Fall At Woodhaven

I do not think I remember the leaves being so spectacular. The view from every window in this home is a master piece. Every drive down the country roads is a blessing to my eyes.

I enjoyed my family so much last week and this week has been full and yet I do not feel as though I have accomplished much. Dental appointment, tidying home, Callie's stitches removed, appliance repaired, gutters cleaned, emails that make me smile about my granddaughter's interview's in New York.

A lot going on in this family.

My son will visit in a few days, another daughter will arrive and I will take her to a birthday lunch and a dreaded hair appointment tomorrow.

I have chopped and chopped on my hair and the color is like that of a dead mouse.
So, maybe I will leave looking a little better then when I arrived. Just do not want to leave my country home for this appointment.

My little granddaughters are excited about Halloween. I cannot imagine that these feminine little girls want to be a skeleton and a bat!!

Wherever you are - enjoy this Fall time of the year and hopefully when the time is set back this weekend it will not affect you like it will me.

Instead of getting up at 5:00 am - it will probably be 4:00 and instead of going to bed at 8:00 and meditating it will be 7:00. Some hours - guess since there is just One Woman residing here it really does not matter. Just do not like the long hours of dark - but Spring is around the corner.

Callie has discovered the deer. She chases them away from the house. I have enjoyed having them close but with thoughts of a small garden next Spring - maybe this is good.

Yes, the time really makes me crazy and tired. My dog gets me up based on the light in the window, so it will be an hour earlier. Ugh!
The picture of the girls is so cute...the oldest one looks like least I think so. I know you will have fun with your family...

sky, I am a early morning person.
If it is not done by noon - forget it. Beverly, thanks for commenting.
Both of you have a great day.
Wish my local rainy weather would end.

I also am up 6:00 not 5:00 during these dark and shorter days. I had forgotten about the time change! I also try to get it done by noon, whatever it is. Glad your fall is as lovely as it is here.
