I have the blues.. and periwinkles

Thunder rolls across the sky, the lightening past now.  I heard the Splat on the roof and enjoyed the sounds of a Fall Storm rolling in.

A harder pitter patter now. Falling on the roof, washing away the hot Summer and filling my heart with joy. A refreshing sound, have you ever stopped to wonder why ?

It’s amazing how a simple sound can wash your mind as well.. a cleansing of sorts.

Well... my lovely thoughts are now interrupted by thuds of hail.. goodness. We really need the rain , but hail ?  Really ?

We do need the Rain, so I will enjoy it, hail and all.  Hopefully it is bringing a true  Fall to our part of the country.  We have endured a long, hot Summer-  So, bring it on. 
Beautiful dark blue gray evenings... clear, blue skies in the mornings,
blue-purple flowers growing in the fields... I love those colors ! 

Now, I feel like it is really time to buckle down and start on some of those projects I have put off, probably like for the fourth, or fifth, or sixth time now.

Painting, more painting,  Christmas crafts.  My office, painting my Vintage church pew in the kitchen. 

The list is endless, so I will listen intently to the storm and relax- preparing mentally to tackle the long, long list and enjoy the Fall. 
 Really enjoy the Fall. 
My favorite season of the entire year. 

Sure sounds wonderful !  I feel the smile on my face spreading to my heart . . . . . . 

Here is a sneak peek at some of the colors in my kitchen and what I am considering.. Next time the church pew will have more color. Still contemplating just exactly what shade to wash it. 

Hydrangeas in a galvanized tin grace the floor.
