I'm not a fan of random photo dumps, but despite the fact that I've been absent from this space for a week, I haven't had time for taking many photos. My husband and I have been working on our first Airbnb rental and we had a deadline to meet. It has been several stressful months of hard work for my husband, completing remodeling the entire house. I contributed ideas, painting, cleaning, and decorating, things that can be done with one eye and ear on the little babe. We are in the process of completing the second bedroom and doing a bit more decorating to fill it in a bit, but it is ready to rent! We had our first guests on Saturday night and everything went well, so now we're ready for more. If you're interested, here is the link to The Bright and Cheery Cottage. I am jealous of the kitchen - it is much nicer than my own! And now for my random photos.
Plenty of Pennsylvania Longneck Squash - this is only half of the harvest. Muffins, cakes, fritters, cookies, soup, smoothies - we're not orange yet!
Fresh ginger - not quite as much as I'd like, but oh well, it was a first year "let's see if it actually grows." It grew a little. Enough for one quart of fresh gingerade and then I added the strained ginger pieces to applesauce - very yummy.
Pretty afternoon light and natural Autumn decorations. Leaves have been dipped in beeswax and strung into a garland, acorns are gathered on every walk, and I've been told our grapevine wreath is too bare, so we're on the lookout for some vines with berries.
Make it a happy week!
