Labor Day 2015

Well another summer season has come and gone!  Labor Day is today.  Happy Labor Day everyone!!  John and I pretty much just chilled out today.  I got up to let the dog out, read a little and fell back to sleep, got up read a little more, slept again, finally took a shower, headed to Harris Teeter for some veggies and fruit, came home and had a wonderful dinner with John and now I'm chilling in front of the computer and then I'm off to read!  Now that is my kind of day!!

I have noticed little changes around the garden and yard towards Autumn.  I really cannot wait for Autumn to come.  We have had a very hot and humid summer this year.  While I love summer and I am looking forward to some crisp, cool days, a fire in the fireplace or the firepit outside, making bread, apple crisp and drinking lovely hot tea in the evening!  I don't know about you but this is one of my favorite times of year. 

Time to get the Autumn Wreath I made last year out and hang it on our front door!

I saw some flowering Kale in amongst some grasses and creeping Jenny at Lowes the other day.  I think I will like them for my front 2 black urns at the bottom of the front steps.  I won't decorate my mantel yet, but I'm already planning  what I will be doing on the mantel this year. 

I love the smell of cinnamon and spices.  The lovely orange of pumpkins, the little faces on the Winter pansies I'll plant around the garden, the beautiful Autumn leaves and all the other wonderful Autumn things!!

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend and I hope you are looking forward to Autumn too!!!!

I'm with you on being ready for Autumn--our summer has been unpleasantly hot and humid, too.

The autumn wreath looks great, as do all your header pictures!

What a gorgeous wreath I must look for something similar for Autumn,

Autumn's arrival will be welcome with open arms around here too Sherri - such a long, too hot summer for me.
Your ideas for the new season make me realize I need to start thinking about what to do here - I'll be late though as we're heading back to Europe soon and won't be back until Oct. I hope they don't sell all the pumpkins before I get to my favorite NC pumpkin farm!!

Happy week dear - Mary

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
