It is officially fall around here. I know the calendar would have something to say about my proclamation, but I have seen the signs and summer is over. That can mean only one thing – Fall has begun!
Sign #1 – we spent yesterday getting the pool ready for winter – this involves a thorough cleaning, a filter disassembling and then wrestling with the gigantic cover, all the while screaming at the pugs to get off of it. This happens every year and every year about halfway through the process I corral them back into the house (another process that involves screaming) all the while muttering that I should have never let them out in the first place and why don’t I ever learn.
Sign #2 – alarms went off early this morning and D#2 is off to start her Junior year of high school. The college selection process is on her horizon – egads! There was a flurry of phone calls last night as outfits and hairdos were discussed.
Sign #3 – talk of upcoming Rhinebeck fun is reaching a fevered pitch! Outfits and hairdos have also been discussed. I am campaigning for capes.
Sign #4 – did you check out my new banner image?
In my last entry I promised you pictures ……
new kitchen table!
it has a distressed pine top and a maple bottom painted with black over red. Also has extender boards for either end which make it fantastically big. You can sort of see the matching bench on the far side. The hunt is on hunt for new chairs.
