my favourite season

When I leave the house in the morning the air is crisp and the sky full of light wind which makes me dizzy. I put the heating on in the car. The heating is on in the morning in the house too, just to take the edge off when you slip out of bed.

Leaves are slowly starting to turn yellow, red and brown. Flocks of birds are migrating in the sky. In the evening time is suspended while the sun sets, as Baby and I watch from the comfort of our warm and cosy home.
Pubs and restaurants have already started advertising their Christmas menus, and over on the Posie Gets Cozy website, ornament kits are being assembled. Autumn is here, and I couldn't be happier!
Over here, not much is new. I promised a post this weekend, and...well...I nearly managed! This evening I have to charm the man of the house into giving me a few free minutes to pen these words. Nothing new, as I said. Time still escapes me like when you pick up a fistful of sand at the beach and it all disappears through your fingers. Still, I am working hard on trying to complete my next baby playmat and have tried to do a few stitches every night week.

Today's wish list

I wish time would stop for a few days and I could catch up with sooooo many things that needs my attention.
I wish I had more time to do silly sweet little nothings. Things I said I would do but haven't got round to doing yet...grrrr!
I have wished for two minutes to write this post for so many days, it's actually laughable. And yet I have to go, keep going.

This weekend, I promise, I will make time to come back here properly. Till then, ciao, the storm that has become my life shows no respite, and I must attend to it. Luckily, I got a nice bunch of autumn-coloured flowers to appease the eye when I get home in the afternoon!

time flies

Time flies at great speed at the moment. Juggling baby, home and work at the same time is quite a challenge! But then I always knew it was going to be this way.
In the midst of this very busy start of term (and a new chapter in our lives) it's sometimes hard to stay focused on creative projects started a while ago. Last night I finally started quilting my new baby quilt, and what a mammoth job this is going to be with our new schedule...but I have faith, and if all goes well and I manage to discipline myself enough over the next few days, it should be done quickly.
I figure, if I don't stick to a good regime now, I never will, so- onwards and upwards. At least Baby is sleeping well, so we get to have our rest at night (I'm so happy she loves her sleep as much as we both do!)

So, school started again two weeks ago, and as you can tell my my absence here, it's been uber busy. Somehow, though, I found time to make a couple of pick-me-ups. well, a girl's got to have her happy treats, right? And Mr Lavender is not one to complain about having cakes to eat, so I made my autumnal blackberry cheesecake and my regular go-to chocolate cake. Good stuff!
