Fall Homemaking...


Fall homemaking is much like homemaking any time of year.  There's the regular cleaning, the laundry, the dishes, the floors and the like.  What makes fall homemaking unique for me is the feeling of nesting that I get as the breezes become cooler, the colors become warmer, and the days become shorter. 

I want to open my windows more to let in fresh cool air.  I want to bring in the warmth of pumpkin oranges, maple leaf reds, and wildflower golds.  I want to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book at the end of the day as the darkness falls earlier and earlier.

I also want to fill my home with the aroma of homemade cinnamon rolls with lots of butter, cinnamon, and sugar.  I do this every Friday morning.  I'm up at 4:00, measuring, mixing, rolling and baking.  Praise God, I have a Bosch mixer* that does the kneading for me.  My husband comes home from work around 6:30 a.m. and gets to enjoy a hot roll before making our deliveries.

My husband's taste buds are tantalized by the aroma of garlic and onions sauteing.  He knows homemade soup, chili, stew, spaghetti sauce, or salsa is being created.  Would you believe, I didn't have garlic until I was 14?  Now, I couldn't imagine my kitchen without it.

Ah well, there are so many things I enjoy about this cozy season.  I shall have to share more as time allows.

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you as you trust in Him for salvation, for hope, for your every need.

  3. Oh, this makes me wish I've come up with a sucessful recipe for gluten free cin. rolls, every time I've tried they fail miserably. (well not miserably I just throw the doughy mass into a pan and call it cin. cake.) I'm going to have to try a new recipe now, I've got a craving!

  5. Melinda,
    We used to live just a few miles from Opolis! We're in Carthage now. Do you know where Miller Implement is? We lived a mile down the road to the south. I hope you see this comment. I didn't have your e-mail to respond in person.

    Blessings,

  11. Melinda!
    How small a world is this?

    The Medoc Cemetary was right behind our house!

    We were "neighbors"!

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
Laura
