On my mind Monday October thoughts

On my mind this Monday October thoughts.  Do you believe it’s already October.  Time to get ready for Halloween and to vegg out with football, beer and food on Sundays.  I really do enjoy the fall in the northeast the leaves changing colors.  The crisp cool days when good hair can really shine.  But closing up the pool in our yard was a hard day.  My favorite thing in this apartment is that pool.  I will be anxouilsy awaiting mother’s day when me and my neighbors will be opening it back up.  My neighbor likes to jump in as her mother’s day ritual.  I do not partake {in such craziness} as I only go in pools when its 80 degrees or more.  So now that all my free time is not being spent in the pool.  Here’s what I plan on working on and sharing with you all this month.


I’ve already started my fall décor.


And now it’s time to kick it up a notch by adding Halloween stuff.  This is one of my favorite decorating month.  Here’s a look at some of the stuff I have done in my previous homes.

Getting this apartment Halloween ready will be at the top of the agenda for this week.  As well as revamping some end tables I picked up whiles thrifting.  You can see the tables this week in Thrift Share Thursday no 47  Because bulk garbage in my town is this week I will be throwing out the old end tables I’m using which will make this project giddy up.

So what are you working on this month?

    It is with great sorrow to close up the pool, I am sure. I like your kick in the butt attitude to get going on fall decor.

  3. That welcome sign is so cute. 🙂 It’s that time of the year again, I think I really need to get those Halloween decorations up today.
