Autumn Days... and Podcast #4


Hello, everyone... and HAPPY AUTUMN!! (If you're in the Northern Hemisphere! HAPPY SPRING to you in the Southern Hemisphere!)  October + Robert Frost poems = PERFECT! I read some Robert Frost in this episode of the podcast...


Yes, we're still harvesting -and eating- apples... it's the year of the apple... haha! 


Things are slowing down in the garden, and we're beginning some end of season clean up. I'm also drying herbs from the garden and getting them in jars... here we have lemon balm...


In the kitchen... We've been cooking and enjoying fårikål-- a slow-cooked lamb and cabbage casserole, which is an autumn favorite here in Norway! This with some of our homegrown potatoes...mmm... !!



Recently at church one Sunday evening we had the great pleasure of attending a beautiful choral Evensong service. There was some ambient lighting too on the altar--pretty!



Lots of yarn-ing these days.. clockwise from the top left: colorwork mittens in progress... a pink knitted top with a lacework hem... Yarns being "auditioned" for a potential project... and crocheting a blanket for Luna with yarns leftover from previous projects earlier this year. 


And finally Luna... just because... and because we LOVE her so! :)))

My apologies for being slow to update comments here, once again, for some strange reason, I've not been receiving email notifications from Blogger that I have comments... LOL! It all was working smoothly again, for a while, but now I've not been getting the notifications... so if comments are slow to appear here, no worries...

With autumn now, I feel an inward pull... seeking more quiet time and space... And so I've been online less. After a very busy spring and summer, it's been lovely to slow down a little bit now! Savoring the change of season and seasonal delights...   And there is some seasonal happy in this episode of the podcast... Hope you enjoy! :)))

Don't feel pressured into sharing things you don't feel a need to share. I love your foodie posts, but I also love your crafty, spiritual, etc. I guess I just love everything you share! Love YOU my sweet friend and your heart is invested in everything you do. That I can call you friend is a blessing to me! Loving your projects you have going. Your mittens are going to be gorgeous and the colour of that sweater is so YOU! And Luna, sweet Luna, thanks for all you share dear friend. Happy October! Love and hugs. xoxo

  3. I am really enjoying your podcasts. They are so soothing and I loved listening to you read poetry today. I do love the ending of being on the Road Less Traveled. Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets. The music on your podcast is so lovely.
    I do miss your recipes and food posts. In fact, I would love your recipe for the slow cooked lamb and cabbage casserole. It sound like a good one to try. However, I enjoy everything you write about. Today's thoughts are beautiful and I love your photos as always. Your thoughts on the end of the season cleanup and washing of windows. I need to do a bit of that for sure.
    Your crocheting projects look lovely and I especially like the colors for Luna's blanket. Maybe I should think of crocheting Sammy one and that would get me started back crocheting again. The photo of your Luna is adorable.
    This week in our Sacrament meeting we had messages about favorite Hymns and then we sang them. it was such a spiritual feast and I shed some tears. Your service looked lovely.
    I actually think I would like to pull back a bit and have a little more quiet time and space.
    Love your blog and all your thoughts and continue to enjoy our growing friendship.
    Sending loving thoughts, wished for blessings and hugs your way dear sister in Christ!

    1. Thanks so much, LeAnn! And it is lovely how blogs grow friendships, like ours! :) I will see about putting up a recipe for the lamb meal... It's kind of one of those things that doesn't actually look too pretty plated up, but tastes delicious! Will see if I can get a recipe post up by the end of the week... it's really easy to make. You Sacrament meeting with hymn singing sounds so wonderful... I'm getting teary just thinking about it... :))) Wishing you a blessed week, my friend ((HUGS))
