Well, when all was said and done, some people in our area had over 10 inches of rain...we had about 8 here, so enough already...lol! Last night it got down to 35 degrees so we had to make a mad rush to get our houseplants in. For now, they are in the garage, we'll try and get them to their winter spots in the house later today sometime. I guess those wooly worms were right, we're going to have an early and cold winter, I've seen about four of them this year and they are ALL solid black, first time I've ever seen that, they usually have a stripe and you can forecast the winter by how WIDE or NARROW the brown strip is..well this year, there is NO stripe at all...and their fuzz is really long...look at this
So now, I have to check the persimmon pits to see if there's a fork , knife or spoon inside it and our winter forecast will be complete! I love doing this stuff every year, it's a tradition and just plain fun! Today though, was a perfect sunny and crisp October day, just the kind that autumn is known for..clean air from all the rain and just a great day!
The craft studio is moving right along, Jim and I got all figured out today what is going to go where, and that was HALF the battle I think..we're still working on staining woodwork and bolting bookshelves to the walls..the actual moving of all the craft goodies is really going to be a job...lol! But I'm really excited and I will post pictures of my craft studio as soon as I get it in some semblance of order. I am really also looking forward to this project being done, I have SO many great crafting ideas in my head that I want to get started. My good friend Karma is having her Stampin' Up workshop in a couple weeks, so I am getting ideas for that as well. She has a beautiful new house that will be such a fun place to have the workshop, she is diligently working on finishing moving in and getting it all decorated with the prettiest things~!
Speaking of decorating, I made a cute decoration today, picked up a pumpkin shaped basket the other day and put it together with a some autumn goodies, have it on my wooden trunk in the living room...I thought it came out pretty cute, I also was burning my new Yankee candle tonight with the beautiful autumn glass shade that my good friend Gwen got me for my birthday! Here's a pic of both of those things...
Well, that's about it for today...hope you all have a wonderful weekend...God bless,Linda
