Leah, Caleb and Will were part of the chorale. What a joy it was to hear these beautiful songs they've been practicing, now full, all the voices lifted in harmony.

We're having some sickie days here.
Poor little Rosie has the worst of it, but she's been a great sport.
Cooking episodes are the comfort-viewing of choice.
We have had our first coldish days. I am so thankful for my new woodstove! I've delighted in starting fires with marvelous control of the draft. And it has a WiNdOw so I can WaTcH the crackle and the flames! It's all very thrilling.

We've had quite a nice Indian summer this year, but the winds of weather change are starting to blow now. The leaves are turning and falling fast. I'm inspired to clean out and brighten my corners before we shut the windows and haul in firewood for the months of cold. This week when I've had time I've worked a bit on the corners of my kitchen. I've brought in pieces of my favorite plants to keep me company when the garden sleeps. I've used the idea (not mine, but much appreciated) of planting in my empty tea tins! I switched out the curtain too; a lovely change and refreshing.
