A healing weekend


Spent most of my time in bed this weekend, healing from an outpatient procedure that
wore me out,
 but, feeling much better now.


Cocooned under my canopy ( above) I rested and read my newest Aunt Dimity series book,
Have you read any of Nancy Atherton's books take place in the Cotswold's of England?
link is here to her books: http://www.aunt-dimity.com/
When Krumpet, my yorkie, was not on the bed with me, he rested right where you see him here!


also added new items to my Shop, 
shameless promoting, yes.


looking out into my living room (above)  forced me to start thinking about dressing the room up for Fall... 


My homestead, (above) all dressed up.
looking forward to the holiday weekend. Have not dressed for the fall yet.
Have a great week.

What a lovely bedroom to get well in, the canopy is so pretty. I went over and looked at the series of books--I think it is something I would really enjoy.

So glad that you are feeling better. Also very happy that you had a beautiful place to rest in. The room is gorgeous! I pulled my Fall out the other day. Still pretty warm here, but the leaves have started to turn. So happy to have you share with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
