In June 2016 we sold Cedar Pond and moved over the mountains and far away. We now live in Deer Park , WA where the weather is a bit more extreme than Cedar Pond's and in spite of the challenges we're rejoicing in life in our new home with field and forest just outside our back door. God is so good to us !

Happy And Cozy in Autumn
The cooler rainy weather I love has returned. Not as cool or rainy as a typical western Washington fall , but I'll take any cooler weather than we've experienced for a few months . Now I have a bit of respite from our demanding gardens. The grapes are canned (56 quarts !) and I finally got round to making many pints of yellow plum jam from our Shiro plum trees ; plums I picked , washed, chopped up, and froze earlier this summer. The squashes, carrots, and beans are all harvested .Now I can get down to weaving and spinning the wool of my Jacob sheep.
Happy and cozy days ahead. Have I mentioned I love this season ? Autumn ~ I love you !
( Picture is of my loom in our upstairs landing where I can see my sheep out of the window as I weave.)
