It's Raining!

Now it really seems like Autumn since it has rained for the last two days.  Fun to be able to sit down to a nice warm apple tart and a hot cup of tea!

Welcome to my house, Oma

Autumn is here!!

According to the calendar it has been Autumn for over a week now.  Autumn is the time where all the summer things are put away and one prepares for cooler weather.  I always have a hard time giving up my ice tea and switching to hot tea but when I see my pretty teacups it makes the transistion easier.

I have been reading a series of books by Susan Wiggs called The Lakeshore Chronicles.  My sister gave me the first book "Summer at Willow Lake" and I enjoyed it so much that I rushed to the library to get the next "The Winter Lodge".  Now on to the third book "Dockside" and cannot read fast enough to find out how all the characters are progressing in the storyline.  Susan Wiggs writes about real life situations such as house fires where everything is lost, but those situations show people do continue on to find happiness in life.  If you are looking for a nice book to curl up with try reading her books.

Welcome to Oma's House and I hope you will enjoy your visits with me.
