One lone star in the morning sky greeted me yesterday as I headed out to feed the animals.
It was 47 degrees...brrrrrr...but I've got to tell you....I'm loving this time of year!
There is something about the refreshing autumn air, after a summer of
heat and humidity that supercharges me.
I awoke filled with energy and quickly tackled the morning chores.
A load of laundry was done as well as the week's ironing,
the floors vacuumed and the pantry cleaned and organized.
I love a well-stocked pantry.
It's a necessity when living this far away from my favorite grocery store.
I spent a little time in my sewing room and worked on appliquéing some onesies
for the pink fairy princess.
I had seen ones exactly like these in a gift shop (pricey) and decided I could make them myself.
That little pink fairy has started to smile....check it out...
Another project that I have been working on is hand made paper.
I found the necessary tools for sale at the Country Living Fair.
The process is so easy and so much fun.
I'll do a video demonstration in the coming days.
The rest of yesterday (another perfect Autumn day) was spent gussying up the farm.
Summer's colors are fading and the landscape is late-summer-drab right now.
Autumn's colorful foliage has not yet arrived...
so mums and pumpkins help to spruce things up a bit.
We are hosting Hubbs' workmates for a family farm day on Saturday...
complete with picnic, hayrides, lawn games, and farm tours.
It's going to be a very busy and very fun weekend for sure.
The animals will have a great time with so many people visiting.
Hopefully they are a little more lively than this...
Lastly, I've been wanting to show you a t-shirt that I found at the CL Fair last weekend.
I saw this and immediately knew it was perfect for me.
That has been my motto for many years now!
There is so much in life that we have no control over...
but out story belongs only to us...
and we are the authors.
I intend to live a great story...no matter what!
