Two days in row! I "hopped" out of bed for an early morning walk again this morning. I don't have to leave for work until 8 a.m., but in order to walk at the same time as my husband runs I have to get up with him. For the record getting up at 4:30 a.m. is ridiculous!! I am currently lobbying for 4:45 a.m. So much better :) This morning these little guys greeted me...not sure but they might be laughing at me being up so early.
Saw this sign in someone's yard. I can't remember the last time I bought Avon, but I am certain it was too early to knock on the door or call. My sister gets sometimes orders cute little chapsticks and lotions from Avon. They make good stocking stuffers. Her youngest is 12 years old so that kind of thing is always a hit. I remember at that age I loved the peppermint stick chapstick...I think it made me lick my lips even more :) Am I showing my age too much if I say my pre-teen perfume of choice was Avon's Sweet Honesty?
As much as I am getting into the morning walking again I do miss seeing the world in the light of day. Yesterday when I got home I decided to take a pre-dinner walk. Two walks in one day! This picture was taken almost a mile into the walk.
I am no one to judge someone for not raking leaves (I don't do it), but someone is going to have quite a weekend project. We usually run the mower over our leaves because we never have this many. It made me want to scoop them all up into a pile and pretend to be a kid again! That might have been awkward when the people got home from work :(
Fall flowers now surround Birdhouse City. I love the dark pink/purple. I think those and rust colored mums are my favorite. Take a look back at Birdhouse City's August flowers.
I thought this decoration was super clever. I resisted the urge to go home and immediately paint my doors orange! I love that they offset the face instead of trying to make the whole face fit on the door. Is it wrong to "pin" my own blog so I don't forget how cute this is??
I had a near crisis yesterday. I had stopped at Aldi for groceries. As I was loading the groceries I heard a noise. I looked down and my engagement ring had slipped off my finger. Panic! Thankfully, I found it just underneath the back of my car. I am SO glad I heard it hit the pavement or it may have been gone forever. It is safe at home until I can figure out how to wear it safely. I waited a long, long time for an engagement ring and I want to wear it forever.
I am currently obsessed with these red grapes. Aldi has been selling 2 pound bags for less than $2. I love Aldi for its produce - good prices and good quality. I photographed them by this glass just for a gratuitous shot of Grimace - enjoy :)
Eating Well's Easy Chicken Cassoulet. It is really good comfort food (400ish calories) and the recipe only serves two so I can't have seconds.
Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!
