The seasons of a simple spirit

Welcome November

Dull November brings the blast

Then the leaves are whirling fast

Q is for....


~ ~ ~
I love this time of year

we settle into our comfortable chairs of an evening

early nesting with those we love the most

reading by a fire

knitting a sweater....or the dream of a sweater

and then we snuggle up in fuzzy flannel

and pull our favorite quilts up over us.

Perhaps the floor is cold on your toes when you rise

but  the smell of warm coffee and the crispness of Autumn
lure you out of your bed and into the day

where there's bright chrysanthemums in the street side markets

and roundish orange pumpkins on every corner

I am thankful for the beauty of Autumn in New England.

It cloaks me in peacefulness and quietude.



  1. Your post makes me dream of that kind of autumn. It is still pretty hot where I live. With the drought, our leaves are crusty brown and lack the color that make this time of year my favorite. However, I do have pumpkin crunch prepared for dessert tonight, and pumpkin spice in my coffee this morning. I'll do my best to make it feel like autumn! #coffeeforyourheart friend
