I know… I know… I’ve been quiet this week. I am planning catch up from being back in Oklahoma with Junebug for a week. My mother-in-law is making a brave move west – leaving the state she has spent 67 years living in, to be closer to us. It won’t be difficult to think of what we are most thankful for in a few weeks. Having family close makes our simple life that much richer.

The fall garden looking less jungle-like

As far as the homestead goes, I left when colorful leaves were still on the trees.

Our Bosc pear tree in full autumn glory

Traces of fall were on the patio.

Fall leaves on the patio

I have returned to remnants of a summer that seem a far memory.

Melons that didn’t ripen in time, left to remind us of summer

Heaps of squash remind me it’s still fall, although it feels more and more like winter is knocking.

Meals for fall

It’s time to hole up inside our little hobbit house to recoup from clearing out 67 years worth of belongings. Restful weekend friends and see you next week.
