Fall Visitor

Today, it actually felt like a Fall day as I potted this beautiful Mum.


I’m going to try keep it alive inside.  I have it sitting in front of a south window, so it should be 8-10 hours of filtered sunlight and if I keep it watered and don’t let it get to hot or cold it should survive.   Time will tell.

After I brought the Mum indoors I found a visitor, who rode in on it.  I turned around, taking the plant back outside to let him fly away and fortunately the little feller flew outside as the back door was opened.


As the day progressed I noticed a glare coming through the south window.


A new roof is being put on the house behind us.  It is a metal roof and at certain times of the day there is a glare from the sunshine coming from it and it is blinding when sitting on the couch in my living room.


So I went to my fabric stash and found some material that will cut down on the glare but is thin enough to let the sunlight in. I used thread that coordinates with the curtains I already had hanging in the window.


It’s a simple curtain but it takes care of the glare and making a curtain was easier than moving the furniture.



PS:  Go to my Avon Estore and check out the great deals for the holidays!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
