It's a James Whitcomb Riley kind of day...

This is what Fall should look like...wouldn't it be wonderful to have a sunny place to relax, read, and watch the squirrels?

I hate this phrase, but the 'frost is on the pumpkin' here this morning. That means more blankets have been pulled out, and wool socks are being worn indoors. We're seeing how long we can hold off turning the heat on. It's supposed to warm up towards the end of the week, so maybe it won't be so bad. Hope my BUNCO pals dress warmly...

I mentioned working 9 days in a row in my last post--believe me, this was not my doing. It's just how our work schedule fell to accommodate people on vacation. I'm definitely feeling this long haul.

We're having a carry-in at work today...all kinds of Halloween-y/Harvesty treats for lunch. Here's what I've made. I'm bringing in a few decorations and a table cover, with every one's input, it should be a festive occasion. My camera battery is charged, so I'll take some pictures to post later---way later, after class this evening.

That's a great picture!

Oh...it must be getting chilly there and nearly time to turn on the heat. We keep our thermostat on 62...plenty chilly. Hoping that the oil prices drop even more and then we'll stock up, but I doubt that the thermostat is going back to its former setting at 70.

I love what you made for your work party!
I'm with you on the front porch setting except I don't want to watch squirrels. We have way too many here. Nasty little things chew up pumpkins so badly that I don't even set real ones out any more.

I'd like to jump into that Fall picture and be warmed up by the lovely sunshine. It seems like we don't get too many days like that. Today it's bone chillingly cold with the rain! And like you, we've gotten out more blankets and warmer socks to stay warm inside! I so dislike being cold!
