It's been so long since I've posted. I guess you could say I've been busy getting ready for Fall. Some mornings it does feel like Fall here and I am so looking forward to it. First, I've changed my mantle to put me in the mood and I've also started burning my "pie" candles. You know the ones that smell like pumpkin, spices, and apples. I've done some more things around the house too but I'll have to post them later. I'm also going to take some pictures of my sister's house and my Mama's and my niece's house. They all have very pretty houses and we have all been in the mood to start decorating for Fall. Today I'm participating in Met Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch. I'm so excited to see what others have changed to get ready for the new season.

I'm participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. I don't know where everyone else lives but it's been soooooooo hot here in North Carolina this week. I mean 95 and 100 degree days. Anyway, our Pro Football team here is called the Carolina Panthers and they have their training camp this week. Hubby and Travis went to it Monday and they said it was so hot that they didn't know how they practiced. Can you imagine practicing in that heat with all that equipment on? I would pass out. Travis had his picture made with Coach Fox and our quarterback, Jack Delhomme. The teams owner, Jerry Richardson, who used to be an NFL player himself, was also there, but he just had a heart transplant not long ago and he rode around in a golf cart. These are just some action shots that they took. Please visit Susan for more outdoor pics.

Today is Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Please visit her for more make-overs. Hubby just finished painting my front door red and I love it. He started painting it one morning while I was at work and didn't take a picture of it before he started. I do blame myself because he would have never thought to do that. Anyway, I searched through my pictures and found one last year when it snowed and I tried to zoom in so you can kinda see how the door looked before, but it wouldn't let me do it for some reason. So if you click on the picture, you can see a close up. It was stained and the storm door was also stained, which I took it down all together. I might get me a white storm door but for right now, I am enjoying it just like it is.

I know that Summer is not yet over, but Fall and Winter are my favorite times of the year. My favorite store, Jerry's, have started getting their Fall items in and I bought this picture there that I have been looking at for months. It's fairly large and it was hard to get a good shot of it since it's in a hallway, but hopefully you can see it pretty good. There's snow on the ground and it's nice to look at when it's 90 degrees outside. I've started decorating a little bit for fall already by burning some of my candles that smell like fall. I can't wait for it to get cooler so I can put the rest of my decorations out. If you live nearby, please go check out Jerry's because they have the BEST stuff and the BEST prices around. Here is a picture of the unwilling-not-wanting-their-pictures-taken owners. They didn't want their pictures made but I insisted, especially after I knocked something off up there today and broke it. It was the least they could do for me since I felt so bad. It is Judy (Jerry's Mama), Jerry and his wife, Penny. Aren't they all cute as can be????

I know I blogged about our new Police Dodge Charger a few months ago and how proud all of the officers are with it. Well this week we got another new one and its even bigger. It's a 2008 Tahoe that one of our Sergeants will be driving. The wonderful thing is, both of them were bought with drug money from previous arrests. Taxpayers didn't have to pay anything for them. It pays to be on top of their job.

I got the pleasure this weekend of meeting one of my blogging friends in person. Well, I call her my friend, even though we have never met, but I do follow her blog, therefore I consider her my friend. She has a cute little shop not far from my house in a town called Pilot Mountain, here in North Carolina. The name of her store is Pilot Mountain Peddlers. If it sounds familiar, you might recognize it from the Andy Griffith Show as Mt. Pilot. Andy grew up not far from there in Mount Airy, NC. Anyway, I'm getting sidetracked. Her name is Tammy and she is just the sweetest person. Me, Mama and Tina went there this weekend and she has really cute stuff. If anyone lives near by you should definitely go visit her. The name of her blog is Pilot Mountain Peddlers. Please stop by for a visit. These are just a few items that I purchased there. The cabinet, the candle, the picture on top of the cabinet and the little picnic basket inside. Also the black shelf that I'm using for a candle holder.
