We crawled into the house, showered, and went straight to bed.
No rushing to the computer to write my November first post. No dinner. No setting the clocks forward.
Upon arising today, about thirty minutes ago, we were making a shopping list for Home Depot when I suddenly realized today was November 1. The first day of the month, I am already behind.
Thus, the late post—and it will be a short post.
Writing? What's That?
I don't think I wrote a creative word in October. I was consumed with all the home projects.
Fortunately, the painting crew arrived this past week and finished work yesterday. The house looks magnificent inside and out. I'm having second thoughts about selling. *LOL*
When it comes to my carefully designed gardens, I'm one of those hands-on people. I want to work with the crew, not let them do it and view it afterwards.
They know how I am so it's not a problem when I pick up a heavy stone and place it exactly where I want it—except Darling Hubby fusses at me.
Since the trauma of having the back yard dug up a couple of months ago in order to replace the power cable supply line, I have anxiously awaited the landscapers.
I wanted not only the landscaping restored but also some parts redesigned and the flatstone walk way enlarged a bit.
So Darling Hubby and I worked from 9:00 yesterday morning until 7:00 in the evening. The landscapers departed long before then, but I wanted the big pots of flowers in the front courtyard rearranged, and a Japanese stone lantern moved. Plus a few other things.
To me, a beautiful landscape around our courtyard patio is a lovely place to share a glass of wine with my wonderful husband and with neighbors too.
Thankfully Romantic describes my mood today because my Darling Hubby cooked breakfast for me because I was so stiff and sore. Later, we're going to the plant nursery and pick out some winter flowers for the courtyard planters. I like living growing flowers even better than a bouquet that arrives from a florist.
I'll post the November Spotlight author in a day or two—as soon as my muscle aches recede. *g* In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful November where you can be thankfully romantic too.
