Almost Autumn...


Today was just beautiful!  Though it wasn't sunny, the air was crisp and cool.  The little ones contentedly played outside for three hours while I alternated doing a little yard work and a little paperwork on the porch swing.  We have an abundance of rocks on our property and the children were trying to move big ones by various methods, pound medium ones to see if they could be broken, and pulverize the smaller rocks that they found, mixing the rock dust with water.  It felt good to be able to just let them do what they wanted rather than hustle them along on errands or occupy themselves inside while I raced around like a mad woman!

I'm starting to think about stocking the pantry with hot chocolate, tea, and apples and the fridge with cider, cheddar cheese and other delectable autumn goodies.  I can't wait to bake an apple pie!  I just decided what I am going to bring to the house blessing on Sunday:  a potted mum and pretty pumpkins for their stoop!  What do you think?

Fall is truly in the air here too! It make me feel so creative! I have a whole list of things I want to sew, knit, and bake! Pumpkins and a nice mum would make a lovely house blessing gift!

Perfect house blessing gift! Thanks for the glimpse of fall. We're still wading through summer weather--warm days and so much sun, but are hopeful that we'll be out of sandals soon!

So glad you had such a relaxing day. Your children are blessed to have you as their mama...

I love autumn! I bought hot cocoa the last night I went to the grocery store :)
