Rocky Transitions - Or Not?

Flowers are still blooming although Fall is falling and falling fast. Seed pods juxtaposed with fresh snap dragons and mums-hot color for a cold day. And it did get cold here today, really cold with a wind chill. I have forgotten that feeling and it was a shock.

After 3 weeks of tomato sandwiches (summer food), a craving for fresh hot waffles with maple syrup (winter food)--mmmm, that was supper!

Yet another disemboweled mouse at the front door--Mariah has been busy. The mice are on the move, seeking warmer quarters for winter and she intercepts them as they head toward the human house. (just doin' my job, mom!)

And although I've reactivated my Entrecard advertising widget to accept ads's now been relocated down nearer the bottom of the side bar, as I had planned at the beginning of "the EC changes." I'm pleased by how many other ways I'm finding to stay connected, so now I see how this whole Entrecard bruhaha does have a silver lining! And I'm relaxed. And I don't feel compelled to drop 300 per day anymore. Changes, though sometimes rocky, are good for me.

One final plea for votes (shameless self promotion) as the "best in other" blog category has me neck and neck with the next contender...and there are only a couple of days left in September, and then it's over. If you can, head over here, and vote for "WillOaks Studio." Thank you!

I've been voting for you daily on the Best on Blogspot! You're now in the lead!!! Congrats! If you feel compelled, please click through and vote for my blog, too - I only need a few more to take the lead. Happy Fall!!!

it is kind of sad that the flowers will be done soon. i have enjoyed your photos immensely.

as far as entrecard is concerned i will keep my widget and continue dropping, but like you, don't feel compelled to drop like i was before. i am taking more time on each blog i visit to get to know the writer and make some more great friends like yourself.

i have voted for you, didn't know that you could vote every day though. so i am heading on over to vote again.

have a great day my friend...hugz!

The photograph is beautiful. It is finally cool here this morning. Around 68 degrees. Yesterday's high was 90 degrees.

As for Entrecard, I dumped it last night. I haven't dropped since they posted the new changes. I'm so done with them. What freedom I feel this morning.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

I'm with you about EntreCard; there are too many of you I'd miss if I drop it entirely. Gotta get the Tour Manager to move my widget down (among other things).

Going to vote again.

Ahh change is as good as a they say and it has served me well in my life. Well, most of the time.

Good luck, I voted

You now have my vote too! I enjoy the change in seasons and missed those changes when I lived in California. I bought some autumn-scented candles, logs for the fireplace and a new book. I'm ready!

I've been getting a lot of dead mice on the doorstep too latety - eeewwww..
Your flower photo is lovely.
We had a cold blustery day here too - change is on it's way:)

Ann said...

It's getting cold here also. It's been rainy all day as well. Makes me just want to crawl under a blanket. I cast my vote, you were in the lead when I was there. YEAH!

We are in that very strange period here where you need the heater just a little right before bed and first thing in the morning.

By afternoon you need the AC again. We will stay like this for at least another month.

I love your photo, your new floors are terrific and I refuse to look at the chocolate. I will gain 5lbs. with just a look.

Last but definitely not least of course I voted for you!! I am so pleased to see you have moved into 1st place!!

Everyone go and vote!! Have a good night!:-)
