a bit like Christmas ...

I found this when I was going through an unopened box - I hadn't remembered making it - now I don't have to make one.  Going through boxes that have been packed for a year and a half is a bit like Christmas.

Here's something else that's a bit like Christmas - my Christmas Cactus is blooming already ......

There'll be snow for Halloween with the promise of more on the way - it's early this year.

every end is a new beginning

on speed ......

These last six months have sped by and I'm reminded of that old saying ...  'life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes'.  At my age I'd like it to slow down. 

I found a spot to hang this tree in our new place to display some autumn pieces.  Wouldn't you know it - I located the jute twine after stringing the tree with crochet cotton and taking a photo - the cotton looks tacky - it is what it is.

late bloomer .....

 It's Friday the 13th - I consider it a lucky day - I was born on a Friday the 13th.  

Last weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada - I have much to be thankful for - we celebrated at the cabin - then we closed up the cabin for the winter.   The weather was quite mild - so mild that we hated to close up - I appreciated the warm weather when it was time to take the waterline out of the water.

This little gal was blooming from amongst the leaves piled on her garden - the sweet peas and cosmos are still blooming as well - there's been no frost yet.

At our new home in town I've just planted some tulips, winter onions, garlic and lilies - the weather is still mild although they're threatening us with snowflurries tomorrow.

This cute pumpkin is a design from here.

tomorrow is not promised
and today is short
