Last week was quite a sunny week. We hardly had any rain. The wet ground finally had a chance to dry out a bit, and there was less mud to go around. But the past few days have brought more rain and wet to us again. I suppose that is why it is so green here (smiles). Over the weekend, the cold weather came in suddenly, making us quite aware that winter is on its way.
Sometimes, in the late afternoon and early evening, the sun looks so amazing. We have seen it in the sky as a huge ball of fire--but the sun is so bright and fire-y that it looks almost red. I took some photos, but they don't do it justice.
Over the weekend I made my first blackberry and apple crumble at my husband's request. He took one bite and started with his Mmm-Mmmmmm!'s, and exclaimed that is was so very good. And yesterday was a very busy day, and dinner was late, but thankfully delicious. I made a new recipe of a "potato" soup, but it really doesn't have any potatoes in it. Instead it is made with cauliflower and radishes, and everyone loved it.
I am thankful to the Lord to have a big old farmhouse to be sheltered in from the elements. We don't get too cold, but sometimes I have to send one child to find another child amongst the many rooms. Our neighbours have told us that our house must be around four hundred years old. This makes our house quite interesting, and I wish I could find out more about the history of it. There are many doors in our home that have been closed off and are no longer usable. There are many old locks with old keys to go along with them.
There is the sound of little pitter-patter feet. Little Ones are waiting for their school lessons, so I must attend to my motherly duties.
Have a blessed day in the Lord.
