Good Morning

The other two members of our cat family, MamaCat and Brownie.

My favorite season and what it means for me.

Recovering from the heat of Summer and preparing for the cold of Winter.
Cleaning, clearing, purging, reorganizing.
Finding a new rhythm for my days, developing new habits.
Knitting socks.
Buying winter squash, apples, turnips, sweet potatoes and greens at the farmer's market.
Making soups, stews and chili.
Hot tea instead of iced coffee.
Baking more than just our daily bread.
Cooler nights spent snug under my new blanket.
Much better sleep in a quiet room (no fan running).
New craft projects (Christmas gifts).
Clear sunny days, cool crisp air.
Watching the leaves change color.
Happy, more active cats, enjoying the cooler temperatures.
Dark mornings and early evenings. 
Wearing long pants around the house again, and socks!
Raking leaves in the front yard.

What does Fall mean for you?

Happy Birthday!

Our "Kittens" are 1 year old today which makes them officially adults. Here they are with there momma enjoying a special birthday breakfast.

There were 8 bowls but MamaCat and Brownie did not want any.

The item to make for September in the SewingRoomSewAlong was a sewing case, any kind. I thought this pattern looked easy and interesting and stitched it up yesterday. It is easy enough to make but next time I make a bigger version of it.

Here is Jackie's reaction to yesterday's sewing efforts. Come on now, it was one of "those" days but it was not that bad.
