The first day of September I was in full autumn swing. I got up early and made two loaves of pumpkin bread. It wasn't long before my family was drawn to the kitchen where the sweet aroma tugged at their appetites. A couple days later I made pumpkin pies and then a week later pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with brown butter maple frosting.
Now I've turned my autumn desires to painting and finally finished "Autumn at the Village Inn". I listed it on eBay last night.
Ester and Joe are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary at the Village Inn in Strasburg, PA where they spent their honeymoon. Taking long walks hand in hand they chat about how God has blessed their lives with family and friends over the years. Sweet memories rich with love and happiness have bound these two together even through the hard times. Their lives are woven together like the stitches in a quilt. Pieces of their lives are sewn to one another forming a blanket of wonderful memories that warm their hearts.
What are you up to this fall?
An exercise program should be high on my list to get rid of all those extra pounds due to all the baking going on around here.
