a little rain...


It rained a little here yesterday.  Not as much as I'd hoped it would, but just enough to give everything a good soaking and keep the skies cloudy, dark and fallish looking all day.  After a long dry summer it was wonderful...

I spent the morning doing a bit of cleaning that I'd been neglecting and tweaking the pumpkin festival that my grandson had going on in my houseplants.  He will be coming over after school today so I'll let you know how successful my sneaky switcheroo was.

It feels so good to be nesting again.  I have been in a bit of a decorating funk which for me translates into not a whole lot of real cleaning going on as well.  I took a quick trip with a couple of girlfriends last weekend that provided just the inspiration and rejuvenation I needed.

These pictures are from my getaway.  They were taken at the Apple Farm in San Louis Obispo, CA.  It was our first stop on the way up the coast to the beautiful beach town of Cambria. 

I have more pictures and stories to share with you but for now I just wanted to thank my travelling buddies, Elaine and Shelly for listening and talking and eating and talking some more.  It was just what the doctor ordered.  Can't wait to climb into the car again with you ladies.

Have a wonderful Thursday.

xo, Patty


  1. Like all. Very thanksgiving look.

  2. Girlfriend time is the best! I hear you about the cleaning....I am on vacation and need to deep clean BUT the weather is gorgeous, so I would rather sit on the porch, and take time to cook somethings I don't get a chance to.
    Enjoy your time away from cleaning we deserve it!

  3. Glad you all had a wonderful time. I haven't taken a girls trip in years. You've inspired me.
