Tasty Tuesday

Mmmm, pumpkin!  I love pumpkin in baked goods, scones, muffins, bread, donuts, pie (especially pie!) This week seemed like a good time to whip up a batch of pumpkin scones with a few tart cranberries thrown in for good measure.

They turned out great.  A nice little treat for those rushed mornings.  Thanks for stopping by, I'll talk to you again soon.

Monday Musing

Delicate strands glistening in the morning light.  A quick capture while on a walk with my girl Heather.  Her sharp eyes saw it first.

More fall color at the local park.  Chokecherries were ripening, a feast for the soon to be migrating birds. I'm so glad you stopped by, I'll talk to you again soon.

Monday Musing

This past week I spent a few hours in the company of family in this quiet spot where we each spent part of our childhood.  It was beautiful and familiar and wonderful to reconnect with people that I love so deeply.  So much time has passed since we had all been together in this place.  We were missing a few of our beloved but being together here brought back sweet memories and gave us an opportunity to create new ones.

Fall is starting to settle in, the water was cold but the children and dogs enjoyed splashing and chasing each other around in it.

I'm already thinking about how I can get back before winter moves in.  I want to dip my feet over the edge of the big rock one more time and splash sparkling drops up into the air just for the fun of it, to dream about spending a few days under the trees listening to the wind moving through the branches and the sound of the water rippling over the rocks, to sit on the porch and breath and make a promise... next summer.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll talk to you again soon.

Monday Musing

I went looking for some fall colors and shapes.  I found a few.

The air is a little cooler and the wind a little brisk.  I can smell green chili roasting as I pass some of the farm stands in the area.

Things are drying out and letting go of their seeds for next year.  The big trees are just starting to change color.  I'm planning a little drive to the mountains in a few days.  I hope to see more fall colors then.  Thanks for stopping by, I'll talk to you again soon.
