Fall Decorations at Our House

I enjoy decorating our house for fall. I bring out the orange, rust and brown table runners and table cloths, as well as the plastic pumpkins and straw people. I also switch out the quilt that hangs over the piano, from the pastels of spring and summer to the orange patchwork.
I love the look of fall colors inside the house against the changing leaves just outside the window. The Saturday after Thanksgiving we'll bring in the Christmas tree and all the trimmings. But, until then, we'll snuggle into fall.
Any seasonal decorating at your place?

How Cub Scouts Learn to Put Up a Tent

They practice in the living room. With their dads. And little sisters.

What I've Been Doing All Month

I've been officially called on the carpet for my lack of blog posts in the month of October. The "cousin-who-shall-not-be-named" has noticed the shocking neglect of my blog. So, here's what's been going 200 words or less.

October 2--Family camping trip that included a strange museum, apples and a leaking sink
October 9--The first of my (gulp) daughter's friends got married.
October 16--I'm sure we were doing something, but I can't remember what.
October 23--We cleaned out the smaller of our sheds. I will not be a hoarder, I will not be ...

In between, we had an exploding water heater. Did you know that a water heater can shoot water as high as the ceiling? It can. We still have a dehumidifier running 24/7 to get the wood floors dry.

The day after the water heater blew its top, the washing machine stopped working. Did you know that wires can come out of "unmentionables" and clog up the pump of your washer? They can.

Oh, and I won eleven ribbons at the SC State Fair.

How was your month?
