Hello. Did ya miss me? Shhhh. I’m whispering, ’cause it’s really late here, and I’m sneaking my sins from the day into the house.
I’ve been off for an overnight visit to TheFirstChild and SweetiePie. I barely saw TheFirstChild — he’s been working so hard studying and it’s a big test week, so he was very busy. SweetiePie and I, on the other hand, got into a bit of trouble.
We had a great time shopping — a few quilt shops, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, etc — all the fun shops we don’t have here. We were well behaved except for the quilt shops. Well, SweetiePie was well behaved everywhere, but I behaved shamelessly. You can see, I had to have a bit of Authentic and Amy Butler’s Love. And SweetiePie’s probably laughing as she reads this ’cause she knows that’s not all. The rest is in the witness protection program for a little while longer.
After all of our shopping, we had to try out a little cupcake shop. Mmmmmm – Mmmm. The cupcakes were yummy. We each had a “Bridal Cupcake” (almond flavored) and sat out in the glorious sun for awhile and played with the camera. The weather was purrrrr-fect. SweetiePie helped me out with a Wilson pose.
It was a super fun day and I miss my little angels already. I can’t wait until we can do it again!
Did you notice the hint of golden leaves in that first dark picture? I honestly can’t remember when we’ve had a more beautiful autumn. In our yard, we’re usually lucky to have one or two really pretty trees, but this year, half of them are this beautiful shade of yellow.
The annual leaf pick-up war started this past weekend, but this year’s show almost makes it all worth it. (I say almost, ’cause I’m sure there will be grumbling when those trees are naked.) I’ll be so sorry when all the leaves are gone.
Oooh, and look at these funny maple leaves. I’m thinking maybe we have a fungus of some sort? They seem to be confined to just one tree. I just checked — according to google (don’t you LOVE the internet?), they’re called galls and shouldn’t result in any harm to the tree.
Here’s the view out our back windows. When the sun is out, the inside of the house is just luminous. It’s soooo pretty – I can’t wait to see it again tomorrow! We’re so lucky this year — it’s just amazing!
Ok — off to bed now. For those of you in the northern hemisphere, I hope your leaves are just as beautiful as ours are this year. And remember…what happens in Indy, stays in Indy!
