These lovely leaves await us this week. There is much raking to be done, but since my husband pulled a muscle in his back the other day, we are holding off for a few days. I did rake the leaves out of my planting beds today, as well as cleared some gutters and removed my now dead impatiens from their pots. We ran some errands and are now home getting ready for dinner. It is getting dark so much earlier now and the house seems cozy and warm. We will be watching the World Series again tonight. Yes, I’m sad that the Red Sox didn’t make it – but they have won twice in the last four years, so we really can’t complain!
This little print of pansies is so sweet. I discovered it in a little antique shop in Cedar Falls, IA. The shop was full of wonderful old prints and I wanted to buy more, but I was limited to one carry-on bag. It is now hanging on our bedroom wall.
