Waiting for Autumn……..

Hello everyone! PineRidge Hills took the summer off but we are back and in full swing, ready to take long walks along the lake and gather crimson and gold oak leaves and acorns.  The crackling of a campfire,  the sounds of giggling children and the warmth of a wool blanket….all true signs that we are waiting for Autumn….. And yes it is slowly coming up the mountain…..

The cool, brisk air with the sweet smell of freshly mowed grass and the Marigold’s taking their last bow, and the squirrels hiding their winter’s dinner are all activities that I just rejoice in……As you can tell this is absolutely my time of year!

But I am determined that she have it before Thanksgiving! here is my Old Glory quilt that I’m working on…..

I’ve been busy sewing, catching up on my reading, baking and cooking….we’ve had a few weekend guests, and for the last three weeks I’ve been nursing our little Westie  Duncan back from a nasty fall which resulted in surgery four weeks ago, and recovery will take till the second week of November….so I’ve been a tad “Close to home bound”….we are very optimistic he will have a full recovery…he is already King of the Deck” and demanding that all wildlife adhere to his outdoor rules!

The small farm behind us now has some new tenants! Baby goats, lambs, Guinea Hens, a whole slew of “Mother Gooses'”, roosters and ducks….I’m hoping the horses will also move in! the Country Farmer even built a beautiful fence all around to keep his crew from visiting too often…
