geraniums and kittens and my CNB

Autumn is really here. The huge oak in the back yard began changing leaf color this week. Some autumns it’s a bright beautiful yellow and this looks to be one of those years. The first few leaves are beautiful buttery gold.

The geraniums on the back steps have finally come into their own. So pretty! But they’ll be coming inside soon. It won’t be long till we have a killing frost, I’m sure. I didn’t even clean up for this shot. As is…leaf and dirt debris, old flowerpots, and all.

We were heading to our friends’ home for supper when I took the above shot. And when we got there, DD was delighted to find kittens!


We had a great time at supper. Lots of laughs which is always good. Great food! I want that avocado salad recipe, Laurie! A good evening all the way around.

Today I’ve been going over my Christmas Notebook plans for the holidays. I have several projects I want to accomplish before the open house and need to get them organized so I can get started. I set out my Christmas Notebook and my Room Pages binder and began making lists. To buy. To do. To make. More ideas kept popping into my head. So I added those to the idea pages in the Room Pages binder and am trying to concentrate on the plans I already have!

Christmas Notebook

The wreath in the Room Pages binder is an idea I’m contemplating for the guest room door. I think I’ll get a wreath of blueish eucalyptus, spritz it with some white and silver, and put the ring of white twigs over it, then add clusters of multiple sized pearl beads. Whatcha think? Don’t you love Christmas??
