Anemones Before the Frost
Last week, before the frost, I picked most of the flowers left in the back yard, and brought them into the house to enjoy. These are a perennial called anemones, or wind flowers. They flourished for the first time since I planted them three years ago. What a joy they have been. I can't get enough of them.
We moved back from the lake and are now at home, and have made great progress on the kitchen upgrade. As you can see in the photo, there is lot more light coming in since we cut down the trees between us and our neighbor.
However, the ceiling lighting is not yet installed, and the new cabinets don't arrive until after Thanksgiving, which delays the backsplash. Aarrgh. And no window treatments yet. The new pantry doesn't have shelves. The list never ends, it seems.
Nonetheless, we are already enjoying the new, improved space. As soon as the stove was hooked up again, I made no-knead bread and a good soup (Italian Sausage with lots of veggies). We eat by candlelight -- which has been nice.
And Tom is back in the kitchen, too. He is going to make meat loaf today.
Things are returning to a new normal.
