An Autumnal Week

Will you come share a cup of tea with me this evening, dear friends?

I’d love to have you all at my kitchen table, chatting about this week’s projects, and pouring you cups of tea from my red-orange teapot, with the vintage floral teacups from my collection.

Outside my window, the moon is bright, high in the sky, as we head toward the autumn equinox. We savored the cool breezes mixed with the day’s warm sunshine this afternoon on our outing to the library. (I picked up some new seasonal cookbooks!)

The roses are fading, and the fall/winter garden is planted. (Just a small crop of lettuces this year.) We have been putting up jars of spiced peach butter and syrup to bring delight to wintertime breakfasts.

Boxes of early fall apples and pears are “root cellared” in our garage, and are beginning to appear in our meals.  Along with a few apples, squash and yams fill my wire fruit baskets, lending autumnal decor to our kitchen.

I’ve been busy writing an eBook for you, full of our family’s favorite herbal remedies, as well as stocking up the homemade items in our Natural Medicine Kit. I’m hoping to have it ready for you by the end of the month, to give you plenty of time for preparing for the winter.

I have been gradually restocking the shop, and have recently been able to lower the prices! As we begin preparing for the hospitality of winter holidays and gatherings, the reusable bowl covers are wonderful to have on hand, as well as reusable bags or wraps for outings. (If you see something you like, but want it in a different fabric. let me know!)

How are YOU doing?

  • Michelle, you have no idea how delightful sitting down with you to drink a cup of tea and chat about the projects we have been working on! :) I made some cough syrup this past week and now I’m deciding what color I want to make my cloth napkins. Thank you for your wonderful blog! You are such an encouragement to me. Blessings to you today!!!

  • I wanted to sit down and have a warm cup a tea with you so bad :-) You make a person feel like they just came home. I love visiting your blog! It is time for the earth to rest a bit.

    I have started (just barely) a new blog and want you to know if you can use anything off of it to feel free. I love to share and that is what it is all about!

    May God bless you! I love you! Grandma Patty Ann

  • I’m sitting here with a cup of tea now, friend. We are doing very similar things here! Just put potatoes and tomatoes into the basement, herbs are drying, and the fall lettuce is coming along great here. :)

  • This week I’ve been busy! I took a Systematic exam (I’m finishing a seminary degree at Southern), repaired 5 bumgenius diapers that I had purchased cheap cheap at a used diaper sale, and spent the day today hanging out with my wonderful husband and little boy. We walked to the library (2 miles) and I’m looking forward to perusing some new craft books this week, sewing an apron tomorrow for a friend getting married, and preparing to leave on Saturday for an out of town wedding for a friend. :)

  • Love your blog! So many good ideas and recipes! I wish it were cool enough to sit down with a cup of tea. It’s still getting up to 90+ degrees here! C’mon, fall! Oh well, have a cup of tea for me.

    @Lisa, Maybe an iced tea, then? :)

    Thank you!

  • Iced tead! Great idea. Why didn’t I think of that? I’d love some kombucha but I’m waiting (not so patiently) for my scoby to get going.
