My current hang out ...

The days just seem to be going by faster and faster. I'm incredibly busy and yet I feel like I'm accomplishing very little. My alarm goes off a few minutes earlier each morning and I slip between the sheets later each evening.

One of the culprits is our new puppy. He can't be left alone for,well, any amount of time unless of course we'd like a room rearranged or new creative carvings in our furniture. I've been spending a lot of my time on our front porch or the back patio. It's amazing what can be done to pass the time while the "boys" are playing in the yard. I've caught up on all my magazines, read a book and even wrote a few notes to friends and family. Please note that none of this was on my to-do list and nothing of real importance was checked off during this time.

In my so called spare time I'm finishing up the decor, projects and recipes for our upcoming Oktoberfest. This is truly a labor of love. All our hard work will be worth it as we are enjoying a wonderful evening together.

As if I don't have enough to keep me busy, I'm having a tag sale this Saturday. Insane you say? Yes, I know.We've been putting items in our basement for over a year now that we don't need/want/use. The small area we allotted has taken over half of our living space and is threatening to grow even larger. Enough! It's going to be a beautiful weekend so out it goes and it WILL NOT see the insides of our home again. What is left will be whisked off to charity.

What are you all up to these days?

Hi Jo,

What a special little place to hang out with your cute doggies.
Love the cane chair, table and your Fall decorations.
Hope that you are having a good week and much luck with the yard sale.
We need to do the same, have too much stuff that we no longer need.

Hugs
Carolyn

So nice to hear from you Jo! I understand busy days.

I've been doing some work for my old office (still haven't heard from the teaching job,errr)! But trying to keep myself occupied.

NWH and I are headed to our college's homecoming this weekend so we're excited about that! Just think.. this is the slow time compared to Nov and Dec!! Happy Friday ;)

What a beautiful setting. Organizing is what I am up to. I think its time to do a major purge.

Kathy said...

I owe you an email! It's been a crazy week--you'll hear from me soon. Wish I could join you as you watch "the boys" romp around the yard. :)

Good luck with the Tag sale!

What a great spot to hang out! I can relate to wanting to stay under the covers - I keep hitting the snooze button each morning. Really pushing it to get out of the house on time. Best of luck on your Oktoberfest - can't wait to see photos recapping the event!

Sue said...

I'd enjoy hanging out there, Jo. Looks comfy to me... Life is crazy here at home, too. I'm on my way to Florida tomorrow and when I get back home, the hubs and I will be at the furniture market in North Carolina. It's fun but work, too! Busy busy...
Okay, now I'm off to finish packing and cleaning- I hate coming home to a dirty house. Plus, if the family has to come in if I croak while away, I don't want them to think I was a total slob. LOL
Take care of yourself and that little pup.

I'm loving the cooler weather but I do relate to my days flying by. I have so much to do and no matter how much I work I always have more the next day.

Can you believe that in 11 weeks Christmas will be here?

Of course, I have not even begun to put out any fall decor. I must! I must! I must!
