Hope all is well in your part of the world..
For the first part of my post I would like to wish our sweet daughter, Shonda a very happy birthday..
Seems like only yesterday she was six months old and I was out sheltering her in my coat and walking in the rain.. smile..
Time has flown but how blessed we have been to call her our little girl...
We are thankful to God for her and her sweet family..
Tomorrow is Shonda's birthday but also the final day of the little House of Henry being opened..
I really am not sad to be closing but will miss meeting all of you sweet people...
It has been fun but I am looking forward to enjoying my Summers down here by the Bay of Fundy without worrying about being at the shop..
All good things must come to an end.. smile..
We have been busy doing pickles, pickles, pickles..
Sweet Garlic Dills..
Tomato and Apple Chutney...
Just to mention a few...
Also, we change homes on Monday..
We leave our cottage and it's old kitchen and two floors and go back home..
To once again being all on one floor and some more modern appliances..
I must say I look forward to my dishwasher and more then one bathroom.. smile..
One thing I miss when we move home is the Bay...
So love seeing this at the end of our street and opening the door and smelling the salt water..
I really enjoyed my stay here this Summer more then usual because I was not taken up with the shop..
Looking forward already to next Summer and freedom to putter away down here..
But home beckons us..
Usually, this time of year I can't get back home fast enough but it is a bit bittersweet this time..
I must go through my house and get it fresh and clean as it has been empty now for 3 months..
Doing all the Fall things that we do..
Like visiting this old place..
In the Fall we go here for a day or so a week and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather way back in the country..
I know this is confusing for the new followers of the blog.. smile..
The old farm is our getaway in the Fall and Spring and then we spend the Summer here at the cottage..
We are not a couple who likes to take trips but putter around here and there in our old places..
Nothing fancy but enjoyable for us..
Home is where your heart is and one place our hearts belong is at this little country church...
Although, we enjoyed our Summer our hearts are glad to return to our own church and the precious families who attend there..
God has blessed us with being able to attend church with our daughter in the Summer and then our sons for the rest of the year..
Well, my dears that is all for now..
We move home on Monday and the Internet won't be plugged in again until Thursday so we may not connect again until then..
Thanks so much for visiting and I look forward to hopefully slowing down a bit and checking up on you all more faithfully..
Love your comments and may God bless you ...
