AAM Monday : Project Life Week 40

Getting into the fall spirit here even though this week started out pretty warm. I got the decorations out and added just enough for me.  The Costco pie just keeps on giving especially as I'm the only one eating it. And while those orange globes on my printer look like mini punkins they'r some tangerines. Yummy! esp with a square of chocolate.

I wonder how long it will take them to do whatever they plan to do to our Navy water tower. It's a real symbol of Annapolis for me.

Five on Friday: October 21, 2016

This week the five are 5 books I've recently read. Until I saw them together, I hadn't realized how much they seem to be in the same color family. I'm so done with summer maybe this is my need for a real autumn. Now.

Have you read anything interesting lately? My short reviews for all of these can be found on Goodreads. Have a great weekend!

TBT: 1971 My Mother's Escape

I'm thinking this photo was taken in 1971. Long ago, eh? My mother worked hard at a job she didn't like that much but a job she needed. There were things like the mortgage and food and expenses  for my Nana who lived with her and my father.  This hill in the backyard was quite a project for her but it gave her a needed relaxation after those hours in Washington DC, in an office next to the parking lot of the beautiful government building, a parking lot that often had vans waiting and filling her office with exhaust fumes. 

The garden was her escape.
