What color is fall? I’m torn between orange and deep reds or rich browns.
I’m thrilled to be part of a great group of bloggers on Project Beautiful: Real Life - Real Living Facebook page(come over and join us!). This month I’m joining several of them in the Color Our World round up!
October is appropriately ORANGE.
We are entering what we call “no rest for the weary” weeks. Starting with Halloween there is something almost every weekend that keeps us busy or away from home! I have the 4 essentials on my list for the holidays that I will not sacrifice but I like to think and work ahead to maintain a spirit of peace and joy in our home. For me that means creating homemade gifts ahead of time and stashing them away in readiness for gift giving.
I think that ORANGE is the color that I associate most with fall. Pumpkins and beautiful trees that turn flaming orange are my favorite orange things of autumn. This year we had an amazing pumpkin plant that climbed the fence and hung it's fruit 4 feet in the air!!!
Having a plan for fun things I like to do helps me not get down in the winter months. One of my goals this winter is to learn to knit! Would you like to join in? Check out this giveaway for a great eBook for some simple handmade hats.
Monday was bad for me. Good Mondays come after Sundays where I get to prep for the week. Food prep, menus and writing my weekly plan all add up to be what makes a Monday good for me. I also like to get some extra reading time in if I can. Restful reading on the weekends makes my crazy weeks a little easier.
