or so says The Shmoo! We spent the day with a good friend doing " Fallish" things. That included visiting 2 local farm stands looking for the perfect pumpkins and feeding a few local pets. We took only back roads, got lost twice, and had the loveliest day!
J and our friend carved pumpkins while I cleared off the table so that we could actually eat dinner at the table! We all ( even the wild 4 year old who would rather be playing than eating) gathered together, and enjoyed a hot meal of pot roast, mashed potatoes, and fresh asparagus. We finished it off with locally made pumpkin pie!
The weather was beautiful, the leaves were well worth peeping, and the company extraordinary! I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such beauty, both in the place we live and the friends we have.
These are the outcome of today's carve-a-ton. We have a mama and another baby that need to be carved, but that will have to wait for another day.
May the beauty of the season bring you peace!
