Don't Hide. It's Only Falling Leaves.

I'm not sure if Toeshee is pretending to be a mechanic or if he's looking for a toy. He certainly keeps himself busy. He's still pretty naughty. Cody keeps trying to run outside to get away from him. He makes it out unsupervised when my husband opens the door. Usually I don't find out about it until later. Then I hurry to go look for him only to find him on the porch sleeping or napping in the plants in the garden. Whew!

Today is the first day of Autumn. It's usually a very short season here. Right after the leaves are finished turning color and many have fallen we will get freezing cold temperatures and often a dusting of the white stuff that I will not name. I like Fall when it's warm and mellow and golden. We are supposed to stay fairly warm this week so that will be wonderful.

We are going through our first head cold of the season here. First my daughter had it and now my husband. I'm the nurse. :) If I catch it I will just go to bed and not want to be bothered. (which is a good thing because neither of them know where anything is as far as medicine and such) ;)

I have been a bit off kilter lately with my blogging, but I hope to get back to it. I have been feeling a bit down. I'm hoping it will pass. I just don't want to be depressing while blogging. That's no fun.

I'll be sure to visit soon! Hugs!

You are so lucky to experience the leaves changing colors for fall! We do not have that where I live.

The leaves are not changing here in TX quite yet, but soon. Hope you are feeling ok. My mom has had a head cold all weekend. But, my mom is back home with me now and that is the best I can ask for!
Hope all your kitties are "trying" to get along better!

It's still pretty green in SC and it was a pleasant 80 degrees today. I have been taking care of my mom lately because her back has been hurting and it's been tough at work. However, I told her she better plan a good birthday for me on Thursday.

Ahhh poor puss. Fluffy has taken over Scooter's enormous fluffy car bed too. Scoot is still hanging out under the garden bench hoping for some sun.

I don't mind cooler weather so long as it's bright, which it has been, here, for a week or so now. We've been treated to warm sunny days lately and lovely blue skies. SOOOOOOO frustrating that my bad back has stopped me going out and enjoying it!

I love the colours of autumn leaves. Can't say I've noticed many so far- a few fluttering down but other than that, still all green.

I usually find it all suddenly goes and I say, "When did THAT happen????" cos it takes me by surprise every year.

Never mind. There is a nice part of losing the leaves: finding out where all the secret bird nests were! As the trees become skeletal, you start to be able to spot the nests, and go "Ahhh! So THAT'S where they were!"


BTW my other half has brought home a head cold from school already. Grrr.... I thought I had caught it last week, but it looks like I managed to give it back to him. Teaching at junior school, whatever bug is going round comes home!!!
