Getting Cozy




 The weather has been so gloomy here this week.  There has been rain every single day, which means that the kids are getting a little stir crazy.  I was very happy that there was a free clinic with a local college basketball team on Tuesday and that we're planning an ice skating outing tomorrow,  that should help our cabin fever.

I've been getting out our feather duvets, mittens, hats, etc. this week in preparation for the cold weather that we are going to have this weekend.  Our youngest son needed a new winter coat and all three children needed new slippers, so I've mail ordered everything and am looking forward to receiving those parcels in the mail.

Mellow Afternoons




This is the month of quiet days; of mellow afternoons in the ripening garden; of wood fires in chilly evenings."

Target Recovery




We're still in recovery mode after our busy, busy weekend.  Grandfather Bear is here for a few days and needed to replenish his stash of Mrs. Meyer's hand soap, so we did what sensible people would do, we went to Target.  Though I have been slow to get on the Magnolia/Joanna and Chip Gaines train, I was interested to see their Hearth and Hand collection at Target.  The display in our store was a bit smaller than some of the ones in more metropolis areas, but I was still very interested in what I saw.  

We also were able to take a turn around Barnes and Noble before heading home for lunch, and I picked up the latest UK Country Living and also a copy of Artful Blogging, which features an  article by Matushka Rebekah this month.  It's a feast for the eyes... just like her blog and Instagram feed!

Saint Michael's Day Costumes


We held our Saint Michel's Day party at church today.  Here's Saint Maria of Paris, Saint Kevin, and Saint Luke of Crimea.  They take this very seriously, as you can see!

Roses and Hops


I was thrilled to discover that I was fortunate enough to win a generous giveaway from Ridge Garden Wreaths last week.  This beauty landed on our porch today and it is an understatement to say that I love it!  Emmelia does an amazing job and I am so happy to have one of her creations in my home!
