This wreath is outside the kitchen door - which is where most guests enter our home.
These mums and pumpkin on are the kitchen door step. Behind the mum is where I used to have a lilac bush. It didn't flower well, and it was terribly over grown. I removed it for those reasons and the fact that when my parents add on to our home, this space will be in their laundry room/pantry.
The weather has been delightful. Warm days, cool nights. Perfect.
It's fair season here in our county and our favorite local one started today. We hope to get over to walk around and maybe watch some equine events on Friday. This year the girls decided not to compete.
We have a local farm that sells their pumpkins for the best prices around. Most are $1 or $2, while the more unusual ones are a bit more money. Ours were all $1 pumpkins.
I have been spending quite a bit of time outside - I always do in the Autumn. Saturday after we got home from our trip I cut back the dead summer flowers, and the kids helped me pull some weeds. It truly looked like the Adams Family garden! I finished by sweeping the walkway and steps. The next day the walkway was covered in dirt! The source of that mess being our lovely hens who love to scratch around in the garden!
This photo was taken today - smaller mess but with evidence of their walkingI got my hair cut! It really needed it! It is a bit shorter than I have been wearing it, and the layers are a bit shorter - I like it. It works well with my natural curl, and my cowlicks, and baby fine hair, that has a mind of its own.
In the weeks to come I hope to do some posts on embracing each season of life your in. I'd love it if you'd tell me in the comments what season of life you're in and what you like or dislike about it.
