We are getting ready to enjoy a day or so of Indian Summer here in New England. In California, I always thought of Indian Summer as the warm sunny days that come every September, October and November. I had no idea there was an exact definition. No matter - I plan to enjoy it when it arrives.
In my neighborhood, we are at about 50% color right now.
I think sunset hour is the most beautiful time of day. Everything just takes on a golden glow. No description in word or film can express just how beautiful it is.
This is also the time of year when the wildlife is getting ready for the winter months. This brings on a high form of entertainment in our house -
Squirrel Watch 2010. The critters must be monitored. Daisy has appointed herself 'Captain of the Watch.' She brings Hubby along as her wing man. They both take their assignment very seriously.
Today felt like a 'kitchen day' to me. I fixed Shepherd's Pie for dinner tonight. Doesn't it feel great to have your day's meals made and the mess all cleared long before lunch? I'll just pop it in the oven to heat through and crisp up the topping.
It's also apple season in these parts. I picked up a bag at the market and made up some apple coffee cake with about half of the bag.
The house smells great and we have breakfasts for days to come.
On the quilting front, I got those Folkart Gathering baskets all assembled and handles appliqued in place. Now on to the remaining applique for the rest of Block 2.
Even though I have the pattern for Block 3 on hand, I can hardly wait for Block 4 to come out. Better get stitchin', I want to be ready when it happens.
When you get an itch, scratch it!
