As Summer winds down,
am adding in more Autumn in my home.
Today's Cupboardscape was an inspiration
from nature herself.
We have been travelling through the marsh
lately to go to and from Bob's doctor appts.
The swans are still here.
Some even still have babies,
which is odd for this time of year.
Each week I can see the colors changing.
From green to red.
Mixed in with some golds.
The Timothy grass is in full bloom.
Some of the Mute Swans leave and
head South for the Winter.
Those that stay now are fed by folks
along the river, which is not a good practice.
Our Trumpeter Swans do leave.
However because we have so many Mute Swans
now, our Trumpeters have moved North.
It is a rare treat when I do see them in the river
in the Springtime.
These swans are native, the mutes are not.
In other news,
we had a scare with Bob again.
Apparently his blood pressure dosage
he was prescribed after his stroke
was increased way too much.
He was once again having headaches,
getting dizzy and just lethargic.
Come to find out after contacting the doctor,
someone prescribed too much.
He now has the correct dosage and is doing
He still has peripheral vision issues in his left eye.
Also still has some short term memory loss.
The doctor said it could take 3 to 6 months
for his brain to heal.
Am putting away the Patriotic decor,
and adding in some Autumn.
Working on Christmas items for the store now.
My Christmas theme this year is a
All of the wholesale companies are leaning
toward this design style, so I decided to incorporate
it into the store.
Just hoping all of my inventory comes in.
We open for Christmas the second weekend
I already crocheted some fun Nordic hats.
I also crocheted peppermint candle mats.
Currently working on some Nordic elves.
Well off to work.
August Blessings To All!
