Embracing Autumn

Yesterday was busy, shopping, into town on what turned out to be a fruitless errand, then on to a friends, lovely garden party, children playing, pimms and cake, chat and laughter.
Today is slow, a chilly, hand knit socks on day, autumn is seriously, firming up her grip.
We have tidied, a little.
Revived, our seasons table.
Roasted more tomatoes with garlic and herbs, ready for the freezer, prepared runner beans for freezing too.
Gorgeous, bountiful crops from our garden.
I foraged in the garden for blackberries and then used them to tuck away a depth of Winter treat, blackberry vodka.
And now, Sunday evening, soup and buttered bagels for supper, knitting and Country File, we're sinking into the season quite well.

Back to Basics - Home Education Planning

Time tables are not how we roll, we do not school at home, we discover, create, learn, grow, develop, play at home, in our community, with friends and without.
We are very flexible, very fluid, suns out, day at the beach, yes I think so.
September, always has that pull for me though, fresh starts, new thoughts, ideas and a touch of planning.
So we drew up a list of ideas for the season ahead and hung it up as a reminder, a guide.
We'll see where it takes us.
