Yesterday I finished my outdoor 'winterizing'. I transplanted the herbs and plants I wanted to bring in, covered all those potted perennials I hope to save for next year and found a place to store them. The patio table was brought into the kitchen and the patio chairs and other furniture were stored away in the garage. The summer toys were packed up too.
It was busy, but a necessary busy. Now my home looks stark and blase.
While I was doing all those things, Corynn decided she needed to build herself a log cabin.
She gathered the sticks from the woods behind our house. A few random boards made their way in the house too.
She also gathered food to store for winter.
I thought it was supercute. One of those random ideas that pop into childrens' heads. They happily played in that square until I was done my projects. Then we headed inside and each one enjoyed steaming hot cocoa.
Not the first of the season, nor the last.
