Though we did not stay long in Fort Worth during the Thanksgiving holiday week but I was able to do some things I planned before driving over there. I met-up with friends and had a good time with them. Wednesday, my kids and I spent our day with Ofelia and her kids at Central Market play ground and had a small Thanksgiving dinner at her apartment, fed the ducks and did a quick shopping at the Filipino store nearby.
Thursday, I had lunch with friends from work before at Red Lobster Hulen. As usual, nice bonding and good time! It was soo nice to finally see them and interact face to face. Something I missed so much while living in the country. After that sumptuous lunch, we headed to the mall and went shopping with them.
My time spent with these people was so worth it and things went well as planned. Would love to see them again hopefully in Christmas.
I love to decorate especially in our new house. My husband once asked me why I wasn’t so keen on decorating our house in the city before. Well, simply because, it needs home improvement and a lot of things need to be done inside and if I decorate, I don’t want my job to be disturbed or moved just because he wants to fix something where my decors are. So for 7+ of living in our other house, all I could do was hang frames on the walls and a little touch of seasonal decors.
Here in the country, I bought quite a lot of decors. I want it to be homey and beautiful but not overwhelmingly decorated inside and outside. Here’s a few pictures of my Fall set up in the front porch.
You see, you don’t live in the country unless you have that wagon wheel, hay bales, rustic milk can and windmill decor.
… you know it’s Fall when mums starting to come out and give beautiful blooms of any color…
…. my table center piece, pumpkin tea set and acorn metal basket I’ve had for 3 years, I bought it from Goodwill in Fort Worth. Pine cones were gathered from the backyard.
…. scare crows from the last two years of having them as well as plug-in jack-0-lanterns.
