Today is the first day of FALL. Lets celebrate. I love fall; I love the cool weather, the colorful leaves, the smell of a fire, the friskiness of the animals, baking, festivals and sweaters., and I love pumpkins!! They make me happy. We always go to this huge pumpkin farm and buy some to decorate with. They have some that are ginormous. We grab a wheelbarrow and fill it up!'t forget the S'mores either. What is fall without the magical camp food?? Magic Hot Apple Cider!!!! Can you smell it?? Chili!!! I love making chili when it is cool outside. I make mine from scratch, how about you?

I love fall for all those reasons too! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Even raking the leaves! Thank you for all the pretty autumn pictures to drool over! Oh!--and I have to add that a great fall twist on s'mores is to make them with gingersnaps instead of graham crackers. Very yummy and a little spicier!

Happy first day of fall to you too!

The smell of burning leaves, well manicured grass of a football field, popcorn, hay rides, corn ready for the harvest and deep blue skies all remind me of years long past, a simpler time when mom and dad made sure that there was food on the table, clothes on our backs and our biggest worry was if our pig would place in the county fair.
Alas, those times are gone and not likely to return.
