The best things about Autumn
I truly view each Season with great expectation. With Autumns arrival we have watched a sky full of swallows gathering food as they get ready for their migration. I had no idea how breathtaking and spiritual the whole experience would be. The way they form a tornado appearance in mass and with in seconds dive straight down to their nesting places. The sky is chaotic with movement and how they each know where to land in a second is beyond me..
I always look so forward to our Autumn Equinox neighbor dinner. Linda my neighbor and I both make a hearty soup and bake bread. This has been a tradition we have kept for sometime now. To my great happiness my friend also knitted me this beautiful soft alpaca cowl. I just love the colours. Itching to be worn...
My cooking books and teas have been brought and a small whistling kettle on the ready to brew. A new Le Creuset pot for my homely stews and soups. Boy did I struggle to choose which colour. Pumpkins by the dozen from our harvest..I've hung up the herbs to dry knowing they won't last the Winter frost. I just love cooking with my own herbs. Honey buckets stacked up from the local honey farm. I have also painted out our kitchen in a lovely soft yellow. All very light and happy~
I've been spinning favorite roving's to see me through beanie knitting this Winter. At the moment I am busy knitting Louisa Harding's 'Elderflower' Cape let. I have chosen handspun merino, dark and faded teal. So happy as its my first Lacey item.
LOVING Autumn and getting ready for Winter....
