Well, hello October! And welcome to Sunday Mornings at Home…in celebration of this incredible month.
I so hope this year October brings to Texas cooler weather and rain for a drought stricken land.
Nevertheless, I will celebrate this amazing month no matter what it holds!
In case you are new here, Sunday Mornings at Home has become a weekly lifestyle post with a little of this and a little of that.
I always hope that it includes some fun ideas for you and encouragement for your week.
I am still away from the office today…with my daughter’s family…but will be looking forward to your comments and will do my best to answer any questions that you may have.
So, get a cozy cup of joy and let’s get started today with Sunday Mornings at Home….
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: OCTOBER FUN
Why do I love this sign so much? Because October is truly when South Texas says good bye to summer and this past year it was a summer of excessive heat.
Some in San Antonio may believe the leaves are already changing, but sad to say those are plants that are dead.
However, I do believe we will have some color on our trees next month.
The air this time of year is most often refreshing and it always seems that people are happier in October…and maybe even a bit kinder.
Heat just brings out the worse in some.
So I desired to leave the heat behind with a little fun for the in-town grandchildren.
I purchased plain white plastic pumpkins at a nearby Michael’s store and we brought out the paint.
I always love to see what colors and combinations my grandchildren want to paint rocks or, in this case, pumpkins with.
This group included ages 3,5, and 7.
The youngest ended up with what we called the FROZEN pumpkin because the colors reminded all of us of Elsa and Anna
The oldest was the one who desired to mix different colors…always a fun experiment.
I do not know all of the colors she stirred together in this cup…I counted at least five and she created the best shade of green.
I seriously wish I had a top or accessory in that color.
Her green is here on the stem…it was a lovely shade.
We were out painting on a very warm day, so the pumpkins dried quickly and became their first fall decorations for their bedrooms.
If you are looking for a fun activity with grandchildren, I highly recommend this one.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: MORE FALL DECORATIONS
Our reader, Susan, sent this photo of her table decorations for fall!
I am sorry, Susan that the picture did not reproduce well, but your table looks lovely. Love the pumpkins!
Thanks for sending. Remember, ladies, if you want to share your decorations or recipes with us…just send to email@example.com.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: TIME FOR A REFILL
I get asked all of the time, if I still use the GENUCEL PRODUCTS for my complexion.
Yes, I do…right to the last drop in a jar. This one is almost out.
My complexion has been so happy since I began to use these products a few years ago.
I still use every day:
But, I am also doing some research right now on a new skincare line for me. I will report back soon.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: OCTOBERS PAST
Here is what I have looked like during past Octobers.
I still own this light burnt orange Talbot’s poncho and will wear it again this year.
But, if you want to see a few of my looks going forward for October 2023…then come back tomorrow and I will share three of what I will be seen wearing this month.
For right now, you can find more ponchos from Talbot’s by clicking this link: TALBOT’S PONCHOS
OK, friends….breathe deep…it is October, one of the most refreshing times of year…I hope you enjoy each moment. See you tomorrow.
