Celebrating Merry Monday!

I hope your all are having a grea
t Labor Day!

It's really a day of res
for me. My
weekend wa
s packed to the hilt with thing
s to do.

Friday bro
ught rain and colder weather our way

Then Saturday after spending a good share of the day trying to keep warm due to the wind and the chill in the air. I made a hasty exit to home where I spent the night helping out DS#5 and his son, our Mr. Wonderful. DDIL#1's mom made us all these bright orange hats and they we
re appre

Sunday was the baptismal celebra
tion for our little Lucky guy a
nd we received the good news that DDIL#5 was discharged from the hospital so she and our little Mr. Wonderful are now resting safely at home. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes for them!

So today I am resting.

Here is a picture we took of our Lucky guy and Mr. Wonderful on Saturday evening. One is 6 months old and the other 6 days old.

I've been thinking about changing out my closets so that may be something I'll do today. It's time to put away the really summery things and get some
things out for fall.

Fall means a return to treasured pieces we love
to wear. The refreshing break from the heat and cozying up in jeans and a sweater is some of what makes autumn the most-lov

One list I saw said the basics for a fall wardrobe include:

  • Fabrics such corduroy, suede, denim, velvet, cable knit, quilted fabrics, faux fur, wool

  • Colors that are popular for fall are cocoa hues, burgundy, forest green, merlot, aubergine, moss, midnight blue, and ivory

  • Pieces parts/ accessories include turtlenecks, long cardigan sweaters, jeans, pants, scarves and mittens, knee-high boots, long skirts, long-sleeve button-down shirts, blazer, vest, zippered hoodies, tunic, and belts

  • Neutral colors with jewel tone accessories are a favorite of mine. It seems that now I'm older I like something bright to wear. The list above shows many things that are in my wardrobe. But these days I'm down to being comfortable and most of what I wear is casual. Rarely do I have anything that I ever dress up for. I think for many of us the same is true. But it will be fun just wearing something different for a change.

  • I hope you all have a MERRY Monday!

  • 'On Ya'-ma

    I am so glad that the baby and Mum are reunited again and all is well. what a lovely photo of you and the two wee ones who would think there was 6 months between them ! what happened to the background colour at the end it changed somehow to a dark colour and was quite hard to read ?

    Nice photo's and good news. Great combo.
    Sherry wishes she coud change out her closet. hahahahahahahaha

    One of the draw backs she has faced and handled in having a four foot closet for all her hanging things.

    Fortunately we seldom hit COLD weather, WE RUN SOUTH!
