journal pages

Fall is making it’s intentions known.  Although not fully here, the signs of New England autumn are here; air is cooling down, the colors are becoming crisp, and a sneak of color is beginning in the trees.  Fall plans on wooing us, and delighting all the senses with it’s loveliness.

Each change of the season brings desire, and longings for very specific simple pleasures.  In the fall, it’s apples, pumpkins, collecting leaves, soaking up the bright blue sky of perfectly beautiful days.  Pulling out the sweaters and crocheted throws.

There might be more time to journal with fresh new things to record.  I have a new one started that I thought I would share today.



The recipe is in the envelope.


Quotes from Kitchen Table Wisdom a beautiful book.


My favorite magazine for pretty pictures is the British edition of Country Living Magazine. 

Let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise


The fabric piece is from my mom’s scrap box and I had a twirly skirt made from it when I was a little girl.


I aim to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way. Earnest Hemingway

I do what my heart tells me to do.  I surround myself with beautiful things.  Hilde Leiaghat 


Mom and Seth made homemade biscuits on Saturday.  For lunch we had cream of broccoli soup and biscuits.  Later on, we harvested a butternut squash and roasted it in the oven….creamy, sweet, and delicious.


Spending time with Grandma.  We’ve visited enough this summer that even timid Sarah feels comfortable enough to make herself at home.


We spent a quiet, rainy afternoon together.  Coffee in a Peacock blue fiesta mug. 


This is what my table looks like this morning.


Cats make everything seem cozier. 


Have a wonderful and God blessed Monday.

I’ll be puttering around the homeplace and running to the store later on for this week’s groceries.

  1. i really enjoyed this post.  i have been trying to journal the past few years and it seems to always end up being where i write down only what bothers me. 😦 you have inspired me to start fresh today and begin a praise journal. i have so much to be thankful for and i’m afraid my journal does not always reflect that.  thank you–karen

  2. i love those journals you put together~ and can i say, i love your mom too! i’ve never met her, but have grown to love her through what you’ve shared of her here! she’s one of those women i just feel i could sit and talk with and glean so much from!!
