However strong my convictions are about retiring, or if I think I am on the brink of breaking an old habit, something comes up that cannot be resisted, like the Moon rising with Venus, Mercury, or bringing home the first pumpkin of the season, the sight of storm clouds towering in the east, so what other choice do I have? I have to share. And the pumpkin was good motivation for clearing off the dining table, and preparing some special dinners. Then I even cleaned the window paint off of the entry sidelights... yes, the Christmas window paint, up since December 4th.
In my defence, the paint held up very well, and it was cheery. So, here you have it... a little bit of September, from watching the sky to Windex and elbow grease. Actually, this feels nice... I do wish we could get together over tea, and Maria's cranberry orange scones, and enjoy a long, slow, thorough chat.
Incredible photos!! I especially love the first one. I don't think it is... but it looks like a figure is sitting in front of the most brightly lit window. It just looks so wonderfully inviting. Your home is an incredible place.
What a lovely view!
While your gearing up for fall we are heading into spring
I’ve so much work to do in the garden just waiting for the rain to stop long enough for the ground to dry a little
Gardening in a bog isn’t my idea of a fun day
What's the blue? Start of expanding horizons?
I think of retiring, too, and I do take longer breaks lately, between blogging and reading blogs. But -- I've sure got the habit. And it was nice to come and find you still here.
Oh, I see it now! I think it's a telescope. Leslie and Ido's telescope, actually. They lent it to me, and we've hardly had a cloudless night since! Last year was so amazing for stars, meteors and planets! Janece, I have to agree about this home, which makes me feel a bit sheepish about how much love and hard work our place needs! Everything is looking... well, as though it's been through an epic lockdown! And I suppose, having been in the lockdown, too, I have been overlooking too many things. I am glad you think it still looks inviting. Someday, we hope to be inviting everyone, again.
We really do have some exceptional views. Around here, the ocean views are considered a premium, but I am very fond of the backcountry, looking east. Send your rain over here, Angela! And Happy Spring!
Which "blue," Ruth? I've been guessing, and I am thinking maybe you are seeing the blue looking metal roof?It looks a bit like the start of something. From our bedroom balcony we look over the porch roof. I know we hinted at our hopes to add on. Guess what! We met an actual architect last week! There will indeed some expanding horizons around here!
GretchenJoanna, it is a habit, isn't it? And not such a bad one, either. Long breaks sounds sensible.
Thank you for popping over to find me.
