RedBarn September Bliss

Very wisely, Nature limits the  allotment of these blissful days between seasons.  It’s hard to get serious about, well, serious things. I’ve got things to do, a chore list.  Savoring the lingering touches of summer and welcoming the autumn morning bite in the air with her burst of glorious sun-soaked color….not on my list.

I’m reminded how precious, fleeting and fragile this pause between seasons is.  If I had to get stuck somewhere on the calendar I’m pretty sure I’d pick this week.  A few tasks await to get ready for the tremendous 3 day art event,  ‘Meander‘, that my family is honored to host at the RedBarn.     Really, it’s great fun to get some autumn decorating done, gather up the pumpkins, make a few scarecrows, plan for family coming to stay with us.     First off, a stroll around the yard to breathe in this rhythm of life we call ‘the present’.

Summer is hanging on, fall has arrived and they both agreed to  share the last day of delicious September  with…. ah, me….and you if you’ve got a few minutes to step out side!

The dumptruck planter made it through summer without getting dumped.  I'm in love with the new duck that arrived on the step this week.
The dump truck planter made it through summer without getting dumped.  Darling grandson Ben was quick to say, “I’ll share my dump truck with you, Grandma Becky.” BIG love for him!  So, how much do we like the stately duck who landed on my front step this week?  New thrift store in my neighborhood!  Hurray!

Whoa!  There's a big Rausch Bros. granite truck by the RedBarn. Delivering the etched stone of Meander artist friend, Liz Rackl.  Oh joy!  Must be time to get back to work!

  1. Beautiful pictures and beautifully written. Autumn is my favorite time of year. It is so inspirational.

    1. You just let me know that you want ‘candles for Christmas’….like you did! Thanks, Donna! I have been shipping, meeting friends if they are close, dropping off, even accepting invitations to stop by at places of business so candle shopping can take place at break time. I’m so happy that you love the candles as much as I do! New holiday scent list coming very soon and you will be hearing from me!
