The sky is very blue with white streaks of clouds today. And, recently a military plane flew over the top of the pine trees while their branches were swinging gently in the wind. The plane sounded like one that has 4 engines. Not positive because I am still developing my airplane ears. But, my guess would probably be a C 17?
The temperatures are in the low 80s and high 70s. It is fall here but the trees are not turning colors. And, the homes in our area haven’t yet brought out the fall décor. Regardless, I am anticipating the smells of pumpkin and cinnamon apple candles.
And, he always teases me that he wants me to smell his feet. I always say, "No way! The older the feet the stinker they smell." I don't know that the statement is true but it sounds about right!
As I look at some of my favorite blogs, I noticed that I gravitate toward the blogs that show homemaking pictures almost every day. Such simple beauty! I adore the thought of all those little home making touches. I admit those seasonal decorating post gets me every time! Oh, to be able to blog about lots of seasonal decor. And the pictures! Eye Candy, I tell ya. So what do I like? Well,
I marval at their luscious fruit bowls pictures.
(....because you can often find an apple at my house with a bite taken out of it!)
Georgeous kitchen flowers on the table.
(....because it is a risk in this house when I do have them around. Dakota the cat, likes to eat the leaves and I am always concerned that he will knocked over the vase.)
Sewing projects almost weekly.
(...because I am not in the position of sewing for myself. Everything I do has to be within the time frame of passing on the skills to my children.)
Pretty Painted Ornaments.
(...because when the paint comes out here, I have to monitor it and resupply the 3 feet tall artists in the house.)
Yes, oh, to have a blog with eye-candy photos! Oh, I am silly, I know! It doesn't take long for me to talk myself back into reality after I look around at my house. I don't have the storage for all that seasonal stuff. Although, I have a little bit of seasonal decor. I also like to keep my house simply decorated -- less clutter to dust! And, then I think to myself, "I bet it cost a lot of money!"
Here in my little blog world, you have to look at the pictures more closely to find the beauty.
It is often hidden! For example, I saw a picture recently of a living room floor covered with legos. The caption read, "Home Security System!" It made me laugh. Yep! The blessing? Little Lego hands with hours of building and not having the expence on a security alarm!
