Monday This and That
Here at Ground Control ...

On this day in September ...

In the Garden ...


Green tomatoes smell just like September to me.

On the Menu Tonight:

Meatloaf, baked potatoes with broccoli and cheese, butternut squash and corn muffins.

Today's Weather

Sunny and dry, near 70. I love that it's a bit darker in the evenings now ... I feel my hibernation instincts kicking in. :)

Working on:

An activity plan for the "Fall Kickoff" of Nature Club on Thursday - we have 27 children coming! Here, at my house! In my yard! Lol, I'm thrilled to have so much interest in Nature Study Club - hoping it will be a great year!

Excited About:

New natural markers and paints for Earlybird that arrived in the mail ... a coffee date with girlfriends next week ... a new Sherlock series coming to PBS this fall ... and my new fall pocketbook from LL Bean!

On Hold at the Library:

Handmade Home by the inspiring Amanda Soule.


Our dear cat Penny who passed away on this day last year ... 

Watching with Earlybird:

Animal Atlas Creepy Creatures

He watches the first segment for like, 10 minutes, then runs from the room exclaiming "I don't like spiders!" Still, he insists on watching it, lol.

A Post from my Past: 

Autumn Housekeeping Notes

Well, I hope this Tuesday morning post finds you, dear readers, in good health and great spirit ... Enjoy this lovely day and see you all again soon. :)
