It feels like fall y’all, and in only eight days….


Well y’all I am sitting at my kitchen table with my windows open and the cool crisp fall breeze is blowing in, there is a pot of soup on the stove and in exactly eight day the hubs and I are off to San Francisco for a few days vacation. Whoooooo Hoooooooo!!!!!!!

I’m off tomorrow to do a bit of shopping, vacation trips usually set my shopping anxiety aside, sometime ya just gotta have a little something new for a trip, if ya know what I mean.

I might even go for the whole nine yards and do a manicure & pedicure for the occasion.

We fly to San Francisco and we plan to spend some time in Napa Valley as well.  I am going to buy a spare memory card for the trip so I will not be hindered in my picture taking.

Before my vacation euphoria travel anxiety completely takes over I wanted to get at least one more post in before I am wrapped up in packing, laundry and making all the last minute details with those who will be in charge of the DD while we are gone. Children and pets tend to require additional pesky details when planning vacations.

Thankfully I have wonderful friends and a sister who loves animals, so I am covered on both fronts in regard to the daughter and the dog.

Over the last few days there has been a real hint of fall in the air. It motivated me over the weekend to pack up my summer flower fake arrangements and place my fall colors out.

I have always been a bit challenged in the decorating arena but I have over the last few years, since moving into a new space begun to acquire a few small fall accessories.

I won’t win any southern living tablescape awards, but it was fun to get a bit of the seasonal touchs around the place.


Ever since my “Emmaus” weekend I have been drawn to rosters and chickens. I found this little guy at the hobby lobby last fall.


I love these angles with their fall leaves for wings!! Very festive!


And this little guy was tucked in a bag of fall potpourris and it has now found a home in my Christmas cactus!


These fall flowers are on my kitchen counter. They just give the kitchen a bit of fall color.


Happy Fall Y’all!

My soup is simmering away and I may even make a batch of corn bread to sop it up with!

Ahhh...vacationing...how I miss that.

I'm loving the cool air too. I've not put out fall stuff yet...I will do that this weekend probably. Love fall decorations/colors...just gorgeous.

"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." (widely attributed to Mark Twin -- altho that's now widely disputed)

But the point is: take warm clothes! :-)

Hey, yell out a hello Pilgrim!! to my son when you get to San Francisco. He lives in a suburb there and I really miss him! Have a grrreat trip! I am soooo happy for you that you get to go do this.

The pumpkin in the last of your photos- I have that same pumpkin here on my mantle. :)

I hope your trip is wonderful!! San Francisco should be nice this time of year!

On your three little pics above, there is the cross I won last year and have hanging in my family room. I look at it every day and just love it.

I'm off, also, for a little "whing ding" to the Mexican Riveria--can hardly wait!

Thanks for the inspiration to get the fall things out. Haven't done that yet, so will wait until after my trip I guess.

Have a great time!

Robin! San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. We are there quite a bit. If you want some ideas of places to go, email me at robynnsravings at gmail dot com. I'd be happy to share. I just sent a girlfriend's sister and her husband to our favorite haunts (they're from the east coast) and they had a BALL! You may have it all sewn up, but I'm here if you need anything! Have FUNNNNN!
