    Thanks to our trip to the farmer’s market, I have a pot of chili on the stove, pumpkin cupcakes baked and iced, ugly gourds hand-picked by beautiful children, and enough apples to make several pies and crisps. Great weekend here! I hope yours was fabulous, too.

    Atta, girl! 🙂 Busy weekend here. But two live plays were attended, one Harry Potter movie was watched, one pot of chili was made, season three of Parenthood was finished, and many articles were critiqued. Speaking of…back to it!

    Welcome! 🙂

    Love this post! Umm… Vegetable beef lentil soup is in the crockpot, freshly made applesauce is cooling on the kitchen counter, and GW’s Autumn CD is filling the house with vibes. Gas fireplace is warming the living room as we snuggle under the cozy afghans. Thanks for the suggestions. 🙂

    Sounds great, Priscilla. 🙂

    So many fantastic gifts! Maybe we should all pick a few just to gift to ourselves.

    I love to write to George Winston – I have a GW Pandora station and Winter to Spring on my iPod. Time to look for Autumn on iTunes and then prod DH to get his award-winning chili cooking. What a wonderful list of indulgences!
