The last days of October

As a rule my daily walk doesn't vary much but today I had books to pick up at the library and since the sun was trying to shine I decided to walk there instead. On the way I passed houses all decorated for tomorrow!
It is amazing how much importance folks place on Halloween. For myself I don't care for it but the grandchildren have fun dressing up and trick or treating.

 Isn't that curled up cat cute?  I almost went to remove the bag of garbage before snapping the picture but decided I'd better not. Besides, I might have scared the cat away.

 First thing I did when I came home was put on the kettle for a pot of tea. The tea cup is Sweet Violets by Royal Albert, and is my favourite.
 This quilted bag is the one in which I carried my books ( and my camera) on my walk. I think of it as my "Granny Bag". I found it at a thrift store where so many of my treasures come from. That and garage sales.
I like that the two sides of the bag are of different fabric. It is home made and quite sturdy.

That was my day today, the second last day of October. The weather forecast is for showers moving in tonight. Those little witches and goblins are going to get wet tomorrow.  Take care,

  1. As always, I enjoy seeing what your daily routine includes. As I am home from work this week, I too sipped my tea but had no energy to start a new novel. But I decided to get rid of my fabric remnants and had already sorted them into three piles (garbage, rag bag, and thrift store) when I saw your picture of your pretty patchwork it's niggling at my creative conscience... this does not bode well for my resolution to eliminate the clutter in my closets :) I look forward to your next post.
