  1. Happy Saturday, Seekerville!

    We're heading into a beautiful autumn weekend here in the Black Hills after experiencing our first "winter event" of the season! I have words to write, but then fall garden clean-up tops the to-do list. :-)

    Have a great one!

  2. We're having a windy, fall day in Georgia! The sky looks like rain but none is forecast. Lots of falling leaves! Tomorrow the temp drops to the forties...and we've been hitting 80 degrees so a BIG change.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  3. Same here, Jan & Debby. We're having a beautiful "fallish" day here in MS. I've heard the temps are going to drop though.

  4. We are having nice fall weather, too. I'm excited to win Ruthy's book! Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
