Good Monday Morning ~~

Good Morning ~~
Its Monday, the sun is shining, the wash in on,
and there is a large pot of tomato sauce
cooking on the stove. I still have to mix
roll & fry my meatballs, cant do them too soon or they
wont make the pot. :-)
My youngest son Tommy (26) is home from AZ
till after Thanksgiving and this was his request,
he eats like a bird so I'm always happy to make
something he truly likes. I also have plans to
bake a pie, chocolate cream.
Mondays are always my busiest day of the
week, and my most productive.
Just coming off a restful, and most enjoyable week-end
I'm ready to tackle the week.

This week-end we had a Beautiful Indian Summer Sunday
which allowed me to take a walk in the Woods.
I was able to collect more greens and more rosehips, this
has been a bumper year for the prickly red berries I love.

I was also able to scout out a few pine saplings
that I may bring home soon,
to finish off my Christmas decorating.



I have a few customers that have made
appointments to come into the "shop" this week,
so I am trying to make sure every thing
looks, and smells just right.

I don't have a lot of Christmas items, so I'm trying to
give the feel of Christmas in hopes they take home
an antique filled with greens or berries.
Or maybe a good smelling candle or at the very
least a "Good Feeling".
Hope all is well and you are having a
Wonderful Monday smack dab in the middle of November.
Sending Warm Blessings & Hugs from the Cabin.

Such wonderful photos Connie. I am so happy to hear your son is home with you. It is wonderful when we can be with our families for the holidays. I laughed at your comment about our heritage, so true. We are so blessed to have it.
God Bless you and yours. ♥

I love going for walks in the back and getting berries to add to my baskets, they are still a bit orange, but will be red soon.
