“Happiness is a warm puppy.” ~ Charles M. Schulz


It’s been a productive week putting the gardens to bed. Perfect timing as there was a killing frost a couple of nights ago. Still need to tend to the flowers in the yard and plant the tulip bulbs–special ones in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday next year. Oh, and sow a row or two of spinach that will reward us with sweet greens early next spring.

The freezer is completely (jam-packed and totally!) full,  the canning shelves are stocked, we’ve glimpsed snow on the hills, and I’ve started a little knitting project. We’re heading into the cold dark months. I’m looking forward to afternoons when all I need is a quilt, a book, and a dog beside me to feel content.

Today, a slower day: canning veggie stock, taking a few photos, coffee with my bestie, and tending to some Story Circle Network business.

So tell me, what are you looking forward to with the change of seasons? Anything you’re dreading?


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.

  1. I’m looking forward to quieter, cozy days–and Christmas!–but I’m dreading the long winter when my skin will feel pasty and my stomach bloated and I’ll long for sun. Puppy…so CUTE!
