Welcome Fall, my favorite time of the year! I’m not a pumpkin everything person…I am only a pumpkin seed person. The girl was in in the mood for pumpkin pie and today she made her first ones from scratch. It would have been cheaper to buy one from the store but she was game….so I went with it. I forgot to take a picture of the pumpkins before roasting but here was the after….
We thought for sure we did something wrong? This was not the color of pumpkin pie? Now we know….the color comes from the spices. It was extremely watery when she poured it into the pie crust…..again we were worried. It turned out okay in the end. The girl now has to work on subtle knife testing….no stabbing the pie.
I also made some apple crisp in the middle of the girls pumpkin experiment and my book page pumpkin making. PT ordered four this morning so I was in the kitchen all day. If I wasn’t at the kitchen table working on the book page pumpkins, I was helping the girl, peeling and coring apples, or doing dishes. I think we have the fall smell down and I get to eat my first batch of pumpkin seeds.
I couldn’t find the same leaves that I used last year so I used these neutral berry sprays. I was aiming for whimsical? PT liked them, hopefully her friends that are receiving them as gifts will like them too?
Last night KB had her Lemongrass Spa party and it was a huge success! I really needed it to be so I am very excited about that. I left my house without my phone which I have never done. It was strange but I survived. I used KB’s phone for a calculator when needed. It was a tad unnerving on the way home….it was dark…what if I had an emergency? I pass deer everyday and that worries me the most…even when I do have my phone. I made it home without any problems thank goodness.
All in all it was a pretty good weekend! I even set my dates for my pop ups at my favorite coffee shop for the season. These might be the only three events that I do….Zia
