The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Yay! The wood is stacked.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day yesterday -- 70 degrees and sunny. We're having a blessedly mild fall, for which I am truly grateful. I know winter will be here soon, but this lengthening of the nice weather will (hopefully) make the snow a little easier to take.

The trees outside are gorgeous -- DH hates pine trees, and so took all the ones in our backyard down when we first moved in. As a result, all we have is vibrant color. I meant to take some pictures yesterday, but completely forgot. Will do so today.

I also finally started setting up my office. I don't really have a desk -- just a particle board table thingie, but it works. The first thing I did was hang up the quilt Dru sent me some time ago. :-)

Once it's a little tidier in there, I'll take pix. DD's schoolroom is back where it used to be, instead of in the same room. I tried working with her, but she talks non-stop -- not necessarily to me, frequently to herself, but it's still chatter, lol.

And, because I wasn't busy enough, I decided to start a blog to talk about all the outdoors stuff I enjoy: gardening, bugs, weather, bird, etc. If you're so inclined, feel free to visit: It's Only Natural.

Nothing like a little pressure -- LASR doesn't have a story for this week. We have one for next week and the week after, etc. Just not THIS week. So, I need to write one... unless any of y'all have a 1000 word (or so, we're flexible within reason) romance lying around somewhere? Please? *G*


You Are a Monkey

You are a very fascinating creature. People are interested in every little thing you do.

You are smart, curious, and clever. You are naturally witty, and you have a great sense of humor.

You can see things from many different angles, and you always have an interesting perspective on life.

You are likely agile and playful. You stay physically fit simply by staying active.

You know... I've been told that before, lol.

Love the quilt Dru made - isn't she talented?

Dru said...

Wow, I forgot that I made that particular quite. I really like the color combination. I can't wait to see a picture of it hanging in your office.

You Are a Cat

You are very independent and reclusive.

No one really understands you, and you like it that way!

You are quite clever and ingenious. You can get yourself out of any sticky situation.

You are confident and cool tempered. You know you have many advantages and resources to draw from.

No matter what life throws at you, things always seem to work out your way.

this sounds a bit like me.

Dru has such a lovely way with making quilts.
Does this mean you aren't going to talk about the weather and such on this blog anymore? *g*

I hope you have a pleasant Sunday!

*sigh* I'm a chicken.

We painted today. Finished the living room, except for the trim and most of the dining room. I love quilts. My aunt made the most wonderful quilts in her day. Wish I had one to hang on my wall.

I'm a cow. Um, seriously? Did I have to be a cow?!?! Sigh.
