Overnight the day got dark an hour earlier. Frightful gusts of warm wind make the leaves dance and twist high in the sky, on the ground they swirl at my feet.
Three children who can be the best of friends - but not always - gathered together for a little carving party at the kitchen table. In the evening, three jack-o-lanterns appeared, two at the front door, one out the kitchen window.
The weather is stormy and I've already seen two trees down. Fingers crossed & prayers for safety all around where this storm is passing through.
The children are excited about parties and friends Thursday evening.
On the menu tonight - pumpkin soup (recipe soon I hope!) and homemade bread. I'm trying out a new recipe tonight for foccacia with olives & sun-dried tomatoes, and rosemary. The dough smells so good!
