On my home from work yesterday...
It brings me great comfort...
Mainly because it has looked just like this...
And I think it is beautiful!
Back at the tiny cottage we call "home",
All the windows are almost completely steamed over from cooking.
Red beans and cornbread...a tradition in my family.
You could always count on eating them at least once a week.
(because they were inexpensive)
Now, they are a luxury because of the time they require.
Inside the cottage, it's warm and toasty
and smells of simmering onions and beans.
Outside the air is brisk and leaves fall from the trees in my yard like raindrops.
This is my favorite time of the year!
(As I am sure I have mentioned once or twice!)
It is a time where the cooking of comfort foods,
warm and cozy throws taken straight from the dryer
and thick cashmere socks are little indulgences that make each day special.
This evening, right after dinner,
We are planning a small fire in the little fire pit that sits among 4 Adirondack chairs.
(He graduated from Purdue just last year...my how time flies).
I have bought marshmallows to toast while we enjoy the cool Autumn evening
but I will be the only one to eat them!
so here it is...
My wish for each of you is:
That you can
Take time to enjoy the simple things
A few quiet moments...
a stop along the way..
taking in the things you find to be beautiful...
With those you hold dear!
Have a Fantastic Weekend!
