Capturing Contentment in the Everyday…


Autumn is officially here, huzzah!


Unfortunately, we heralded the First Day of Fall by coming down with colds.  I was the last man standing for a while, succumbing on Monday just as Haus Meister was on the mend.  Rascal asked over the weekend why I wasn’t sick while everyone else was.  I told him it was the Providence of a Merciful God not to take out both parents at the same time. 😉

The Cream of Chicken Soup recipe from this book made us very happy over the weekend.


This is blurry, I know.  He’s in the process of demonstrating how the carpenter loop on his jeans makes an admirable sword sheath/holder.


A creative moment.  As I took the picture, I caught someone in the act of forgetting the rule about “only coloring on paper.”  This is why I only buy washable crayons.

  1. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, but it’s too bad that it often ushers in a series of colds and allergies! 😦 Comfort food is the best though! Hopefully you are all better now!
    By the way, I love the way your wreath is simple, but tasteful–perfect for the fall!

  2. I hear you about the washable crayons, markers, etc. I do the same thing and encourage (read insist) grandparents buy the same. I noticed your canning craze on the side column–our strawberry preserves are gone, too!
