Here We Are and It's October, Again


Maria has been redecorating. She's going with a monkey look. Three monkeys sit together, overseeing a mess only a monkey could make. A monkey or a 2 year old girl with energy to spare and a very active imagination.


If you are like us, in So Cal, and the change of season is barely discernible, you may want to visit Lady Harvatine. She has sewn-up a crafty way to bring Fall inside. I have been on the lookout for a maple tree, where I can sit beneath and look up and imagine I am in a forest of Autumn and seasonal beauty. The air is crisp, I can smell the earth and a faint wisp of smoke from logs crackling in someone's fireplace. A breeze stirs the fallen leaves. Branches rustle. A crow calls, and meets others. Far above, clouds are gathering, swirling in a sky so deeply blue it looks infinite.


Autumn touches my senses, or my imagination at least.

  2. Sweet, lovely post...it sounds like fall is starting to happen there :o) I like Maria's decorating--she's got a good sense of the whimsical going there with those monkeys...We could all use a little more whimsy at home. I need to get monkeys ;o) Happy weekend to you all ((HUGS))

  3. A teeny bit of fall weather up here, Natalie. Dark-ish clouds and temps in the low 70s. My Chinese flame tree is starting to think about dropping its leaves.

  4. I wish I could experience autumn. For me, autumn is only in movies and the occasional tv program.

  5. We've been known to maple bright maple leaves to our geographically -challenged friends. Come mid-January, I will be jealous of your weather!

  6. Maple in the mail! A maplegram... I would love it.
    I know real winter is painfully cold and a lot of work, but I have been so romantically smitten with seeing real seasons and having my very own home, I almost convince myself that I could endure a snow filled, icy cold season.
