Focus on Life - Week 44

Ummm... The prompt this week was Saints, Souls, Sugar Skulls or Scares.

Now, Halloween isn't a big deal in our house - not since the kids have grown, anyway.

But we do always have one on these on the doorstep, so the Trick and Treaters know they'll be welcome :)


But to me, this picture captures the spirit of November...


Last weekend we changed the clocks in the UK, so it gets dark earlier and earlier. The temperature is dropping, and certainly, I for one, get into hibernation mode...

Warmth and shelter are paramount, and knowing all are safely gathered in around the fire brings me peace...

Claire your fireplace looks cozy and inviting. I can see why you chose it for your photo.

The fireplace looks so inviting! Best part of the season is that cozy feeling we create in our homes.. and the food.

I don't decorate like I used to since our kids are grown. But I still like Halloween. I miss having a fireplace but I don't miss the mess of hauling wood and cleaning it. Maybe a fake one is due for us. We changed our clocks back last night,

Oh, I want to come sit by your fireplace. It looks so warm, cozy and inviting. I can see just sitting there, sipping some tea and enjoying the warmth - lovely post!!
