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.)

You mention a cozy autumn ... I must say that your loom with its beautiful red yarn being woven into something lovely is very cozy. Will you work away at this piece as the days outside grow colder?

Wishing you a beautiful day...

What a beautiful loom :)
Autumn does seem like the perfect time to work with wool!

How wonderful to see this lovely space where you create using the wool from your own sheep.

I loved reading about what you did with your garden harvest.

Our weather was a bit cooler yesterday, gray and windy. Today it is partly cloudy and breezy.

That window gives you a perfect place to work even when the snow is falling. I bet the jam tastes great. You work very hard to get all of that prepared and canned.

It is a good feeling to get the things that need to be done......done and then to sit and do what you enjoy working on! I love the way your loom and creative spot looks! Keep enjoying the wonderful weather!

What a lovely place to sit and weave! It must feel so satisfying to get all that canning done!

As much as I love gardening Kathy, I'm glad we live in a climate where there is a break and other things can take our attention. Such a vibrant red on your loom, enjoy these cozy fall days.

Back again, just saw Thistle's skull and thought - what is this? How sad you lost the ram you had high hopes for. Can you imagine if our babies rammed us for milk? Yikes.

You are a busy farm woman; I really admire all the work and love you put into your life. My mom just sold her loom, but she got many years of enjoyment out of it, and seeing yours reminds me of her weaving. I do love autumn, too, my favorite season of all.

Your garden produce is a lot of work and keeps you very busy, but it is so rewarding to enjoy the results of your labor. Autumn is a lovely season.
