It is a very Autumn day here at Honey Hill Farm....perfect for tucking inside and taking tea...bliss. I am perfectly suited for the fall as I love all things cozy and warm. Right now we have both woodstoves glowing, the kettle is whistling and a lovely bit of sunshine is peeking into my lace-covered windows.
Dearest and I are celebrating our 27th Wedding Anniversary today. Our kind-hearted children gave us a gift card to a nice restaurant in town and we will go out for supper. It will be fun to sit and reminisce about our lives together these past years.
I have been enjoying myself downstairs in my new craft/sewing room, organizing and refining it until I have what suits me best. I am finding that I need to work in there a little while and then move things around until the different workspaces flow seamlessly. I promise to post pictures as soon as I have everything "just so".
On Wednesday we went to our Darling Girl's adorable little nest and helped her hang up all her lovelies. She had a very heavy tapestry and a few other hard-to-hang items that needed her Dad's helping hand (and tools). She made us a delicious lunch of Stuffed Pasta (I will ask her for the recipe) and we just looked around and marvelled at all the wonderful touches she brings to each room. It is so charming and homey...a true delight for the senses.
Our Darling Boys are enjoying themselves as they experience living the bachelor/student life. Our oldest is "The Cook" and the youngest is the "Cleaner". They have some very funny stories to share each week when we gather together as a family on Sunday. (Oh yes, and laundry is "shared" too!)
Hmmmm, what else? Potted plants hastily brought inside to keep them from frostbite....every windowsill is inhabited, not to mention the tops of side tables. Summer furniture still in its place as we were caught quite off-guard with this early round of rain, snow and cold. The woodbox, now full, stands ready and waiting to assist us in keeping toasty warm.
So that is all the news from here on our little foothills homestead...I hope you are enjoying this bountiful Autumn and all its delights.
Yours so kindredly,
