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
at
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 :)
