Summer-like in the house and very Autumn outside the door

I know it still looks like summer in my house, but that's only because
I haven't had any time to change things up this season.
There are no truer words in my world than,
'I'm so far behind I think I'm first'
So my goal this week is to get some new sofa pillows sewn up and
while I think I'm going to skip the whole Autumn decor this year,
I am going to put away the pastel colors and go for some richer
florals and warmer throws than the summer throw on the sofa
in the photo below.
I will be putting the dried peonies away and fill the urn with
hydrangeas instead.



It certainly is Fall-ish outside in the garden.
A pretty stark contrast to what is indoors.

I love, love, love how beautifully everything colored up this fall.
rose hips everywhere
under the birch tree
 The Snowdift crab apple is covered in apples and the birds are going 
to be very happy this winter.





This time of year is so fleeting and I have been enjoying every day
of this beautiful fall weather we have had here in Idaho.
My internet service was down for over a week and it was so strange
not being able to connect. Right after it was restored,
I went to spend a week with my mom, daughter and sister in Boise
and when I visit family I don't connect, so I really have been
out of the loop for a long, long time.
Being a blogger has become a big part of my life, because
 when I go about my days I not only think about my non-blogging friends
and how they are doing, but I also
think and worry about all of my blogging friends.
It really does make the world very small indeed and widens our view
and opens our hearts to each other, and that is what friendship is.
