It may now officially be FALL but it still feels like summer here in North Texas!
Indeed! 95 degrees!!!
Our 10 day forecast from my favorite weather person, Colleen Coyle, shows that cooler weather IS coming! I want to get up in the middle of the night next Tuesday just to FEEL that 61 degrees! I will wrap a blanket around my shoulders and sip a cup of hot coffee and sigh......I am yearning for cooler temps and open doors and sweaters and being chilly and see the leaves falling.
But none of that happened today.
Louis Dean took himself off to do errands around noon and I decided to go back up to the little resale shop I visited yesterday.
I bought this skirt which will totally make me look like I'm wearing a doily but I don't even care.
I love lace and loose clothes.
I went up there for this top - which is UNDER the sweater. I like the way it is angled with the sides tapering in points. As an act of anticipation, I hung this up to encourage my heart that it will be cool enough to wear it - someday and hopefully soon.
I painted Tuesday night and then last night and Ruth Ann came over to paint with me this afternoon.
She's finishing up a Santa from last year before we start our new one in another week or two.
I based in another sunflower painting......
actually, I based in three canvases!
Two sunflower ones and the truck painting.
Once they are based in and dry, then I will bring them into focus with more definition and colors.
Right now they don't look too promising,,,,,but they will!
I made two pans of cornbread for Louis Dean this evening. We made a deal. If he promised not to crumble the cornbread into his glass and get crumbs all over the place but instead take it to the sink and crumble away - I would make him the TWO batches he requested.
He's a man of his word!
All the plants were in dire need of a good watering so that was my chore this evening and it took a couple of hours. I would set the hose to spray in the back and then go out front and set the hose up and then go back and forth. Louis Dean was really busy watching football but at halftime he came out and helped me finish up.
I blew out the gazebo and both decks, wiped things down and watered everything pretty good.
Fall is a messy season outside with all the leaves and pecans and twigs falling but I do love it so!
It's been a productive day and I am happy with all I got done.
Now I am so tired all I want to do is get a hot shower and go to bed!
