Preparations for Fall :: a life collection

It's about there... being fall. My absolute favorite time of year! I really enjoy the cooling days and nights, the colors beginning to turn and that over whelming feeling to 'squirrel' things away for the winter. But these days have me bouncing from one project to another, leaving me little time for online visits and in depth fall preparations at all.

And when I am searching the web...  it's all about RV remodel. I know, a girl has to do what a girl has to do, but secretly I would rather be canning veggies or milking goats... however, in all honesty, I am squeaking a few fall::ish preps in here and there. Helping me to stay seasonal and in fair weather.

There's the Seed Harvest:


It's Calendula! We could not let these little gems go forsaken, so in a hurry I snipped them from our plants at the community garden and I plan to sort them... soon. I would like to send you to visit a lovely blog, where JES shares about Calendula and a whole more! You will not be disappointed...

The Latest Issue of The Biblical Herbal:

(see side bar for affiliate link ~ if your interested)

I really like the cover, and the inside pages are filled with wonderful {quality} herbal goodness... I am currently on page 4. Did you know that anyone who purchases the Fall Issue receives a free bonus, it's an 11-page pdf created by contributing herbalist Rosanna King - a Herbal Menstruum Guide: Preferred alcohol concentration of menstruums for extracting over two hundred herbs.

The Continuing Tomato Harvest:


To me the tomato speaks for it's self. Indigo Blush. Two Bites. Now added to my list of things I would like to grow each year...

And Sukkot:


A very bad picture of our sukkah. Yes, it's made out of popsicle sticks and yes, that 'person' is made from a clothes pin... and yes, there really is a miniature paper chain hanging in there. It's what we can do in this season.

Finally, the Motor-home Remodel:


Alright, that might not be a fall::ish preparation. But it is something that we have been doing... okay it's been something that we have been working on a LOT. The hubby, half of which you see in this photo... is attempting to remove a piece of particle board. Sawing one inch at a time... by hand.

It took him almost an hour to remove one board.

One large board.

The good news. The motor home is completely gutted, and rebuilding has commenced. I hope to take better photos soon and share... until then:

~  Blessed Fall Y'all!

P.S. There was also a wedding anniversary, with a date night and special dessert the day of. Sixteen years... where has the time gone! Thank you Father in Heaven, for my husband. Thank you...
