  5. Monday Musings, October 22
Artichokes make a lovely fall centerpiece.

Happy Monday my friends…

October is winding down…in fact, in 4 weeks it will be Thanksgiving week! YIKES!

We had overlapping visits from our daughter (and her new bunny) and our sister-in-law this weekend.

(p.s….anyone have any good tips for litter training bunnies? We are all ears…get it?!)

We celebrated a major achievement with our daughter (she is being inducted into Phi Beta Kappa), celebrated a couple birthdays and enjoyed some lovely meals with both of them. And then today, my SIL, Terry and I will be spectators as my parents compete in the Senior Olympics…their two sports are Water Volleyball and Balloon Drop! It's big time, I'm telling ya!

And Winter arrived this weekend too! I'm not even sure Summer was out the door, Fall had just arrived and BAM…here comes Winter all blustery and taking charge. I, for one, am not complaining! Bring on all the sweaters!

Some of these links may be affiliate links and I may earn a small commission off of the sale of these products, but the price you are charged is not affected. You can see my full disclosure policy here.

It's not too early to start your Thanksgiving preparations. I need to get some Turkey legs for this stock.

What I found on the Internet:

A Little Internet Window Shopping:

What I'm reading:

I'm just about done with Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult and I'm really not sure how it is going to end! She has woven so many stories into this one book…from Hollywood Stardom to impoverished American Indian society to Archaeology…with a dose of spousal and child abuse.

So…there you have it…musings on a chilly Monday.  I hope your week is great my friend.

Thanks again for spending a few minutes of your busy day with me today.

    Sounds like fun times! We used to have a bunny, but cannot for the life of me remember how we went about the litter training! I am with you on the sweater weather. It has been crisp and cool here in the ‘North’ and I would be lying if I didn’t admit to hoping for some early snow!!

      Oh rats! Desperate for bunny training tips! And bring on the sweaters!!! I know you are way ahead of us…I’m ready to light the fireplace! But that would be a little overkill right now.

      Many hugs…Lynn

    Well if I had to pick one thing I didn’t like about me growing up it was probably my hair because I was always getting a new hairstyle almost monthly. My mom was a hairdresser and I was always wanting a new hairdo. Now days I just go mostly curly and call it good. Yes it’s natural…

    Get or make that wreath – it’s beautiful!! I’m a huge fan of dried flowers and hope to one day grow enough flowers so I can start making dried wreaths again.

    Training a bunny – well I’ve heard it’s possible but it never worked for us because at the time the kids were little and I was tired…. The bunny was a dwarf, super cute but also super stinky…

    Glad I clicked over this morning always enjoy visiting your blog. It was a difficult weekend and now that our sunshine has returned I’m thinking most of my week will be spend outdoors. Our temps are in the 60’s which is my favorite for this time of year. See you on Instagram!

      So funny how we grow into and start to appreciate those things that bother us when we were younger. The wisdom of age.

      And that wreath! I’m tempted to try to make one…I’ll keep you posted.

      And yup…not sure about the whole house training thing. Luckily, he doesn’t live at home with us…just visits. But man…a pooping machine!

      And I just popped over…had a sinking feeling when you referenced your ‘difficult weekend’. I am truly sorry my friend. I am keeping you both in my thoughts.

      Hugs, Lynn

      Aw, thanks so much Meg! That means so much that you took the time to tell me that!

      I do love what I do, but messages like yours are fuel in my tank!

      I hope your week is going well.

      Hugs, Lynn
