"October is crisp days and cool nights, a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book."
Now that's my idea of spending a cool, October afternoon, nothing better than a good book! It's cool here today, a bit windy, but the sun is shining and that makes everything so pretty!
A week or so ago, my husband brought home some wonderful dishes that he bid on at an auction . . . and won . . . he's kind of sweet like that. They are, Mar-Crest Stoneware and I just love them. I already had a few other pieces that my mother had given me. We used them at the cabin when we were kids. Many of them got broken through the years, but I have always cherished the ones that survived. I don't use them as often as I'd like, but, I'll have fun using them this year - I have plates, bowls, cups and a couple of casserole dishes, this really topped off my collection.
My mums love this cool weather as much as I do. I love the little yellow and orange mums. I bought extra for, Memorial Day, planted them, and waited. I really love them.
Something I always do when the tomatoes are ripe . . . I make chili sauce! It's something that we use like ketchup, we love it! It's not hot, but it is sweet and spicy in a very good way. Thanks to my generous son and his wife, we had more than enough tomatoes to make two batches.
Speaking of sweet and spicy . . . this boy spent the morning with us a few days ago. Tanner is just the sweetest, spiciest, little bundle of happiness! We had fun drawing monsters, his latest obsession! And just so you know . . . he's not scared of monsters . . . :0)
Have a wonderful week-end where ever you are! Stay safe...
Hugs and Love,
