Cheesed....

I am completely cheesed...I work myself into an early bedtime last night, getting the front porch cleaned and re-arranged...putting my terracotta pumpkins out, taking the bunnies in...pavin' the way for my annual September 1st Celebration...the celebration that includes not just celebrating that September, an Official Month of Autumn, is here but that, thank you, August is gone...and that I made it through one more time without requiring Professional Medical Help or Legal Representation...

only to get up early to have a cup o' coffee and monkey around with my template...deleting Summer Green and adding Light Goldenrod(EEDD82), Dark Goldenrod 2 (EEAD0E), a little BloodOrange (CC1100)...to find it is still August...

oh the Gods of Irony are sniggerin'...

well...I'm off to sulk now...Pumpkin Pixs and Stuff TOMORROW...

***Pumpkin Pixs update....well...to put it plainly...I lied...no pixs today or tomorrow and possibly Monday...DS & Fiancee borrowed my digital camera for their trip to Dragon Con...I've been to the Con a few times...If you are a fantasy or science fiction fan, then you must go to a Con some time...

Hubby & I took DS to the Con when he was in high school...mostly he was interested in the gaming competition (yes, the boy is good)...but we also took in some of the Tolkien Track...which, BTW, if you think you are a Tolkien Fanatic of the First Order, lemme tell ya'll...you ain't seen nothing until you attend a lecture on the Eleven Language of Tolkien's Word...and hear a room full of grown-ups burst into riotous applause over the Pronunction of a Vowel Sound based upon one of the appendices of the Silmarillion...it was like Tolkien Nerd Heaven...and I thoroughly enjoyed myself...

Of course, the Xena track had Ted Rami just across the hall...and they were hootin' and hollerin' it up too...both rooms packed to the gills, people linin' up around the perimeter of the rooms and stuffed into the doorways...people kept stoppin' to see just what Big Celeb was in our room...hah hah....

And then when the spy photos* came out...this was during the filming of Peter Jackson's LOTR movies...Mass Frenzy...what a blast...

So there...ya'll know...I'm a bit of a Nerd...

*spy photos largely consisted of a vague bump on the ground which was reported to be a part of Hobbiton...things like that....but it was still Great Fun...in fact, if air fare to New Zealand wasn't so outrageous, I'd probably take this tour...

Oh, you are so ahead of me...I am not feeling fall yet...though the sun speaks of it.

Cathy said...

I'm not feeling it quite yet either. Hopefully, the cooler temps this week will help.

I'm with you! My pumpkins and leaves and fall candles are sitting in the hall closet, just waiting for my guests to leave so I can put them out.

Go ahead and post those pumpkin pics, girl!

see you there! said...

Well, you SHOULD (heh!) put them out..and I guess you will tomorrow. I'll come back to see them.

Enough with the summer stuff, I'm way over it already.

I'm looking forward to seeing your fall decor and getting some inspiration from it. My touch of fall for the weekend is to change my front porch planters from marigolds to yellow mums. I think I'll change my wreath, too.

Today I went to our annual State Apple Festival that is held in my town of Hendersonville, NC. It helped me get in the mood for fall.

We almost went to Dragon Con in Atlanta last year! We're all huge Inu Yasha fans and really all things sci-fi.

I see everyone is ready for fall! Me too, although I'm not much for changing out all my decor for it, so I'll have to come see your blog for some fall inspiration.

I'm just starting to get that awesome fall feeling too - it's rainy & cool here this morning for a nice change. Haven't gotten out the pumpkins yet but I'm gettin' there! Love the new template colors!
Enjoy your day!

Fall right now would be very pleasing. I'm also waaaay over summer, especially now that school is back in session, and that means I'm back to work.
I've never decorated for Halloween, isn't that odd?? It happens to be my younger sisters favorite holiday!
I like the new colors, very calming!

it's all about the journey...
