Just as if I wrote the script, South Texas has welcomed fall with cooler breezes, clouds, rain and football.  I am breathing deep the experience.  This is a very busy time for my family.  Everyone was in town this week for a football game and shopping.  Perhaps, what is most important is that we wait “not so patiently” for the arrival of a new grandson.  If he does not come on his own before Wednesday, then he will arrive with some inducing!  I cannot think of a better way to usher in fall than with a baby.

On Saturday, we made homemade pumpkin donuts with the grandchilden (Thank you Joanna Gaines for the recipe in her new Magnolia Magazine).  They were delicious and fun to do.  While shopping with my daughter, we stopped for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, of course.

Pumpkins are beginning to arrive on the scene everywhere.  I am still waiting for the cooking pumpkins which I will roast, puree, and freeze for breads and pies.  I did this last year and it makes such a difference.  I have to thank the Pioneer Woman for that PUMPKIN PUREE RECIPE.  The flavors are deeper, richer than pumpkin from the can.

Well, you all know how excited I am about my fall clothes!  I hope to show you some of the actual, lighter weight, fall looks I will wear this week.  Of course, with everything happening with the family, blogging may be a bit sporadic this week, but I will do my best to keep things interesting and helpful.

What are your favorite things about the season…the food, the clothing, the color, the decorations….or all of it!??  I have a random slide show below that we will just call ODE TO FALL.  Have a wonderful day and………………………………………………………………………………

KEEP SMILING!
