Hello Charlotte,

Yeah, I am also very happy that Roger Federer won! WooHoo!!!
It must have been nice to see the game live right there.

Oh, I love that feeling!!! Hard work is always good for the spirit, especially when it's get to anticipate all those nights cuddled up in it's warmth!

That woodpile looks familiar! Stacking logs does give one a sense of the pioneering spirit and confident self-sufficiency. The scent of wood-smoke on a chilly day sets my mind toward fall like nothing else.

We were (of course) rooting for Murray, but I'm glad that he got through to the final at all, so congrats to the Fed :o)


What a grand time! That firewood looked a bit daunting, though! Lucky you at the Open!


I'm a huge fan of naps and Federer too! I'm so glad he won and I would have loved to watch it from the seats way up high. How great was that?
The fire wood looks so lovley on that green, lush lawn.


I do love this time of year- time for gathering in the firewood and thinking about evenings by the fire... My daughter found some wild strawberries the other day and used them to decorate her sister's birthday cake, it was just lovely.

As an exiled NYer, I miss Shea Stadium. Watching the Mets when they come to Dc to play the Nats just isn't the same.

Hooray for the little strawberry. We lived in Southampton 100 years ago and I had a prickly unruly bush tucked away in the backyard. Our first year there I hacked away at this poor bush every chance I got. At the end of the summer I discovered a few lush raspberries growing on the bush. Oops, I had no clue.


hi--just found your blog through katie at constant gatherer--beautiful! I was way up at a federer match too (maybe the same one!) and i was super happy to be there! love the us open.
