Winters Winds Are Blowing In...Sort Of

Happy Monday before Thanksgiving Everyone!

Jack is already on holiday break!  It's so hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already here, with the Christmas season just beyond.  Where the heck did this year go? Anyway, today we were blessed with temps in the 70's but with the promise of thunderstorms dropping the temperatures to more seasonal levels overnight.  I thought what better time than now to get out and get the roses trimmed back so they won't be whipping in the wind as winter creeps in.  Of course I forgot to take the camera out while Jack and I were working, but I did run back out and take some photos so you guys could see what a difference Autumn makes around here.

btw...I already DID the leaves, several times actually. What's left is just gonna have to be left! :)

And of course the reason for being out there....

These are on their last leg, but I couldn't resist saving them to bring inside anyway. They smell heavenly!

Once we were back inside I had promised Jack that he could give his Chia Kung Fu Panda another go round.   This silly thing was a gift from one of his brothers last year.  After it died back, we set him and the extra seeds aside to re do it at a later time. So that was today!

Jack loves this thing!

Hope everyone is having fun getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner and precious time with family and friends!   We celebrate Thanksgiving at my sisters house, so I won't be having any Turkey recipes or photos to share on that matter, BUT...I did get a daring new area rug over the weekend and will be posting that this later this week!


  1. The kids were here yesterday for Thanksgiving, so J and I started the decorating today.

    The weather did take a turn this afternoon. Had some lightning, thunder and rain here this afternoon. Weatherbug says it is still 70. I saw snow predicted in the NW corner of MO.

  2. Wow! I could feel that underlying coolness in the wind, but we had no storms here. Only sprinkles! It's threatening to do something now though. I can't wait, I love thunderstorms! And snow....boy, don't even get me started on my love of snow falling!

    I read you were having your family for Thanksgiving this past weekend. I need to scoot on over to the Back Porch and catch up on how things went! And of course can hardly wait to get a peek at your decorations!

  3. Hi:)))
    Your yard STILL looks beautiful!
    (And i want to jump in those leaves. Let me know when you have them all raked up in a pile again;))
    Hugs....and have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving Sheree! Ooh, if my boys saw those leaves, they'd go nuts!
    Can't wait to see what "daring" equals! heehee!

    xo, Amber

  5. Amber, In the picture with the new rug is a preview of where that burlap pillow I purchased from you, calls home! With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I'll probably wait until Friday or Saturday to post it. :)
