Long time comin’

Yup. It’s been a long time since my last post. Again. I’ve still been doing a lot of nothing…..August left in a huge hurry, September was a blur, and last night was Halloween. How did this happen? Just last week it was July!

Managed to make a few pillows for the front porch before all the leaves disappeared from the trees – they only seemed to be full of splendid colour for a week, then faded and fell – all of them in my yard.

Took us three days to gather up the leaves from the front and back yards, then a big wind came and blew all the neighbour’s leaves back in. Looking forward to doing it all over again……sure we are!

The front porch looks nifty though. The Japanese maples are turning brilliant red, and cheering up the rest of the yard. New pillows for our comfy chairs….

We journeyed to the niece’s house to celebrate our Canadian Thanksgiving in October – a yearly treat not to be missed. Usually it is held at the cottage, but the kitchen there is just too small to create the size dinner needed. We had a great time, ate tons of food, and yakked way into the evening – my favourite kind of visiting!

The last few days have been spent building the treat boxes I give the greats for Halloween – we have one visiting from Australia this year so I get to make her one as well (for the first time, I believe). I love doing this, but it is time consuming. One look at the state of my unwashed kitchen floor should make that abundantly clear – hey, I have to prioritize!

Wee VV decorated treats for us, and brought them over on a soggy, overcast October afternoon – cheered us up no end, and they were delicious! Many thanks to her Auntie Jenn for helping her spread some Halloween cheer!
