these full fall days

came and went
with such ferocious pace
I feel dizzy from the aftermath

day to day 
happenings like
cleaning and shopping
pet care
more cleaning
we have 3 bathrooms...eew
 because we all need more of that
mix in
part-time work
just to put a cherry on top of it all
you get it...
day to day
all year long

this post is about 
those extras in life that need attending
some joyous
some not so much

a wedding fits in the first category

our oldest
eloped with his bride
and they had a beautiful party
to celebrate
Angela is a vegetarian chef
how perfect is that?

it goes
almost without saying
that the food was made and catered
by jake and angela
with a little help from our gang
and grandma of course!

not one picture of the 
happy couple

oh yes i do!
i hope you appreciate
that i stopped what i was doing
(blogging mid-week!)
to take that pic
and post
just for you.

but wasn't it so worth it?
they have a friend who is a graphic artist
and they made these magnets
as a gift to guests
so sweet

onto the not so fun category
but so glad to have it

one of those fast-paced weekends
were tagged to paint the porch
rain out
joe decided he wanted his room
painted so we pointed
our brushes in his direction
elephant skin

just enough gray
without being dingy
mixed with 

goes great with what he
already has
the only extra expense
the curtains
since his roman shades were
literally falling apart

i need to footnote here
that we are not the kind to
change paint colors
in our bedrooms
on a regular basis
in fact
joe's room hadn't been painted since it 
was added to our home
15 years ago!
how time does fly.
boy did it need it.

these pictures are obviously
not propped
he still wants to hang some posters
which i will let him.
the rest is his gig.

one last view
taken in the middle of the afternoon
blackout curtains
for the gamer
where glare is the enemy

they were from target
cheap and energy efficient
my boy is happy


on a sunny weekday
because you can't wait for
a nice weekend
once mid-autumn approaches

painted that porch
railings and framing

the floor!

going for the moss green
that i loved on this
gooseberry patch cover

came close
although in this lighting
it looks more gray
which i'm good with
it too is

went for another angle.
still seeing gray.

i'm thinking a touch-up in the spring
will make it 

outdoor furniture put away
garden put to rest
(almost...still have some cabbage and jalapenos!)
brought plants in

that couldn't survive
being left out

more family gatherings
a halloween that wasn't
we just went out for dinner
kinda sad
leaves still need raking
 planning for upcoming holidays
that will be here
 before we know it

since november is the 
second fastest month of the year

and then
 the brakes hit.

otherwise known as

now i'm off to write my novel 
in a month.
that's nanowrimo
check it out!
