Good morning! I hope that your week is going well. The sun has been shining and things are starting to look a little like Fall and sound like it too; the crunch of the leaves makes me smile as I take my morning walk. The weather though is back in the 80’s and humid so I do not know when I will be smelling the first fire of the season wafting on the crisp air.
None of that is stopping me from adding a few pumpkins to the decor but I think I had better stop soon, otherwise people will think I am starting a farm stand in the house.
Although I prefer the white, pale green and pink pumpkins I find myself drawn to the orange ones too. They remind me of many happy times with my siblings. We always had a carving contest a few days before Halloween, and were so proud of our little creations as they were lit on the porch for all of the trick or treater’s to see.
My mom always roasted the seeds and made delicious pumpkin treats for us to eat.
Every once in a while I still make my husband carve a pumpkin or two with me to set on my own porch. As for roasting the seeds, mine never turn out the way I remember.
Are you a big Fall decorator? Or do you prefer to save your energy for the up coming holidays?
I was reading in a magazine recently about people that begin decorating for Christmas the day after Halloween! I LOVE Christmas but that is a little to early even for me.
I want to savor the sights, sounds, and flavors of the harvest.
My pup is not really into the holidays, can you tell? It could be one of two things, we don’t share the candy corns or she doesn’t want to be dressed as a hot dog again.
I would love to see your Fall decorations or recipes so do share your links so that we can find them.
Have a great day!
