Autumn Reflections

Autumn is waiting in the shadows of summer, waiting to fill our eyes with its beauty.


Fall has found its way into our farmhouse.  
I am slowly replacing our fall decoration, I love the white pumpkins.
Lately, I have being seeing blue pumpkins in town, they are so cute.

What is there not to like about this season?  I can't think of anything can you?

Each season, and each day is ordered by God.
 Fall brings changes in our little farmhouse of warmth, 
cozy soups, fall dish towels, and plenty of baking.
A cup of pumpkin latte, a cozy blanket,
and a good book to take us to places 
that we only dream of.

Cable knit sweaters
Hunter boots
Apple cider
Fall leaves
Cozy Fires 


(The woods near our back yard)

These Autumn walks of golden sunlight and golden leaves are slowly coming our way. 



God brings us the beauty of Autumn, and reminds us that change will come,
and that He is with us.


Wishing you the loveliest fall day,  an apple-y kind of day.


I would love to hear from you.

A Picnic Within The Greenhouse

While the girls were busy with school, I secretly went out to the greenhouse 
to set it up for a picnic. They were very curious, and I no longer could keep it a secret.  
When they found out, they were excited about having a picnic for lunch in the greenhouse.  
Only one thing they had to do, they could not come in until I had completely set it up.



Setting the table oh, how fun!


Sitting among the plants.

The table is spread with a tasty little lunch.




My guests have arrived, and they are very excited about it.

(hubby doesn't like their photo's online, a little mask will do)

This is what spoons are for after all, silly little girl.

We enjoyed watching the butterflies just outside the door.
A few flew in and landed among us.  What fun it was to have them around!

We have a new guest!

Another little guest waited patiently to be invited in.
She eventually made her way in towards the end of our picnic.
I wonder if it was because the girls kept tossing pieces of their lunch to her. *-  (wink)

Leaving the table within, I am very sure we will be back really soon.

Thank you for coming along on our picnic!
Hugs from the farmhouse.

A Slower Pace



Nothing says a slow life like a front porch 
or even a back porch.
Porches are a great place to slip away  and to read with a nice glass of tea.
It is a great place to unwind and live life at the speed of a rocking chair.
It is a great place to begin your day in prayer and reading.

The front porch is just another room to us. We find ourselves out there often, 
especially on rainy days.  We love listening to the rain on the tin roof.  
The kids like to jump rope or play jacks on the porch.   
If you have a porch, visit it more often, and you will feel your life slowing down.



  

Living simple is just a matter of slowing down, saying no to a busy life, 
while finding time to stay home.

What are someways you live life at a slower pace?
