J.T. I love Autumn weather, apples, pumpkins, and changing foliage. I love doing my Fall projects - cleaning up the flower beds, moving plants around so they'll look "perfect" the next year, and washing all the pots so they'll be ready in February to start the new seedlings!
What I don't like is seeing the final flower of the season, putting the tools away for the last time, raking leaves, and feeling that biting nip that tells you winter will be along before you know it. But, as King Solomon said, "To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven".
Now, what have I got to show you today? I picked up a new bird figurine at the thrift shop last week. It's the double one in the middle. For those who hadn't read the last post I did on these, the pretty stained-glass cabinet is over the dresser in my walk-in closet.
You've all heard me rave recently about the James Patterson Alex Cross series. Would you believe I read 16 books in just over a month? They're that good! I have one more to read, and the new one comes out in February. Well, Fran of Hey, Mom! What's for Dinner? contacted me and said she had some Patterson books she was getting rid of and would I like them. Duh, yeah I would! So she sent them along with a surprise in the box - a cute little cherries bowl! And, come to find out, Fran lives very close to me, too! Thanks again, Fran!
