Looking out on a Frosty Morn....

Good Morning my dears...
It is a frosty morning here in Eastern Canada ..
For the last couple of days I have been down with a chest cold.. Ugh... I do not like being sick.. Especially when Fall is here and sooo much I would like to be doing.. Not housework.. Don't get confused.. grin..
Actually, I had planned on starting a bit of old fashioned fall housecleaning this week..
It started out okay but as the week has progressed I have been feeling worse ... But I am sure it will soon be over..
Anyway... I was up very early this morning.... 
And as I have not been doing so great posting I thought you might like to look out my early morning windows with me.. 
I did manage to get a load of clothes on the line yesterday but did not bring them in.. I was reading an old history book one day and read that if the old time housewives wanted to bleach their clothes or get stains out then they left them out over night.,,
I am afraid I was just forgot about mine.. smile..

Looking out my kitchen window... The hay fields are covered in frost....


Here we are looking out back at the hydrangea and apple trees..
This is our living room windows..
Frost everywhere...


And here we are looking out of the family room window at the front of the house...
Don't you love the old house across the street there?
Old Lucy Keith used to live there.. That is how everyone refers to her here... Our house is located in her apple orchard..
We did not grow up here in this village... Terry and I went to school together and were high school sweet hearts,, This little village is only 15 minutes from where we went to school ...Terry grew up on a farm just 10 minutes from here while I grew up in Salisbury where we went to school...
We did not know Lucy but have heard so much about her.. Her family built this house and we bought it from them..

See the frost...The hostas did well this year, too..
Well, dear ladies, I need to go and get something hot to drink..
Honey and lemon juice, I think..
Don't worry .. I already had my coffee and had a chat with my Lord... He is lovelier than this Fall morning... eh?
Look... the sun is up...

The view from where I am sitting writing to you all...
The leaves are turning...
Thanks for dropping by and welcome to the new followers of the blog.. So glad to have you...
Looking forward to hearing from you all...
God bless....

  3. Dear Faye, I'm so sorry you're under the weather... hope you feel better soon.
    I love the beautiful views from your home... we've only had one good frost so far, but it was enough to start the leaves changing.
    Take care and rest yourself today.

  14. Sorry to read about you not feeling well. Hope the lemon and honey help.
    Beautiful pictures. I love how the old house is still referred to by the original owners name. We've had lots and lots of old houses.... but they were never ours :) People always referred to our old houses by the original owners names.
    Makes me smile.
    Maybe one of these days, in 5o years or so, our house will be known as our house :)
