Door Knob Conundrum

I have had a nutty busy week racing around and dealing wih life.   Yesterday I went to let the dog out and the back door knob was so looose it nearly came off in my hand.  Not good.

I made an execuitive decision to replace the sucker.  Off to the home store I ran.

No endorsements for any particular brand frome me.  I oicked this black Weiser deal becuase it felt solid abd I love leavers.

The knob has an adjuatble latch that fits different hole set backs which makes it super easy to install.  This was a super easy diy job.  It took me less than an hour including the run to the homw store.

It feels so nice to open the door with this baby.  It looks nice too!

October Rose

Well, its that time of year again when I start to question myself.  Clearly I am not the only one.  

The days get shorter and it starts to get darker earlier and earlier.

The garden starts to look a little worse for wear.

Then one day you wake up and find this staring back at you.  Roses in October in Canada are a RARE treat!

Is that not the very definition of yellow October rose perfection!  I planted it this spring and its bloomed pretty much continually since I planted it.  I hope it makes it through the winter.  Its SO pretty and cheery!  I have been scared of planting roses because I am intimidated by them, thinking they need the care of someone with a green thumb.  Shhh don't tell my pretty rose!
