Mums, pumpkins and A beautiful Fall Day

Mother nature has been especially good to us this weekend. The days have been absolutely gorgeous! It’s like I put in a special order.

The nights have been quite nippy though. So we decided it was time to clean out the coal stove to get it ready. Tonight is going to be in the thirties. BRRR!!

Yesterday I went to my favorite place for pumpkins, mums and corn stalks. They have the most amazing selection with all different colors. I got some orange mums to go with the yellow ones I already had. Got  some corn broom stalks and new scarecrow. I decided to wait on the corn stalks. We got some HUGE pumpkins Saturday at a place where we get our corn and he said we could come up and just cut some down for free! So next weekend we will go up and gather some stalks to finish the fall decor outside. I asked him if he knew where I could get some bittersweet and he told us where there was a hole bunch, but said don’t get caught. I guess you are not supposed to pick them in NY or maybe it's just our county. So, I ordered 2 lbs on ebay and they will be here in a few days. They are full of berries. I can’t wait to get them.

We did a little more decorating outside yesterday. Now it’s beginning to look a lot better. Just waiting for the corn stalks.

Now I have been promising to make something with all the apples we have so I’m going to make apple dumplings. I found an awesome recipe on allrecipes.com. I love using the recipes there as they have feedback from folks who have tried them and if they tweaked or changed the recipe they include that too.

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Fall weekend.

Till next time….
