I. Must. Buy. Snowmen.
I. Need. More. Snowmen.

There is room on my shelves for more snowmen…

I’ve found a friend who likes to take long walks.
I like to take long walks, too.
I try to go 5 miles a day.
Or more.

This is where we walk:

It’s beautiful, particularly now.
It’s also cold right now.
And getting colder.

Which means:

I hope your mug is full of hot chocolate. 🙂

Hugs,

This is what the sky looked like
when the weather report predicted rain.

This is a good reminder
not to pay much attention
to forecasts of doom and gloom.

Happy November!

Love,

My teen drew a picture at school.
Shocking, right? A school that still offers art classes, huh?

She calls this picture, “Mr. Skellington.”
I call this picture, “Mr. How-The-Heck-Did-My-Kid-Do-This?”

Answer: A fantastic art teacher
And a kid who loves to draw.

Mr. Skellington is the most fascinating skeleton I’ve met.
He looks friendly, like he’s smiling at a joke.

Maybe the joke is on me.
Because I’d forgotten how important an art class can be.

May you have many pleasant surprises
this Halloween week!

I saw this in the hardware store.

Clearly, it’s time to decorate for Christmas.
I’m ready. Gimme anything with lights, and it’s going up.

By the way, I can’t skate worth a darn.
But maybe if I put little skaters in my house, I’ll learn.
Hey, wait a minute. Is this a Christmas decoration?

Yes, my friends.
This is Santa’s spider.
He’ll stand near my porch,
right under the Christmas garland.

My husband invited me out to dinner.
I went shopping for the event,
and bought this necklace:

I felt pretty fashionable,
but my necklace kept crushing my food.
And my chest. And my vertebrae. And my soul.

I begged my dog to chew up my new necklace.
She laughed…and chewed leftovers, instead.

Moral of the story:
It’s not the outside that counts.
What’s inside the doggy bag is what counts.

For me, autumn starts in October.
This is what the meadow looks like, near our house:

 I’m inspired to bake apple pies, wear sweaters, and eat apple pies.
Which explains my sudden weight gain every fall.

October also marks my wedding anniversary.
It’s a good month to cuddle.

I urge you to celebrate your anniversary in October.
Dinner reservations are easy to get all month long.
The cool weather is perfect for romantic walks
and cuddling in front of a warm fire.

BUT FIRST,
make sure your beloved likes apple pie.

If you’re looking for something different to bake,
try making apple cake.

We got new patio furniture.
The chairs have CUSHIONS!!!!
They are sooooo comfy. Oh, happy day!
I love to sit outside and work. Much better than an office.

Problem is, there are a lot of distractions.
Birds singing. Wind blowing. Insects landing on me.
Yesterday, I might’ve swallowed a spider.

At least I didn’t eat a bee.

My brother has a beautiful wife, who loves Irish Wolfhounds.
Now we love Irish Wolfhounds, too.

img_2401-2

My brother’s wolfhound is HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE.
180 pounds, give or take.

img_2389

He is great company, but he’s a little clumsy.
He bumps into things, knocks things over, drops things.

But we love him, anyway.

There’s just one bad thing about owning an Irish Wolfhound…

You’ve gotta use a VERY big poop bag.
