Goodbye October... Hello November!

 Welcome friends! Happy last week of October. Can you believe it? One of my favorite months is almost gone in what felt like a flash! We got rain!  No small statement for California. And, although there were some minor issues with the heavy "Cyclonic Bomb" or "Atmospheric River" of rain, most everyone I know is just as thrilled and hopeful as I that we are getting some relief.  Thank you all for your well wishes for us.  Here's praying for more, normal and regular rain for the Season and, just possibly, our drought.  The rain gave me plenty of time to enjoy baking and decorating. It was a good month. I hope yours was too. 

Onwards and upwards to the Thursday Favorite Things party for this beautiful week.  Wishing you all a safe and healthy September 1st and Halloween, if you have little ones.

Rain, Pumpkins and a Whole Lot of Beauty! (TFT Link Party)

October 21st already, friends, and we HAVE RAIN in Northern California!!  Soon all of California with the systems through this weekend! They are saying that these are, OFFICIALLY, ending our very long, large, devastating, and costly fire Season.  All I can say and do is Praise the Lord! Thank you to all of you who have prayed along with me for those tragic fires to end. Though this won't take us out of the drought, it's a darn good start in the right direction!

Can you see me? I LOVE to dance in the rain! 

Alright with that piece of good news conveyed, I can move on to welcoming you to this week's Thursday Favorite Things Party! And, I do welcome you and thank you for joining me each week.

Magical October

 Welcome friends! Happy Thursday. How are you enjoying October? "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers"-from Anne of Green Gables author, Lucy Maud Montgomery I couldn't agree more.  I'm so enjoying the crisp morning air. I hope you're all enjoying the beginnings of Autumn as well. 

Quickly, Theresa, get on with the party! Okay, here we go. Link up, enjoy, visit, inspire or get inspired! 

Just Look at Emily from Le Cultivateur's Magical Fall Evening Table Isn't it just dreamy?!

October Celebrated! (TFT Party)

 Good morning, friends, and welcome back! I can happily say that today was our first, here in Northern California, real Fall-feeling day! Thank God! It was actually chilly this morning! Yay! And, although there's only a slight chance, there's a chance just the same, for some potential light showers one morning in the forecast. Squealing with excitement. It's not just that I love the rain, (even though I really do!) but the drought conditions and fires here have been so bad that were on rationing again...which I don't mind, but what a glorious relief it could be for our poor, overworked firefighters, not to mention our farmers, many who have had to sell off livestock and change their entire lives. So, without going too much further into that, rain in the forecast! Double Yay!
