But it’s still green around my ‘hood.
While I wait on leaves the color of hay
I can still decorate with pumpkins. YAY!”
I know that the calender says it’s officially fall, but it’s still as green as Kermit’s ass at my house. There are a few leaves starting to drift down, and the temperature is really nice these days, so I have hope that it’s right around the corner. The mums and pumpkins are all over the garden centers right now, so I’ve still got that Fall feelin’ whenever I step outside.
I should say that in actuality, I will never see these decorations because I never go out the front door of my house. I always use the garage door so my first view of my house is the junky pantry and laundry room. I should decorate in those rooms instead! Seriously, the only people who might see my front porch are the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the pizza delivery men. We don’t even get trick-or-treaters at our house because of our long and winding driveway.
Which means nobody will get to see my pretty pumpkin luminarias on the steps. Boo.
So you people out there in blogland better be appreciating my decorations, dangit, because you’re the only folks who will ever see them. And hopefully you won’t care that I couldn’t find anything exciting around my house to put inside my door bucket so I just tied a ribbon to it and left it empty.
And maybe, you won’t care that I didn’t trim my scraggly tea olive bushes back beside my front steps. They may be ugly, but they smell delicious right now!
Here, lemme crop them in just a bit so you don’t see them as much. Ahhh… that’s a little better.
Seeing these pictures all in a row really, REALLY makes me want to paint my front door a different color. Black, perhaps.
Do they make a mahogany veneer I can just slap up there? Cause that’d be excellent. I truly miss my old front door.
