All clean, decorated and ready for company!

The house is all clean after the summer avoidance! I always scrub it all down before I decorate and when you have company coming, well, you just have to clean, clean, clean! I do have to admit that I don't enjoy housework like I used to. I guess that's OK considering all the years I've put into that chore.
Jim is in Illinois helping his family with his 93 year old mother, so it will just be us girls when my friend arrives tonight. Her flight lands around 6 PM in the Rose City and we will have almost a week to just play and craft our brains out (my friend Nancy's favorite saying).
I have to get some groceries and bake us some pumpkin scones. How does a nice cup of hot spiced cider sound? The weather has turned wet and chilly, but the sun will return tomorrow and it looks like some perfect fall days ahead! I love autumn.

Sounds like a lovely and warm welcome for a friend - and some fun redecorating for the season! Wish I could admit to the scrubbing down before changing out the decor - but I don't always do that. Too eager to get everything up!! Have a grand time!
