{phfr} almost winter!

 Pretty- Heavy frost on the sundial in the garden. This may be the closest we come to snow this year!
 Happy- Butterscotch brownies for the farm children, homemade raspberry cordial for the farmer and I! I made the cordial using our raspberries, and it is a blast of delicious summer time flavor!
 Funny- A (blurry) Stuart with little people on his fingers. He walked around for quite a while with them on his fingers, and was showing them to all his siblings. He thought he was pretty funny!
Real- Do your toddlers ever scribble in their older sister's school books? Mine does. Not very often, but when he does, he does such a thorough job! He also appears to be ambidextrous!

Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter for another round of {phfr}, capturing the contentment found in the ordinary. This contentment in the ordinary is comes very easily to me right now, during these quiet days of almost winter! I spend my mornings schooling my children, my afternoons baking, cooking, knitting, reading aloud. It is very pleasant, especially after a summer and fall of sheer busyness! There is such contentment in letting each day find it's own rhythm, without the usual hustle and bustle! Cozy, peaceful winter.

  2. We're making brownies today too. I found somewhere online that today is National brownie day. Any day is a good brownie day :)

  7. Any mention of raspberry cordial makes me think of Anne of Green Gables :)
    I'll have to make some next year. We have raspberries in the garden, but making cordial didn't occur to me.
