I am home at last.. at least until Thanksgiving.. I have so much to do..Change is in the air...The days will be long and I will be busy. It started this morning as I met with a few of my "farm girl chicks." to meet & greet a potential member of our chapter.It was great to have coffee with them. What a treat....Then
I came home to help my husband winterize the fruit trees with mounds of bark & leaves and to add wire to keep the "chickens" out of the straw & bark mounds. (boy! they love to undo our work, by scratching for yummy chicken bugs and other goodies) I also planted my crocus bulbs for next Spring.
I got home Monday from my latest trip to Washington, and unpacked a ton of new things to decorate our nest with. While away I visited my dear friend Leila in North Bend . I was able to Spend the night and enjoyed some great "girl time"...She was making changes in her home decor and unloaded many items from her storage and house to my car. We have had the same taste for country decor and she has inspired me to change some things too..... She has discarded some great items...and I couldn't pass up the offers. My car trunk & back seat were really loaded with New Decorating Stuff..to hang on my walls, set on my tables and craft items for creating my new look.. My poor husband will be shocked to see just how much "Stuff" I brought home....I will share them with you as I complete the projects...but first I have to paint the walls in the dining room and finish the painting of the trim in the guest bath & hang some draperies in the Family room.... I have a deadline for some of these improvements by November 13th when I am hosting the November Charming Chick meeting and birthday party...I am really excited to get started... Do you have a good friend like me who really inspires you?
