In the pictures above, our cat Senora seems to be trying to keep as far away from those wet hens as possible! The hens may not have been excited, but we feel very blessed to have received three lovely, soaking rain showers which have greened everything up nicely. Even our little fall garden is starting to sprout, which always fills us with wonder and joy.
Our autumn clematis has been showing off the splendor of its highly-scented, fairy-like blossoms. It is quite entrancing in the evening, when the seem to glow with a light of their own!
We celebrated Mr. Graham's birthday recently, and you can see that he had a super time!
The older girls have been watching "Little House on the Prairie," and have opened their own LHOTP school, enacting different characters as the mood strikes. Sometimes Mrs. Oleson is the teacher, and sometimes Mrs. Garvey! I was even "forced" to bake apple pies for them, since we had bought some Jonathan apples, and Jonathan is Mr. Garvey's name. :)
Of course, all this rain has made some really fun puddles to play in, which feel so much better than crusty soil and dried-up leaves!
"Nobody else but the rose bush knows how good mud feels between the toes!"
September's cooler days always give us the urge to do some sewing, so we're getting out dress patterns and fabric that have been gathering dust, and pulling out piles of denim to be made into quilts. Now how in the world do we sew and get the housework done, too?
May you be blessed, dear friends, with health, joy, peace, and prosperity with the start of a new season.
