The speed with which it all changes around here amazes me still. I’d started to take the gazebo down but this weekend we have to finish it. I’d say that the Marguerite’s are kinda done for the year also, don’t you think! Hmmmm!
Crunchy underfoot and deliciously cosy. We’ll be out here this weekend trussed up in scarfs and gloves. As will the babies, they join us in most things.
Good morning ‘neigh’bour! Ha! Boom boom!
I apologize, it’s Friday and I’m so happy about this that the cheesy jokes are pouring out of me.
One of two delicious sturdy quince that our tree has produced this year. Next year I expect more and the Quince jam will be flowing like milk and honey.
I picked them and brought them in to my morning kitchen. Watching as the ice melted from the heat of the Aga.
Tomorrow & Sunday, once we have finished being outside, we’ll come in and get all cosy. It is darker earlier in the evenings now and the fairy lights go on. I keep them up all year and can’t resist the light they give off. It makes everyone look beautiful and if we were all naked then none of us would have cellulite!
I’ll also sit here for a bit this weekend, I would expect. Not bothering to plump up the cushions as they are still in the same shape as when I was in them last time. Partaking in my favourite type of reading and being inspired until I’m at bursting point. Why are there a finite amount of meals that one can have in a lifetime? WHY, I ask you, when there is so much good cooking to be done?
We’ll see people this weekend and share stories across the table.
Whilst our arm hairs are singed on the candles.
Annoying yes, but a small price to pay for the sheer romanticism of it all.
I love you and wish you the most ROMANTIC of October weekends. See you on Monday morning.
Right, off to build a fire now and I’ll be Tweeting/facebooking it if I manage it….!
