Welcome, Autumn...

Isn't this pumpkin cute?  Emily and I did them a few years ago.  We just used a cookie cutter to make the indentation on the pumpkins and then used knives to cut out the stars...

Today it is pouring rain.  I had to go out for my big grocery run, had an issue with needing to add power steering fluid while holding an umbrella so as to avoid the drowned rat look since I still needed to go to Costco.  I tried to get online last night and this morning but we were having internet issues, so this is my first chance to get online.  Let me just be real and say that this was a hard day, but in the grand scheme of things not anything really difficult.  Just annoyances.

It has been looking Autumnish for the last several weeks.  The light is different at this time of year, a few leaves are turning, several plants in the garden have leaves that change....

We are taking a trip to New England again this year and I can hardly wait!  I need to book one more hotel stay for our last night...

Tomorrow, I want to do a list of things I love about Autumn!


  1. That's such a great idea! Lots of possibilities with that one.

    Are those leaves actually in your yard? We do not have one red leaf in ours unless one counts the azalea bush. Wow. What's wrong with this picture?

  2. Ohhh...I have some different sized cookie cutters that are shaped like fall leaves. Thank you! Ill have to give this a try :)

  3. How special to be able to get to New England in this season! I look forward to reading your "list".

    Poison Ivy has been a major annoyance to me the past 9 or 10 days! It can get a person down! (Just sayin' I can relate to your being a little down...)

  4. I look forward to reading your list! Autumn is my favorite time of year!
    (Thanks for your sweet comments about baby Isabel. Babies are wonderful. :-)


Welcome to Creekside Cottage - a place of Hospitality, Friendship and Encouragement!


  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
