Fall Cleaning, Calendula and Creative Folks

A bit of fall cleaning has occupied me this week.  Some friends are soon to visit who haven't seen the house since we've "finished" it.  That seemed a perfect reason to get the house in order.  I'm always so happy once it's done, but often need a push to make it a priority, with the days so busy.

I was excited to find the blooming calendula, on a walk with the dogs near the pond this week.  We've had quite a few hard frosts already.  There have also been some warm days and nights, though; warm enough for McNibs to decide to take a dip.  Silly dog!


The movie Grow.  The energy of these young folks is inspiring.
I'm loving this house.  It reminds me of the ones in the Handmade Houses books.

Today I'll be tackling the great room.  Some good music will be in order. Wishing you a wonderful day!
