Six Word Saturday

Our Camping Season is Probably Over

We had plans to head out this weekend to use our camper one last time for the season HOWEVER weather at the campground was forecast to be lousy so we decided to stay home. I am sorry as it seems sad to cover up the camper and know it won't be used again for awhile. On the other hand we can now start looking forward and making plans for camping for next year. So it isn't all bad and we can look back at the great memories we made this year. We went to one Nascar Race, five Blue Grass Festivals and one Blue Grass jam weekend in the camper. Who knows what we will add next year.

golden leaves are falling

It is particularly lovely outside when you get to spend time enjoying the fall leaves. Ours seem to fall in the yellow category, but an occasional red or orange mixed in. Not quite the variety of color there was in Maine but still lovely.

And our "burning bush" is in full color now.

But alas, all good things must come to an end........ and now it is time to rake.....

Here in our town you get to rake your leaves to the curb and the town comes by and literally vacuums them up in a very noisy but effective truck.

I noticed our neighbors little one was enjoying jumping in the piles of leaves before they were raked to the curb. I remember when our kids were little and liked to do the same thing.

Mini Monday

Trying to get better organized with blogging..... So will "try" to do something about Miniatures and Dollhouses every Monday.

Today I am going to show off a gift I just received. I belong to a group called GSOLFOT and every so often our illustrious leader says we must sign up for a "MAKE" It is usually dreaded at first cause we never know what we will be told to make but we sign up anyway and are always glad we did. The Autumn Make 2009 was to be a "character" not made of doll parts.

At first most of us were a little leary but things have come together. My very good friend Sally Watson (from the UK) got my name and I just received her "character" It is THE GREEN MAN. I love it. He is presently sitting outside a little woodland house project I have "sort of" started.
Here is the Green Man

Come by next Monday to see the "character" I made for my MAKE. I am just mailing it off today so need to give Gail time to receive it.
