A simply beautiful day here in Atlantic Canada..
The sun shone brightly and we had a real frost last night..
There was ice in Sammi's water dish out on the deck early this morning..
Then the day turned into an Autumn dream..
Drifting leaves and the scent of wood smoke in the air..
The sound of the neighbor's power saw and crows chattering to each other...
Inside the smell of mustard pickles and baking bread..
We had quite a few large cucumbers from the garden and we just could not see them go to waste ...
They are a favorite around here, too.. smile..
Putting away some apples...
Apple Crisps for the freezer and slices for the dehydrator..
Terry grew a wonderful crop of little pumpkins..
A few bigger size but a bunch of little ones..
Just lovely for setting here and there just to brighten up a few nooks and crannies.. smile..
And a bit of baking...
I can't seem to help myself on these cool days.. smile..
I forgot to take a pic of the finished product..
Broiled Coconut Frosting..
The loveliness of a Sunflower with a blue sky and maple leaves..
These spell Fall to me..
How about you?
And I am just about to say good bye to my pickle pot until next year...
Just a couple more batches of this of that..
I have been looking for a recipe that I lost...
One of my dear friends had it and when I called her she was so kind and gave it to me..
And then I lost it once more during the move home from the cottage..
So I called her AGAIN for it...
Yes... now she has lost it .. grin..
We are certainly two of a kind..
Imagine what we will be like in a few years..
We probably won't recognize each other..
We can become new friends..
Yes, I read that somewhere... grin..
Does anyone have a recipe for mild hot mixed pickles???
She and I would appreciate it.. grin..
Well, it has been a lovely weekend thus far...
Hope you are having one, too...
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day..
Let's enter his gates with thanksgiving and enter his courts with praise; give thanks to him and bless his name..
Thank you so much for popping by my dears..
I am so glad you did... smile.
Hope there was something here to interest you...
I love your comments and do hope to hear from you..
