A Fall Door

I have been south for a couple of weeks doing 'parental maintenance' and will be back north early next week.  Then, in about six weeks, we will be south again for the winter!  ( head constantly spins).  

While I'm here, I've been doing some 'readying' of the house for fall, so that when we do get back, it's one less chore I'll have to tackle!

The door arrangement was simple!  Just yank the spring arrangement out of the door pocket and plop the HL flowers in!  Took all of about five minutes!  I had some stuff (e.g., the trailing vine and leaves) left over from my fall stash.  Couldn't have been easier.  

As I look around the house, I have now determined that 'less is more,' so much of the fall stuff will be put back up.  Too much of it is already making me nervous, and I just can't handle the 'cluttery' aspect!  Wonder if I'll have that same attitude come Christmas?  Hmmm....

Those of you in the midwest ENJOY the fall temps!  It's still broiling down here, and I just can't wait to get back!

Midnight, the Magical Cat   1996 - 2013

On a sadder note, we lost Midnight, one of my assistants, two weeks ago.  He had stopped eating and simply crawled into a hiding place to fade away.  We did, however, locate him, and he is now resting under the new lilac tree in the back of the property in Wisconsin.  We love you, Midnight, and miss you terribly.


  1. Nancy, I'm sad to hear about Midnight. My heart goes out to you.
    Yes, it is still hot here in TX, but not the heat of summer. Still not the nice chill of fall, but 80s and 90s are OK with me for now. I'm doing less this season too. Actually haven't done a thing as yet, but I know it will be minimal. '-)

  2. Chuck and I will be making a donation in Midnight's memory to the local animal shelter.

    I do agree with you about the seasonal decorations: yes, no, some?

  3. Your door decor looks great, Nancy. I bet you will be glad to be back to our cooler temps. It got down into the low 30's here night before last. It feels kinda good after this crazy heat. Once again- I am so sorry about your Midnight- xo Diana

  4. Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear about your Midnight. It's odd that it's the third black cat I've learned has passed away via blogs the past couple of months. It's always hard to lose one of our fur babies. I have a black cat myself named Speck.

    Omigosh, where does NanaDiana live ? We're still near 100 here just west of San Antonio, but thankfully it's getting into the lower 90's now. Hope it stays that way, with temps going down and not up again. I can barely think of fall decorating, but the blogs are giving me some incentive !

  5. Hi Nancy, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
