My view of the lake through sun room windows is much improved today. Hubby and I spent some time yesterday working on them. All the spider webs and their attachments--dead mayfly remnants and small crumpled up leaves -- have been brushed and washed away. The sills have also been wire brushed, scraped, vacuumed and received fresh coats of stain/sealer. I am hoping the spiders are done for the season--but that is probably premature. I keep checking for a first frost date, so far it is not predicted. All it takes is the right cold front.
Hubby's jolokias are still producing heaps of 'too hot for me' peppers, and many of my plants are going to seed. I am planning to put some seed packets in my Etsy shop for sale, just need to get out there and get some fresh seeds and make some drawings to print on seed packages.
Much to do this week-- two wedding cake toppers need finishing up by Thursday so they can ship this week. One grand-daughter needs to go to story time tomorrow. I have all kinds of things just plopped in the guest room that I really want to find better homes for. Fall Cleaning continues in spurts.
The lake is lovely today. I see we have been 'gifted' by the current with a couple of new balls. No doubt Mojo will jump in and retrieve those if they do not drift off soon. He loves to fetch objects from the water.
I am sipping my coffee here, getting a late start to the day and the work week since Hubby had a 3 day weekend. Always a welcome interruption--but it does get me off track on the projects I'm working on.
Well That's about it. Have a happy Pokeberry Autumn Day!

My wedding work picked up this month- which is great because I messed up by being too busy in May and June to really market anything--so I think I probably lost some sales.
I've been stumbling into to some new ideas and have decided to make some changes. I have decided to start making designs that use a thinner wood to make it easier on me, my saw is not 'top of the line' so it can be difficult to control on thicker wood pieces.
Here are some of my first designs using thin poplar. These turned out so cute, I love them. I'm staying busy, having fun with art and settling into what looks like an early fall here.
Well I will say more later.
Have a great pokeberry evening and have you noticed the sun is moving? The season is changing. :)
