I made myself another list of things to do.  This one is a bit loftier than normal, I think.  But as always, if I don't complete everything on this list it is okay.

I didn’t get all the things done as planned due to the warmer than usual weather last month.  Usually this time of year we are in the cooler days of fall.  The trees have just begun to turn and aren't dormant yet so pruning and cleanup has been put on hold.  Since our garden is still producing I haven't cleaned up and prepped the garden beds for winter yet either.

Still blooming in October

Our busier than normal schedule made it so I haven’t been able to sew or craft anything for awhile either.  But soon I plan to get busy and make up for lost time.
