more info on what goes on here in McGilly World

Phew.. been a few days since I posted... just can't seem to find the time to really plan a post in my head. Seems like the ramblins have subsided and absurdly for me there's more organization and concentration going on. Spooky, non?
 
So ... lets talk Fall, why not? seeing as today is the official first day of the season. The season for beautiful rich colors wherever you look. Just bought a lovely pair of chocolate suede shoes.. mmmmm.. perfect for fall. Now I need to add a couple of things to my wardrobe to go with them. I genuinely thought I had more brown things but seems I've been hoarding the grays and pink/purples lately. Ho hum... need to buy some new clothes gosh darn it. I wish I was thinner it would make the whole process more fun, I promised myself I would work on that.... and I will.
 
Although the leaves are starting to fall here in South GA it is still very hot. It makes it hard to know what to wear and look appropriate... I mean... there's a law against white after labor day but honestly it's still very wearable in this heat. Southern Belle's turn into the meanest bitches when it comes to the laws of what not to wear... they still completely abide by no open toe shoes between this day and that... no white after labor day.. you better switch to autumnal colors and padded vests at this time of year and please don't sweat... only glistening is allowed. WHATEVAH!!!!!! It's a million degrees and my toes need some air.. those padded vests (waistcoats for my Euro readers) are good for three weeks in January and that's it as far as I'm concerned. Don't even look at me in that tone of voice... it's hot...I don't care and you can save your "bless her heart" for someone else.
 
One of the most wonderful and interesting things that happens here in the fall is the cotton harvesting. I'm lucky enough to drive a very rural road home each evening and see the heavy farm equipment out there stripping the cotton plants and all that white, fluffy cotton gets packed into the huge "bundles". There's cotton all over the side of the road, it hasn't rained for weeks so the tractors are kickin' up dust and it's a magnificent site to see them in the fields... oh I love it!!!! Must be a country girl at heart. Keep thinking that I'm gonna see Kenny Chesney out there one day with his bronzed muscles shining in the sun!!! Whoa there Nelly.... I really don't even think he's attractive!!  Anyhooo... if I had the courage I'd stop and get some pictures but somehow I feel I would look a little odd in my professional office get up snapping away. I don't know... I just think it would be weird, right? 
 
I did stop and take these pics a couple of weeks ago, and it was weird. So you'll just have to make do and imagine the rest.




 
I am supposed to be posting a Corner View today... and seeing as for some reason I totally don't know what the theme is... I'm making fall and harvesting my theme today... rebelious of me to use CV for my own ends but there you go. I will get back in line next week and be a good CVer I promise!   I will be checking out the others I just had to get this down first... ass backwards as usual.... come back and see me y'hear!!!!

I don't go by the fashion rules when the weather isn't cooperating, either. I'm from New Orleans and lived there up until 5 years ago. Let me tell you, I'd wear linen and sandals about 9 months out of the year! And shorts on Thanksgiving!

p.s. your photos are incredible, again!
