Autumn is my favorite time of year. I just had to take a picture of this ornamental cabbage in my flower bed. I planted it in the spring as a seedling and it so beautiful right now. I just thought I would  share the picture.

Last night I hosted a dinner gathering for our little sewing group. I always have the autumn one as this is my favorite time of year. I am pretty sure this is our 6th year of having these dinner/sewing gatherings. We take turns having them at each other's homes. We have appetizers, wine, dinner and then we hand sew until we get tired enough to go home. The menu last night consisted of Butternut squash and apple soup, broccoli and cheese quiche, mushroom and spinach quiche, mixed salad greens, and pumpkin pie and caramel banana cake served with hot tea for desert. Appetizers were served ahead of the meal, three cheese and onion dip with veggies and hot garlic, onion and asiago cheese dip with crackers. I think we all had a great time. I don't think I'll be able to eat until tonight. I am still full :)

The cabin is just about finished, just have to put the side windows in and it will be complete. The inside will be finished, but not until next year. I have had lots of questions as to how it is coming, so here is a picture I took today. It was such a gorgeous day today.

We call these two horses "Two Peas in a Pod". Magic has been here for almost two years and the other horse is a standardbred mare that I recently adopted to be a companion for Magic after our Clydesdale mare "Dolly" passed away last April.
Her name is "Corey" and she is enjoying her new life tremendously. The two are  now inseparable. I think they are enjoying growing old together. I was glad to be able to give her a home. They enjoy being out in the pasture all day from sun up to sun down, then coming in and enjoying apples, corn, oats and hay before going to sleep for the night in their cozy stalls. They are enjoying these cooler days.
