ORC Linking Event Week 6!

While I am trying to pull my office together for the ORC Linking Event … and work on our kitchen in the whole #ProjectDownsize thing … Real Life took the starring Role!

So no Big Reveal for you this week.  
However, more importantly, I did enjoy the culmination of a 4 Year Challenge that Erin took on at Auburn University. We are so proud of her and all her accomplishments!  This is a challenge that I treasure more than any … watching and cheering on in the background … our children navigating life!

I would love for you to check in over the next few weeks!  My office will get done and even in its' halfway state I am feeling so much more organized!  My assorted piles are now able to reside in one room!

Do check all the progress of the other Linking participants  and the Group of 20 ORC participants.  Their Reveals are so fun and absolutely gorgeous!

And thank you Linda for continuing to push us to make progress in our homes!

Enjoying the moment while continuing my trek to …

One Room (or one Child) at a Time.



Cotton Pickin' Tuesday ...

 Significant for two reasons.  One, all day yesterday I couldn't keep straight that it was Monday not Tuesday.  Don's work schedule has been whacky and it has me totally screwed up as well.  

So ... here's the cotton pickin' part ... 

How lucky am I that I have a friend sweet enough to accept my weirdness and has enough spunk in herself to pick me some cotton!!

Part of what makes Fall for me is all the texture that nature gives.  Besides pumpkins, which I do love ... yes, even in their orange state!  I do love the white ones as well ... but let's not forget how I feel about orange.  I digress.

So Lynn travels this road almost daily as she heads to work.  
She has been giving me the scouting report.

Then, like all good crops ... picking time presented itself.  
She stopped, she picked, she packed and she delivered!

I have been delicately trying to get all the little "stuff" out of the cotton ... But then I poured myself a glass of wine.  Patience is not my strength. 
Guess I'll work on it a little more tonight! 

So when I say I have been pickin' cotton you'll know I am not telling a lie.  

I remember passing this "southern snow" in the fields driving to and from Auburn while I was in school.  It's truly amazing how the fields go on for what seems forever.

I know ... it still needs a little (LOT) of work ... but I knew you would appreciate it!

Oh yeah, and I picked these Montauk Daisies out of my garden last night ... supposed to get the kind of freeze this week that kills everything.  I might as well go ahead and enjoy them!

It's going to be a Real Tuesday ... all day!

It was a short week here, Tropical Storm Karen stopped my travel home from Auburn so I spent a lovely night at the Westin at the Atlanta Airport Sunday night ... with no suitcase.  Then up and at'em early Monday morning arriving here stinky and tired by 3 pm.  I survived the rush and thoroughly looking forward to Friday Night Cocktails!!
