Fall is in the WNY!

I know what your saying it's still summer
Don't talk about fall 
because after that comes winter! 

But here in Western New York
Fall is in the air
It's been in the high 60's low 70's all week
Mornings are chilly
tress are changing colors
Look here my burning bush is sporting red leaves!

I made peach cobbler this week....
It's my end of summer dessert!

The deer are busy getting fat for winter
We are finding holes all over our yard from squirrels hiding food....
What are they saying....
Whatever it is I'm loving the cooler, humid free days!

I do love Fall!

My girl

My girl had her wisdom teeth out on Friday!
She did really well...
rough couple days
still a little tender
all and all a good lil patient
I ❤ her!

1. My daughter earned her Master's Degree this past weekend...what's something you've 'mastered' in recent weeks or months?
Congrats to your Daughter!! Nothing lately unless you count Candy Crush! Which I'd like to say I'm really close to quitting! 

2. What song most reminds you of your childhood?
Anything from the 80's reminds me of my one song.

3. What do you think about single gender groups and/or events? Should everygroup/event be open to both genders?  If not, what sort of exceptions do you think are appropriate? 

I think they are fine....Like book clubs, Bunco, Stitch and guy wants to be apart of that. Just like poker night is guys only. I think sports and cards can be enjoyed with both genders. 

4. What's your favorite spice? Your favorite dish containing your favorite spice?
Nutmeg or cinnamon remind me of Fall and Winter!

5.  I saw this question on Marla's facebook page and asked if I could steal borrow it for the Hodgepodge...thanks Marla! 

Chevron patterns are everywhere!  Do you like it or think its just a little too much? Do you own anything 'chevron'?
I like it...we just did a Chevron craft for Katelyn's dorm room and I'm looking at ordering a Chevron print scarf but currently I don't own anything in this print. 

6.  What's something you disliked as a child, but can fully appreciate now?

7. What can irritate you very quickly?
Driving....I have little patience for WNY drivers!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I'm working part part time this week while our office is closed....I'm really liking it! Getting a glimpse of my old life that I miss so much! Perfect week since it's Katelyn's last week home before heading back to college! Gonna miss that girl!

Today's version of postcards

Remember back in the day when people actually used the US postal service?
I loved receiving and sending postcards 
You know the wish you were here....
insert sunny beach or mountain capped background!

My hubby has been traveling for work
We haven't vacationed in a long time
So we live vicariously through others trips
even business trips! 

Todays versions of postcards are Instagram or snapchats or FB status.
I'm usually annoyed by my husbands out of town pictures of amazing foods and views.

His last trip was to London 
A place my family loves and has visited many times
It was fun to see our favorite spots and remember the last time we were there.
He had gorgeous weather, which we never had. 
I assumed it always rained in London 
But his wish you were here pictures always show beautiful blue skies and sun!

Royal baby tea towel
( I collect tea towels from various places)

The Tower Bridge

Big Ben

My hubby on the London Eye surely saying I wish you were here!

Well HELLO August

Hey How's everyone?  
Where has the summer gone?
 Last time I checked in here my parents were here visiting,
 that was in the end of June!

Summer has been a blur
life and working full time
not much room for anything else
Now August is here
Katelyn leaves for school in
two weeks
lots to do
She gets her wisdom teeth out next week
Fun Fun
Hope your all having a wonderful summer.....
