Well where has the week gone?, for that matter where has the summer gone. We're feeling the onset of fall, in the mornings and evenings, it's cooler and cools down quite quickly. I'll be making pots of soups soon, to keep warm, not just to use up my harvest. This week was an exciting time, I enjoyed helping my niece and nephew move into their new home. I have to say I didn't think I had it in me. My sister and I climbed on the counter to give the top of the kitchen cupboards a refreshing wipe. In the old days I wouldn't have needed a ladder, I did this time. But still, I did it. I must say I wasn't even aching the next day. It's so nice to see the excitement in a young family in their new neighbourhood. But, what a lot of work. I'm never moving. I am going to climb on my counter and give my cupboards a refreshing wipe though. We, my sister and I, both had the urge yesterday to clean cupboards. I took an Advil and the urge passed. On the garden front, I'm sitting here enjoying what might well be the last of my rose blooms, no complaints this year, my flowers did awesome, my lawn, not so much. I had a list of to do on my fridge from the beginning of summer and I must admit, little got check off. Other than hauling out my canning jars, I've not made a dent in my garage, or my studio, and I still have no living room curtains. Good thing my garden did so well, mother nature has provided me with the privacy I need. I did however, paint my little heart out. I hesitate or should I say I procrastinate putting up curtains, since I love to paint in that room, it has great natural light, I really live in my living room, it's definitely not for show. But winter is coming and the leaves will leave the trees and you know the rest. On the reading front, I've been reading the Crimson Rooms all week!. not that it's not good, it's just not enough sitting time. I should finish today. We're off to brunch with guests from Latvia today, I finally convinced my husband he should spend some time with them. I'll post pictures next week. I'll be reading This is Where I Leave You, by Jonathan Trooper this upcoming week. And I'm hoping that this week moves slower than the rest. It's back to school for the kids this Tuesday, I only have one going back, I HOPE. So I'll be a maid for the rest of the year to my other one. We'll have to get back into a rhythm for that as well. Have a pleasant week, enjoy the rest of this warmth, and read something interesting.
