Whoa Nellie have I been busy!!!!

I don't know about you but Fall is quite the busy season for me and this year is even busier.....watching the debates and all the election info plus all those "robo calls"!  I've been dealing with financial, retirement, physician, legal and all sorts of other issues this month when all I really want to do is ENJOY this gorgeous time of year and maybe get a few outdoor projects done! LOL!
I got my flu shot and "the girl's" got their annual shots plus their nails clipped and an allergy shot for Nitty.
They slept quite a bit yesterday when they got home but today they were "up and at 'em".....they have to keep a close eye on those sneaky squirrels!
The flowers are doing better than they have all Summer!
I finally managed to get some Halloween and Fall decorations up outside.....
The school bus goes right by my house so I always like to have the decorations up outside for the kids to enjoy.  In fact they know my girls better than they know me! LOL!   They refer to me as Nitty and Annie's "MOM"!  Ha! Ha!
Here's the wreath on my front door...............
and of course I had to put up my ceramic pumpkin in the window.....I have 2 of them that my Aunt Alice made when she was alive......... they always remind me of her, she was a wonderful Aunt and had no children of her own so she spoiled her nieces and nephews, one of which was MOI!!!
I finally got a bit of time to work on my applique quilt block and now I just have a little enhancement embroidery to do on it and this block will be done!
I should be back blogging on a more regular basis now that I've gotten all the "not so fun" stuff taken care of and that gives me more "fun stuff" to blog about!!!!  Hope you've had a great week so far!

  3. That's lots of stuff, sounds like you and the dogs are ready to face the winter now.....I'm supposed to get a flu jab because I'm asthmatic, but it's alw ays hard to get an appointment that fits around school runs and after school clubs.

    I love your fall square it's beautiful!

    I say 'up and at em' to my kid when I wake them up!
