We harvested the carrots from the backyard garden yesterday. Turns out, it was the best season ever. This beautiful array of orange is all packaged up to be delivered to the local food bank this morning. That’s it for the garden, save for a handful of green onions and the marigolds I’ll leave until we get a hard frost.

This morning it’s blustery and cool. I’m just in from taking Maya outside and can testify that it’s a good day to stay snug indoors. Writing? Maybe. Reading? Probably. Painting? It’s such a pain to take things out and put them away for showings that I’m contemplating packing up all my art supplies for the time being. A jigsaw puzzle? No. Because home showings.

It would be a good day to bake an apple pie, but we’re on keto so no pie at this time. There are some videos from a class at our church we have to catch up on, so there’s a distinct possibility we’ll settle in and watch them. Chess? Of course. Probably multiple games. A nap? One of us might succumb (not me).

Looking ahead to the move to Saskatchewan? Absolutely. Praying for a buyer for our home here? That’s a given.


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. “Buyer come soon,” may be my incantation for you this pre-Hallowe’en season. You carrots are gorgeous, Linda! 😀

    1. I’ve never had luck growing carrots until this year so I’m especially delighted with the harvest. I’ll join you in that incantation, Marian.

  2. Linda, the carrot display is lovely. And what good use will be made of those carrots. I’m praying for a solid buyer soon for the Hoyes.

    1. Thank you for your prayers, Sherrey. So appreciated.
