Oh boy! Am I ever so excited about it being the first day of September! It marks the start of autumn for me, a season full of wonderfulness!
Back to school lessons, apple picking (happening already), a changing landscape filling with autumnal colours, jamming (already been happening here).
|Last Years Mum's|
I get to pull out my autumn decor and slowly start decorating my home, I get to buy my pots of autumn Mum's - I have been holding off since seeing them in the shops - but it's September now so this week I am giving myself permission to go and buy a few and bring them home!
Further on into autumn we get to look forward to our church's Harvest Festival and autumn walk, frosty mornings, a trip to pick our own pumpkins, delicious pumpkin soup and pies, Guy Fawkes, crunchy leaf walks, the smell of garden refuse bonfires, misty morns - oh my!
But before we get there, this week holds enough goodness for us to enjoy. As this is our last week of holidays before lessons start up again in full, (we have started back at math already) we are going to make the most of our last few days of 'freedom'.
We are going to:
The girls are going to go bowling with friends
Sight-seeing with grandma
Lots of sewing and stitching
Clear out the school room and get it freshened up for the new school year
Buy those mum's
Go for a lovely early autumn walk in the woodlands
Harvest the last of the summer veg
Go shopping for some cooler weather woollies
Do a spot of Pinterest autumn project planning ;)
Stock the cookie jars with home made cookies - yum
Enjoy a new months OHC newsletter and
finish up our lesson plans for the new school year. (LOVE planning!!) :)
Lastly, before I wrap up this post, this weeks stitching project is this little autumn number...
I've made a good start already, I hope to be finished stitching by the end of the week and then it's time to finish up this and the last little autumn stitchery shared here and get them ready to display.
So a busy week here at Moor View Cottage in the nicest possible way :)
Hope your week is off to a FABULOUS start!
Blessings to you all...
