Homemaking Mondays: What Remains


I'd love to share with you some of what remains from 
The heavy frosts have come back and the snow is starting
to touch the mountain tops again.
The leaves are starting to fall and at times
the gusts of wind bring a huge shower of them 
and it's beautiful!

The last of the garden has been harvested 
although there are still calendula 
blossoms that keep coming. 

The colours are beautiful and the air crisp.
It's a wonderful time to walk in the forest.
We've been out low bush cranberry picking.
Some have been made into jam and some frozen
and some just eaten fresh...before getting to the buckets. 
There is just one more harvest market at our community centre
where I sell some jam and relish. 

I have finished the scarf I shared with you last time. 
I don't think it'll be long before I need to be using it. 
Almost time to pull out the woolies and warm coats.
The darkness is coming back as well. 
It's beautiful at night to see the stars again. 

So what remains where you are? 
What is happening in your lives right now?
I hope you are enjoying a lovely fall time and what remains 
of your summers. 
For me it amazes me how the Lord has created the seasons.
How things seem to flow into one another.
Love and Prayers,

Like you we are still enjoying a few remains of the garden produce. The dark is drawing in earlier and earlier and the temperatures are dropping a little.

That is a pretty butterfly! I don't know many butterfly species, but, I am going to take a stab at what kind of butterfly it is. Dog's Face? If you know what kind it is, let me know if I got it right or wrong. ;)
I am glad we, too, live in a part of the globe where we can experience 4 seasons. :)
What is in the bowl with your Calendula? Is it parsley? Whatever it is it looks pretty with the bright orange of the flower heads.

I looked up the butterfly. I was definitely wrong! Now I would guess a Question Mark Butterfly or a Comma Butterfly. They are very similar. I can't tell the difference very easily.

Fall is beautiful. Warm coats and mitts come out. The crunch of dry leaves under foot remind us of school days.
