"Working To Get Into The Swing Of Things-Slowly"

This last month has been one heck-of-a blur..
Fast and Furious "All Girl Trip" from Washington to Southern California...
Driving, Driving, Driving, which admittedly was very fun..but honestly can be hard on this ole bod of mine..
Journaling, reading, knitting, singing along to Lady Gaga.."Poker Face..sang many times at the top of our lungs!
Stops along the way, enjoyable, pleasurable, perfect!
So much packed into 5 days, exhausting but in a good way..ending with a delightful day in Disneyland and Newport Beach...such a beautiful beach and where my son in-law proposed to my daughter..
Back home to my guys, house as I left it-amazing!
Back to work, very busy days..
What weird weather we're having in this here part of the states..
91 one day, 78 the next, 88 the next 68 the next..
Dressing in layers has taken on a whole new meaning..and dare I mention what these weather changes do to an ole gal with arthritis..
Whoa..not good..but I, as is my nature, whine a bit and then soldier on, ya know one foot in front of the other and all that!

So here I am working to get back in the groove beginning with some favorite "Fall Things" for me this week..

To start:

Definitely need to begin with this..

Totally want to do this..

I think these would be beautiful additions to my quilted potholders..hmmmm

A perfect idea..need this big time..made with toilet paper tubes..

Random..but I miss these "Golden Girls"

Can I go here? Like right now and just stand for a day or two and stare..a real place in Denmark!!!

I think I need this or is this just a want thing!!!! So adorable and my perfect color!

Cracked me up so bad..happens quite often when I am talking to my 19 year old son...big surprise! :-)

My winter shopping list..pretty much all I need, well not ALL I need, maybe a couple more sweaters like these maybe..

But in my size please...

Love this..


and this for sure..

love, love, love these..

Ok enough already with the clothes and hey I can dream!!..

all my absolutely favoritist colors in the whole wide world..

My mouth is watering like Niagara Falls, gotta make this  soon!!
