Moments in Time

Do you ever have days when you feel just incredibly content? When your little world is just as it should be and you wouldn't change a thing? I had a day like that yesterday and I took some pictures along the way to share with you. 

Ramses making a nest in the pine needles Daniel was about to clean up.  

Pine cones from the garden. They all came down during the recent windy days and now look pretty in the house. 
A picture of peace: all three animals in one spot. Can you spy them all? Just click on the picture to make it bigger. That huge begonia we grew from one leaf that we picked somewhere in town last year.
Louie being very intense.  In reality, he was just stretching toward me to be petted. He loves to cuddle.
The last hydrangeas on the window sill in the kitchen (I love that picture of Daniel in Ireland).
The last of the purple basil picked and ready to be used in our favorite Thai chicken dish next week.
Surprise yarn I got in the mail. I had ordered a super cheap packet of five skeins of this cotton yarn, but the color was going to be a surprise. It couldn't have been more perfect for me! And each skein is over 300 yards long, so there's enough for a nice project or two!
Now to the food! The chicken broth I made on Friday was transformed into a delicious chicken noodle veggie soup yesterday ~ to eat next week and for the freezer for later.
Fresh out-of-the-oven pumpkin pie I made on Friday.
Last night I made a green salad with pears, blue cheese and walnuts...
and risotto with crispy sage leaves and pears.
Nothing grand, but somehow everything felt special. A day to be savored. And that I did.

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday!!
