Trading in Autumn for.........Winter.
Now we really haven't had any really cool weather or even changing leaves, they are mostly falling off the trees because they can't stay on any longer. The weather is warm, unseasonably so, it is hard to get in the Christmas spirit with all this heat and humidity. We have very few berries on our holly tree, wonder what that means for the coming winter?
Trading places with plants on my lanai, hoping they get the right amount of sun to make them happy. The taller plants were my parents, as was the little Christmas cactus in the middle of the table. The big Christmas cactus is the one I thought was going to die earlier this year, it has come back beautifully and is getting ready to bloom.
Trading weeds for plants with beautiful colors for the season. It is finally cool enough to not melt the plants in my garden, I did this all a week ago and all of my new plants look happy so far.
Trading in my attempts at the The Lakeside Pullover for the Slouchy Stripe Cardigan. I got about 6 inches done on the Lakeside Pullover before I realized the fabric was not all that forgiving, and frankly if it is going over my belly I need forgiving, so I started over with another pattern. A cardigan that is slouchy, well you can't beat that, and my protruding belly will be happy, it is a win-win.
I am not trading in this new little Christmas cactus for my SIL's. You know me I LOVE Christmas cacti.
Trading in Thanksgiving decorations for Christmas. I am all decorated inside my house except for the tree. Never my favorite thing Christmas trees, and with two puppies and a 7 year old, well it might be a Christmas disaster this year. I am holding off for a few weeks before I put it up.
Trading time with all my boys home as Mr 21 will head back to school tomorrow. He'll be back soon, after finals with his girlfriend for a few days. She will return to spend Christmas with us, I am thrilled just to have a little feminine energy in this house full of testosterone.
Nope, not trading these two. But I did trade collars for chest harnesses and now we are able to walk the neighborhood without me screaming and getting my shoulder ripped apart.
Trading in the weekend for a new week, after four days off in a row you would think I would be ready to go back but honestly I am not!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend, so much to be thankful for this year. Have a great week my friends..
