Senior Moments & Getting Ready For Autumn

Not Growing Old....Gracefully
Well I guess I'm getting
old and having senior moments
more often than I realized. 
Did you catch the title of my last post?
"October Blooms"
The post was on Sept 22.
LOL At Myself!
You were all too sweet and polite
to correct me :) 

Even though I'm not fond of 
winter's freezing temperatures, 
I do enjoy living in an area where there 
is definitely a change in the seasons :)

I've been clearing my closet of 
short sleeve tees and peddle pushers
and filling it with sweaters
and long pants.

Look at this #zulilyfind! 'Life Is Better in Flip Flops' Wood Wall Sign #zulilyfinds

Do your feet get callused more 
in the summer?
Especially your heels?
In the spring I am so ready for 
flip flops and sandals, 
but by fall I am ready for 
warm socks, shoes and boots. 

Hi Knitters,  I finished my first pair of Patchwork Socks a couple of days ago. Make no bones about it, they are pretty darn fun and cute...

I could almost feel my feet saying,
 "thanks you"
as I slipped on my woolly socks. 
(all photos on this post are from Pinterest)
 Don't you just love these socks?


Thank you all for being so kind
not drawing attention to my
Senior Moment :)


 Keep Smiling!

October Blooms

All work and no play
makes Connie a dull girl, LOL.

I've been clearing the garden
and taking it to the dump.
I have way too much plant life
for my compost bin.

So instead of showing you photos
of the old pick-up loaded
for the dump . . .

I thought that I would show 
you some of our October blooms.  

This bouquet is a mix 
of pink roses, zinnia and 
autumn joy. 

Hopefully, I'll get this work done . . .
and be on to more creative 
adventures very soon.

Oh, I've been canning and 
saving garden seed, too :)
Have A Lovely Weekend
Keep Smiling!

A Little Of This & That

Hello Sweet Blogging Sisters.
Look at these sweet pins . . .
They were 3rd prize in 
a Give-A-Way from Kyle
Timeless Reflections

The top of this case held numbered pins
and the bottom held arrows 
all for planing and putting a quilt together.
Kyle is an excellent quilter,
and absolutely leaves me in the dust, LOL.

This fat quarter was included in the prize.
So sweet! 
I am wanting to do a red & white quilt 
before the winter 
is over and I can just see this fabric
 included in it's blocks.  

Check Kyle's beautiful blog out here: 

I've also started a new quilt
that includes these little houses. 

And when I'm not quilting 
or working outside . . .

 I'm canning tomatoes.
21 quarts so far,
but more to do :)

Well, back to work.
I've got garden to pull up,
windows to wash,
and more tomatoes to can.

I hope that you are having 
a productive week . . .
or better yet a week filled
with fun and relaxation.

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)
