Life's Busy -- Be Back Soon!

Hi everyone!  Just a short post to say "Help!"  (Just kidding)  :)  Life is really busy here at the moment.  If I haven't stopped by your blog as regularly as I normally do, it's because I'm trying to keep my head above water here.  I'm determined to finish this de-cluttering before the holidays are upon us, and I want to do a really thorough job so that I won't have to turn around and do it again three months from now.  Can anyone else relate?!

I still look at my blogroll and try to keep up with what you're doing, but I just can't spend much time looking and visiting at the moment.  I hope you're all well and enjoying autumn.  Please don't forget me -- I'll be back soon!

October Note Card Party

I'm so glad to be participating in Vee's monthly Note Card Party again -- it's one of my very favorites.  :)  Stop by A Haven For Vee and see what the party is all about; I think you'll be glad you did.

I usually have a theme for my Note Cards, but you certainly don't have to.  I like to add a caption to my cards, too, because I'm just OCD that way.  :)  This month I'm simply doing "Fall Scenes."

Chateau Morrisette Winery

Hi everyone!  We're having a cool snap here, how about you?  It's been bright and sunny, so all in all, a really nice fall day.

Do you like to take day trips?  We almost always go to the mountains for our day trips, but we haven't gotten to do that in quite a while.  This is our favorite time of the year to go to the mountains and drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Technically, the Blue Ridge Parkway is a National Park, so I wonder if it will be blocked off with barricades?  Hmmm -- sure hope not.

All the pictures in this post are from fall of 2011.  We have several local wineries near us in North Carolina that we like to visit, but Chateau Morrisette is actually in Virginia.  It's further for us to drive, but we enjoy spending an afternoon there in the fall if we have a free day.  It's right off the Blue Ridge Parkway in a little community called Meadows of Dan.

Closet Progress and A Purse Organizer

Hello everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful weekend wherever you were.  We had a pretty weekend here, and a hot one.  A bit of Indian Summer in this first week of October.

I'm still in the grip of my cleaning and organizing frenzy.  Wow -- I know I've made some good progress, but there's still so much to do.  This is what I get for procrastinating.  :)  Our city gives everyone a large trash can for weekly pickup (I think it's about a 50 or 60 gallon can on wheels) and it was completely full yesterday evening, just in time for today's pickup.  That's a good thing because it's not always full, and that means I got a lot more junk cleaned out this weekend.

My closet is about 97 percent finished.  I do still have to go through some of my clothes, and I'm sure I'll be putting some of them back in the closet.  When I first posted about my big closet re-org, I mentioned that I had purchased a new purse organizer, and one of my friends commented that I should show a picture of said purse organizer.  These pics are for you, Dotsie.  :)
