I am so EXCITED About TOMORROW!!!! Only A Wake up Away!!!

As August comes to a close, I am so excited about tomorrow!
Louis Dean and I woke up this morning fully aware that it is the very last day of August!
In my mind it is the last day of summer!
We made it to church on time this morning for the service.
Never mind that we MEANT to be there for Sunday School.
After church we stopped by Quadville (since we were only 5 minutes away!) to see everyone.
Home for a nap and then I was up preparing for tomorrow!!!

There is fresh candy corn in the candy dishes on the living room coffee table!

This was last year's dining room table centerpiece.
This year it will live in the living room.

Louis Dean requested that I NOT hang wreaths (debris) on the doll cabinets this year.
Okay!!! I won't just because he is so good about all the other debris around here!

The corner of the living room is all ready!
The stereo will be blaring out Neil Diamond music in the morning!

All dressed up for FALL!!!

THIS is Louis Dean's favorite room.
Probably because of his doll cabinet and collection.
I usually sit in the cream chair and he sits on the sofa and we end so many of our days here.
So while I was doing MY thing - what was Louis Dean doing?

He's been up in the attic for the last two days working on some electrical outlets and switches in my bathroom. 

This is our 'Family' wall.
Lots of history on it.

I put out ALL the fall! Pilgrims included!

I found this last month at a Goodwill!

I hope to replace these pumpkins with REAL ones soon.
The day I see REAL pumpkins in the stores is always a HAPPY time!!!

The dining room is dressed and ready for dinner!

A  fall dining room with a winter scene and a Santa on the easel.

Moving into the sewing room.......

the view from our gazebo.
I KNOW!!! I have a LOT of DEBRIS!!!

And on out to the gazebo which is where Louis Dean and I are now as I write.

The tablecloth and and owl were birthday gifts from my sister, Nita, in 2012.

We LOVE our gazebo!!
I sit on the left and he sits to the right.
I am blogging from the white rocker on the right.
Yes, it is 86 degrees at 11:00 at night. Still - I feel the hint of FALL in the air!!!

Celebrating the very LAST day of August!!!!
