I've been going for long walks every afternoon before I make dinner. After studying all day, I need a break and since the weather is so gorgeous, outside is where I want to be. The fall colours are beginning. We don't have the stunning colours of the eastern part of the continent, but there is enough to satisfy me.
Fall touches in my home bring some of that crisp ambiance indoors. I like to keep things simple. The above arrangement is in the dining room, where this weekend we'll be having turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings.
When I'm in the living room, reading, sewing, or knitting, or even just watching television in the evening, I like to light a candle. This brass bowl is from Ecuador and I bring it out in the fall so I can enjoy its rich warmth.
Today I'm cleaning house and getting ready for our Thanksgiving dinner. We're having it on Saturday night so as not to conflict with in-law dinners. Really, it doesn't matter when we celebrate - it's being together that counts.
