Cool, Crisp, and Yellow, No Mellow

You know how sometimes you just really wanna write somethin funny, or happy, or at the very least post somethin positive on your blog and you sorta feel like not those ways?


I woke up at 6:42, or at least that’s when I asked The Mister what time it was. He brought me coffee at 7. Mmm, MY coffee. I got the girls off to school and you know where I hafta go the rest of the day?

I went to all the places yesterday. Drove all the roads and spent all the money and saw all the people and came home with all the receipts shoved into my bag so that I could find out we’re on our last sponge and we need trash bags.

That couldn’t bring me down because yesterday morning, even before 6:42, The Mister and I made the good snuggles, all warm in our cozy bed of the many cottons, while the windows were open and the nature noises spoke to us as our languid bodies pressed into one another, everything entwined —


It was Thursday and that means doors and kittens and only one more sleep til Friday. And on Friday, the kids don’t have earlies OR afters!


So far today, I’ve eaten a bowl of warm buttery griiiiits and a quarterΒ of an entire a bowl of watermelon and I’m thinkin bout lunch. I dunno what I’ll nom, but I can tell you there’s a big ol pot of pasta fagioli simmerin on my stove. It’s sans pasta as of yet, because well, if you cook, you know, but still, it smells like heaven and dinner is gonna be hellagood tonight.

It’s 73 outside, gonna get down to 47 again.




I can actually hear the squirrels scurry away with their loot.
AND! I saw black-capped chickadees in the hawthorn tree this mornin!
AND! There are goldybugs in my goldenrod!


One day, it’ll be barn jacket weather.

Happy Friday Everyone!

  1. Yahoo! I get to be the first “like” and “comment.” I can see you’re having the same sort of wonderful Friday that I am: cool, fall weather, coffee for National Coffee Day (I got a $2 small mocha at McDo, then sat by the river in downtown Naperville and relaxed), and no special agenda until “Blue Bloods” comes on at 9 pm CST tonight. Ending the day with Tom Selleck is always good. May your day continue to be full of joy and relaxation and your weekend full of fun.

    Finally you’re getting the fall! Wonderful! We’re making another stew and cornbread for tonight, because yep, it’s still fall and drizzly around here, too. Our heater has been turned on the past few days, and I wore a jacket when we went out yesterday! Wishing you lots of barn jacket weather to come! Happy Friday! πŸ™‚

    Our leaves are just beginning to fall today. I plan on enjoying every last one of them as they drift to the ground now that autumn is finally here. Your dinner sounds delicious. Enjoy it and the weekend.

  12. Days without an agenda are awesome! We went out to dinner for the hubby’s birthday last night and I was grumbling to him about how it was hot outside and how Joey got to wear boots and a hoodie and I want some cold. Today, I put my tank top on to head out for our day, went outside and was like “Oh ma lord, it’s cold” I had to put on a long sleeve and we rode through the Blue Ridge Mountains with the windows down. It started at 64 degrees and ended up at 60 during the climb. Yay Fall!!

  13. The frost in the forecast in these parts will put the chill on the goldybugs, but I’m happy for the cool. As I know you are, too. Cheers, dear.

    It’s so good to feel the happiness in your “voice” ! I was off today. I worked outside, all day in long jeans, not shorts, jeans. I had a flannel shirt on in the am. Of course, I also got our snow blower ready for the season, but, hey, it’s OK.

    So jealous of your cold weather. Today I abandoned all plans that involved going outside while the sun was still up.

  22. Enjoy, Joey! It’s also my most favorite season of all. Even when it’s still warm I create my mini fall with pumpkins on my counter and under my porch, pumpkiny tea and food…
    Not too Halloween but big fall fan!
