Oh my goodness! We have had a cold and rainy week this last week and I have loved every single minute of it!
Yes - even taking the dogs out when it was 28 degrees, or pouring cats and dogs. I can get their little coats on and off them pretty quick now!

"You'd better be giving us treats for embarrassing us like this Karen!"
"Of course, me being the Princess Girl brat dog, I have TWO outfits.
I love my pink rhinestone sweater the best!"
OK, enough of those two. So last weekend - just in the nick of time - I accomplished the last of my Autumn chores. I got my tree trimmer out here to get my yard in check. I usually have them trimmed by late October but for some reason this year time just kind of got away from me. The inside of my house was dark and COLD! Here are some before and afters! Whew!
We have this Pepper tree right in front of the living room window.
Great shade in the summer!
And we also have three huge Sycamores.
Before - (how embarrassing!)
The Sycamores just get out of control.
This was taken last spring - but I have to show you -
see those three trees by the curb
on either side of the driveway?
They were the most annoying trees.
Their roots were the WORST! They HAD to go!
After! sigh. Let the sun shine in!!!!
And those three nasty lovely trees are HISTORY!
Yup, we'll just do it all over again next Fall. But that's OK.
This morning is a GORGEOUS morning. We've had about 3" of
rain this past week and we needed it desperately!
Our elevation is high for our town and we have quite a view.
(Well we don't - we are on the wrong side of the street.
But we have RV parking - there are priorities ya know!)
Looking south from the front door
at the clouds just racing across the sky.
Hmmmm . . . I think my neighbor across the street
needs to trim his trees too! (won't happen . . . )
What a BEAUTIFUL day! Everything is so clean!
This rain was a HUGE gift from God.
And thankfully there were no mudslides for the people
living in the burn area from the 250,000 acre "Station" wildfire we had
last summer. It's very hard to pray for rain, when you
understand it might put some people in harm's way.
But pray I did. Lots!
OK, now that I'm done with this silly post about dog attire and tree trimming - LOL -
I'm sending out a little reminder to everyone that the final Doors of Welcome will be this coming Tuesday - December 15th. I can't wait to see how everyone spruces up their doors. So be sure to spread the word, and it isn't too late if you still want to join in!!
Have a wonderful day!!! I'm going to get going on my wrapping! The trees just look sad with no gifts under them!
PS - I almost forgot. Yesterday I got FORTY SIX E - MAILS - yes- the "missing" comments from comment moderator finally showed up!! LOL
