Family Day.

 We all had this past week off from school and
work. Our original plans went sideways ....


.... but that's a long post for another day. We ended
up taking a few days off from the chaos to have fun.


Christmas shopping and yummy lunch with our
girls. It was so good to have a break and laugh.

I miss ....


The snow has made everything so
stark and quiet, bare and noiseless.


I miss the leaves that hide our house in
the forest. I miss the sound of the wind
blowing through the trees. I miss the hot
sun warming out souls. I miss Summer.

Our Winter Garden.

 As pretty as the snow is right now, I
much prefer a greener landscape.


In the Spring, we're going to start
to plant some cedars and firs so that
there will be green all year long,
once the leaves fall from the trees.


Our little garden bench, looking lost
and forlorn in the bitter cold wind.


Our perennials are now buried deep
beneath a white blanket until Spring.


And our tiny little teeter totters are still
happily "playing" away despite the cold.

Is there snow in your region?
Do you miss your garden like me?

Hello November.


You bring us closer to actual Winter
and the Christmas Season. Lots of
birthdays in our home this month.
And so much to be thankful for.

Baby Groot.


Our little guy in his Baby Groot costume
for Halloween 2017. He had a great time
and ended up with quite a bit of candy.
We both had fun taking him out and loved
having our neighbors come down the lane
to our sweet little cottage for treats from us.

Night Time Scenes.


Our tea cupboard, a.k.a. as the Butler's
Pantry. A tiny wall lamp to light the way.


Our living room, where the soft light
provides us with a quiet place to reflect.
