A Little Fall Afternoon

While Eileigh was napping during her Quiet Time (love it when that happens), Selah and I decided to go out and enjoy the surprisingly warm weather. This morning for our walk we were fairly bundled up since it was actually quite foggy- a wet, low-hanging fog that Eileigh told me she did not want touching her face. Being as there wasn't the slightest thing I could do about that, she decided to contentedly settle in with her dried strawberries and raisins after a small discussion. By the time we got back home it had already started to warm up and continued into the afternoon, at least mid to upper 70's. So nice! Normally I am a staunch supporter of the low 70's range for weather but today's special also includes a refreshing breeze for the ultimate in Fall perfection. I plopped Selah down on a blanket in the shade and went to browse through the remains of our garden. Harvested what may just be the last of the zucchini and summer squash and five little sugar pie pumpkins. I've had plans for those little pumpkins but they're so cute I'm tempted to use them as decor instead! I'm sure utility will triumph over design as there is a recipe I've been planning to try since I bought said little pumpkin seeds. Savory Pumpkin Ravioli... pasta, pumpkin, creamy sauce... Fall comfort food at its finest (I hope!). I also spied this Lady "Fider" enjoying a meal in the sun betwixt the tomato plants. Eileigh's pronunciation of all words beginning with "sp" is replaced with an "f". So I will have you know that the Itsy Bitsy Fider climbed up the water Fout. :)

Sometimes I wonder if she could be any cuter. I think not. :)

Definitely not. She could NOT be any cuter.
