On Labor Day....I Labor

I know it's still summer on the calendar, but not being at work today, I can get things done at I changed my kitchen cabinet into Fall is my favorite season.  Pretty soon I won't have time to do the indoor "stuff" because the outdoor chores will be calling....the leaves, small painting jobs and odds and ends.  I'm into closets and getting rid of all of those manuals for appliances I no longer own, found lots of batteries...they would have come in handy last week had I known....and I have more of those outlet strips....I'll probably never need to buy another one.  I found my First Communion prayer book!  I'll add that to my mini book collection.  I can't dawdle here...there's more to do!
 I bought this sparkly crow and tiny pumpkins that fill this cupcake holder and... I picked up a mini book at our library book fair this weekend...The Raven and Three Tales of Horror by Edgar Allen Poe.  This isn't about Halloween...I just think crows are interesting...

I made a couple of wreaths to go on the front doors of our church.  Time to switch to Fall!
 These are grapevine wreaths and I used a lot of eucalyptus...that holds up well.  And some other funky things that Mother Nature provides...and Michael's craft store!

Mother Nature Got Creative This Week way of Hurricane Irene.  Posting a couple of photos from the neighborhood....multiply these by the hundreds and you get an idea of what it's like here. Once we were finally able to step out of our homes, we were driving under power lines that sagged under the weight of trees.  There are still many "sketchy" trees still standing and some that have huge limbs hanging high up, not yet ready to come down....
This was taken right around the corner from my home....on a deadend street.  The power lines are down and the houses on the other side of this....can't get out....this is a street where I walk my dog.

 This photo goes with the one above fell down across the road.
