In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?

* C.S. LEWIS, J.R.R. TOLKIEN, SHERLOCK HOLMES, G.K. CHESTERTON, N.D. WILSON, AND P.G. WODEHOUSE, ARE ENCOURAGED

Ordinary Days~

Ah, these last few months seem to have gone by ridiculously fast.  After our first cold blast of autumn the weather warmed up a bit again, and we have had a lovely bit of Indian Summer here ~ warm and windy, and only a spattering of rain.  The vines up the north side of our house are turning dark red and purple-ish colors like the trees lining the streets of our little town.

Our days have been filled with the usual things: school, cooking, baking, cleaning, playing music, writing songs, singing, reading new books (and old books), walking to piano lessons in the falling leaves, and all that sort of thing.  I hope to post more soon, but here are a few pictures from the last several weeks. ~



molasses cookies on the first day of fall
watching Nigella while I bake...
Mama's and mine
picking up the fiddle a bit more lately ~
moving books about,
We moved this bookshelf into the livingroom, and it looks scrumptious there...
The Wind in the Willows ~ what a perfect title, and what a perfect book...

The leaves are turning fast,
Sunrise out Mama's window~
Hmmm... something very sticky and caramel-y that I made recently...

Look-- my trees are almost bare!
