An Autumn Album.


Trees in their brilliant coloured fall wardrobe!


The slanting rays of the setting sun make for a dappled lane.


The late afternoon sun gilding the already golden hillside.


A new coat of paint for our old house.

The view from my office on a crisp October afternoon.


Even a grey rainy day can’t dim these colours.

Our Granddaughter’s first fall – those red leaves are so fascinating.

Thou that hast given so much to me,

Give one thing more- a grateful heart;

Not thankful when it pleaseth me,

As if Thy blessing had spare days;

But such a heart, whose pulse may be

Thy Praise.                        George Herbert.

More book signings.

Yesterday 7 of the girls from Mennonite Girls Can Cook headed down to
the Barnes and Noble bookstore in Bellingham
to sign cookbooks.

Although sales were a bit slow,
it gave us time to talk with each person that came in.
We were delighted to meet several blogging friends
as well as those who hadn't heard of our blog or the book
but seemed very happy to buy a book.

After leaving the book store we had a fun lunch together
and then drove up to Vancouver
where we signed books again at
the Ten Thousand Villages Store on Commercial drive.

The Ten Thousand Villages Stores across Canada
were celebrating their 65th anniversary.
They had a real celebration going on with live music, and birthday cake.
We enjoyed chatting with those that came by our table
Each had a story to tell and we loved hearing
a little about their lives.

We had a great day with lots of time visit with some of our faithful readers.

Thank you to all who came out to see us.
We appreciate each one of you.
