A Beautiful Autumn Day

It was an absolutely beautiful Autumn day!
I cleaned today...vacuumed furniture, moved it, mopped you know the whole shebang!  
I had the windows and patio door open.  
I was waiting for some floors to dry so I took a break.
I got a cup of coffee and the telephone and went outside to sit and call my mom. 
While we were talking, I had a visitor on my raggy looking marigolds.  
I tried to get behind it but, it flew off.
He should have migrated a while ago I think.  
I met Bob for lunch and we went to a restaurant with outdoor patio dining.  
We ate out side because it was so perfect.
I did some Halloween decorating. 
I have too much Halloween stuff and not enough wall space.

 I just could decide which picture. 
I used them all.  
Without the flash
 With the flash
 I made a really excellent dinner tonight too.
A couple of weeks ago I thought that I should make short ribs.
I needed a recipe.
I found one on the Williams-Sonoma website.  
I altered the recipe a little. 
 Instead of broiling them, I browned them in olive oil. 
I also could only get boneless short ribs. 
When they were done, I deglazed the pan with some of the home brewed stout I used.
It was absolutely amazing!
This would be a really great dead of winter meal.  
For dessert, I made a Dutch Apple Cake that one of my FB friends had shared.  
Dutch Apple Cake haven't tried it yet.  
We will have it during Grey's Anatomy.
 The latest update picture of Bittersweet September.
I realized I used the wrong color on the berries (?).
I ripped it all out and re-stitched them today.
Looking forward to doing some stitching this weekend.
I don't have to mess with apples and Bob is planning on sitting in a tree and bow hunting.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for the comments!
I look forward to hearing from you.  
Keep on Stitching
