Pocketful of Sunshine

Normally our autumns are glorious days of crisp mornings, lots of golden sunshine punctuated by occasional gray days, canopies of colorful leaves, and the last gasps of summer warmth in the afternoons.  This year, autumn is still happening, but summer did not want to give up her clutches, so October opened with a mini heat wave.  A week and a half later, it was snowing, before our leaves even changed.  Luckily, it looks like Mother Nature grabbed both Winter and Summer by the scruff of the neck and tossed them into the penalty box so Autumn could get her day in the sun, so to speak.  It's going to be fleeting, so we're darn well going to enjoy it.  This week's grocery bundle included local Macintosh apples, a can of pumpkin puree, Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale, and the last jug of apple cider left on the shelf.  We are eating up the season, and I want seconds.

 More farm fun on the jumping pillow and corn box.

 Zoo Boo
 Halloween craft playdate.  Spork spent a lot of time carefully creating a play-doh spider, then squashed it with a vengeance.  I also got some adorable pics of Spork and Tater together, wish I could show them to you..hopefully just a few more months til her lil' face is legal blog fodder.

Spork was having a major grump session til I got out the rakes.  Behold, the curative power of nature.
