Indian Summer with a Chair & Table Teaser

Was wondering if you have selected your picture for your holiday card, yet? If not, that is your challenge this week! Leave me a comment & let me know how it is coming along. 

We are enjoying our Indian summer. I have been mandating that the kids have to go play outside after school this week. They don't mind. This is our "in-between time" when they start pining for snow. Really! We visited some good friends this weekend in Cleveland & my kids were overjoyed to have a snowball fight! Please pray for my friend Mrs L. as she is recovering from an incident in which she was burned by a coffee spill while at the drive-thru at *Starbucks*.  She is a mom of 3 and had to spend 3 days in ICU & is still bandaged from knees to the waist.  Please just pray for my sweet friend Mrs. L. And be very careful with all hot things. 

Here is what today looks like around here, with a few leaves left on the Japanese maple and the gorgeous blue sky:

My trusty companion, who does NOT smell like skunk today, as she did 2 weeks ago! Poor thing had to endure numerous baths of Dawn, hydrogen peroxide, & baking soda. If your dog gets skunked, email me & I will give you the protocol. That was a crazy day! Very funny now!

A few leftover roses, oh how much I adore these:

Chair & table teaser. Stay tuned for my kitchen table & chair project! I have to sort through the before pics. Post coming very soon!
