Autumn Bouquet

Note: the lotus seed pod carries viable seeds (I'm sprouting a couple!)
Note #2:  the ornamental grass is Sea Oats that my friends brought back from their trip to the Outer Banks last week.
Word of warning: ornamental cabbage looks great in fall arrangements...but after a few days, there is a peculiar smell that casually starts to whiff!

Another Knit Skirt

 Can you have too many of these?  They're SO comfortable!  I have 1, 2, 3, and a couple of black ones. 
Nope, you can't have too many ; )

Pretty Linen

A lovely blue on white stitched table cloth.  For just $3 at the Goodwill - such happiness money can buy ; )

Free Range

Now that the vegetable garden is done for the season, the hens are allowed to free range.
This little boy is observing the eating habits of chickens.
They're such fat, fluffy little hens!
Chicken love.

Sunflower Soap

This soap is so creamy and smells lovely!  Now, washing my face is the favorite part of my morning routine.

Pot - pourri

Orange, water, and mulling spices in a pot.  Low heat on the stove.  A warm, spicy-citrus scent for the home.  Whenever someone comes in from outside they can't help but say, "Mmmm," as they take a deep breath.

The Stream

 A little bike ride to the stream for an hour of reading to the boys while they play with leaves in the water.  The streams at it's lowest this time of year and it's fun to watch the leaves wind their way through the rocks.

 I'm reading them the The Tale of Despereaux.  They love it and I'm enjoying reading it to them : )

Lost Kitten

A sad tale of a little black cat:

He was all black with big golden-yellow eyes.
We named him Blackie.  
He was so small, so thin, so hungry.
We set out some food and water.
We made him a nice bed in a wooden crate outside the back door.
He took up residence and enjoyed hunting the mice in the back yard.
Then, a couple of months after making our acquaintance, he died in his sleep.
A peaceful way to go.

It was nice to know you while you were here, Blackie.
