Falling Into October

Greetings everyone! I'm still alive and kicking, much to some people's chagrin, I'm sure.

Early September we vacationed for the first time in Manasota Key, Florida. [photos here] We stayed for almost a week in an old, but nice, Condo on the Gulf of Mexico, the stay graciously donated by my husband's father. Hubby's family all live in that area, so, I anticipated it would be fun to hang out at the beach together, going shopping, share meals, etc., like we usually do. I thought not staying in their incredibility small home would be less stressful for my dear sister-in-law. This trip, however, SIL was a Royal Pain In The Patoody. By the time we left for home (two days early, by the way), I was suffering from a colon spasm from holding in anger and swore I'd never speak to her as a friend or sister again. I know, perhaps I'm over-reacting. I hope that's the case. I was still grieving from the loss of my little dogs and she was having unusually bad back pain but right now I'm still in broil mode.

But sometimes time does heal all wounds. We'll see.

On to something happier. I decorated for Fall today. The photos are below.

Enjoy. And thank you for listening.

There was a Scarecrow here too but
Jack and Sam, the Jack Russell Terrorists,
lived up to their names and proceeded to shred it
to itsy bitsy pieces. Good thing they're cute. [lol]

Enjoyed your Fla. pictures but sure hate it that it ended the way it did. Love your fall decorations too! You did a good job.

Sometimes walking out the back door and letting go of a LOUD Scream helps get it all out. LOVE the beach!

Sorry your trip wasn't as much fun as you had anticipated. I do like your flower decorations. Those are pretty!

So sorry about the trip.

Thanks for letting us see your colorful fall decorations. Those puppies!! (tearing up the scarecrow!) I especially love the gate décor. Have a good day.

Your decorations are lovely and will enjoy them from a distance. I'm too lazy and cheap to put up much of anything except a wreath at the driveway gate. LOL
