Just another ordinary day around here …. MUSICA
Those shirts are bowing deeply! You can see our leaves really haven’t changed too much on those trees. I just wanted to say Hello this morning …. I think we should give the drawing a couple more days … so everyone has a chance to enter. ♥ I’ll get Vanna to do her magic on Monday Morning!
We’ve been busy this week …. Tomorrow my girlfriend Jaime is getting married! I have to sing, along with Jaime and our other BFF, Martha, a song, after dinner, to the groom! I am not a public singer, but this is what Jaime wants, so I’m doing it, which means I’ve been at Martha’s practicing! The song is I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight! Close your eyes, shut the door, you don’t have to worry, anymore . . . Martha and I are the back-up singers! This ➚ is Jaime’s wedding invitation, she asked me to take pictures, which I will love to do, because this is going to be one beautiful wedding . . . and I’ll see if there are any she might let me share with you. 🙂
Then, next Wednesday, four girlfriends come from California and fill up our guest rooms! So I’m having fun making it cute around here. So far, we only have a tinge of orange running along the treetops to give us a hint of what’s coming. But tonight, things might be changing.
The leaves in our kitchen are in full color! Pretty soon the big maple tree in the backyard will have just this same color. I’ve been calling around this week, trying to find a Honey Crisp Apple Tree on the island, we want to plant one in our garden.
While I’ve been spreading watercolors on our book and writing with my black ink pen, Joe hung the dried corn on the door and washed the porch ….
To decorate it with all the farm stand stuff we brought home from the trip — we’ve been walking in the windy woods too; there is a real chill in the air, the clean smell of the ocean, but the sky is clear blue and the sun is warm . . .
It’s beginning to feel a LOT like fall on Martha’s Vineyard! But the scary thing is that we have a hard frost warning for tonight . . . so this evening we have to throw old sheets over the mums and zinnias still blooming in the garden, to keep them from turning black, so they’ll still be pretty when the girls come–it’s a long time until Halloween! We aren’t ready to give up the garden yet!
I put a wreath on the door and Joe brought out the ladder to get the small pumpkins on the door ledge …. doing our part to cuten up the neighborhood.
And here’s the person who does his part to cuten up our house … it’s your Hello Kitty photo for the day … Jack, this time last year . . . He is just as cute now, but smarter and even more precious if this is possible.
When I went to the grocery store yesterday I picked up some big fat pork chops, which made me think of you …. thought you might like to do what we’re doing this weekend and make this defraptious recipe that’s perfect for this time of year — your family will melt all over the floor for the love of you for making it. Apples and sweet potatoes, raisins, cinnamon and stuffed pork chops? All baked in one pan? Who could ask for anything more! The sweet simple things of life!
Bye for now girls, have a WONDERFUL weekend. Don’t forget, if you don’t know yet, we have a wonderful giveaway going on here (scroll down to next post if you haven’t seen it) — you can leave as many comments as you want because Vanna knows to only count each one once …. so feel free! Let us know what you’re up to! ♥ I just called to say I love you! xoxo
