The ladies from The Knitterati of Virginia, the yarn loving group whose company I enjoy so much, paid a visit to The Farm this weekend. I had envisioned a lovely day on the porch, but wet, damp, COLD weather sent us indoors instead. I'm not quite sure that it was worth the 2 hour drive for these gals to sit around a kitchen table for hours, but they were as kind and positive as I have ever known them to be. 
My mother was able to join us for a spell and I was happy for her to meet my friends.
And make new ones herself.

The Pumpkin Soup, inspired by the beautiful blog From Beyond My Kitchen Window  was a hit. The author's gifted hand at photography has me determined to find lessons.

I did indeed try my hand at 'knitting' with Marzipan.



Meanwhile, out in the Garden, Ma's Ray lent a hand digging up the sweet potatoes.

Double Yum.

Your land is so beautiful, have I told you that? The other day I spent at least half an hour looking over your blog and loving your home improvements, your land, your life.

Sweet potatoes are so delicious! I've never thought of eating them like a baked potato, though. I will have to try this!!

Hi! Alli sent me. Your posts are beautiful and remind me that there is weather in other places than just where I live (rainy southwest Washington state - think Portland). I hope you won't mind if I check in once and again.

Allies' first friend :-)

wow all those sweet potatoes yum yum.

We are having brilliant weather high 20's Centigrade all this past week and hopefully into next, had to get my summer stuff out again.

And yes you can be jealous

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a thoughtful comment.

I'm just beginning over again with my knitting, but am looking forward to the winter months in my rocker with something to knit. :)
