October light in the morning is guilded and burnished.
It has a timeless quality.
Turning everything it touches into a work of art.
Even these old dried roses I had casually placed by this unfinished window, suddenly become breathtakingly beautiful.
I have been waking up late this week. Luxuriating in the late morning sunshine streaming through the windows. Maggie waits patiently to be let outside.
We have been working hard this week; me, packing things for storage.
He, stacking wood.
He took this week off work.
It's his 'vacation'.
But he loves stacking wood.
He loves the solitude and fresh air.
He says it clears his mind.
It makes for a good night's sleep.
I love having him around.
We've been enjoying these lovely October mornings.
A true luxury that we enjoy now, in the 'Autumn' of our lives.
Something we never had raising 4!
And something we really cherish.
We have been busy all week with our tasks, but the mornings are just for us.
So, while we say goodbye to summer and start to prepare for the colder months ahead,
We take some precious time to enjoy the lovely October light.
A reminder of these lanquid Autumn years we are sharing together.
Enjoying each other's company.
And counting our blessings as we share the simple things in life.
I hope you are enjoying October's beautiful light
and sharing the simple things in life with those you love
