Fall is here

Hello everyone and welcome new followers.
Sorry about the time between posts.Things are finally starting to get back to normal. Fall arrived earlier this week - we had frost a few mornings.But then we had summer come back with the high heat and humidity for a few days. Today was back to more comfortable weather.

Our hummingbirds have left. The bluejays are back. The leaves are starting to change color... and some of them are already falling. The birds have been flying into the mountain ash trees to gobble up the frosted berries. This year we have lots of crab apples. The turkeys have returned. It won't be long before we get to see them fly up in the tree to shake the crab apples to the ground. The deer have already been around our apple trees and the wild apple trees.

Our flooring arrived - but it wasn't what we ordered. Somehow the truck got loaded with the wrong item. We finally got the correct flooring yesterday. Today I spent finishing all the touch-ups on the ceiling molding. Tomorrow my Dad will come over to help with the hardwood flooring.

Last week, I turned on our oven to make dinner and smelled the propane additive. The valve had a slow leak that had been there for some time. Since it was an older stove that had already been repaired for the same problem in the past, we decided to replace the stove. Since we have a grill it wasn't that much of an inconvenience to wait the week for the delivery truck to arrive.

I haven't had much spare time-  but I did manage to dig a project out of my finishing basket .Since it seemed to large for an ornament, I turned it into a stitcher wallet.
