Such a beautiful month, October!

Up here in the Northwest, just about now, our gardens are in full-bloom.

Yes, we really do have to wait this long.

But all around town there are beautiful signs of fall emerging, too.

Just yesterday, this little pumpkin asked to go home with me. :)

I said, "Yes," of course.

Another thing I love about October is making pumpkin everything--Play-doh, pizzas, soup, crafts, and chili.

Last night we had these waffles for dinner.


They were excellent with syrup, a dollop or fresh whipped cream and chopped pecans sprinkled on top.

It was like fall on a plate.

And if I'm missing summer,

I have only to go sit on the little bench in my garden

for this spectacular view.

I have been lurking like a crazed Mommy just hoping I could see a glimpse of those little darlings :-)

Have you tried the recipe for the chili Jenny? We have a potluck on Sunday and I think it would make a great fall dish.

I wish our fall looked so pretty. Our gardens and flowers have all frozen over by this time.
