Happy Fall

First day of fall. Did you know today is the first day of autumn 2008? The Red Spider Lilies must have. They're out in front of Freeman House in time to greet the occasion.

I have so many exciting things planned over the next few months. My October is booked solid. I mean, booked. Solid. But in the midst of the madness I intend to find a few quiet moments. A little time to talk to my Creator. An afternoon to piece a quilt. A few minutes to collect firewood. Make a pot of chili. Catch a Cowboy's game. Read a book. Snuggle on the couch. Play my piano. Rake leaves. Breathe deeply....

... and walk the dog. Can't forget about "the little brown dog", as Millie is affectionately known around these parts.

Wishing you a fall full of quiet and comfort and contentment. Happy autumn! -Brin

Brin, I just did my fall post too. You're going to be one busy girl. I don't know how you get it all done. Wish I was in my 20's again. :)

Millie looks so cute looking at the lilies. Thanks for sharing that picture. xxoo

Thanks for sharing so much of yourself Brin. I truthfully don't ever recall reading a blog that moved to tears as yours did. I enjoy your faith and ability to see joy and beauty in the simple things in life.

Brin, I know you're busy but I have a very delectable recipe I posted on my blog today you might want to try. I think this would smell really delicious coming from the Freeman House kitchen....especially during a Cowboy's game! Happy fall to you too.

Oh, Brin! I haven't seen spider lilies in years. These remind me so much of my grandmother's yard many light-years away. I can still see and smell all the various flowers, shrubs, and trees in her yard. It, too, housed a Victorian cottage with a kitchen full of goodies.

Thank you. This gave me time to pause and remember. And made my heart smile.
