Weekending.








Oh, Autumn.

I apologize if you guys are getting sick of these photos. It’s such a fleeting season that I never really get tired of them. I feel like you really can take too many pictures of flowers, but turning leaves? It’d take a swallowing sea of them for me to grow weary of their beauty.

How was your weekend?

Gratitude Sunday







Another week, another list of gratitudes.
Join in Gratitude Sunday with Taryn and others over at Wooly Moss Roots.

Sitting around a fire with my family. (And the dog and the cat. And hot cocoa and apple pie!)
Pizza lunch date with my Mom.
Fitting in an evening walk most nights.
Finding some of last year’s pumpkin in the freezer and baking with it.
That my loved ones feel they can lean on me. And do.
The bottle of blue dye I found in the basement.
Which led me to completing a long put off project.
For all the human body can endure.
Good friends joining us for dinner.
That amazing autumn light.

What are YOU grateful for this week?

Weekending.


I had an insanely lovely weekend. Let’s see: I went for a walk.

Because Saturday was beautiful.




Fell in love with autumn all over again.

Saw a deer on the way home.

Lit a fire.


Started a little fall cleaning in my studio!

Ate a wonderful Sunday dinner, including fried (homegrown) potatoes with fresh rosemary. On the grill.

I ate meat. For the first time in seven years.

Made two pies. (Recipe soon!)

(The above photos show one of my very first sewn projects. A little flag trivet. It’s completely hand stitched. And those apples are called Jonamacs. Quite tasty.)

Autumn Approaching

Gems.
Mums.
Milk House.
To the East.
Blueberry Leaf.
Support.
Setting Sun
Just a few snaps taken on Sunday.

On a side note: I have an overwhelming urge to bake. I’m thinking of an Irish apple cake. Or blueberry muffins. Maybe some cornbread.

What about you? Does approaching autumn make you want to bake? Do you have any great recipe suggestions?

Garden Update

Garden Haul
There really isn’t anything new or exciting to mention in regards to the garden. Lots and lots of beans. Peppers. A few radishes. A few tomatoes.

Garden Girl.
Sometimes, I fear my outfit posts are a little deceptive. I tend to take photos when I get dolled up (which is when I go into town or just feel like fancying up my day a little—and have the time and energy to do so.) This is closer to what I look like most days. Jeans and a t-shirt. Hair up and frizzing out like crazy. Glasses on. Bean leaves embellishing my shirt. Muddy boots. Sporting really poor posture. Exhausted but content. Same old, same old.

Corn

Corn
We bought about 100 ears of corn and did that up for freezing on Friday night.

Mum
All the mums around here are looking lovely. I must say, they are quickly becoming a favorite flower of mine.

What have you been growing?

(Head over to Homesprout to see what others are hauling from their garden! Or add your photo to the flickr pool to join in.)

Gratitude Sunday


I feel like I am getting back to the regular blogging swing now. I have some posts planned (mostly old ones I never got around to sharing.) I’m finding blogging is beneficial to me. I really appreciate being able to let go of all this here, put it out there, share it. And the icing on the cake? That a handful of folks are actually interested in reading my ramblings and seeing my photos. Thank you.

Speaking of appreciation:

I recently came across Gratitude Sunday and decided to participate. It’s easy to focus on the negative. But really, I (and many of us—if you can read this, if you have access to a luxury like a computer and internet connection, you’re better off than many folks in the world) are lucky creatures. I need to realize this more, acknowledge it more.

We have been going through a lot in this house lately. It seems each of us is fighting a personal battle and then on top of that, a couple weeks ago, we got word that our lives would change and our security here was put into question. We are heading into new waters: it might be rough or it might be smooth sailing. But we’ve got each other. This little unit of five. Always.

I need to start focusing on all I have to be grateful for. This weekly recognition and declaration of gratitude here could help.

This week I am grateful for:

-A successful garden and a freezer packed with food. (We are actually on the lookout for second cheap/used chest freezer.)



-Tasty (homegrown) dinners. Especially when eaten outside. (Roasted green beans and onions, sauteed zucchini and summer squash, beets, and fresh ginger tea.)

-Music. I know that a pretty broad thing but it’s so important to me. There is little else that makes me feel safe and sound than getting lost in some tunes. (Most recent find: Of Monsters and Men)

Autumn
-To live in a four seasons clime. (That is on the cusp of my favorite season of all.)

-Receiving hugs. Lots and lots of them. (Especially when the hugger doesn’t mind dropping what they are doing to give one.)

Barn
-Remembering my family’s past here and hoping for it’s future.

Texture
-Textures and light.

What are YOU grateful for this week?
