Markets & Mittens

With Matthew back in school full time, I'm taking full advantage of girl time. Megan and I welcomed the official start of Autumn with a trip to one of the last Farmer's Markets of the season. We were practically the only ones there, braving the cold and rain, but it was worth it. We circled around and around, picking up Red Bartlett Pears, Italian Plums, the last of the peaches and nectarines, artisan sausage, flowers and of course a couple macarons. (Thanks for asking; they were raspberry rose and rosemary; yes, they were divine.)

I am in love with this time of year. True, I am not looking forward to another Spokane winter (last one, hopefully!) where things are so frozen and dark that I rarely want to leave my bed. But Autumn brings changing colors, roasted root vegetables, my head-to-toe Patagonia gear, pumpkins, and of course Thanksgiving.....which leads us to Christmas! (And in a mere 20, yes TWENTY days I will be able to go to my very own neighborhood TRADER JOES! Yes, I'm on a daily countdown. )

This weekend I'll be baking apple tarts, carving pumpkins, reading my book, and taking advantage of the breaks in the rain by walking around South Hill with my two favorite guys.

What are you up to?
