On Saturday morning a rainy trip to the market meant very few people wondering around and a few farmers offering us a deal here and there. It also meant time to chat with farmers, who were more than happy to share some of their secrets with me. So, yes we did get wet, but it was so worth it. The rest of the rainy day was spent at home. There was some baking, a little tomato processing, some crafting, a game or two, and a ton of paper airplanes made and thrown about. We enjoyed a quiet evening once the little man was tucked in...a little reading, a little listening, a little knitting and lots of hot tea.
The traditional pancake breakfast began our day on Sunday and the rest of the day was pretty chill. A walk in the woods, enjoying wild blackberries trail side, a little afternoon tea with my parents, a visit with my in-laws and then back home for a bowl of homemade soup and bread for dinner.
The days here are shifting. Darkness comes earlier each night, covers are pulled up on the bed at night, the house is a little chilly in the morning, soup has been on the menu a few times this week and the kettle is seeing more action as I try to keep my mug full of hot tea. Fall is coming, and I think I am finally ready for it.
How was your weekend?
