Little of this......

Today started out pretty busy - laundry, groceries, pet supplies, dinner, etc.  There was time for some stitching and redecorating a bit for the new season

Dinner today started yesterday.  I made roasted cauliflower for dinner.  I had two heads that needed to be used.  I cut up the second one along with carrots, potatoes, onions and peppers to put in the crock pot this morning along with seasonings and tomato paste to make vegetable curry.  Honey Do asked for chicken to go along with it, so I baked that with a little seasoning salt.

Once I finished getting dinner together, I did my usual household chores and even got a load of laundry on the line outside to dry.  The days are numbered now that we have passed the midway point of September.  So I will take advantage of everyone that I can.  Now is when I will wash all the blankets and get ready for the coming colder months.

I ran out to run a couple of errands.  While I was at the grocery store, they were running a special on 3 quart containers of mums.  They only had white, but for $2.00 each, how could you pass them up.  I'd been wanting them, but hadn't purchased them yet.  This was the perfect price.

It was also the push I needed to get some of my autumn decorations out.  My mums went on my front porch

with my little straw people.  I just love this grouping.  The mums were a bit droopy when I purchased them, but after a good drink they not only perked up, but the flowers started to open as well.  They will go in the ground for next autumn before the first frost, which should be in about another month.  So that makes them a very economical purchase.

Thank you for stopping by

Wishing you a creative Wednesday.

Love your mums and people! I had a lot of luck transplanting mum in the ground in Arizona, not so much here in Tennessee.

Mums are definitely a sign of autumn for us. I would have thought they would do relatively well for you. I still cover mine just to give them a little more protection even though our winters aren't very harsh these days.

Thank you for your kind comments. You are always so sweet.
