Today I am..

Feeling..balanced. Quiet. Autumn-y; I've been reflecting on a lot and readjusting my life this month, part of that includes big plans for writing, blogging, throwing, and living. Apparently those big plans were a bit too overwhelming to actually begin until now. Today though, half-way through September I think I'm ready.
Seeing..my bright painted teapot and abundant sunflowers.
Smelling.. cold weather and dying leaves. Spicy tea and woodsmoke.
Tasting..cream cheese, smoked salmon, dill, capers and egg. The best omelette ever!
Listening.. to a woman named Rosaria Butterfield talk about her life before conversion, her book, and her passion for hospitality. It's an interesting interview.
Grateful...for a rare nap, for the time of quiet, and for a bright, clear day.
Reading.. The Smitten Kitchen cookbook!!! Oh my goodness this woman is amazing, and she has a blog too!
Loving..the three volunteer pumpkins growing large in our back garden. They look so perfect! I can't wait to see them turn all pumpkin-y orange.
Hoping..for consistency, and an evening of tea and Parcheesi.


  1. Yay, you're back!!

    I have been a terrible shirker regarding my own September plans. Maybe I can do better henceforth, now that it's likely to be raining from here to April. Maybe...

  2. Parcheesi, eh? Have you seen " Paris When It Sizzles....." ? I love how autumn seems to seep through your today post! It's so fresh and crisp! I want a cider now....
