Yesterday was a beautiful day... I make a big deal about the first day of every season, but I must confess I make a production out of Autumn!!!
You may recognize the pretty flowers from my cousin... all trimmed and festive with a few silken leaves... The pumpkin is from QVC several years ago. When these flowers fade, I will use it to house my huge order of Fall coffee. I couldn't go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, but good old Amazon provideth... 96 cups of coffee for $32. (33 cents a cup) That is a pretty cool price for K-cups. My son likes plain coffee in the morning, and I like plain (and really love flavored) in the afternoon and late night... So only on weekends do I make a whole pot... Here is the link if you think it sounds fun
I welcomed the start of Fall with candles and tea... and new plans for crafting. Some of my friends have been confirmed with COVID-19, and some have been exposed recently. Our schools in the area have shut down to only distance learning for a couple of weeks. It is just quite depressing... According to the local news we are actually experiencing the first wave since we were practically untouched until recently. I think that translated to the realization that my son and I have sequestered since February... but really only needed to start in August... lol... Oh, well... as I used to say all the time, "Whatever!" My mother despised that exclamation for some reason!
I have a fun cross-stitch chart waiting her turn (she may nudge the Mayflower a bit!) And I ordered some pretty yarn for crochet projects (since I had none here stashed in multiple spots!!! ????? WHATEVER!)
