Changes are adrift on the wind.

Hey everyone!  When I say changes are adrift on the wind, I mean literally.  We are having incredible winds today & along with it, much cooler temps.  Yay, it really feels like Fall.  As I was getting dressed this morning, I realized it was actually cool enough for a long-sleeved shirt & pants that came all the way to my feet.  This is quite thrilling to me, since having more of my fluffy/squishiness covered up is much more within my comfort zone.  When I finally sat down to check on my blog, the first thing I noticed was my profile pic.  Well, to be honest with you, that one was about four years old, so I decided to update (or maybe age-date) & let you meet me today.  I had a lot of fun with PhotoBooth & then did some tweaking in PhotoShop (but not that much, really).  I have to say, it used to be very hard for me to show myself wearing glasses (too vain I guess);  but a couple of years ago, I had just had it with the contacts & forced myself to get comfortable with the "specs".  Now I wonder why I let my silliness keep me from being comfortable & actually seeing so much better than I ever did before.  We certainly have some strange hangups as women, don't we?  At least I do.

I haven't had time to do any tablescaping or re-arranging anything.  Lots of other things going on.  My Little Holiday Book   is my constant companion these days as I maneuver through my list of projects.  Spent the last couple of days cutting out quilts, wall hangings & table-runners, which I will be happy to share photos of when they are finished.  My mind starts running at warp-speed this time of year & there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.

How about all of you, my dear blog-sisters?  Do you do lots of handmade gifts, baking, decorating?  I'd love to hear how you handle the holiday fun and chaos.  Please share.

Thanks for stopping by & please come back again soon.

You are adorable. Love your hair and you look fabulous in glasses. I so agree, there just isn't enough time to do it all. No real plans, just go until it is done. lol Hugs, Marty

Wow, even in Arizona it feels like fall?? Would you believe it's 87 degrees today in Baton Rouge with ridiculously high humidity. Honestly, it feels like July rather than almost November. Unbelievable!!!
