What's left of it that is.
This one started off pretty well. I was up early and baking blueberry muffins before everyone else got up. I woke them all up to the smell of baking. They love that.
So do I, even though I didn't eat any. Dave left the house with a forlorn look at the oven since they weren't ready yet by the time he had to leave for his train (don't worry I saved him one).
Now to share some decorating I've been doing. I love autumn and I love to bring it into the home. The colors in my home are warm and autumal which feels a little out of place in the spring and summer but now it just seems cozy. If only it wasn't so humid.
Our autumn mantle.
The nature table is getting decked out. There is an apothacary jar of pine cones, another filling with acorns and another that is empty waiting for other bits from our walks. There are some early fallen oak leaves and some favorite books. There is a piece of bark from our woodpile and that little creature peeking up from behind the autumn postcard?
There, he's ready for his close-up. Isn't he sweet? I bought him today at the Yankee Candle store. There were many choices in critters but the fox was too cute to leave behind. Kate was upset I didn't buy the moose so I see a trip back in my future.
Another treat. Smells heavenly.
I love these colors.
So that's where we are at so far. We haven't gone pumpkin or apple picking yet since it's a bit early and honestly they way our weekends are shaping up I'm not sure it's going to happen this year. Soccer, dance, orchestra, baseball, classes, etc… you know the drill.
Sigh. I like pumpkin picking. The point is I want to gather some more things to bring into the house as well as filling in some of the barer spots in the garden with mums and decorative kale. Maybe some corn stalks as well.
Well that's all for now. The littlest ones are in bed and the slightly older ones need tucking up in a bit. I hope you had a lovelyMonday.
