"We are in for a spell of perfect weather now,
every day luminous, every night brimmed
with stars. Picnics at noon, supper by the
applewood fire at night, a walk in the cool
moonlight before bed."
Our weather has been beautiful, but still very warm here. In fact, so warm that I hesitate to buy pumpkins to decorate the front porch. I'm afraid that they won't last but a few days. So, I think I'll wait a bit longer. Surely it will cool down soon.
I haven't bought anything new this fall as far as fall decor goes for the house. I did find some new glassware at a flea market last week. One of the six I bought is in the middle row on the right. I didn't have anything in that amber color and the set was 50% off, so I swooped them right up and off to the checkout I went! They will be pretty for a fall table setting if I ever get myself in gear and have some friends over for dinner. We've been so busy every weekend that having company has been the furthest thing from my mind.
The little plates with the pumpkins are another purchase I made. They came from Wal-you-know-where and were less than 3 dollars a plate.
I also had to buy some caramel apples just for me. I love 'em! When it cools down a bit, I will be making some apple bread.
Also, as soon as it gets cooler, I will be making soup. I love soup, but don't usually make it in hot weather. When we were in Branson and went to the Dixie Stampede where they serve dinner with the show, one of the courses was a delicious creamy vegetable soup. I found a copycat recipe and I will be trying it out. Have you heard of it? Oh, it's so good.
I have a special announcement for Saturday's post, so I hope you'll stop by and see what that is all about. Hope to see you then!
Happy Friday to you!
