Hello everyone, I thought I would do another Day in the Life for you, but this time combining a few days into one.
I have taken quite a few pictures, so this will be a photo heavy post, hope you don't mind, though I know that a few of you actually really enjoy these.
I still find myself amazed, on a daily basis, at the beautiful scenery before me. I almost feel like God placed this house in our paths and said "Here, this is what you've been looking for, this is what you've wanted for so long".
As I watch the seasons transition from Summer to Fall, I make a mental list of things I need to get done before the cold sets in. Yes I know that Texas doesn't get as cold as Idaho, but it still gets cold, and where we are, we still get snow and ice.
I definitely need to get cracking on the wood pile this weekend, hubby and I are going to do a lot of yard work, thankfully it hasn't been raining much so we haven't had to mow as often, but would like to get a good grass cutting in, if anything to keep these annoying prickly weeds from growing.
My days here in our country home are pretty much the same. A slow pace, the tending of household chores, homeschooling, pets and a husband. Bills and the never ending cleaning.
I don't stick to a very set schedule but I do have things I do on a daily basis, a routine of sorts, and it works for me, it keeps me focused and takes away a bit of the monotony of the tasks at hand.
Even though Fall is not officially here, it has slowly started descending on my household in small pieces, here and there.
I've updated my mantel with Fallish bits and bobs. These Fabric Pumpkins that I made so many years ago. You can try them for yourself if you like by visiting my post here. I'm actually thinking of making a few more for the second living room and using some green fabric to match the walls and the decor in there.
Something else I've pulled out is my yarn, I have quite a stash that I don't know what to make with, they're not quite big enough for a blanket, so I thought I would go with something smaller and I've settled on a pretty scarf for Fall.
Those are my colors and I've kind of arranged them in the pattern that I want, I may end up switching something here or there, but I may just leave them as is. I think it will make for a really cute Fallish scarf.
There's nothing to it, really. I cast on 41 stitches and I'm working it all in single crochet stitches (US terms) or double crochets (UK terms).
I'm not yet sure how long it will be but it will definitely not be a short scarf, I like mine quite on the longish side.
With Summer coming to an end, life is definitely slowing down for me and that's quite alright, I am always looking forward to Summer but I tend to forget that it's also one of the busiest times of the year for us.
I'm ready for cooler temperatures, pumpkin and apple and cinnamon scents, warm glowy candles, scarves and boots and cozy winter nights in front of the fireplace. Yes, I believe it's time!!!
