Random thoughts on a brilliantly sunny crisp fall morning:
1. There is no better weather than crisp fall. When you walk out your door and the sun is shining and there’s a chill in the air and the morning is crisp and you run back into the house to get a sweater on.
It’s the weather when cold is still fun.
2. It’s official. All Christmas all the time on the Hallmark channel. I just heard someone singing Hark the Herald Angels Sing in the other room.
3. I went to the BEST yard sale yesterday. The kind where your pile of things you are buying starts at the front door. I found a GIANT 48″ piece of beautiful needlepoint art in fall colors. Details to come.
4. Last night was our homecoming here in town. In sad news, we lost in double overtime. In what in the world news, I saw people I went to high school with. They looked so much older than I think I look. How is that possible when still think I look so young?
Has anyone else noticed this?
Am I the only one?

I love parties. But picking up after them?
Not so much.
(total aside: my favorite is the dishpan rule.)
And can we still be friends if I tell you nothing makes me happier than a messy house tour?
There’s just something real about it.
Here’s one of my favorites.
