Quiet days in the yard and gardens have appeared quite suddenly. I knew it was around the corner and I even relished the thought of a gardening break when I was elbows deep in tomato saucing. But, I'm feeling a bit blue. My fingers are actually clean, no more pore deep dirt stains.
I have dug out the zucchini, squash and cucumbers. I've cleared space for the garlic when it arrives. The baby bear pumpkin produced some cuties, so they were the last item to harvest.
And now, I must face the pile of unfinished crocheting projects from last winter. I am a poor excuse for a fiber artist but it keeps me busy and makes me feel like I'm doing something in the evenings. I do dream of learning how to make cute crocheted flowers and leafs, something to add to my Etsy shop in the spring time.
Next year is going to bring quite a few changes to our little family unit. I'll be writing about those more this fall. But for now, I'm enjoying the quiet of the drizzly day and then I'll get moving as my mother is coming to visit tomorrow. Housecleaning must commence!
