My last published blog post was October 17.
Wow, I am really lazy.
No reason, no excuses. I guess I've just been sort of floating along,
watching the last bits of summer fade away, and adjusting to Fall.
Do you know in exactly 3 weeks it will be Thanksgiving?
You do? Nevermind . . . .
On our front porch, the hanging ferns are hanging in there. Barely.
But they do look cold, don't they?
The asparagus ferns on either side of the front door are still growing.
They're bucking to come indoors for the winter.
The hanging geranium is a bit beat up from our couple of freezing nights,
but I think with a good hair cut and some TLC,
she might ride out the winter in the sunroom.
Today's wet winds brought down more leaves in the side yard.
I finally got around to Autumn-izing the front door wreath.
Gone are the white summer flowers (almost); it's Hello, Fall.
I just poke fake flowers from Michael's in
the big twig wreath. That way, I can use it for all seasons.
Lazy, and cheap. Or, thrifty. Yeah, thrifty.
So did I tell you that it will be Thanksgiving in 3 short weeks?
I did? Nevermind . . . .
Soon I'll be pulling out the Thanksgiving china, and giving the
old silverplate flatware a quick shine.
The turkey salt-and-peppers will be freed
from their china closet prison and put into service.
Ah, Thanksgiving. Bring it on!
Each year, I make up a "To Be Done By Thanksgiving" List,
known as my TBDBT List.
I never complete everything on it; this year's list is several pages long.
Do you have one? What's on it, and will you get it all done?
Did you hear? It's just 3 weeks until Thanksgiving!
You already knew that? Oh. Nevermind . . . .
I took these pictures late this afternoon, and I meant to go to the
back of the house and get shots of our roses, still happily blooming away.
Don't they know it's Fall?
But my camera battery pooped out.
So, no roses - but plenty of dead oak and maple leaves.
Mother Nature sure knows how to snazz up a place.
Here's to Fall, and family gatherings! -- Cass
