The below is a post from last September ( when none of you knew me from a hole in the head! )
So last night I crept out in the dark of the night and started snipping away and thought ( this feels vaguely familiar ) so I'm reposting ( and adding a few photos from last nights criminal activity )
And by the way, I know I am the only one in blogland that feels this way but I DON'T LIKE AUTUMN, at all - it's too close for winter for me - and it represents an ending in my mind - it's my least favourite season - so maybe that's why I'm content to not spend any money on decorating for it lol
And I'm free, and I'm free falling...........................
John is in Europe this week - and I was just too lazy to walk down to the market to get my flowers ( even
though I did walk to my hairdressers and back - which was about 7 miles in total - very very proud of myself!!!! )
So I decided to steal from my garden - this is my first attempt at drying hydrangeas - I am in love - the different shades look soooo pretty - I think these will stay for a long time,
And I say steal because it is in fact what I have done - my neighbour split in with us to purchase these plants so technically they are only half mine - I literally went out in the middle of the night in my housecoat with snippers.................and because it was the middle of the night there were slugs on them, ughhhhh.
I had already bought 4 dried hydrangeas - so only added to what I already have.
Am I completely nuts?
Yep, that would be me
and if that were not enough I ran back out again and cut these from a bush that we just planted ( and of which the costs were also shared )
Is it ok to commit an act of petty theft if it makes your heart happy, lol
I even had the thought of taking snippers when I take Soda out for her walk late at night
and snipping here and there, can you imagine? Would that make her an accomplice?
My new best friend ( power to the people my friends )
If you see me walking around your neighbourhood - be careful, be very very careful.
Do you think I could actually blame Soda? Hmmm, she looks a little guilty to me

Walk like an angel even bark like an angel
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
........................Tell it to the judge, lady.
So now on to this year - I was a little braver last night ( or the bush has grown since then - because last night's bounty brought me this

EVEN MY SCREEN SAVER WAS STAGED FOR FALL
oh and what's that I see peeking out over the tree tops?
It's the file for Danni's " stuffed acorn squash " - told you I was saving this one to try Danni!!!
You can find the recipe HERE - and here's what sold me! Doesn't it look fabulous?
And that is how I managed to get some Free Falling done around the house -
NOT A PENNY - except maybe a day or two in jail if I'm ever caught and even then I would blame Soda - sorry sweetheart I love you, but................................
I have a feeling no one would be able to identify you anyway
