Our old house has been decorated for Fall... or Harvest time. I don't particularly care for Halloween or the ghastly decorations. Plus, just decorating for "Harvest time" allows you to keep the decorations up all the way to Thanksgiving, and then it's time for Christmas.
Yesterday Grand Rapids hit a record.. 75 degrees on November 4, 2015. Last year the temperature was in the teens with snow. Ah yes.. Michigan. If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes. We have some urns that still have flowers blooming in them (and they've been neglected pretty bad now for several weeks) and tonight Steve mowed the lawn while I jumped on one of the horses and rode bareback for a few minutes. This Fall has been beautiful.. sunny and warm. Not sure what that means in terms of our winter?
Next up... we are re-doing a room upstairs. It will be quite different from the rest of the house, but it is getting there and will be a quiet contemplative room.
