A Few of My Favorite Things...

I usually rather like the fall, but this year I haven't really been feeling the love.  I've just been plain old grouchy.   But the sun is shinning today and there are so many good things around me.  Here are a few of my favorite things....

It was fun that the color of some fabric I just bought matched the color of the leaves that fell the next day.  

Rainbow piles of fabric trimmings.

Mini gourds from my neighbor's garden and chrysanthemums from ours.

Two year olds who insist on dressing themselves in their sister's way-too-big boots.

Making fancy bread inspired by this viral facebook video.  (Post by Iris Cohen.)

And small town homecoming parades and five year old's who tell you that they didn't throw the candy they were given because "if you do, you won't have any candy at the end of the parade."   Words of wisdom.  :)  


  1. I know the feeling this season I have been grouchy myself and I tell myself. Be happy because winter is coming. Love the photos of your daughter.

  2. Love it! All good reasons to love the fall. I usually prefer the spring but this fall has been very spring-like for us. Cool mornings, warm afternoons, and lots of sunshine.

  3. We're all finally smiling here in Southern California because the hot hot weather has finally broken, giving way to more typical pleasant days. In fact, we walk around smiling all the time. None of this, however, happened much before the end of October, so maybe we were in the groove with you all the time and just didn't know it. Keep smiling--
