Fall is Approaching

 Are you ready for fall? The cooler temperatures of a morning with it warming up in the afternoon. Are you ready for a trip to look at all of the pretty  fall colors?
It is my favorite time of the year to travel. We have some trees starting to turn and this is what I am hoping my trees look like this year in my back acre.
My grandsons wants a bon fire so they can have smores and hot dogs. They have a fire pit and Matt thinks they need to put some wood in it so it will be ready.

 This past weekend was rainy, cool, and if it wasn't raining then it was misting. Just not very good weekend to be out. I know I have caught a cold from getting wet one to many times. The voice is not very good from having to answer the phone all day and page who I needed at work.

The three Halloween tea towels will be listed in my etsy shop by the weekend. My pictures doesn't do them justice. They have a stripe border around the edge, it can be sage with a black stripe, blue, pumkin, red, just to name a few of the colors of the stripes.
If you have a special color, I would be more then happy to custom make you one or two. These are like the ones that was part of the bridal shower present.
It has been a very good stress reliever for me with my work load right now.
Keep your fingers, toes, legs crossed for me that we get to go south this next month on a mini vacation. I am need a few days away from work and everything else. We have a doctor appointment the 7th of October and if he says yes. We will head south to Branson on the 12th of October. We already have some shows that we want to see. My hubby has to see Ann Margaret who will be appearing with Andy Williams.
 I want to see the 12 Irish Tenors that I wanted to see the last time we were down there. I just hope if we get to go it doesn't rain all the time we are gone.
It is already down to 61 degrees this evening. I have been stopping by just can't always leave a comment like I want.
Have a great week.

So glad you had such a good time. Your tea towels are darling. You've been on my mind lately, but by the time I sit down at the computer I forget! Too much on my mind with the divorce case and criminal case..which they postponed! Grrr I want this over and done with so I can move on and have him completely out of my life.
Hoping you feel better soon.

Hi Shirley,
Oh I just love to visit you and read about all that you have been doing. Your creations are just darling and perfect for Fall.
I so hope you do get to go to Branson for a nice getaway. You so deserve to relax and destress.
I love the Irish tenors too. Their harmony is just beautiful.
Love those gorgeous trees. I wish we saw colors like that. Without the rain we really need the colors just don't arrive like they would if it were not so dry. But it is getting cooler and we are happy for that.

Hope your cold gets better and your are well for your trip. Safe travels and enjoy your time away.
Blessings always,
Celestina Marie XO

I hope you get to go on your trip Shirley and that you get to see your Irish Tenors! They are fabulous singers but I have only seen them on tv - even on television they were awfully good.
We are having beautiful fall weathere here; hot and sunny and the tomatoes are ripening finally! The leaves have started falling and it is wonderful to be outside. I hope your grandsons get their fire soon!
