Not much has happened around here in the past few weeks. Summer is winding down and I can feel myself winding down a bit with it. As the days get shorter, and colder and darker I always find the changes a bit hard to take. I'm a sunshine girl and getting less always drains me a bit. So it was time for a little bit of a change around here. I had been considering painting this teeny little wall in my kitchen for a few weeks. First, I had to think it to death. Do you do that? Second guess, hmmm and haw, wonder if you'll like it? I do that and then I always come to the conclusion that it's a small wall and I can always paint over it. I would waste a lot less brain power if I could just jump straight to that conclusion and get to it. I like it, a lot...for now. For this season it just feels cozy. It makes that wall pop and doesn't really seem to darken the whole kitchen into a cave, which was another one of my fears. In the Spring I may decide it's too dark. The only thing that stays the same is that everything changes.Enjoying the Simple Things and I think of her each time I see it. It's something I will never tire of. :)
The garden is winding down, much to my sorrow. I am babying it along but as the nights get cooler and the days get shorter I am afraid my dear garden's days are numbered. I had a fabulous basil harvest so far and have frozen about 10 cups of pesto for those cold winter days when I need a shot of something that smells like summer. Some will go to my daughter for her freezer. There is more than enough to share.
Nights have been in the 40's and highs have been in the 60's here for the past week, Fall is definitely here! Is it creeping where you are too? Praying for those who are not enjoying the best of Autumn, Dallas, the fires out west and now hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida. So many friends and family in these areas. My heart goes out to them and I will keep praying for safety and help.
