So we saw they have snow up north in

Iowa today.  We have temperatures here 

at about 42 degrees so after a long, hot

 summer that feels very cold.

I am sharing some fall decorating at our house.

So as part of our kitchen we have a

hearth room where we put some of our

 more formal antique pieces.

 Our home is very casual.  We are retired

and that is reflected in our home.

I am enjoying the fall transferware

pieces mixed in with some fall and

thanksgiving cookbooks.

We used our fireplace

last night and it felt wonderful.

Some were are saying it will be a colder

winter so we shall see if that is correct.

It isn't saying that here!

We are finishing up our last of the out of doors

projects this week and Thursday promises warmer

weather so that will be much appreciated!

 Welcome to my blog and glad you could visit

for another pausing time. 

 Let's have a cup of

tea in my garden.

It is very windy out so when the wind comes

up, I will be holding this vase.  I lost

2 vases this summer by having them out on 

windy days.

I love the older faded and soft quilts.

We are finishing up lots of things in

the garden and outside today.

I am sure you are doing the same.

It seems every project always takes longer

than we remember it taking the last

time we did it.  We must block it out of our

memory somehow.

We are having lovely cool days now. 

 It started to cool off the last couple of weeks

of August and then into September there was

a huge change.  You know that feeling of

shock that it could feel so cool after a 

hot summer.  Our furnace has come on

at night already.

My husband and I have stayed close to home 

with the dangers and concerns about Covid. 

 Our hospitals here in Columbia have

 17 patients with

 417 active cases in our county.

I hope you are well and staying safe.
