It was such a beautiful Autumn day here. I wish we could have this weather year round. The temperature is so comfortable and the sun is bright without being scorching or blinding. I took this picture ------>
from the dining room looking out onto the screened porch on the main level. The screened porch is the cats' favorite hangout. Lily the old lady dog sometimes goes out there to do her business when she can't get our attention quickly enough for her to go to the poop pen out front.
With the windows open and fresh breezes blowing through the house we have added cedar shavings to the poop pen to improve the aroma coming from the front windows. The cedar really smells good. And of course, since we live in "Cedar Hollow" it seems appropriate.
Mom and I made a mega-Walmart run this morning. I was not really up for it - pain wise - but I also felt like it wasn't going to get any easier as the week went on so I just bit the bullet and went. We split up - she made her way around the store starting with housewares and I made my way around the store starting in the produce department and we met in the middle at the paper plates. I got there first but she had some trouble getting assistance in finding the items she was shopping for.
I just wanted something that was unique and feminine and... heck... we had the paint already... so why not? I think it will look better when the furniture is in there and you're not just staring at a big purple wall.
A few more pictures from today...
happy vacuuming boy!
looking down the hallway to my deep purple room...
the lower part of our yard...
the upper part of our yard... bright sunshine, just the beginning of fall colors
I've fought past pain two days in a row this week to do what I had to do. I have a doctors appointment on Friday. I hope I wake up feeling ten foot tall and bullet proof tomorrow so I can get everything set up downstairs. I rest best when my environment is neat and clean and has everything in it's place. I would LOVE to be able to get everything done tomorrow. We'll see. And if not... I'll just go outside and enjoy the view!
Happy Tuesday, y'all! Love and hugs!
