We are in the midst of the wettest autumn since the mid-1950s, which is my excuse for not posting earlier this week. I have been waiting for a sunny day to take photos. While we may actually see some sunshine soon... the flash became necessary if there are to be any photos this week.
There is not a lot going on this week. Although we just had our well flushed this morning for the second time as bacteria continued to show up after the first run through of chlorine bleach. It is probably a good thing we had an under-the-sink filter put in since we have lived here (we're on the second one now).
The treatments are expensive and one pays for the second as well as the first but it is all so we can switch our mortgage, which in the long run will be a good financial move. As for the short run... not so much.
Otherwise, not a lot going on here at home but I will share with you the few interesting projects. I didn't take photos of the guys and the well and the chlorine and the money literally going down the drain. :(
Alive to Wonder: Celebrating the Influence of C. S. Lewis is one of the books available for a free download on the Desiring God website... here. The PDF file version easily downloaded and then saved to the Kindle on the iPad.
Survival Mom is an excellent book about being prepared and deepening the pantry. I have had it on my Amazon Wish List for awhile so I was quite happy when the Kindle version went on sale! I highly recommend the book and her website. The Kindle version is suppose to remain $1.99 through October 19th this Sunday), available... here.*
I brought two herb plants indoors and this was the best place to put them. At least for now. So it involved some tweaking of the top of the buffet.
I was asked about the china in the "antique drawer still life". The small butter dish is Old British Castles (brown) and of course, the larger dish is Friendly Village.
I do promise a full post just about Scrapbook Journaling. But here are photos of the first two pages of my new journal. For past journals, mosey on to the archives... here.
The real secret I have found over the years... and I am constantly changing the way I journal... but the one I have stuck with is not trying to make my pages perfect. But to have them be memories and ideas and thoughts that are significant to my life.
