  1. All in all a productive day. Love your harvest and brunch.

  2. I loved seeing snippets of your day, it sounds like you got lots done. I hope that chimney man came:)

  3. Yay...the chimney man finally arrived...enjoyed all your photos! The 'Christmas tree' is very inspired...I never thought to use the cardboard tubes from toilet paper to make anything. Your veggies are growing nicely. Are the ornaments made of creative!

  4. Veggies seem to be growing well in your place. The last photo gives perspective of your country with long range or mountain..., even the colour of sky is slightly different from ours....

  5. Oh are you getting a new wood fire installed. How lovely. I'm sure you enjoy every cosy night in from now on. I love keeps me at home Maa

  6. You had a fairly busy day, that clock watching will make it take longer though.... Too bad the man didn't finish, I bet you could use a bit of a fire about now! That chunk sure came down with a clunk, Jill woofed at your video!

  7. You are very productive with your time. Delicious home-cooking meal!
