Already a day late on this one, sorry folks! Thanks for your encouragement during this long stretch of the little ones’ colds, fevers, asthma, etc. Benjamin is feeling much better and after taking Miss Lucy to the MD yesterday, found out she’s got an ear infection and that her cough/fever is just from the little bug we’ve been passing around. I really appreciate your prayers
Coming Up in the Liturgical Year: Next Saturday is the Feast of Sts. Andrew Kim Taegon, St. Paul Hasang, and the Korean martyrs. Our dear friends Joseph and Helen contributed a great post to Feast! last year with an introduction to this saints as well as recipes for some amazing Korean food to celebrate their feast day. Bulgogi!
In the Garden: Some microgreens are coming up (radish and kale) and we’re still getting peppers from our summer garden. Also, we’ve got these matching gardeners in their watering uniforms:

Of course, trying to write a novel using Austen’s characters is mighty risky. But this Austen fanatic is 60 pages in and loving it!

The fact that I haven’t shut the book out of Jane-loving fury for daring to use the Pride and Prejudice characters speaks volumes. Have you read it? What did you think (without spoilers! I’m only a few chapters in!)?
Make Your Own Play Teepee: A Beautiful Mess (I love this so much. I want to make one with a different fabric for Benjamin for Christmas! I’ve been trying to figure out how to make him a reading nook, but there’s not a good spot in his room. This would definitely work, though.)

My feet have shrunk over a full size since before I got pregnant with Lucy. Isn’t that the opposite of what should happen?
I received this charming copy of Anne-with-an-e in the mail yesterday. A surprise birthday present from a dear, dear friend who knows me well. Aren’t suprise packages one of life’s greatest joys? I wish I weren’t so bad at sending them.

I hope your Saturday is autumnal and wonderful
