Earl's favorite candle is lit. Cinnabon Caramel Pecanbon. Mmmm, it smells like a bakery!
The kitchen is clean and there is a pot of chicken stock simmering on the stove.
I have cut out some more heart and home pillows, although I just don't know if I will get them finished and listed before I leave for Florida tuesday. I hope you don't mind. I will try but the days are flying past! I will make time to announce the winner of the giveaway pillow Monday morning!
And now I have my mug of coffee on this chilly night (decaf of course!) and I am ready to get "Lost in Austen" with Victoria. She and I are huge Jane Austen fans. Earl, not so much. He has a book to read though so he will be cozy too:>)
Love the pillow design. Don't push yourself. Enjoy your trip & be safe.ReplyDelete
Kathy, that sounds like a perfect evening to me. Enjoy your time.ReplyDelete
Your homemade bread looks delicious. I'm ready to have a nice cup of tea, read my book, relax and enjoy the weekend.ReplyDelete
Oooh, the bread smells s-o good! And the chicken stock, too. The candle adds a nice aroma to the coziness of your cottage. I'll be right over to join you and Victoria. Do you have an extra teacup - or should I bring mine? Have a great weekend. I'm about ready to slow down and enjoy the rest of mine. I think! ~Adrienne~ReplyDelete
I'll have a loaf of bread and that candle please, honey! Looks good and I bet smells great......ReplyDelete
I saw Lost in Austen a few months back (Netflix). You'll like it - I loved how it ended. I like the actress Jemima something that's the main character. She was in the Railway Children (which is a wonderful movie if you haven't seen it yet - PBS).ReplyDelete
Everything looks so homey! I'm sure your neighbors appreciated the homemade bread! I know I would!
ok, if that isn't the perfect day I don't know what is! Wish it was cool enough here, I would bake all day. Where did you get that yummy candle??ReplyDelete
Oh I love the weather today, I can't help it, I love fall. I think it's because I'm a nester and Fall and winter means nesting. Summer is nice but I get really tired of the humidity. Have a wonderful evening and rest of the weekend.ReplyDelete
Enjoy that time with your daughter. Before you know it she'll be out of the house with a family of her own. MimiReplyDelete
Oh Kathy, I am noticing it too :( Someone has a woodstove going and when I let the dogs in I said to Chad, it sure smells like fall!! I am so sad about that, lol!!! ALthough I do like the beginning of fall - until the leaves are off the trees, then I am done, lol!ReplyDelete
THANK YOU so much for the kind comment on my blog post today Kathy. You have a been a sweet friend from day one and I love ya!!
Lucky you, going to Florida!! Can I hide in your suitcase?? Just kidding :)
I can smell that bread and the candle....oh so good. Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday! MumzieReplyDelete
Oh, Kathy!! This post had me feeling so comfy and cozy too! I wish I had baked bread and made soup!! Honey wheat. Would love the recipe when you are not so busy (the pillow looks beautiful!).ReplyDelete
I hope you have a wonderful time in Florida, my friend! :-)
I can almost smell the bread, it looks gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Have a relaxing time away.
What yummy looking bread you have made.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you had the perfect day! That bread looks very yummy! I enjoyed lost in Austen.ReplyDelete
yes comfy and cozy says it all. I also love the crisp fall weather, but I'm finding myself appreciating each moment of whats left of Summer, oh how I will miss it! Winter can just skip Virginia this year as far as I'm concerned!ReplyDelete
I've been gone all week and missed getting my name in oon this precious pillow...maybe next time?ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful time on your trip. I sure did...and feel all rewired!!
Be safe, dear heart.
That bread looks delicious!ReplyDelete
You should see the look on my husband's face if I suggest a Jane Austen movie...I think he might even roll his eyes.
I hope you have a great time in Florida!
Lovely, lovely post Kathy. I don't know how I missed this the other day...the bread looks amazing (and bless you for sharing with your neighbour!). I too am an Austen fan...where would the world be without having had Jane Austen???ReplyDelete
So happy to read you've cut more pillows! I was hoping you might do that and offer them in your etsy store I definitely want to buy one! = )ReplyDelete
What a peaceful evening you had! You made it sound all nice and cozy! Hope you enjoy yourself in Florida! That's where I live!! Have a blast in Disney!!ReplyDelete
