Texas Weather is nuts! Trust me when I say this. Let me give you an example. Last Friday afternoon, we had sleet that was totally unexpected and un-forcast by the weather people.
Tuesday night we hit a low of 45 and with the wind blowing that morning when we walked Charley, it was really brisk to say the least. (We also saw three deer right across from our house. Such a heart swelling event.) It stayed in the upper 50s on Tuesday. Then Wednesday, we hit 80. Not great but okay.
However, today Thursday we’re looking at 93 and possibly beating the high temp record. Then it stays in the high 80s like 88 and 87 for the next five days before dropping to 64. Up and down. Up and down. See. Just nuts. And 93 in November is super nuts!!! When it turns chilly, Charley claims his spot in front of the fireplace.
So even though we don’t have a real fall working yet, I decided to celebrate fall and decorating. I was inspired by how nice my cousin’s house was decorated when I went to my aunt’s memorial service in Georgia. Don’t these pics just make you smile? Sure made me realize I need to add a bit more before my circle meets at our house on November 14.
What I have: coffee table.
Dining room Table
Karen Clay’s Beautiful decorations: The fireplace was especially stunning and my pic doesn’t do it justice.
So what about you? Do you get into decorating for fall and Christmas/Hanukkah? What about Valentines, St Patrick’s Day, and July 4th? I read about someone who left up their Christmas tree and just changed out the decorations monthly.
And what about Halloween decorations? I don’t remember this being common in the past, but they’ve been everywhere this year. What’s your experience with decorations? Love to hear from you.
