It's a Beautiful Morning

Each morning gets more color as the sun lights the leaves. I can't really capture it, but it's really beautiful. We are having a delightful fall with many pleasant days. I cleaned my front door today and dressed it with a basket of flowers (silk).

It is amazing how pink fits in with the scheme of things.

When the season changes there are special things to eat. Acorn squash with butter and maple syrup is a favorite.

Eeek! A mouse, if only a catnip mouse, in a cage to temp our feline this Halloween.

Halloween Ghost

Here is our big, bad Halloween ghost cat. You better watch out! He will rub all around your legs purring loudly.

Cool weather makes us want to cook. Today we are making beef stew and French bread. I'm hungry already just thinking about it. There is nothing better than being greeted with the aroma of bread baking in the oven unless it is a big smile and hug.

While Rachel was having her car serviced yesterday, we took off for the park with Noah. He loved the slide.

Noah has discovered he can entertain by making faces. He is delighted if you will join him.

On the way home, we stopped and picked up some pumpkins. 

I added white and soft buckskin colored pumpkins to our surroundings for a touch of Halloween.

It was a great, cool, sunny, October day.  Even the big kids had fun.
