Fall is in the air

Like many of my Florida transplant friends, I am antsy for fall. I love the color, the crispness in the air and the crunch of leaves under my feet.
Every fall we try to get back to St. Louis. We celebrate my mother-in-laws birthday, hang out with our pals and go on the annual wine tour. Balducci's winery is perched on the tip top of one of the many hills in Mo.'s Wine Country. The barn is the center piece and we have placed blankets on the ground, chilled with an assortment of wines and tasty treats and listened to some great jazz there many a Sat. afternoon. If our house does not sell, we will console ourselves with a trip back home wedged inbetween a crop I am signed up for in Sarasota and a weekend retreat both during the month of Oct.
We have a couple of buyers coming through at ten this morning and an open house (our last for this year) with a full color ad Oct. 7th. If nothing occurs by the 20th. of Oct. we will take the house off the market until Season arrives and with it potential Snow Bird buyers. We will have to give up the new house if we do this but we both recognize from time to time we can't always have things our way! This doesn't mean we have given up on moving....just moving now.
Off to pick up...sure wish the wall paper had come in sooner so the dinning room was done. Oh well! Have a great day all. Posted by Picasa

Oh Jules i hear some sadness in your voice. I am sorry, I was so sure it would be sold by now. Love the picture... looks like a great place for a crop!!

sending good vibes, and prayers to you today. Hopefully, someone who needs a house ASAP will come in and just buy it! I will be praying to the house selling gods for you.
