It's Fall!


It's time for a:


                                                                       Hay Ride!


I needed the hay from the barn and Chance loves to ride in the wagon.  This is what I used the hay for:


I know I post too many pictures, but I really don't have anything worth while to talk about...nothing deep anyway!  And I don't have a life!

Well, this is "same song, different verse", but I'm remodeling again!  Remember last year?  Does it ever end?  Yes...but then you move...or at least I did!  So  here is a before and after picture so that you can see what I've been doing.


                                                                  Before:  Lemon yellow


                                                                   After:  Wilderness Trail

If you've been paying attention, you know that this is the same green I painted my living room in Decatur!  Sue me.  I like it.

We've also had roofers here for the past 2 days.  I think they're finished now...I hope so.  The mess and the hammering are on my last nerve!

Gotta go take some Tylenol and soak in a hot tub is hard!

But one more picture...okay?

Love is...



                                               Having a new friend!



PS:  My apologies!   I couldn't resist!  It just looked liked one of those cheesy 70's posters!  Chance and Cheddar are inseparable.  (True meaning:  Cheddar keeps getting into Chance's bubble! 
Even dogs need their space.)

The newest member of our family




We adopted him today from the shelter.  He's very sweet and lovable.  (And hopefully a really good mouser!)

One more picture, please!

Behind Door Number One...






                                  My new and improved sewing room!


                  This will look better soon with a few thing on the wall.


                                         I have a few things on the floor!


                                   Yay!   I have room for my quilting machine.     

I'm so, so happy that I have "my very own sewing room".  I haven't gotten everything put up yet, but I haven't gotten everything in the house where it goes either!  But since I plan to never, ever move again I think I have time!

Last week when I was in Decatur, Bonnie and I went to Hobby Lobby.  While there, we looked at fall wreaths.  $50!  For real?  So...I bought a few things, went to the woods behind the new house, got kudzu vines (about the only thing it's good for!) and made a didn't cost $50!



But with all the rain, maybe I should have been buying umbrellas instead!  Are any of you waterlogged?  I'm so sick of it!  It's rained everyday for 2 weeks.  It's's muggy!  I'm getting soggy!  I'd really appreciate a nice cool, fall day!

Gotta go paint some baseboards...

I was just reminded that I haven't blogged in a while.  Awhile?  Can you say a month?  Wow!  I've never been away that long.  But I have an excuse...really!  We've finally moved!  Yay!

Well...sorta.  We've moved in.  Do we have all our stuff?  Nooooo.  We're leaving the most of it in the old house.  Leaving it there is suppose to help it sell know...HGTV...the new thing...staging?  Yeah...that means there's an empty house sitting in Decatur, AL with my furniture in it.  While I sit here on 35 acres with only a  bed, a  couch, and a big, ol' honkin' TV!  On which we watch Alabama football, Nascar and the stock report.  (Sarcasm!)  I've gotta be nice though, because I was allowed to watch Big Brother 11 on it!  And if I'm not nice, I won't be able to watch Biggest Loser on it, or NCSI, or Survivor, or....well, you know.  And I really shouldn't complain anyway, because we had to buy new stuff until we can get our old stuff!  (And...I will have my old stuff before Thanksgiving even if the house hasn't been sold!) about a few pictures of the new place?  You've all seen the about a few of the inside?




                                                                Another view


                                                One of my obsessions - Fiestaware


                                               My place in the corner of the kitchen


Dining room...sans dining room table and chairs.  Due to now having a big, ol' honkin' TV, we didn't need the entertainment center anymore, so I put my china cabinet I have a big, ol' honkin' china cabinet!  LOL


My new couch...which matches my love seat and chair...which I don't have.  Also...see the lemon yellow walls?   Look quickly 'cause soon they'll be green!


                                                                  The big, ol' honkin' TV!

So!  That's enough of the tour for now.  I'm sure you've just about gone blind with the amount of pictures I've posted!  Sorry some of them are so's night...what do you expect?  I'll try to take the others in the daylight.  Yeah, I'll have if that doesn't scare you away nothing will!

But, now you know where I've been lately and what I've been doing.  My conscience is now clear!

(Thanks for reminding me Jennifer...or was that nagging?)
