Love it! Love it! Love it! Did I mention I love fall? Although we live on a corner lot in a modern subdivision, this is the scene from our back patio: corn, glorious corn, getting harvested by a big red IH combine and into a blue cart attached to a green and yellow (of course) JD tractor which is then augered over into a semi to be hauled off to the grain elevator. I am amazed how much farming terminology I've learned just living here. Twenty years ago I wouldn't have known where to get milk out of a cow! That all sounds so folksy. Actually, I am much more at home in the city, but it is somehow comforting to watch all this and know that some things are still done the "old-fashioned" way.
Inside, the comforts of fall mean lighting candles because it is no longer so hot that even a candle is unwelcome. Today I am hosting a little get-together and had fun making Halloween cupcakes as well as pumpkin cobbler from scratch- served warm with whipped cream, homemade macaroni and cheese with peas and mushrooms, cold cider and assorted cheeses and crackers. Tomorrow means football and chili in the crock pot. Yay!
