A Good Start
I did get Autumn put away and spaces clear off on Saturday like I said I would. We also got out during a gap in the rain to pick greens in our garden.
All of my pottery collection is stored away to make way for the Santa collection
Sunday morning we made a wreath using greens we picked on Saturday.
Much of Sunday was taken up watching sports. The Seahawks and the Sounders were both playing a 1:00. The football game was just another in the regular season, so we kept track of it but put our full attention on the soccer game. The Sounders were playing for the Western Conference Championship, and a chance to go to the final, the MLS Cup.
The Sounders won! They play for the Cup on December 10th, opponent yet to be decided. The Seahawks lost to Tampa Bay.
In the evening I unpacked the Santa collection and put them in place.
Today the rain let up and we were able to get our exercise walk in, and then we worked outside. In order to put lights in the house, Tom needs to clean the roof first. He takes the blower onto the roof to remove the moss and fir needles and cedar droppings. Then I do the clean up on the ground while puts up the lights.
It was getting dark by the time I finished the cleaning up at 4:30. The patio and driveway and front entrance are all cleaned up. the house lights are up. More yard lights are yet to come.
I pulled out summer plants from the porch planters and filled them with greens.
Now the front entrance is looking ready for the holidays.
It's a good start.
