Moving Around the Yard Slowly

I've been preoccupied with yard cleanup after DH moved two buildings to the back yard.  He is organizing everything in his buildings and garage.  I'm proud of all he is doing but it is "Man's World," and I'm finished with it! LOL!

 I hurt my foot so I moved around the yard slowly yesterday. Sardis watched me and wanted to come outside so bad.  I couldn't hold the camera and him and hobble along all at the same time.


The camellias in the front yard are just beautiful in the fall. 


No freeze yet!


The back yard is decked out still for summer, but it is too cool now.


Quietly and slowly the weather changes.


My flower bed will go to sleep soon.


And all the time sweet Sardis is waiting at the door to walk with me.  I have to rest a while and get off my foot.  I'm afraid winter will get here before I am well enough to take long walks again.  Wait on me, dear November.


Goof!  (The photographer can be seen in the reflection in the glass.)

Love,

Update

Ok, so I obviously have problems where computers are involved :-)


My computer is down so I'm using my husband's computer which is "different" than mine.  So I'm slowing down on posting until I get his figured out!  Here are the news!

BIG PROJECT!  For the last few weeks we have been tearing down a shed and adding two utility buildings. It has been a total reorganization out in the back yard.  I have loads of pictures, not pretty, but much about the transformation.  I'll post about the big project after my computer is fixed.

FOUND A GREAT BLOG about home restoration called Manhattan Nest.  I enjoyed the writing and projects so much that I spent "hours" reading about projects!

LIFE'S LESSON - I have a wonderful neighbor who is 94 years old and one of the most positive people I know!  She is going in the hospital on Tuesday for a serious operation.  So what does she do before she goes in the hospital?  Why, go to the mountains to see waterfalls! 

Reminded me of the saying, "When times get tough, the tough go on vacation!"

UPDATE My neighbor is recovering at home and doing great!  Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers.

Have a great week ahead!

Adding a Little Red

I'm always inspired when I read your blogs!  I was reading Brenda's blog, Cozy Little House, and I am always inspired by her use of the color red and her decorating skill in general.  Her home looks happy! 

 Before

 This is the plant on my kitchen counter in its beige plastic pot.  I set it there for the light and to hide all the cables and wires to our little TV and microwave.  Well, I just couldn't get the color in the rooms out of my mind all day long, so I went shopping for something red for my kitchen.
 
 After

And there it is!  Just a little red made all the difference!  Now what else can I change out?

DH's birthday is Monday!  I'm looking forward to a slice of his favorite carrot cake.

Best wishes,
Lottie
