Read very carefully.....

I figure if I can entertain you for a few minutes, you won't realize that I've gotten few of my goals done this week....at least concerning Fall decorating. I've done many, many other things....as well as putting some or a million fires out; well, not literally. That's what I call when you get sidetracked a few million times a day or week....kind of like the alligator game at Chuck E Cheese, where the alligator head keeps popping up and you have to bop it back down...and it keeps popping up faster and faster...??? Remember that one? In my world, putting out fires is doing things like running errands, taking the flash drive up to school when my daughter had to have it, but left it at home in the computer, making a few deliveries, picking up those two or three items that you really need to finish dinner, etc.....you know you know what I mean, and I know you know what I mean......distracted yet???? So I went on an internet hunt...do you do that??? Sometimes it's fun to google something and see what images you get.....so here's a few fun ones I thought I'd share.


This little friend was found over here on HGTV........adorable, yes???


And this giant "pumpkin" is actually made out of IMPATIENS and was spotted in the Dallas Arboretum.... I found it by googling pumpkin topiaries....didn't make a run to Dallas for y'all today to get this pic! Isn't it amazing????

These caught my eye, as they just seem to be the perfect combination of colors and textures........found HERE....

And lastly I leave you with a photo that ALWAYS makes me smile!!!

Have a great Friday, y'all! I'll be on the run again.......take care!

Cool pumpkin pics, Suzannne. Yes, the first one is adorable and the impatiens pumpkin is amazing. Hey, there's always another day! I'm a big list maker and I live in perpetual frustraton because my lists are almost never completed in the order I so carefully plan them! Have a perfect weekend...Kathy

Shame on you for not having all your fall decorations out. One demerit against your southern status. Because, you know my home is all decked out for fall....... (NOT!). :)

Neat pumpkin pictures. And I too love the baby in the pumpkin picture.

Amy said...

HELLO! I wanted to thank you for finding my blog. I look forward to browsing yours. Be sure to stop back often, and I'll be sure to do the same!

Ha ha ~ your week and my week sound like they were similar! (You already know about my LAUNDRYFEST yesterday!)

Such cool pumpkin pictures! I haven't bought any real pumpkins/gourds/etc. yet. There is a self-serve farm stand down the road where I usually go so I'll probably do that this weekend :)

Enjoy your weekend, Suzanne!

great ideas, thanks for doing the search for me. I need that baby picture.

I remember when when my kids were in school . . . my most loved memory of "putting out fires" is te time my daughter forgot her volleyball jersey, and I had to wash it and drive to town with it flying out my window so it could dry. She is a teacher now and just last year I had to bring her something she forgot.

Some things never change. But that's okay, I secretly enjoyed it.

Have a great weekend.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I just pretended they were your comleted Fall decorations, because I totally understand your predicament. I love how you used the illustration of putting out the fires. Doesn't life often feel that way? The best part is that you did that post on it, so that we can all say..."we understand." I do like all the pictures that you chose to share from the Internet.

Wow, Suzanne...those are some pretty neat pictures! The one of the baby laughing is definitely my favorite!

Suzanne, I have got to tell you something. I may be wrong but do I understand right, you work for or ad for SLatH? Well about 4 years ago my GD worked for SLatH and I bought almost everything they had to offer at that time. One of those things was a Cranberry scone mix. I used it 2 days ago. 4 years old? Yes it was in a box, tightly packaged mix and it looked and smelled fine. They were great. I had wondered about scones and had never had one. So that is my testimony. Do they even still sell mixes?

You got the flashdrive call? I've already gotten that one this year too.

We have just been in Dallas for a couple of days. I thought about going to the Arboretum but we didn't have time. I love it there so much! Your pictures are beautiful and inspiring.
