The fireplace gets a wreath every season Fall is my favorite it starts the season’s off.

I too love these old discussions because each year we can all add to them--and they just get better with more input. Also, I am absolutely batty and enthralled this year, 2022, because it feels like the first time the holiday seasons that take up the last three months of the year can really and truly be celebrated. (I still wear a mask in public and will continue to do so, but I am also looking forward to all the seasonal events and things that will happen this year.

So, last Saturday, the first of October, I got out my autumn decorations. The porch is decorated, the bookshelves, the coffee table are all done with gorgeous faux pumpkins, leaf garlands, wheat, autumn-colored silk ribbons, and more. It's all so glorious and wonderful and I am thrilled to be able to go to a couple of local pumpkin farms and stands.

Work is having a kind of Halloween potluck and I spent several days cruising recipe sites for ideas on what to bring. I wanted to stay away from sweets--oddly, I find the overwhelming amount of sweets in these final months to be nauseating so I was looking for savory and something that didn't require an oven. I finally found it, a Halloween Meat and Cheese Board. Sounds both fun and delicious even if the bony hand will be missing on mine.

Yes, autumn, bring it on!

It's like reading an eight year old newspaper to me! We're all different :)
