We wake, on this Autumn morning in New England, to thick clouds and blustery temperatures. While standing on the front porch this morning, sipping coffee bundled in my heaviest sweater and wool slippers, I was greeted by the howl of a very close coyote!!! Such an ominous sounds in the wee hours of the morning. Needless to say, I hurried back inside to the comfort of a crackling fire and the morning news!! I am feeling better today, thank goodness. It's so frustrating when an illness dictates your days!! Hopefully I can stay awake throughout the entire day today AND not find it necessary to be in bed at 7pm!!!
At any rate....I am starting the morning with some energy to which I am going to take advantage of. First things first, I am going to make an apple crisp with our freshly picked apples, then I shall catch up on orders and finally settle myself in to a day of working on Winter Blessings (workshop project #2). I am needle felting the little snow folk head right now....SO sweet!
Speaking of workshops....My first workshop, Winter Wonders is now full and just a few spots remain for Winter Blessings & Merry Olde St. Nick. I am looking so forward to the workshops this year..the nervousness,of the first couple of years (making sure all bases were covered), has parted and, for me, they now kick off the Holiday Season with Merriment and Friendship. If you are hoping to join us this year do be sure and contact me, to reserve your spot, as soon as possible. IT'S A MERRY TIME :)
Well, the sky is beginning to lighten and day break is upon us. I must gather myself, tend the fire, give Oliver James his morning treat and tidy the house. I think I will make a Shepard's Pie for dinner this evening. Tis expected to be cold with heavy rain (finally) so that will be perfect. Speaking of perfect....we've a blustery and cold weekend ahead with the possibility of a snowy flurry or two :~)!!!!!
Until next time ~ wishing you the loveliest of days...Doreen
