A Harvest Evening

How I wish this was my house! Doesn't this make you just want to crawl in one of those seats with some tea and a great book? This picture describes the atmosphere in my home right now. Today was a perfect harvest day. We picked and carved pumpkins, made and indulged in some home made apple crisp and roasted corn on the fire... a very filled day. Now the house is quieter. The littles are fast asleep upstairs and hubby and the girls are watching their favorite football team score their way to victory. The house is picked up and I can reflect on the day. This was our 2nd year in our Little Red House carving pumpkins. Traditions are being set once again and our roots are slowly setting in. We are getting familiar with the weather patterns, favorite places for Apples and who has the best pumpkins. This certainly is our home.
Tonight the air is crisp and chilled. We have the doors and windows open to enjoy the cold air and are snuggled under warm blankets. I don't want this night to end. It was the perfect fall day...


  1. love your sweet blog. It's like coming home to a long time friends house and she welcomes you in. You may be a stranger but I can tell we are sisters in the Faith. I will be back soon to read more! p.s. love your sweet red house!

  2. My mother was a house guest here for the last few days. My atmosphere when she is here is that picture (TURNED UPSIDE DOWN) - I dropped her at the train this morning...But nooooow, the house is picked up as much as it is going to be, two kids are sleeping, two kids are out earning money, I am waiting for my water to boil now for my tea!
