Quote of the Day

"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow
~ Author Unknown

It's a crisp Fall morning and just too nice to ruin it with talk of politics, 'idiocracy,' stuck on stupid actions or ranting.

Despite the cooler weather, I have what will probably be the last bloom of roses so I will trim them and bring the fragrant flowers inside to enjoy. They're always more fragrant in the fall, though I do not know why.

And this afternoon we'll be working on the Mobile Meals' Wine Gala live auction. Since 1994, we've volunteered our time and efforts for this fantastic organization and we truly love the fun of the event.

One of the highlights of the Gala is the live auction of fine, often rare, wines that have been donated for the event. My husband, Sam, and a couple of others from the committee, will arrange the various bottles into lots and then sort them into a good order for auctioning. I'll be creating the program that lists the lots along the way...

So with good wine and sun and crisp weather, no serious posts today ... Enjoy!

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
