Fall is in the air

I noticed yesterday that the air is definitely smelling like fall. I have been so busy with birthday party planning, work and getting all the things done around the house before the snow starts to fly that I have not had a lot of time to blog.

This is my favorite time of year where the temperature is perfect- warm day and cool nights. Apples, pumpkins and mums are all about. We went to pick up Mums yesterday and started putting away outdoor furniture. We are hoping today to go for a family bike ride it looks like the weather is going to be perfect for it. We will as usual be tackling the huge list of things that need to be done on the house.

Things I am working on for our house:
Antique fireplace mantel for the house. It needs a major cleaning, sanding, and repairing.
Window treatments and a rug for the living room-getting there slowly
And we are still working on finishing the stairs, laundry room, and sun porch.
It is frustrating sometime for having to wait to do all the pretty thing.
It seems like money and energy just goes into the items you do not see or are not the pretty things- Barn siding, insulation, window and door replacements, drywall and the list goes on.

Our house is getting there slowly there never seems to have enough time in the week to finish all our projects. Unfortunately I want everything to be done at once, I am not a patient person. I sometimes have to stop and look back at all the things that have been accomplished since we bought our house a year ago.

I will update soon with some picture my camera battery died so I have to wait to take some pictures. I hope to be better with my posts in the up coming weeks
