Baby Mele showing her true colors! I cried when I looked this up and posted it. That's Frank, my second husband who's old sweats she is trying hard to shred. She was a gift from him for Christmas. Thus the name..."Mele Kalikimuka." I hope I got that spelled right. Its been a long time since I have written it out. She is registered under that name. It means Merry Christmas in Hawaiian.
And Mele today trying out my new wicker furniture on the patio... At times like this I wish I had the stretch minima so you could see her lovely coat better. It drags the ground..and takes brushing at least every other day. In the mornings she comes in all damp from the morning dew. I love her!
I am so proud of her coat...I think I have "coat envy"
I added a couple of wicker chairs, a little table and an umbrella that was on sale at PierI Imports.
I brought out my little rooster lamp for a bit of soft evening light...wrapped the swing in a more Fall like quilt...and I'm just getting started...
Notice the little hanging froggie? He bounces on and on and on when you pull him... :) A bit of whimsy.
Changing things for Fall. In California we can sit out here all year long. I will add a couple of lap robes...some hot chocolate or a mug of coffee..and we are all set.
Oh...and the fire pit. But..that's for LATE Fall use...if we are lucky! I also have East Coast envy!
I guess I am a little melancholy tonight..I get like that when I go through and look at pictures. I don't think grieving ever ends...not really.
It was a beautiful day again today. Perfect weather. Howard weeded and I clipped and played with the patio. I'm happy. I really am. Just lots going on right now. :) Fall is on it's way..my favorite time is just around the corner..and I can feel the joy when I think about it. Can't you? Of course you can! So...bring on the candy corn...I'm ready!!
Many hugs and lots of love to you...
