In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

COTTAGE WEATHER.....what happened to Fall??

This is what we woke up to this fine Saturday morning.
I would have put the cushions away if I really thought WINTER was coming. Living most of my life on the west coast I think Fall should last a bit longer.
Here in th Mid-West the Spring is short and the Fall is short.
I am not ready for Winter
Please just a few more weeks of Fall ... Pretty Please.

It is going to be a very, very, very, long Winter I think.
It is bad enough when you go shopping all the Christmas
decorations are out and when I asked for the Thanksgiving
table cloths and dishes they weren't out yet.
I know there is not a lot of money to be made at Thanksgiving but PLEASE...
My daughter works retail so I know why the companies do this
and times are tough with the slow economy but I don't do Halloween
not into all that scary stuff, so I like the Harvest type decorations.
I guess I will try the craft store I am sure they will have some things available.
( hope winter hasn't come to your neck of the woods)

Oh how sad to see your mums with snow! I am having trouble here in GA locating Fall and Thanksgiving decor - it's all Christmas here too. I'll have to start sooner next year. I hope you will have a nice weekend in spite of the weather.

I couldn't have put it better myself! I haven't enjoyed my porch in almost 2 weeks. Rain and colder temps have dominated our region and I don't know if we'll see any more warm weather. Last year it lasted till the second week of November. I've found fall and Thanksgiving decor in the small shops and craft tents at county festivals. Try there.
