Where did it GO?

It was a long summer, and it was a short summer.  I feel like I got alot done, and yet, I still have a long list of things to do.  Fall is imminent, yes, I said it, and it's true, it is right around the corner.!  The leaves are falling, the apprentice is back in school and I sense a slight change in the temperature.  

My summer has been filled with : The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, Farmers Markets, Rockwood Conservation area, Presquille Provincial Park, the Kilt Run, triathalons, the Fair, Big Rideau Lake, Ottawa Parkway, Toronto, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, Merrickville, Westport, and Scoops in Pakenham, to mention only a few of my many road trips.  But, I am happiest at the studio, working on the many custom projects that weave their way into the fabric of your home and that become the anchors of your family gatherings.  Two special projects for O'Reilly's Ale House allowed for personal creativity along with input from new owners, Dan and Mary Catherine Allatt - and their kind of visible support, where they make an effort to showcase area artisans and food producers, warms my heart.  And, it doesn't hurt that they serve great craft beers!  

So, onward to fall, the season of organizing mudrooms, hockey (or no hockey), canning, preserving, traditional meatpies and warm and cozy fireplaces.
