Movies, movies, movies.

Catching up on some movies while home nursing my knee after surgery on Thursday. I'm doing quite well, but still need to ice and elevate. It seems I never have time to sit down and watch an entire movie, but I just watched five of them over the last three days. And loved them all! I had to pass on my thumbs up recommendations for all five of these...

A party at Stuart's is not complete without our favorite guest, her mannequin named Izzy. She was all dressed up and even had an advice book on hand for me!

Happy Autumn!

Before green apples blush,
Before green nuts embrown,
Why, one day in the country
Is worth a month in town...

I'm 50!

I turned 50 on Friday! This was one of my favorite birthday cards. It's from my daughter...she copied an old picture of us and decorated it. I love it!
Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been very busy working, house-sitting again and then birthday celebrating. I had my dad here visiting until yesterday. Now, I just have work and a few projects....and knee surgery coming up on Thursday. It's a relatively simple procedure and I should be up and about by Monday.
Enjoy our last day of summer today!

Hodge podge.

Maybe the last bunch of sunflowers from the garden.

Looking up at the Columbia Tower in Seattle today. And last night's sunset...
Have a great weekend everyone!
