|The light is beginning to change to a new season...|
A cold front came through last night. I mean a real honest to goodness cold front. I shivered as I walked down the gravel lane to pick up the newspaper this morning. I know it will turn hot again. The temperatures can soar in September! But this is the first taste of Autumn... Can pumpkin spice lattes be far behind?
This week has been full of slow days. Quite wonderful after all the busy-ness of the last months. I may be able to pull out my scrapbook journal and work on it soon. If I do, I will make certain to take photos to share here.
So without further delay, this is what has been going on in my world this past week as seen through the lens of a simple point and shoot camera.
I haven't had time for much in the way of personal reading this week with review responsibilities. However, I had ordered Sarah Mae's new book with Amazon Credit at a great price and I can tell already I'm going to love it.
Some may know Sarah Mae from co-writing with Sally Clarkson. You can find more information about Longing for Paris at Amazon... here.*
I listen to the Valley of Vision "album"* on the Amazon Music App on the iPad. It is beautiful! Info... here.
Cooking & Baking
|I made veggie beef soup even though it was hot outside at the time!|
|I had cream cheese that needed to be used soon so I made cheesecake to share with the kids. That same day I made a new batch of chocolate sauce for my husband. This is what he did with it. ;)|
|All but one are thrift store/antique mall finds.|
|The $3.99 Goodwill purchase.|
|My very favorite teapot, a gift from Stephanie.|
I don't go to Goodwill often these days because, well... I have enough stuff. But this past week I decided to take a walk-thru and look what I found for $3.99! The teapot in the middle photo.
It looks a lot like my very favorite teapot, the one my daughter purchased for me as a birthday gift (or was it a Christmas gift?) when she worked at a coffee/tea shop in college. They both are made by companies in Staffordshire, England.
Actually, everything on the buffet comes from thrifting except one teacup, the July birthday teacup (lower right teacup on first photo) that my daughter bought me when we were at Old Sturbridge Village a long time ago!
Morning quiet time with Paris tea* and my favorite devotional*.
