A Little Taste...

Late November and finally a post...  We have been working nonstop unpacking and putting everything in its place.  I barely have had time to decorate.  I did make a simple Thanksgiving vignette tray that you see displayed on the center island in the kitchen.  I wish I had the energy to decorate more but I know it is more important to unpack boxes.  Slowly but surely we will get everything put away.

I had high hopes of making Thanksgiving cards but I could not find the supplies that I needed.  I did borrow some glue from my daughter but I found that it didn't stick very well.  Instead, I bought some simple cards, wrote short notes, and mailed them out.  I hope that everyone receives them before Thanksgiving.

I have received quite a few sweet cards.  They each brought a smile to my face and definitely gave me a cheerful much needed lift.  Thank you!

Now that we have internet (it took a few weeks before they came out to reroute the wires or whatever they had to do), I hope to post more often.  I've missed everyone. xo

A Million Little Things

Friendship isn't a big thing — it's a million little things. ~Author unknown

It feel like forever ago since I last wrote a post.  So much has happened since then.

Last Friday was the closing on the house.  It was a long day.  My daughter accompanied me to the final walk through and closing. My husband stayed in North Carolina to finish up the packing before the movers arrived.  As I had my husband's power of attorney for the closing, I had a lot of signing to do.  There were countless documents that I had to sign as me and then "my husband's name by my name as attorney in fact" on each document.  I'm surprised the pen didn't run out of ink.

If the Path Be Beautiful...

While looking through magazines at Barnes and Noble one day, I came across this lovely quote.  Being rather naive, I immediately thought what a wonderful perspective to have toward life.

And then I remembered...

A story about a little boy and girl who wandered down a beautiful forest path until they came to a house made of gingerbread and candy.  We all know what happened next.

No Matter What the Winds May Bring

Many birds fly south when the autumn winds take there toll.  They leave all behind in search of warmth and a home.  This little sparrow flew north. No matter what the winds may bring, it is north where I will build my nest.

I arrived a few days ago and, for the most part, am quite content.  In a few weeks, all my belongings will arrive and with them all the chaos one has settling in.  Crazy as it seems, I look forward to that.

Until then, I am enjoying long autumn walks.  On Sunday, I walked to this little local coffee shop and treated myself to hot cocoa and a pumpkin muffin.  The weather was brisk but beautiful and I could not bear sitting inside on such a glorious morning.  I dare think this little coffee shop will be a regular stop on my morning walkabouts as I've walked their twice in three days.  Sadly no pumpkin muffin today so it was simply hot cocoa.
