Living and Learning: The Week Ahead

In the Kitchen
I have been churning out autumnal foods:  stew, chicken pot pie, biscuits, apple cake, etc.  One thing that I haven't made yet is Alicia's sour cream apple pie.  I think that I will have to remedy that this week!

Have you seen the trailer for the new Murder on the Orient Express movie?

On My Bedside Table
I'm reading my way through the Thrush Green series.  They are such comforting stories, so I really relish my little visits to the Cotswolds.

Of General Interest
I spotted this video on a friend's Facebook page and was fascinated by it! 

In My Knitting Basket
I'm sure that you will not be surprised to find that I have yet to finish my grey Amelie sock.  Knitting it has been dragging on for such a long time, but the end is in sight:  two more repeats of the pattern and then it is on to the toe.  I can't wait to wear these socks!

Silver from 1866

I spent a little time today polishing silver from 1866.  My sisters and I inherited a few things from a beloved gentleman who we thought of as a grandfather.  It has been a joy to bring some of his treasures back to their former beauty.

Autumn's First Blush

 These rainy days have me convinced that autumn is really on her way.  There's a smidge of chill in the air and a tinge of color on the trees.

Rainy Wednesday

Today was another rainy day, so we spent a little time picking out fabric and sewing things for our daughter's next project.  Afterward we went to the bookstore to browse, eat pastries, and mediating arguments at the train table.

Waiting for Auntie Kate

 My darling sister and her little ones will be arriving today for a few days!  It is so hard to wait for them to get here!
