With biscuits and breakfast tea on the porch.

The air is brisk this morning. The song of the morning is filled with the sounds of the Mockingbird, my favorite, Bluejays-chasing one another, House Wrens fussing – maybe I’m near their nest, and Crows…an interesting sonet.

Beautiful little puffy clouds lazily skip across the sky – vibrant in their color as the rising sun’s rays cast light and shadow.

Crabapple Jelly Porch Breakfast adelightsomelife.comSitting here, I’m enjoying the view and making lists. Are you a list maker? I have quite a few things I’d like to accomplish this week both in the house and in the garden.

breakfast biscuit and jelly with tea adelightsomelife.comI have one little Crabapple tree. It was full of tiny red Crabapples. I’d promised Dearest I would make jelly. Washing, cutting the apples, removing stem and flower end took quite a while. Boiling the apples to produce a pinkish juice filled the house with the fragrance of apples.

breakfast tea chintz china adelightsomelife.comI followed this recipe ~ I loved this site ~ it gives a link to images detailing what sheeting looks like – which means you have jelly! I added a couple Cinnamon sticks to give it a little spice. Dearest loved it!

crabapple Jelly adelightsomelife.comWill I make Crabapple Jelly again ~ considering the volume of work to make just a few small jars? Yes, I believe I will – it is a delightful treat and some things are just worth the effort.

My Bliss for the Week:

Crisp Autumn mornings

Time with siblings

Estate Sale Finds

Something I’ve been wishing for a LONG time

Funky pumpkins

I know these things are not specific, but if you visit throughout the week, you’ll see what I’m referring to!
