At some point I gave my email address to Better Homes and Gardens and they now like to send me emails. The latest one was a little too absurd to ignore. It was titled “Quick and Easy Holiday Guest Room Decor.” I like decorating for holidays, maybe even more than the average person. But if I were having holiday guests stay over, they would just have to deal with seeing the holiday decor in the rest of the house. The guest room (if I had one) would not be done up just for them!
Since fall has arrived, I decided to make chili and cornbread for dinner. That is definitely one meal that needs a certain kind of weather. No way would I make chili when it is 115 degrees outside!
When we go to bed, the kittens retire to their cat condo with their nightly meal of delicious canned cat food. Lumos has decided lately to run the length of the house and flop down on the carpet in the dining room just as soon as I get the cat food ready and turn to pick him up. I know he isn’t running to try to get away as he offers no resistance to being picked up once I reach the dining room where he is lolling around on the carpet. I finally decided he just wants me to get a few extra steps in before I go to bed.
Right now, in what we like to call “fall weather,” my back sliding glass door is open. I can hear a bird of prey (Hubby would know what it is, I don’t) calling. It is a weird, lonely sound I associate with cowboys riding across hot desert landscapes during a spaghetti western, not with me sitting in my house, typing at my computer. But it is a beautiful sound all the same and one I never really heard before I moved to this house.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and stay safe if you are doing any Halloween partying!
