'll give you a review when I get it!
