Beautiful Fall Day

Good Morning All ~~
Hope everyone one is well and content in
their little corner of the world.
We are blessed today in Connecticut with another
Beautiful Fall day.
The air is cool, the grass is green, there is a smattering
of color on some of the trees, and pumpkins
& mums are showing up in most yards I pass.
My most favorite time of the year.
I'm home today so I'll put a pot of stew on the stove, and
an apple pie in the oven. I have a busy week-end coming
up so today will be my only day at home for some chores,
and time in the kitchen.
I spent last Sunday in Woodbury with my friend Cathy
celebrating 350 years of the quaint town, there were
historic houses to visit, a civil war encampment,
crafters dressed in period correct clothing demonstrating,
and selling their wares, delicious food, and
lively music.....a wonderful Fall day out in the country.

Hearth Side Cooking
The women were roasting chickens, bean soup, potatoes
and breads...they explained that all the volunteers
working in the house that day, would sit down later
for supper and enjoy the food, and fellowship

I hope each and every one of your can get outside
and experience this most wonderful time of the year.

Hi Connie,
So good that you and Cathy had a day out at Woodbury. I know she really enjoyed it.
We're having gorgeous weather here on the Cape too. I can't get enough of it. There are still folks sunning themselves at the beach during the day. It's that beautiful!
Hoping I might get to your shop the next time we're down.
Take care,
