"I am not a homemaker because I had too little ambition or education to make anything else of myself. No—I am a homemaker because God has given me the infinite honour of being a wife, and I delight in employing every ability that He has equipped me with in this glad career. I LOVE BEING HOME."

Around here autumn means birthdays! Our Nephew turned eight this past sunday, monday Isaiah turned seven, Hannah turns three on friday and we have a tea party planned.

Aunts, uncles, more nephews, friends, in-laws and Imanuel on November 5th, so many people to celebrate between now and Christmas. If I become scarce now and again it is probably because I am knitting, sewing, crocheting,baking , or cooking something for someone's big day.

Autumn is truly birthday season around here and it is one of my favorite times of the year.  No snow (yet) , and no scorching sun rays. Mild uneventful weather. All the non home learners are back to class and places like the science centre and the museum are quiet again. Apple from the farm to my pies. We enjoy apple crisp, apple cider, fresh apple juice, apple sauce; we like apples.

Early autumn sunsets from our high-rise so pleasing to my eyes. A new sets to knit and crochet. Hats, scarves and mitts times six. Getting a headstart on making Christmas gifts, it is less than 100 days away (92 to be exact).
