{Soulfood Fridays}

Every Friday I'll be pausing to notice something from the week that has nourished my soul.
A special, sacred-everyday moment captured on camera, or perhaps a snippet from a book, a recipe still warm from the kitchen or something whimsical that simply made me smile. 
Here are a few simple things that have fed my soul this week.

Our first log fire of the year.


This poem from this book.

Some thoughts on Summer storms
Opaque clouds sieve golden leaves of light to damp earth.
Summer's last gift.
I watch the rain with my yarn basket close by.
Woolen threads weave through my fingers
And fall to cloth on my knees.

A cuddle just when needed. 

 What has inspired/fed/nourished your soul this week friends?
Feel free to link up to your own soulful spaces either at the bottom of this post or in the comments.




  1. You had a fire, inside your home?!!! Gosh, I would love that, but we are still months away. Today was a heat index of 102. Hey, at least we are down from 117!
    It is raining here as I type and I am enjoying the sound of on roof. I hope it lasts until bedtime so I can hear it as I fall asleep.
    Happy weekend.
