Jane Kenyon's poetry was recommended to me this weekend and I was able to read a little of her work in Otherwise, a collection of her poems that were published posthumously. Often, her poems are about domestic life and nature and I look forward to enjoying more of her work.
In the Garden
For the next few weeks, the children and I are planning to choose different daffodil bulbs on our weekly shopping trip for planting in November. We have two or three varieties that we planted last autumn and are hoping to add a few more. Spring will be glorious at the rectory. We chose a package of 20 bulbs of Daffodil Replete for this week's selection.
I very much enjoyed watching Arthur and George on Masterpiece these past three weeks. It was a bit suspenseful, but very enjoyable. Though the first season is already complete, the three episodes can be viewed on the Masterpiece website for the time being.
Kitchen, Pantry, Table
Last week, Ina Garten posted her favorite recipes for bar cookies on her Facebook page last week. I made blondies last Tuesday and plan to try her brownie recipe this week. You can never go wrong with Ina!
It's almost apple time in our neck of the woods. We take a trip to an orchard not far from our home for u-pick apples, the most delicious apple cider doughnuts, and a fun autumn festival with children's activities. We look forward to going every year!
