That means two things. First, I reference this thing at least once a week, and my husband still has no idea what I’m talking about. Second, I am full of bright and hopeful energy, because autumn is, objectively, The Best Season in the Midwest.
Here are some things I’m loving this week.
Every year, probably in September, I splurge a bit and place an order at Sock Dreams. The quality simply can’t be beat, and as a person who wears skirts year-round, warm over-the-knee socks are necessary. And the fact that they’re beautiful sure doesn’t hurt.
This year, as part of my canning CSA, I got…12 squash. Six butternut and six acorn. They’ll keep a long time, but storage has become a bit of an issue. Good thing it’s decorative gourd season…
- Writing thank you notes
I really like writing notes and sending them in the mail, so the fact that I just had a big party at which thoughtful people brought me presents is awfully handy.
- Stocked pantry
Speaking of the CSA, I also canned two bushels of roma tomatoes this year. I did a combination of whole tomatoes, puree, sauce, pizza sauce, salsa, and pickled. Here they are in all their splendor.
- Oh, PS, I got married
