At this very moment...

If you came to our house at this very moment you'd find the whole place smelling like tomato soup, the table covered in stuff, the sink full of pots and the dog napping gloomily on the floor.

It's the last weekend of summer and we're spending it at home, puttering. The husband is canning and tending the garden. The kid is playing video games and plucking the partridges. I am baking pies and sorting socks. Not an exciting 'bang' to the end of summer... more like a few comforting lazy-ish days.

I know the kid isn't looking forward to returning to school on Tuesday. On the other hand, I'm looking forward to having a schedule again and being able to clean the house without hearing "Mum! Mum! Mum!" 23 times every ten minutes. On the other, other hand, I'll miss that boy. He's good company, funny, and keeps me on my toes. It'll be awfully quiet without him around.

Ah well, we can all take great comfort in knowing that although the summer has passed, autumn is on the way. Warm wooly sweaters, camp fires, coco, turning leaves and all of that. Not a bad trade if you ask me ;)


  1. Looks like the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I wish I could smell that sauce through my computer :).

  2. Sounds just delightful to me. Wonderful kitchen smells and the prep for the next season is always a very warming thing to me. Enjoy!

  3. This looks really good!
    And all seasons have it's perks I guess. There's always something to look forward to:)

  4. But but but...why is the dog gloomy? It sounds like a perfect end to summer and beginning for fall!
