Autumn is just around the corner!

What are you doing special to welcome Autumn?  I have a big pumpkin and three little ones by my back door and mums all around.  I just love this time of year…well in about two-three weeks.  It’s still scorching hot here most of the day so as soon as it cools off we will be ready to make a pot of chili and bake something with pumpkin!  I am working on my Autumn newsletter and trying to keep up around here.  With both girls in college and it just Ben and I most of the time you would think I had time to spare.  Not the case!  But all the outside work will slow down and as the days get shorter and night comes sooner, we will all change gears.

We had a great weekend.  Yesterday Jerry made pulled pork and we had Jessica and her husband and our friends the Michelles over to eat pulled pork sandwiches and eat Blue Bell ice cream for dessert.  Sometimes, I just can’t figure out what to make that everyone likes for a sweet and Blue Bell is always good!  They have this new flavor Caramel Kettle Crunch. OMG a tasty combination of creamy vanilla ice cream with crunchy caramel-coated popcorn and a smooth caramel sauce. So good!  If you don’t have Blue Bell ice cream where you live, I am sorry to tempt you…but it is the best ice cream I have ever eaten.

I will be out of town a couple of days this week but I am trying to get my posts ready ahead of time.  I hope to make a pretty great announcement  this week pertaining to the next amazing interview and giveaway I have lined up. It will knock your socks off!  So stay tuned!

At the risk of repeating myself, I LOVE Autumn~the colors, the foods, the weather…but I also love the clothes of Autumn and one thing in particular that I look forward to is getting out of sandals and flip flops and into a  pair of my favorite socks.   Are you getting the hint here????

Anywhoodle, stay tuned…as soon as some lose ends are tied up I will give you all the details!

Something tells me that you like Autumn and socks! And the big announcement is about socks, right?

😉 heehee

Have a wonderful time away Susan! I love socks and autumn too, and that ice cream sounds fabulous!!


Autumn is my favorite season and while it officially arrives this Thursday I don’t think our climate is going to cooperate. It’s still very hot here as well and I am ready for cool and crisp weather, changing leaves and pumpkin pie. Some cozy warm socks would be nice too.
