Today, My Lady Caroline, who is one of my Twitter friends tweeted that she wished I was as chatty as I used to be on my blog. Oops, I admit that I haven't been blogging a lot lately--no excuses. I do spend a lot of time on Instagram now...it's so quick and easy. Just post the photos and go! So for those who don't follow me on Instagram, here's a peek at what's been going on at The Roost this fall.
We bought a small house to be near my Mama so that I can scoot back and forth whenever I'm needed to help with her caregiving. I actually love this little house. As I am aging, I find that it's important to me to be able to take care of what I have. The smaller the size, the easier it is!
I'm still using the same Halloween wreath from last year.
I don't decorate with a ton of Halloween stuff like I used to...I just added a lot of orange this year.
Sprayed all my pumpkins gold.
Mary Elizabeth also received the gold spray paint treatment and is decked out with an orange bow--and pearls, of course!
I have cut back on the roosters everywhere, but I still keep a few on the front porch to greet our guests at the front door. Don't know how long the mums will last. The pumpkin...well it's kind of a posh pumpkin. I bought it at James Farmer, Inc. in Perry...
Cocktail hour...more orange.
Tea Time...I love Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Rooibus tea with Pumpkin Spice English Muffins and apple butter.
More orange on the tabletop...
I carried breakfast to a meeting and used the darling Target "Cheeky" plates and to-go cups...
The Halloween tree is up on the porch, decorated witchy-style!
These are my treats this year for the special little trick-or-treaters...
I served Pimiento Cheese Balls at Happy Hour on Gameday last Saturday. Yes, that's the day the Florida State Seminoles got beat by Georgia Tech. Of course, I'll never serve these things again! Bad luck. I'm VERY superstitious! But, moving on to the Syracuse game this week. Go Noles!
Just in case you want to prepare them...I added cream cheese, some chopped cooked bacon, chopped jalapenos, and chopped pecans to Palmetto Cheese and then topped them off with pretzel sticks.
Hope everyone is enjoying Autumn. Today it was 57 degrees, dark, and misting rain. I was hoping for crisp, sunny days and cool nights. I think it's time to get out the boots!
