I  looked at the calendar today and realized that there is just one more week of October.  Really?  Where did that time go?  Each day seems to just rush by.  I open my eyes to a lovely new day chock full of possibilities and close my eyes thinking, "Where did the day go?  I got nothing done."

It has gotten much colder here.  We have the heat on and I even got a fire going.  I think the warm temperatures are now gone until next year.

I have tried to get some more fall things out and I will have more to show you this coming week.  But here's what I have for you today.

I cleaned up the stove, put out some sunflowers, and lit my Hot Apple Pie candle.
 The pumpkin slate now has a jack-o-lantern face.

I had a pumpkin muffin for breakfast.  It was the first one I've had this year and it was so good.
 I got some more cleaning done.  Still a lot to do, but at least I am making progress.

Joe bought me some Halloween candy.  So sweet of him.  He got me all my favorites:  Reese's peanut butter cups, Peeps and candy corn.  The peanut butter cups are in the freezer.  It's best to eat them frozen.  At least I think so.

It was a beautiful sunset tonight after a morning of rain and a sunny afternoon.

My back was hurting so I took some pain medication the doctor prescribed and now I am falling asleep.  At least almost all of the pain went away.  So I will end for now.  Hope you all have a great night.  I will see you tomorrow with lots of great pictures of decorations for you.
