It's official as of today, the season is Autumn and our weather and my mindset are in sync with it. It's been cloudy, cool and rainy off and on over the weekend. So, crocheting on Caleb's blanket has been the order of the day.
Dayle was in the kitchen making chicken noodle soup and biscuits for our dinner and the boys were being rambunctious - so I said, would you two like some honey and raspberry jam on your biscuits after you eat your soup? YES! Okay, why don't you sit in grandpa's chair and fold your hands and watch the cartoon I have on for you? I had to record this moment and I find it just a hoot.
We use these great "Bear Creek" soup mixes and Dayle adds more noodles, celery, carrots and lots of chicken. They have a delicious flavor!
When Hayden got done with his biscuits - one with honey and one with raspberry jam, I spied him licking the plate to get all the goodies off. :-)
I made up Caleb's biscuit, one side with homemade raspberry and one with strawberry jam. Poor guy has a bit of a cold and his left eye is swollen. It always seems this weather brings such things.
I did a look-about this morning to see if I could get a photo that conveyed the season and weather.. not sure I accomplished that. The dahlias across the road are starting to wane.
I'd stepped out on the old front porch to snap the photo of the flowers, when I came in I glanced at the Hoosier cabinet and my cake plate with some old green handled utensils laying upon it. I kind of liked the look of the greens together.
The moss on the garage and shed are very lush and happy with the rain. We're contemplating putting a new metal roof on the garage, I'll miss the moss, but it's not good for the roofing.
Kristi brought in an old box she found while cleaning the garage out - it was full of my old schoolwork, some letters from my classmates when I moved away in 7th grade, some of my brother's Russian worksheets, and a few old lost photos. I was thrilled to find this photo of my twin brother and sister (6 years older than me) - Robert and Roberta at their graduation. I called my sister and she did not have this photo and was thrilled I'd found it!
This photo was also in the box, of my and my friends dressing up for Halloween when I was in 7th grade! I don't know what I was trying to look like! I'm in the middle.
Today Chef Dayle has decided to make Tamale Pie for dinner! I'm going to crochet and paint some dinosaurs for a diorama Hayden is supposed to make for school. Dayle is now cleaning out the pellet stove so we can start having a fire in it. What are you up to? Has Autumn arrived at your house? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
