good intentions

Well, I meant to post, and certainly more often than I have been.  I’ve recovered from surgery – thank you all for your good wishes! They meant the world to me! – but I guess my resistance is low, because I have been picking up every single thing I’ve been exposed to.  I think I need a week in a tropical locale to get my stamina and immunity back up.  But since that isn’t going to happen anytime soon, I’m hanging in there. 
There isn’t too much going on here.  But we are going to be starting a pretty big project around here soon.  As soon as we’re ready to go, I will keep you posted with updates.  I’m excited, though also mortified to show you the before photos.  Let’s just say, it isn’t pretty. 

In the meantime, I really haven’t decorated for fall at all, but we do have some mums around.


The geraniums I have up in the back are still hanging in there too.  We’ve really had the loveliest fall weather in the Northeast.


Some fall loveliness.  I love the different colors.


There are always some pretty flowers around here to keep a smile on my face, taken at different times of the day.


And of course, football.


Hope you all are well.





  1. We have lots of mums and then some around here, too! Hope you're completely mended before you tackle your project.

  2. that really is a cool football shot!! glad you are doing well. a big project. sounds fun but the in between is not fun. take care of yourself.

  3. Your pics are fabulous! I hope you are fully recovered, but watch for those germs!

    My 4th grader is playing football, and about 3 other things! I do not like the football though. My nephew was badly injured playing, and I worry!
