It's nearly Autumn and October. Yeah!!
The weather has been cooler here during the day and chilly at night which to me is just wonderful. And we're already seeing the edges of leaves beginning to change color. I am in the mood for everything pumpkin and even found a pumpkin salsa! I'm so ready for hearty stews, college football, bread baking and hot casseroles.
We have an annual Fall Party and dress up in costumes every year which is always lots of fun, I think this year is our 11th or 12th consecutive annual party! We had fall parties on and off before that too!
This year I'm a little behind getting our costumes together, I usually start weeks earlier than this, but this year we had an Under the Sea Baby Shower to host, a new barn to build (which isn't 100% finished) plus trying to keep up with the vegetable gardening, canning, stocking firewood for winter, (and hay) feeding livestock and raising a pig.
Last year I wrote 2 blog posts about previous costumes we have worn, made or someone wore to one of our parties.
