Happy National Coffee Day!
As luck would have it, I’ve been wanting to share my fall coffee with you. What better day than today?
Fall Favorite Coffee
Coffee brewing is always a good reason to get out of bed. Now that it’s fall, I add a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice to my cup. Ahh…
Do you have a favorite chair where you drink your coffee? Mine is in the family room.
Fall Favorite Spot
During the cool mornings we’re having right now, my fall favorite spot for first morning coffee is the front porch.
Reading my Bible is always part of my morning, so what better place than outside enjoying sounds of geese flying overhead and honking? (True signs of fall, y’all!)
Fall Favorite Sweet Bread
Fall baking is kicking into gear. Lisa published this delicious pumpkin bread recipe on TheT2Women blog.
It is so moist and sweet, and it turns out perfect every time. This bread is excellent with coffee in the morning, as a snack, or for dessert. Yum!
As a bonus, the recipe makes three loaves, which gives you plenty to share.
Favorite Useful Companion
After telling you about nearly burning down our house (Live in the Moment), I pulled out my old timer to ring the bell to remind me of something on the stove or in the oven. (My phone alarm malfunctions too often to trust it!)
I visited Mom 2 early in September and did a little painting for her. No good deed goes without reward! She sent me home with several things she wanted to get rid of.
Mom 2’s bedside table nicely replaces the old trash can, don’t you think? Before…
The family room has a few new things – a couple of them from Mom 2. I kept my eyes open for something to hang over the window, along with something long and narrow beside the drapery panel.
God works things out so beautifully when we wait for Him to help decorate. He orchestrates the best gifts to use in decorating, things that mean something to us (rather than just stuff. )
Here’s a close-up of the iron piece over the window.
Notice the new grouping on the table beside the sofa.
Charles Faudree’s influence of laying things is beginning to show.
This antique tractor wrench was inside HH’s grandfather’s Hand-Made Tool Chest. Talk about a huge paper-weight!
Dried berry vines on the mantel from Summer to Fall Table of Transition. Looking more like fall, y’all.
Another tool nearby, too. Do you see it?
Ha! Does this remind you of my project studio window? I don’t know what these are called…big scissors, farm trimmers, or what?
Moving back out to the porch, did you notice a new pumpkin?
Or two? Wal-Mart had a great price for these nice big pumpkins. The porch needs orange for fall, after all.
Have you set out your pumpkins? Any fall baking yet?
