Slow Fall Weekend

Our recent long weekend started with lots of gray weather and rain, I started a batch of Homemade Apple Cider and, as you can imagine, our house smelled amazing! These were the only pictures I took the entire weekend. We celebrated David's birthday, stayed home a lot, watched a movie, I read a book and did a little thrifting.

It was ordinary and slow. It was glorious not to have a big agenda! We ate cereal for breakfast and leftovers for lunch, inspiration struck for some updates I've been wanting to make to the girls room! It was not overly productive or life-changing but we were ourselves and together and that is such a gift, my friends!

To be able to be completely yourself, and at rest in that, alongside your loved ones - a gift indeed!

What are your favorite things to do on a day when you have more flexibility and freedom from your regular schedule?

Sounds like a dream weekend! We never have time like that, it's the price of having a farm. We do enjoy our weekends because usually the whole family is together. Our sons come & help with the never ending list of projects, orchard clean up or equipment servicing. I usually have a big meal each day so our table gatherings are important. It's a family affair.

I am so wanting apple cider donuts. Since you have your cider made are you going to attemp making some? I bought some cider this week & hope to try my hand at a recipe tomorrow for the donuts.

Love your pictures!
