Simple moments of grace


Friday evening there was to be stuffed acorn squash…I put the squash in a baking pan with a little water and sat down to wait for it…The low light of an early November evening called to me however…So I ended up adding some sweet sausage to the pan and we had a simple and delicious dinner. I had forgotten how delicious acorn squash is as it stands alone without all the brown sugar, cinnamon and whatever else ends up in it.

Saturday afternoon I lunched upon the leftovers with a cup of tea.

We have but one window in the living room of our wee cozy apartment and the windowed back door just opposite it. Through that window shines the most beautiful light~ morning, afternoon, and evening. I’m forever pausing as I pass by because it looks so pretty.

I think it is the simple things that make a house a home. It’s not always granite countertops or whatever the shabby chic/farmhouse/coastal living trend of the day is. Sometimes it’s just a ray of light shining on the eucalyptus.

A diary of home


I love when night falls early.

Low light and shadows in the late afternoon

Early evening -warm fires burning and dinner in the oven

Table set, candles lit, loved ones gathered in

Monday is purple day and jasmine in the diffuser.
