My transition from cluttered to simple living.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Our little room nears completion, and I drool at the thought of evenings spent at my sewing machine, or daylight hours spent at my easel.  I am so happy to have a corner to call my own!

It has been again, many weeks since I last posted.  I have been busy with work.  I have also started a portrait painting course.  I had a visit with my DIL and granddaughters, and another with my daughter, her husband and my littlest grandson.  Time moves so quickly that at times it is frightening.

Fall is my very favourite time of the year.  Our leaves are changing colour and dropping in great number.  I think that Eliot says it best...

"Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."  ~George Eliot

I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving.  It is a celebration where there are no gifts...other than the gift of good food, friendship and family.  I sometimes wish that Christmas was celebrated in the same manner.  Perhaps one day it shall be.

This picture was taken in the fall of last year.  The leaves are just turning as you can tell by the reflection in the water.  How I love it here!

I must go.  Evening calls.  My house needs to be put to shut and bed turned down. 

Goodnight!  Sweet dreams!
