*~*The First Fire For This Winter*~*

It's my favorite time of the year - "Winter"! I love being able to light the fire and enjoy its cosy comforts, especially the first fire of the year - like last night's! Somehow this time of the year bring me so much joy; the leaves have turned golden, the nights are getting longer with more time to snuggle, it is time for homemade soup and stews... and the list could go on - I just love it! 
I also love baking in the winter - our home smells like love. I think there is something special about the smell of homemade goodies like bread, biscuits (cookies), soup, apple crumble and apple pies! 
Life is just more wonderful in Winter... now I just need it to snow ☃️- however I don't think that will happen here... Perth is just too darn hot!

*~*Another One Getting Done*~*

Well, today I am working on the next three chairs that I am doing for our kitchen; life has been so busy and I haven't gotten back to them till now!
Joshua fractured a bone in his foot (5th metatarsal) at Barbagallo raceway watching the V8's, and then developed a dreadful rash, so needless to say my life has been very busy. That coupled with the sad fact that my precious Mama was admitted to hospital the same day with fluid in her lungs, Mr A and I have not stopped. However, as busy as it has been here at "Pink Rose Cottage", it has also been good! Life has a habit of going on and keeping us busy. I am currently reading "The Simple Home" by Rhonda Hetzel. It is a wonderful book and I am really enjoying it!

Mama is out of hospital and doing well even though she is very tired. We have had wonderful news: my Sister is coming over in a week to spend sometime with us all, so that is wonderful, and I am looking forward to seeing her and spending time catching up!
Well, I am off to put a loaf of bread on and finish one of the chairs. Dinner is cooked; I just need to dish it and then it will be ready to be enjoyed by my family! 
As I am typing this out I can hear the mulcher going; Mr. A is mulching up some garden rubbish and turning it into garden treasure. We are hoping to put in a veggie garden in a couple of weeks so we can be a little more self-sufficient!

I got to add another pebble to my weight loss jar today - it is such a wonderful feeling!
