Dona Nobis Pacem~Peaceful First Day of November

Nature’s peace on the Tiny Ten. A fire in the chimenea with the brilliance of Fall colors all around us.

A little MissouREE wine can’t hurt either…Right? Some Babybel cheese. Hickory scented smoke curls around us. Boot and jeans weather too! We shared the afternoon with the Nuthatches. Their little faces remind me of tiny mimes but there is nothing silent about them as they “YakYaKYAK” and work the bark over on the Oaks. We can hear their birdie feet up and down the tree, their beakers stuffing sunflower hearts under the bark.

Hundreds of Autumn colored leaves let go their tight grip they had all summer and let themselves do a leafy version of a faceplant all around us on a perfect peaceful first day of November. I was a little envious of their carefree “letting go” and their whirly twirly dance to the ground.

Grant Us Peace

  1. Beautiful header Pix…..and all the words and photos are truly the epitome of what peace is all about……an exhale….an inhale of the aroma of the woods and of course a bit of wine and cheese in front of a fire to remind us of all we have and wish for. Well done my dear friend!

    Hugs, Pam (and Sam too of course!)


  2. Lovely. Simply lovely!!! It was a perfect fall day here yesterday until the wind kicked up to unbelievable strengths. Today looks almost still right now so we will see if it turns out to be as wonderful as I hope it is.


    1. CH has shoveled to the road one too many times(he has a unique technique) before we got a clue and started parking a vehicle at the end of the drive when BIG snow is coming. We also now have a snowblower because worrying about him shoveling was putting a strain on my heart.. πŸ˜€ Getting rid of all the leaves is a way bigger PIA than snow!


  3. Wonderful πŸ™‚ and boots well you and I and boots πŸ˜‰ such a serene setting but I also know it’s hard work isn’t it..serene is usually after or before mayhem and hard yards ..have a great peaceful day πŸ™‚ hugs Fozziemum xx
