A lovely long weekend..

We started a yearly tradition last fall. Each September, we have an outdoor final blueberry picking, fire roasting, s'more making, pot luck, wine/giant beer event here at the farm. But what to do when it's pouring rain and blustery outside!!! Well, you grab the wine and giant beer, run inside and bake the s'mores in the oven!
I also discovered, for those of you that may not know, that cold left over s'mores the next morning are equally delicious as the night before.


A quick decor enhancement for my soiree. Jute twine wrapped around tea lights with cinnamon sticks or bay leaves.

Signs of fall in the yard. The blueberry bushes are turning red. The apples are falling to the ground. The acorns are ready - I love their little chapeaus.

My sweet kitty Jake. He's about 18 and is not well. Sigh.
