Can you believe it? It will be 91 degrees today. Too hot. I hear it is Fall but.....My roses don't know it yet! This rose is planted by the storage house in the back yard. I didn't plant has been here since Sweet Mama bought this house. It always has looked a little sickly but this year it has persevered. It has decided to grow....and grow...and grow! A little house sure hasn't got it the way! So it reminds me that no matter the challenges...never give up!
I'll let you know if it blooms!

Change of Season?

The days are getting a little cooler...sort of! It starts out chilly and then ended pretty warm. It has been in 80's in the afternoons. I have been waiting to change out my clothes from summer to winter...I guess that will have to wait. Good thing I have some Halloween t-shirts!

Beau, no matter the weather, can always find a patch of sun. Hope your Sunday has been a relaxing as his!

The past few weeks have been busy! After a trip out of town to the DR and minor surgery things were starting to calm down...then the rain came! Of course we needed it but we got 5 1/2 inches in one day! That's not as much as they got in N.C. but for us it was plenty! Lots of tree branches came down...and I had to haul them to the street. After I moved the cushions out of the wet area of the porch, Belle found a great napping place! Whew!!

Now after rest and relaxation I am back to my old self...just in time for all the Holiday orders to start! Did I tell you that I now have 700 sales my shop? I hope to make 1000 by January!! It could happen...! :)
