Favorite Time of the Year

 
Happy Fall .... Happy First Day of October !!
It's gloomy & chilly here in the woods ...... cleaning
out the wood stove and carrying some wood up to
the back deck, is on the agenda this day. 

We know soon we will be lighting a fire
early mornings & late evenings to
keep away the chill. 
DH has been splitting wood for weeks ....
thinks we should be all set for winter.


The cabin has had fall decorations out since my last
trip to PA.   We came back with a truck load ... unfortunately
I have had to rid so many .... must be due to all the
rain we have had. 
Some of the Best  didn't last three days past
my setting them around outside. :-(
We have had our share of company these last few
weeks .... a Surprise visit from
my brother, my nephew &
my great nephew who live in
Long Island & upstate NY
so much  Fun to sit,  catch up and laugh
around the kitchen table with Family. 
Good for the Soul !! I am Blessed !!
Next was a visit from Janet & Don
of winterwillowprimitives in VA
Janet and I have been Blog friends for
the past four years and it was so
nice to finally meet in person.
She is so sweet and we enjoyed the visit greatly.
She gifted me with one of her sweet pinkeeps I love it to
pieces ...... she also brought goodies for me that she sells
on her website, one was a small redware plate that
I just can't seem to capture in a photo.
All of it was Wonderful ...  the Gifts made
from Heart & Hand are Treasured.
Thank You so much Janet !!!

This week my Dear friend Anita
(aunt daisy's in EmmausPA)
came to spend a few days at the cabin .... just pure
"Girl Time" and boy how we both needed it. 
The weather was gloomy outside but the
laughs & chatter brightened the inside.
Its amazing how much talking two Friends
can do and really not say much, at least
that's what we told Paul. 
We only paused to eat & drink when
necessary lol
Amy my Dear you were missed ..... (((hugs)))
Anita also came bearing gifts ..... I'm getting totally spoiled,
and how my friends know me ..... I received the new Judy
Condon Book "Holidays at a Country Home" which
can be purchase at her store. I haven't put it down yet. 

She  also made me a Sweet bag of Dried Lemons
she knows  my love of "naturals" and boy do
they fit the bill ... look great & smell wonderful.
a trip through aunt daisy's will net
you things you wont see anywhere else. !!!
I promise you will love it.
Thank You so much Anita !!!

Its the special time of year ...
time for candles, fires,
good hearty meals, apple crisp,
pumpkin bread & pumpkin fudge.
Colored leaves, brisk walks, lap blankets 
cozy socks, and extra hugs.
 I couldn't be happier .... I Love the Fall !!!
I hope all is well with you & yours 
I thank you for stopping by when time allows. 
I know I enjoy my time visiting with you.

Sending Good Thoughts,
Blessing & Hugs from the Cabin ~~ Connie xox

Sounds like you've been having a wonderful time. Sure wish I was able to come visit that beautiful "cabin" (or you could make a trip of Michigan). Fall is my favorite time too, nothing quite like it all year long. Enjoy your new goodies and the beautiful days, Dawn

Rabbit Hill Primitives said...

Hi Connie! Everything is beautiful as always. I love this time of year also. Sorry about your pumpkins :( I read about Janet's visit with you on her blog, I'm so jealous! One of these days.... It sounds like she had a good time with good company.

I also hope to make it to Aunt Daisy's one of these days! We are planning a Lancaster trip in November but I think I remember her being at least another hour from Lancaster.

It was hard to let go of summer this year. Now that it's October, I'm ready to get my pumpkins and your pictures make me want to jump in the car and go right now lol!

Happy autumn my friend.
Hugs ~ Jenn :)

Your pictures always set the tone for whatever season it might be, Connie. Just returned from 3 days on Nantucket. Inhaled it all. I can never quite get over those cobblestone streets. Weather here has been beautiful. Rains every night and then the sun shines every day. We're still sitting on the porch in the afternoon sun, watching folks go back and forth on the street. Thanks for the terrific post on what surely must be everyone's favorite time of year. You always know how to get us in the mood.
Fondly, Joanne

Oh my...such delightfully, cozy photographs. I can imagine the fragrance of woodsmoke, the cool air of the out-of-doors, and the yummy aromas that surely fill your cabin.

Enjoy your special slice of heaven Connie!

Warmly,
Judy ox
