Happy Fall Friday!

Well we survived hurricane Matthew. Our area had loads of rain and wind. High tide brought lots of flooding of major bridges and roadways. most were closed a good while. the two out by us finally cleared up by Wednesday. Had lots of power lines out and trees down. We were without power for close to 24 hours which is a lot better than some folks had to deal with and in NC and SC still folks without power.

Our damage was by wind then heavy rain. The winds blew our crawlspace door off then huge amount of rain blew in under our house! So had to be pumped out and still have to have fans and heat lamps going. We had loads of limbs to get up but thankfully nothing fell on our house or the vehicles.
Lots of flooding around us, though most has receded.
Yes we had a lot to deal with here in coastal Virginia but not nearly as bad as folks south of us in coastal NC and SC. So I still keep them in thought and prayers.
I think I am caught up now with laundry and cleaning! 
Pulled out the Fall decor and finished putting that out. Looks so pretty. Still not finished the new runners! Hope to work on them this coming week.  Here are a couple older ones on the blanket chest.

Been sewing on birthday gifts for our DIL.Will share after they are given! ;-)
Son, DIL and Olivia will be here Sunday to celebrate with us belatedly!! 
Can't wait to give Olivia hugs and kisses. Been a bit since we have seen her and she is growing like a weed!!!

We are enjoying some Fall like days here finally.
Cooler temps and beautiful blue skies.
Lots of fun Fall Festivals happening most weekends.
Not sure how many we will be able to attend but do hope we can get out and enjoy the season!
Sometimes it seems like we go from Summer to Winter with no Fall!! So want to make the most of it this year!!


  1. Hey when you live in the Sunshine state--there really is not Fall--though I can see a bit of here and there--and can tell when winter get here--but most people just don't notice the changes!! DD and I did leave the east coast and went to Atlanta GA and spent a couple days there and one day went to the Aquarium there--enjoyed that--no damage here for us--just a couple trees or limbs down and lots of debris--other wise--the hardest thing for me has been our winds and high waves since the storm--today was finally a day I could sit on the dock and enjoy some sunshine!!
    love your fall decorating--I just got a fall wall hanging hung on the door--does that count???
    love and laughter, di

  2. I agree about the weather! We had cooler days over the weekend, but today it's hot and humid again. I'm still working on ufo's, so hopefully I will make a good dent before the end of the year :-)

  3. Your fall items are gorgeous!! I'm glad to here you didn't have too much damage from the hurricane. Hope you have fun with your family on the weekend!

  4. Love the applique pumpkins! Hope you had a fun weekend with the kids xx
