After scouring Craigslist for months and never finding quite the right table, I came across this table on Houzz. It is by Kincaid Furniture and is the Homecoming Table in Vintage Pine. We do still need to either find a new bench or paint our old one black to match the Windsor dining chairs. I think we will probably paint it and see how it looks for now.
Autumn is certainly a season of change. We can learn a lot from how beautifully a tree lets go of its leaves, still standing strong in its roots.
At home, we are slowly getting used to our new path. Billy has begun his new security job and, although it is an adjustment, it is going well so far.
Even the rainy days in the Adirondacks are pretty in Autumn...Salt Fat Acid Heat - have you seen it? The chef/host is so warm and approachable and I loved it so much that I went to the library to borrow her book of the same title. I am about halfway through the book and feel like I've learned some really useful tips about cooking from her. Highly recommend.
