Baked Beans and Brown Bread

Guinness here.  Here is me at my little cabin deep in the woods!  Do you want to go for an Autumn walk with me and Maggi?  Well c'mon!  What are you waiting for!

 It has been a spectacular Fall with an abundance of color and radiant splendor.

 The leaves just seem so extra, extra beautiful this year.  And the air has been so sweet and mild. do you think Mag-Pie  is quite happy today?

 We start off down the trail.  But then it starts to pour.  And I mean cats and dogs!

 C'mon, we will have to tuck into the wood here and wait it out.  Can you squeeze under the tree with me?

Look. it is a grey ol day but when the rain dies down all the colors seem extra intense.

 Well, since I am already wet might as well go for a dip!

 Maggi would like to show you how pretty the marshlands look behind her!

And I would like to show you how big and handsome and rugged I look in the mist!  Hehe!  Don't I look just like an ancient hound of Irish lore?  GROWWWWLLL---hahaha!

 We have been walking for 3 hours.  My human said she got a bit of a chill in her bones.

 We walk through the magic looking glass to find the hidden, magical cabin.  My human had made a fire and now the cabin is as warm as toast.  You can imagine how exquisite it is to step into that piping hot cabin.

 And I have worked up quite an appetite.  Food please.

 And a drinky too!

We decide to stay the night.  It is too cozy to even think about leaving.  Don't worry, there is brown bread baking in the propane oven, and a crock of beans to warm up on the wood stove.  Oh--your bunk is waiting for you in the little loft bedroom upstairs.  Sweet dreams.


  1. So peaceful and soothing to the soul.
