Summer Ain't Over Til Its Over....




Our climate has been flippity ~ flopping of late....one day its a scorcher and the next day it's stew making, afghan stitching, fire building, sock wearing weather....and today was no exception. So summer isn't done doing what summer does...but fall is definitely knocking on the old gal's door....and not a moment too soon for me.

I really am looking forward to fall. I plan to give my sadly neglected ETSY shop a big ~o~ gigantic creative hug of love and as for our home...I will purge and organize and sort and shred and prioritize and dust and shine and paint and polish my ol' fingers to the bone....and all the while being grateful for all we have.

Fall cleaning is the new spring cleaning....I always clean and organize in the fall and then tuck the whole house in for the long winter's nap.....nesting...thy name is delightful!


Nope, summer ain't done...no way, no how...



I'm dressed for more gardening and then some...



Fertilize it and it will grow...


Yankee candle love.....ahhhh yes, love.

Your flowers are so pretty - I am getting so in the mood for fall. I like to tuck everything away and nestle in, too. :)

I'm ready for fall, too. It's the BEST season!

Your garden is gorgeous! I tend to lose interest in gardening halfway through summer...and it shows...which is sad because I love a beautiful garden, but I guess for now there is just too much on the plate...

Have fun in your etsy shop, I love etsy :)

I'm the same way, Ramona--I start cleaning out drawers and closets like crazy in the Fall. I feel like nesting and getting the house ready for the change of seasons.

Your flowers are beautiful! -Julia :-)
