It's a cold morning!!

Just right for a big bowl of oatmeal...

with cinnamon, chopped pecans, blueberries....

and a splash of maple syrup.

This morning is our first frost. It was 29 degrees when I got up, brr!!

Yesterday, I made pumpkin pies.

First time from scratch. It was a lot of fun!

I love the brown spices.

Hope you're all staying warm and enjoying the fall season!


  1. Brrrrr is right! I had to go out and douse my mums so they wouldn't shrivel up and die! This kind of weather makes me want to sit in a cozy chair and listen to an audio book while I work on sewing or handwork projects. Oh, wait, that's what I'm doing! :) Your pies look great! I have two pumpkins waiting for the same treatment.

  2. I love pumpkin pie. i was just thinkingg about making one today! I love this time of year with the coller weather and cozy meals!

  3. i just noticed my spelling

  4. The pie looks great. How did it compare to ones you have made with canned pumpkin?

  5. It was good, though not as orange in color, makes me wonder if they add food coloring to the canned pumpkin. I need to taste a canned pumpkin pie to compare, it's been awhile. :)
