Hi everyone! How is your week so far? Here at the beach we're having a delightfully stormy day, as the last tattered remnants of Hurricane Pamela slog through our region. I find it amazing that a storm can make its way all the way here to the US east coast, from far far away Puerta Vallarta ,Mexico! Hard to even imagine. [hurricanes here usually arrive from the Atlantic, coming up the coast from the south.]
Of course I don't want rainy days every day, but now and then is pretty good, I think. Usually I d spend the day working on projects or quilts but today was designated Fall Cleaning Day, and I just wanted to get it done, however futile it may seem as leaves tracked in all day along with wet disgruntled doggy.
It's wet and windy but since Pamela was a tropical storm, the air is rather warm, and soft, almost balmy. Winds SSE at 30 mph. A few minutes ago, the back door, the deck door, blew open, scared me and Mo! "A ghost, mommy!"
Mo is getting used to his raincoat. Yes, he can be bribed.
More pics from our walks this week...

Mo's nemeses, his bitter foes! Fence creatures!

Wonderfully spooky moon!
Yesterday was crisp and was the first day I was able to wear my thrifted tweed jacket. I layered it over a black tee shirt and my mustard ''boyfriend'' cardi from Target. Wore khaki cargoes, added an embroidered linen scarf in tan/ natural and a vintage necklace: brass oak leaves and acorns, with a few glass acorns. I was so pleased. This is the first time in ages---years?---that I've put on an outfit and felt it looked really great. It made me happy, even if I did look a bit like my mom.
One of my stops was Home Goods. They still, or again, have many glass and mercury glass pumpkins, if you're wanting one. Very inexpensive.
See you soon! Be sure to stop by on Halloween, for a peek at a Halloween quilt or two and to see Mo in his costume.
gone to the beach....
PS The Gooses, parents only! are now dressed up in---ah, um..FOOTBALL dresses.?!? Hahahaha.
Oh and baseball--Mets? or KC? Mel? Anyone? I'm a Yankees fan, but I'll root for the Mets, usually the kiss of death,lol.
hmmm. 10 PM This just flashed up on all my devices. I never know what the heck I'm supposed to do. Go out and take a look? Maybe? Stay home? Fine.
