Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Wild and Wooly!

It's been a wild and wooly day here in NOTL.


Everyone's wearing big, luxurious sweaters...





and while the wind has been rattling our brains...



I've been hiding out in the kitchen making 
Silky Cauliflower Soup.




I've gathered in almost all of the herbs from my garden 
to make a herbed white wine vinegar...




and roasted banana peppers to have with margherita pizza...



I'm leaving the basil to make pesto sauce with next weekend.

At the risk of sounding boringly repetitious...

I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!

  1. I can hear the wind and feel the chill.
    I can smell the soup and feel the softness of the sweaters.
    Hot banana peppers, roasted! My favourite.
    I love this time of year too, and this year, this fall is my new year, my heart sings!
