The Thankful Season

Hello everyone -- how was your week?  I've been taking a break from blogging due to sickness -- again.  Barely six months ago, I had this stuff in the late spring/early summer, and it took awhile to get over.  In my previous post, I mentioned that Hal was sick; his cold turned into bronchitis.  Mine seems to be following the same progression as his, so I really hope I don't wind up with bronchitis, because I hate to be sick at Thanksgiving.  It will work out one way or the other, and there are people in the world with much worse problems.

Here's a real first world problem for you ;)  -- my page views on the blog are way down.  Gasp!  Not that I ever have a ton of views anyway, but it makes me feel bad when they get this low.  {:/  I have nothing new to contribute at the moment, so I'll share some links to past years' posts.

Checking In

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to you, or as we used to say at my workplace, "Friday's Eve."  ;)  I hope you're enjoying some sunshine wherever you are this week.  What a relief to see the sun again.

This is one of those posts that's a mishmash of what's going on around here at the moment.  Not much rhyme or reason to the post, mostly just checking in for the week.  First of all, Mr. Forest Manor isn't feeling well, so he turned around this morning after he got halfway to work and came back home.  He's sleeping as I type this.  Master Duncan thought it was some kind of holiday since Pop came right back home, so he's been beside himself with excitement.

Autumn 2015

This year it seems the trees have outdone themselves with their changing leaf colors.  I gather that fall is putting on a glorious show all over the U.S. and Canada.

Tartan Parade

Happy Monday everyone!  Have you seen Alison's blog, The PolohouseI enjoy reading her posts because she decorates her home in English country style, and I'm a big fan of English country.  :)  Alison is having a "Tartan Parade" on her blog today, and I decided to join in.  I haven't been participating in link parties for the last few months because life has just been too hectic, but a party featuring tartan plaids was hard for me to resist.

I love tartan plaid -- both in my wardrobe and in our home.  We have bits of tartan scattered throughout the house, so I'll share some here (I apologize to my readers who've seen these before).

Deer Crossing Signs

Happy Saturday everyone!!  We're seeing quite a few deer out and about now.  They're beautiful, but I'm always afraid they will run across the road in front of me, and that wouldn't be good for anyone involved.

The Look of Fall

I added some fall touches to the terrarium in our den.  This style of terrarium is known as a Wardian Case, and you can read what I wrote about them Here.  I haven't tried real plants in mine, because I don't think they would survive; this corner of the den gets almost no sunlight.  I just substitute other things for live plants -- do I know how to have fun, or what?  :-D
