Jasper just announced, “It’s starting to get beautiful outside!”, at the creamy pastel sky, just beginning to lighten up. Of course, we have been up for a while, reading books in the darkness of the November morning. And though we are clearly in the thick of Autumn, the weather has hardly prevented us from any outdoor activity as of yet. Our wood stove has hardly even gotten a proper workout.
But our days are not limited to outdoor excursions, though truth be told, they are surely much more calming and cohesive than the indoor stints. But, we still love our bouts of wild, chaotic, messy crafting, and tiny car lining up, and scissor snipping things we are not supposed to, and bird doodling, and oh so much reading. Miles is nose deep into his third Harry Potter, which I am not entirely sure how I feel about honestly! I believe I am putting a pause button on that one for a time. As for me I have been reading, Salvage the Bones and Behold the Dreamers. I do recommend both!
I am feeling the switch to the cozy indoors. I am relishing in the not quite needing to bundle up entirely section of the year. And I am dreaming up all kinds of crafts I surely won’t have time to do this season. And that is just fine.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and the photos of your beautiful children. Your lives sound rich, creative and full of discovery.
Thank you so much!! I love writing here, wish I had time to do it more!
Those golden fingerless mitts are fantastic! can you share the pattern??
I looked everywhere for it- I know it was a free pattern on ravelry but I can’t find it again! I will say its only a garter stitch square that you seam up the side leaving a thumb hole! Super simple and fun!
beautiful post….oozing love of home and family!
