Autumn Inspiration

We are sick. Again. It feels like this happens every October, and I really dread it. But I'm trying to stay positive, so I'll focus on the things that October brings that I enjoy:

Pumpkins.

Sumptuous moss.

Jewel toned leaves.

Raindrops suspended in webs.

Apples.

Flannel sheets.

Looking inward

Knitting.

Soup.





Really it's a longer list than any reader would have the attention for. But it's good to remember a few of them when I'm feeling lonely from our quarantine.
Bronwyn and I went out for some air yesterday. There was a break in the rain and we really needed to breathe. We didn't go far, but even around our house we saw many of the lovely things that I love this time of year. I don't have the energy for creating right now, so I'll share with you some pictures that I took on our walk.

Thanks! I'm on the mend, but my little punkin' is just in the thick of it. Poor dear.

You're such a good mom. All my little ones are out on their own and I miss those times of taking care of their down times. So hard to comfort long distance :-) On the other hand, when they grow up they share great things for when Mom is feeling down. Rachel just gave me a wonderful African Peanut Soup recipe which may possibly be the best soup I've ever tasted. Or maybe it was because she was here visiting and made it for us :-) Hope your little one is better soon!

I LOVE African Peanut soup! And I have to say that soup and coffee *almost* always tastes better when made for you by a loved one...all that good ju-ju just makes it so much better.

Thanks for the lovely comments, my friends, It really lifts me up.
