Autumn mists and other signs....
The past few days have been so cold that I was not really tempted to go out, but had to, as I had lots of things to see to. We are getting icy winds from the north and east, I even heard the word *snow* being spoken on the weather show, but I hope they were not talking about here! But I do love to watch the early morning mists, which creep over the fields behind the house, hiding the trees, and giving a glimpse of the hedge here and there. Sometimes they look like white ghosts or witches floating over the grass. But don't worry, I know they are not, even if Halloween (and Netty's birthday) are coming nearer and nearer. I was not in a very good mood this week, although I ususally like Autumn, but perhaps sometimes we all just need a time to grouse, and I think my recent surgery took it out of me more than I like to admit. But on one day we went to a garden centre, where I bought 2 little witches to hang up at the end of the month, and where I wanted to buy an autumn wreath for my door. But the prices were so high, that I decided to leave it. And last night I took an old polystyrene ring, wound some hessian round it, and then stuck on all the autumny bits and bobs I found in my decorations. Had fun working with my glue gun (only burnt myself once this time!) and lots of little black headed needles - which more often than not found their way into my fingers - and now I have a wreath for my door. The round thing in the middle is the spy hole, through which I can look to see who is standing outside, in case anyone should ring my bell. It's not the best wreath in the house - just sneaked around in my dressing gown and looked what the others have got on their doors - but it's mine, and all my own work. Thanks for lookng, and have a nice weekend!
