Gardening season is over for most of us. Soon my little garden will be covered in a blanket of glistening snow, everything will sleep for awhile and start anew in the Spring. I'm in the kitchen baking more as the holidays draw near. Last week we bought Fuji and Gala apples from the farmer's market.
Look what happened to the beautiful apples. Here my pies came out fresh from the oven. My father in-law stayed with us for 2 nights to help my husband build a wood shed for firewood. I made sure dad ate well. I also baked pumpkin maple pies and shared all the sweet treats with our neighbors. Everyone's tummies were happy and that made me smile!
I'm thankful to God for the gift of family. My awesome and generous father in-law drove 2 hours to get here. He took care of all the materials for the woodshed. No more wet wood for the fireplace so we're going to stay warm all winter long.
The new woodshed in the back porch. Bryan is gathering tons of logs and kindling for the fireplace. Our cabin will be cozy and toasty.
The other day our thoughtful neighbor surprised us with Gladiolus, my heart was delighted. The delicate beauty of these flowers instantly brightened up the room.
Fun Saturday evening tradition with my husband: Pizza, wine, and a movie. I look forward to this date at home all the time as we get cozy on the couch with simple but great food. It's utterly sweet to spend quality time with the one you love! ♥
