~ Colors of Fall ~



I am sooooo ready for fall!  My house is getting ready too.  Here are just a few things I'm in the process of adding and changing a few others.  I have to have color ~ lots of it!  Makes me happy and easier to be with.  ;-)

We had strong thunderstorms Saturday evening.  We desperately need the rain, however, it rained inside the windows of my extra room!  Seems it's a structural problem and the office is sending over contractors.  Last night, it was "raining" in my bathroom.  Well, not really raining but water was leaking from the ceiling.  It appears as though that is where the a/c system is located so someone will be over today to repair that.  If you've been around awhile, you will probably remember the leak in my bedroom closet earlier this  year.  Perhaps I'm doomed to water problems???  :)   The temp after the rain?  An amazing 68' F!  Yesterday morning and this morning it was in the low 70's.  Really a relief from the triple digits and high humidity we've been having.  Come on, October!   I can't wait ~

Hope you have a wonder*filled week!   I need to get busy ~

~ Julia Child's 100th Birthday Celebration ~


For those in the DFW area...it's on tomorrow night, Wed, 15th on KERA.  Others might find it scheduled on the local PBS TV stations.

Loved Julia ~ she was so real and very funny!  Happy Birthday wonderful lady.

~ How do you like me now? ~

I changed this table earlier in the spring but forgot to share. It's an old wicker table that has certainly seen better days!  A coat of spray paint makes a huge, positive difference though. 


Really, really faded ~ right?


I decided to use Rustoleum's Grape in a glossy finish. I like this brand of paint much better than Krylon.  It just goes on so smooth and evenly I think...and better coverage too.





I think it looks very "happy" in this color and will be a great addition to the oranges, etc., for Halloween decor.  Yes, I'm in a fall state of mind ~ just cannot wait!  Will be 106' here today ~ do you blame me?  :-)

~ Sugar Content in Food & Drinks ~


What A SUGARUnique Way
To Present This…
4.2 grams = 1 teaspoon of sugar = 1 cube !
Someone ought to get an award for this. We know the facts, but this
brings it into perspective quickly, doesn’t it?
Each cube is a teaspoonful.





















 














Now someone needs to do this with salt!

My apologies for the pictures not being aligned....computer acting up and I just couldn't hang ~
