Happy Sunday, everyone. Welcome to Sunday Mornings at Home…a lifestyle post with a little of this and a little of that.
Fall officially came in yesterday, however South Texas did not get the memo and it was in the upper 90s.
But, I still have fall in my heart and will celebrate no matter what the weather says outside.
It was a very busy week…so, sadly, I have not recipes for you today.
Again, if any of you would like to send a recipe with a picture to share with the audience, just email it to over50feeling40.com
I will explain more about this week in the last section of the post.
So, join me in a cozy spot with your favorite morning beverage…and let’s read Sunday Mornings at Home.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: WHAT I WORE
I know it is warm…though not triple digits…so I still like to wear lightweight jackets for the polished part of my style adjectives this time of year.
You have seen this one before…it is a linen boyfriend jacket from Banana Republic Outlet; with an Eileen Fisher silk tank in espresso; JJILL high-rise bootcut jeans; Easy Spirit Travel time Classic Clogs.
When I shop, I do not wear many accessories to take on and off, but adding my older Anthropologie moon pin works to bring a little of my creative adjective in.
I like that it has little faux pearls dancing under the moon.
You might like to look at Anthropologie’s Unique Vintage Inspired Jewelry.
When I am mostly going from the car to store to store, wearing a light blazer such as this is no big deal to me.
FASHION NOTE: JJILL RELEASED NEW ARRIVALS YESTERDAY IN COOLER COLORS…COOL PALETTE LADIES SHOULD CHECK IT OUT!
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: NEW HOME TOUCHES
I wish you could see the color in this picture…burgundy is there at the back.
This is an antique wine bucket that I found at a resale shop months ago and really liked it for an area of my front room.
I needed something tall to cover some technology chords in the back, and I fell of the bucket.
In the middle of this autumn arrangement, I placed a cinnamon broom…are you familiar with them?
Our local grocery sells them every fall.
When you first open a cinnamon broom, the aroma is strong and some may say overpowering.
Yet, within a few hours it settles down and for days leaves the home with a sweet cinnamon aroma as if a candle was constantly going.
I usually open one when family is coming over, as they did last weekend to celebrate Mr. B and his run.
When one of us runs 47 miles around a lake in England…it is cause for celebration.
I introduced my oldest granddaughter to cinnamon brooms that day and she loved it!
I told you we did some landscaping in our backyard over the summer…since it was mostly a 108 degree daily summer, it is still recovering.
But, I purchased this bird bath fountain for the backyard from….now the home of Bed, Bath & Beyond products.
I wanted color in the backyard that reflects San Antonio…and I love the bird bath.
The only problem is that it has to be plugged in…so we are perplexed as to where to place it in the backyard.
Right now? It is in the breakfast room…and it is kind of like living in a spa…soothing water flowing. Does anyone have a fountain in your home?
I know there are solar ones available…I just fell for this one…now I have to figure out how to use it best.
I will photograph where ever it lands permanently!
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: TOO MUCH ON MY MIND
This is Tux giving me his look when he believes I am doing something stupid.
I wish he could be more of a personal assistant!
When I get busy and have many things on my mind, I am most likely to make mistakes…that often, make me feel old.
For example, recently I went to Amazon to order a re-fill of my hair conditioner. I thought I ordered one…I got six! Sigh.
The other night I turned on a sprinkler…and completely forgot about it…until morning when I went in the backyard and there it was still going.
Those are the best two examples. So, what has been on my mind this week…
My daughter needs me to come help her for 8 days with my grandsons, so I have feverishly been working on content for YOU, so that you have something to read while I am away from the office.
That is what I did when I went on the cruise…it is so much work…but worth every minute of it to keep this blog community thriving. ( I will be reading your comments and occasionally responding)
Also, on my mind is my attack from May 2022.
That was the one when a man chased me one morning into my house and waved a lawn mower blade above my head.
I firmly believe God saved me that day. The man was captured and arrested.
He comes up for sentencing ( he had several priors for sexual assaults and substance abuse) in late October.
This week, I needed to write a victim’s letter to be read to him in court….so it kind of consumed my mind.
But, I do think God desires to use me to send a message of hope to this man…though I think a part of that hope and change needs to happen in prison.
The original story can be found CRIME CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE…IT DID TO ME.
The blessing is that I believe with all of my heart that God saved me that day.
So trust HIM every day to be there for you as well.

Remember, you can shop ANYTIME with the links under the page at the top called SHOPPING LINKS...and I will receive a small compensation for your shopping.
Also, if I have posted a link on a specific garment, and you use that link to go to the website of the brand, but look around and buy something else, I still get credit…though you do not buy what I am wearing.
Please ask any questions… this income helps keep me here, because even at age 70, Mr. B and I need additional income. He also works two jobs.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who shops this way.
