Well, obviously it has been a little while since I have posted anything! Blogger has changed and this time I don't think we can go back to the "old" way of writing our blog posts. I guess I will get used to it, but at this moment...I'm a little lost!
I've taken a bit of a blogging break. I have no excuse, just life getting to me and taking away my creativity. I can't exactly say that I'm suddenly inspired, but I am trying. Over the next few days I hope to catch up with those of you who have been inspired to write.
Fall is almost here and our temperatures reflect it. Today I actually opened the windows and turned off the air for most of the day. I'm gradually adding a few fall things around the house. I grabbed a wreath from last year and stripped everything off of it (see above).
I really wanted a very full, thick wreath to hang over the stairway this year. I started layering every fall flower I had in my stash, along with a few leaves and twigs. My plan was to actually fill the center as well, but I ran out of flowers and I was determined to make this one out of only things I already had in the house. I'm using more burgandy and deep rust this year, with less orange.
Along with the cooler temperatures we have
been having some beautiful sky art.
We enjoyed the 19th annual Corvette Funfest here last weekend. It is always fun to stroll around the grounds and see the cars, enjoy the food and listen to the music. There are Corvettes all over town and parked at Mid America Motorworks (the host of the event) as far as the eye can see.
We also celebrated Zoe's first birthday! I bought her Paws dog ice cream (it isn't really ice cream) and a new toy. Within just a few minutes she had eaten the ice cream, thrown up and then chewed the toy to bits and we had to throw it away. So much for that celebration! She is calming down a bit in her old age. She still wants to chew on things, but she does drop them now when we look at her. She is absolutely spoiled rotten!
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
