The New Interior Design

You might remember my fall decorating post.
It contained the collection of gourds below.
Well, a new interior designer came to our house the other day.
Hint: He is starting his career at the ripe old age of 3 1/2.
Not sure how to define this new look, but hey, it works in my house.
At least I can be assured that no one else's house has the same decorations
as you can see at the Gibson house.

I LOVE Autumn

Being a Native Houstonian, I haven't experienced many "true" autumns except
the one year we went "leaf peeping" in the Northeast.
I am thoroughly enjoying the display of color this year.
These photos were taken from my front yard, looking up and down the street.
Thank you, God, for the beauty of Fall.

The Chosen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although I knew this book was historical FICTION when I was reading it, the author was so skilled that I found myself wondering if historians had acutally found the lost diaries of Queen Esther. Wonderful read--great insights.

Finally Fall!

It is finally Fall here in Colorado Springs.
The locals say that autumn is making a late arrival, but I have
thoroughly enjoyed the lengthy summer!
I must admit though that when I went out this morning
and it was rainy, and the trees were changing colors,
that autumn sneaked up and charmed me.
These pictures were not taken at the local
Farmer's Market, but from the display
on my coffee table.
Welcome Autumn!
I had an e-mail from a sweet friend the other day questioning
if everything was OK in my family. She said that
I hadn't posted on my blog since the middle of September
and she was worried.
Just in case others have wondered the same thing,
all is well! We are just super busy!
I have been in the Denver airport for the past 3 weekends
and will be there again this weekend flying
to Houston and to Las Angeles.
Busy, busy times but things should calm down
in November just in time for the holidays.
So, please don't give up on checking my blog.
I will return when life gets a little back to normal.
