If we were having coffee I would tell you that the peak of autumn colors in Sacramento begins now through Thanksgiving unless a major winter storm comes through. Ski resorts are already opening in Lake Tahoe just 90 miles from here.
Are you feeling cold yet? How about a nice, hot cup of Colombian medium roast with a smidge of pumpkin spice-flavored coffee for you today? I also have tea if you prefer. I even have a fire in the fireplace today.
I am so in the autumn mood, that I have surrounded myself in my house with orange and rust décor in towels, silk flowers, brown tablecloth, the works.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that, although today ended up being rainy and cold (can I get an AMEN??), Saturday was an incredibly gorgeous day. In fact we were invited to drive up to Apple Hill with some friends. Our neighbors invited us to their potluck. My hubby’s boss invited him on a bike ride.
All were politely turned down…because…
…today we began the construction of the interior of our new walk-in closet that came with the master bedroom addition. I am married to a master carpenter, so other than planning the layout, he did all the work. We are still working on it, but soon I can hang my clothes in ONE place, rather than figure out which of three locations my clothes are currently residing! I am working on a DIY towel rack for the new master bath, using an old piece of driftwood from the river. Pinterest-worthy finished photos soon!
On my morning dog-walking excursion the other day, I captured some fabulous fall leaves. They are in the gallery. Most of the photos are close-ups because many of the trees are still mostly green. No colorful tree-lined streets just yet, but that is for another post. I will make you sick of Autumn in no time!
For those who celebrate Veteran’s Day (USA), we get the holiday on Wednesday.
We will be hard at work on that closet! Regardless of your geography, please honor a veteran this week.
If you are not already enjoying coffee with us at Part-Time Monster’s Weekend Coffee Share, come join any time and tell us about your week!
Enjoy your week!
