I have a lot of stuff going on recently. A lot of projects in the works, finishing up, or marinating in my mind space. Until the things on my “to do” list switch to my “to done list” and I can tell you about them, enjoy these recent photos of life.

Spoiled Ladies

The girls are handling the random changing of weather like pros, even if they are spoiled rotten with their heat lamp for the cold nights and fan for the hot days. They follow me when I go to the backyard to check on them, and sometimes it is a bit unsettling. I feel like they are plotting things against me, so I make sure to keep their food and water well stocked. That way I’m more of a necessity to their lives, and I can continue to steal their eggs.

Judging you

Jaydee is getting super cuddly as the weather gets cooler. He also let’s me know how important he is, when he needs to be fed, and how displeased he is when I give attention to other animals.

Fall colors have been exploding around here. I don’t remember the trees showing so many great colors for any amount of time in previous years before going bald for winter. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention in years past. Whatever it is, it’s pleasant and makes me hopeful for a good winter.

Possibly the best update is that Christmas decorations are going up. Nick and I are slowly growing our holiday collections of decorations, and this year it’s looking good. I’m trying to keep from stocking up on more lights and things, but it might be a losing battle.

I hope everyone has been having a great week so far and had an excellent start to the holidays during Thanksgiving.

Important Aspects of Autumn

Thanksgiving is creeping up, the weather is finally cooler, and I’m craving every food imaginable.

Now, beggars can’t be choosers, but I wish it was colder. I want frost every morning, possibility of snow during the holidays, and I want to be wearing scarves and boots everywhere! When I’m home, I want to turn the fireplace on, wear slippers, and bundle up in every blanket I own. Also, fireplace s’mores and hot chocolate – they are a must. One year, maybe Texas will have another epic winter like we did a few years ago. Until then, I will just sound super greedy with my wishes for Texas weather.

The house has a nice almost constant smell of pumpkin and cider. We found two candle scents that have been perfect and lasted longer than expected for how often we use them. Also, our Scentsy has been working overtime with the amazing mocha style scent we own.

Nick and I have started collecting some nice decorations since our first Thanksgiving as a married couple last year. This turkey being one of them. Excuse the slightly blurry photo!

The things I am most excited for right now? All the food that I will try to make and eat this season. We will be having a few Thanksgiving get togethers with friends and family. Both sides of the family have a dinner planned, and I’m excited to see everybody. Also, the Thanksgiving Day Parade. I’m a sucker for it.
