Hey friends! How was your week?
I’ve been a bit under the weather this week due to allergies from the almond harvest going on in our area right now. The dust from the harvest always bothers me, but this year it seems to be affecting me more than usual. I think it’s because I’m going through perimenopause which seems to aggravate any other health issues I have. Good times 🙄 But I’m feeling better today so I’m hoping to tackle some blog projects this weekend. Also we are expecting our first rain of the season on Monday which will help tamp down the dust. The first rain of the season is always a big deal here for that reason. It also means fall is coming, bringing cooler temperatures and all the cozy hygge goodness that comes with it – including less stuff in the air to aggravate my allergies.
Do you have harvests going on in your area right now? If so, what is being harvested? I do love the harvest season despite all the dust and I love to hear about what’s being harvested in other areas on our big blue marble.
Today is Friday the 13th and tonight will be the full harvest moon. Some believe this is a recipe for bad luck and people being extra crazy, but I believe it’s really what you decide to make of it (although I do think the full moon makes people a bit nuttier on average). The number 13 is considered lucky in a lot of cultures and it played heavily in the history of the US. And no one can deny that Friday the 13th makes for a great kick-off to the Halloween season. 🎃
Do you think Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck?

Link Party Rules:
The party rules are super simple! Link up your favorite DIY projects, decor projects, and crafts that are farmhouse style.* If it doesn’t fit into that description, please don’t link it up. Please, no food/recipe posts.
* I use the term “farmhouse style” loosely and I consider any projects, decor or crafts that would work in a farmhouse or any type of country styled home to be farmhouse style. You do not have to live in a farmhouse or it be your predominant style in order to share your projects here.
I don’t require you to link back to this party, but if you do, I would sure appreciate it! I also don’t require you visit or comment on other blogger’s linkups, but it’s always a nice way to share the bloggy love! By linking up, you will get a chance to be featured here at next week’s party and across my social media. If you pin anything from the party, please pin it from the original source.
By linking up to this party, you agree to give me permission to share your posts and pictures via social media and as features, roundups, etc. with a link back to your post or a link back to this party on the week your post was featured.
