hello its

November

""The breezes taste Of apple peel. The air is full Of smells to feel- Ripe fruit, old footballs, Burning brush, New books, erasers, Chalk, and such. The bee, his hive, Well-honeyed hum, And Mother cuts Chrysanthemums. "."
~John Updike

A brand new month to reset, refocus and go for it. Over the past few months I've slipped out of my usual routines. A fresh start is always good. Just starting my day squeezing in a morning walk or simple yoga flow makes a big difference in getting back to routine.
Fall weather is not as far off as it seems and I am getting ready for the cooler temperatures in the garden. There are a few cooler weather veggies that you can still plant...fava beans, radishes, greens like arugula and swiss chard are some that I added. I am still getting lots of peppers and eggplants but sadly, my tomatoes and cucumbers are finished.

Now is also the season to order bulbs! There is nothing more cheerful in early spring to have a garden full of flowers. Have you ordered your bulbs yet? They seem to sell out so quickly these days. What are you planting? Besides the normal daffodils and tulips, this year I've ordered some new ones that I am excited about: Imperial Fritillaries, Erythroniums, Anemones, and a bunch of Summer Snowflakes and Thalia daffodils to mix together for a happy display by our ponds at both the cabin and at home. (I hope to finish the cabin pond garden before winter too! Follow me on IG at LittleBlueCabin_InTheWoods for updates.)

Thank you for your patience in waiting for new handmades. They are a coming! As with getting back to the routine, I have my monthly to-do list going again, and on it are a few surprise pumpkin pieces! With the cooler autumn weather also comes the yummy warmer foods. I am blogging weekly again too! (Its on my list!) Later this week you can find a recipe for Simple to make Vegan French Breakfast Puffs that are simply to die for! They just melt in your mouth with cinnamony goodness, and are perfect for a little treat with a hot cup of tea, Next week you will find a little Fall house tour on how I like to decorate by easing into the different seasons with just slight changes around the home. I hope to inspire you to not stress about decorating. Small, easy changes can make things feel fresh again!

As I have alway said, I trust in the Lord with all my heart and am so thankful for my faith, and being a woman of God. I know that He has blessed me greatly with all of you! Your kindness and friendship means more than you will ever know.

Happy October! I would love to hear...what are you looking forward to the most this month?

Love always,
