Yesterday started out rainy...
so I used the opportunity to do a little Fall decorating.
I filled every available space with pumpkins...
put out a few favorite Halloween pieces...
and rearranged a wall in my kitchen.
"Mom's Baking Co." sign arrived in the mail,
so I rearranged to make things fit.
The sun came out around noon,
so we headed out to bring the horses back from the upper pastures.
Playing ball was the dog's opportunity to blow off a little steam.
You might notice Sam... he grabs Oakley around the hips every time we play ball.
Sam is not interested in chasing balls...
he'd rather spend the time annoying Oakley!
When afternoon chores were finished,
I headed out to get some pumpkins.
There is a woman down the road who grows all types of squash yearly.
She has a wagon filled with pumpkins that are available by honor system.
I've heard that the proceeds will go towards her grandson's college tuition some day.
My pumpkin patch was cursed yet again...squash beetles.
I have come to the conclusion that growing pumpkins and squash organically
is impossible here... we are over-run with squash beetles!
I saw this wagon along the road while out and about...
Mums for sale.
I am so happy that finally my stovetop is installed and working.
To celebrate, I made a pot of stew... nothing better on a chilly fall day!
PS...it's quite obvious that my dogs cannot read!
