Counting my blessings tonight ... thought I'd share a few happy things with you all!
It was rainy here this morning, quite dismal and gray ... but roundabouts noontime, the skies cleared and all that autumn sunshine poured forth ...
Looks even prettier glinting off that rain-soaked foliage!
(As we took these photos, Earlybird and I, we heard off in the distance, of all things, a train whistle. Well, as some of you know, EB is a HUGE train buff so he first went absolutely still - then his wide eyes swung to mine and we both exclaimed, "A TRAIN!" We have no idea where the nearest tracks are, but they're near enough we could hear that whistle! So very exciting.)
Had a lovely visit today with Nana (my mum) and two special aunties. We shared cups of tea and recipes, sitting by the sunny kitchen window. Visits with dear friends and family do so much to refill the tank, do they not?
Uncle Matt (my brother) sent along some delicious "pumpkin toaster pastries" - which will make a perfect Halloween breakfast tomorrow morning!
And a lovely surprise! A houswarming gift from a dear friend ...
(A peek at our family room hearth, as well!)
And some yummy magazines arrived in the mail today ...
That's the Yankee with the Susan Branch article I mentioned a few days ago ... cannot wait to sit down with a cup of tea and dig in!
And finally, nothing quite so beautiful as a sleeping baby ...
Have yourselves a lovely evening, my friends ... see you tomorrow on All Hallow's Eve!
