I've been slowly cleaning my way through the house these past few days in preparation for a visit from dear friends this weekend. As I tidy, I've been tucking little autumnal hints into nooks and crannies around our home. I was so happy to find a pretty beeswax candle in the shape of a pumpkin in our local health food store on Saturday afternoon. It's a cheerful addition to our table and I'm looking forward to the next rainy day to light it for the first time. I only have a little more cleaning and a bit of cooking to do tomorrow before our friends arrive and then the weekend can begin! It will be fun to show them some of our favorite spots around here!
