Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #133

DSCN3546Happy Fall!  I feel like with the time change it has really hit me that autumn is here and Thanksgiving is around the corner.  I LOVE Thanksgiving.  It is my favorite of all holidays. I am finding myself in a total nest mode this week! Shortly I will transition to holiday mode and I will be baking, cooking, crafting, sewing and decorating.  For now, I will take just getting things in order around here.

Speaking of getting things in order makes me think of renovations and remodels since we are in the midst of those too. That explains why I was so taken by this AWESOME idea from Dawna at Prairie Girl. 

Look at this fantabulous decorating idea she and her hubby had in a room they are renovating!  Is this not the best?  It makes me want to go out to the pole barn and find a ladder, a wall and transform it to be as cute as this!

Thursday Musings: Nesting this Week

DSCN3557I am in a total nest mode right now.  Cleaning up, putting things in order, not starting anything new.

Perhaps I am getting ready for the holiday season and all that comes with it.  I love to cook, bake, make gifts, have family in and decorate for the holidays.  But I am not quite there yet.  I have been perusing magazines and the web for menus. Pinterest and fabric stores for craft ideas. I am just not ready to move into action yet.  Ever happen to you?

This happens to me at change of season and maybe the time change this weekend kicked me into really believing autumn is here.  Some folks dislike loosing an hour in the spring.  I actually love that because it means lots and lots of daylight in the evening.  I would trade the extra hour of sleep I get last weekend for the extra light at the end of the day.  All week I have felt a bit off in the evening.  I just want my jammies on and a glass of wine or tea by 6:30 p.m. 🙂 I want to curl up and read and snuggle.

I really welcome this though.  I am a really busy, active person.  I have difficulty sitting still and I am always discovering new things to do and try.  To have a little downtime right before I know I will kick it up in full swing is needed and welcome. I am enjoying looking at the leaves fall from the trees, the clouds rolling in and out, the temps that make you want a sweater one moment and a t-shirt the next.  Things are quiet and active at the same time.

It makes me think of what I really enjoy doing.  Playing in my garden and picking food for dinner is so rewarding and we are still doing that thankfully.  I love being a wife and momma.  My daughter (27 years) visited this weekend and I loved making her breakfast, taking her shopping, covering her with a blanket, etc.  I love sewing and my crafts.  I love cleaning and emptying the dishwasher and doing all the laundry. I think I love things that are quiet and active all at the same time too.

It doesn’t mean that loud and screaming fun is not great!  But for this week, reflecting, musing, being a little quiet and nesting is where it is at for me.  How are you doing this week?

Happy Unleashing…in a quiet sort of way this week. 🙂
