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!
