Good beautiful morning everyone!! is glorious here today in Washington state..I truly love these indian summer/fall days..can't wait to get out in it..going for a walk this morning..then working in the yard..this time on the other side of the house..putting down black plastic, and gravel/rock or more bark..whichever is more task to mark off and not worry about..the leaves are starting to gotta get out the rake and or blower and get rid of the mess..will take before and afters of our yard you can see what we are up too..well yesterday I hit the town hard and got everything but one errand that was pretty good in 4 hours time..hit 7 stores like a hurricane and got er done..I went to joanns to pick up some fall/christmas supplies for my decorating and upcoming show in december...and everything was on sale but one used my 40% off off coupon and 10% off my total coupon..gotta love coupons..I got these 2 grapevine wreaths to make santa head wreath door hangers..I am using a tennessee ridge pattern that I purchased the other day.
and I got some fall accorn picks to decorate with...I am pulling out my "fall" stuff this week and then halloween the end of the month..I have wayyyyyy toooo muuuuccch stuff..but i love it..gave away alot last year to our old renters if you recall..should do it again this year..we shall see..
I picked up some more fabric..i love this autum fabric..wouldn't this make a cute table runner..oh I just may have to do it..
and a cute towel to go with that cute fabric..its on my stove as we speak..
more wool felt (sorry blurry photo) not your eyes playing tricks on you..
well its offical..I have hit the 50 pound mark..hence the happy dance..oh my gosh..I am so happy..and feel so good..truly..I feel better then I have in years..just wish I had done it years ago..that leaves 32 pounds left to go..hoping to lose another 7 by the time I go home on the 15th for my 30th reunion..but am happy right won't stress to much..I just had that goal in my head for when I started.:) oh and we just changed our little guys is offically Stewart or Stewie for short..its after one of our favorite animated you know which one? and for the "Mad T" character..Stewart.."look what I can do" you know the character? his current favorite toy is a tin foil ball..which he is playing with right now..otherwise he would be in his clean litter box playing in it..(just found him doing this just now)..happy as a had to get his mind off of made him yet another tin foil ball to play

okay I have rambled on enough for one day..gotta get this butt in gear and get to yard work..the walk will wait..(course after yard work..might not want the walk)..
