September's here, and nearly gone, But leaves have yet to turn.

The weathers hot, no misty morn's,
No leaves to pile and burn.

Bittersweet and pumpkins bought,
Summer's hanging on.

I'll wait some days, I should not rush,
Fall will come along.

Becky Carney

This is what it looks like now. I did not take these pictures, but this is beautiful Virginia. These last 3 pictures are what I have to look forward to. I don't mean to rush fall, Summer is holding on. The weatherman says next week, cooler temperature's, maybe. Nevertheless, It is beautiful here in Virginia.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

A Pleasant Surprise...

This wonderful surprise arrived today. All bundled up so pretty. This is my Vintage Kitchen swap goodies from Jeannene of

WOW! Does this girl know me or what. I emailed her right away, even before I opened it to let her know it was here. She found the sweetest things, how did she know I would love.

I got an Apron (favorite), a kitchen clock (wow) an apple pie sign (see it on top?), two great big canisters (love it), a really cool mug (I will use for my green tea everyday), Champagne Marmalade (Yummo!) this 2008 calendar called "The Man Whisperer" (too funny, Dave is gonna love this one) which is "training tips women can use on their man"! (Ha, too funny), Mood magnets for the fridge, so I can state in a frame, what mood I'm in each day, (perfect) and a table cloth, which after chatting with Jeanene later, we decided since I didn't have a table in my eat in kitchen, the tablecloth would make a nice curtain for my sitting areas bay window. I feel totally spoiled, a good feeling I say. It is all so lovely Jeanene, Thank you dear friend, your an angel doll. How did you know just what I would love. Just like Mica with that light up ring, Perfect.
