Easy Peasy Sunday

After a last weekend's fun family gathering, we settled for a more quiet weekend this week.  Saturday had us on our usual errands.  It was the last Saturday of the Farmer's Market and the pickings were slim.  We did score some more cool pumpkins and a beautiful mum plant.  A trip the orchard had us bringing home apples for eating and baking.   After finding and exploring a new store with good bargains, we stopped and picked up some Chinese chow for lunch and headed on home.  The rest of the day was spent in the yard.  Trees were trimmed, flower gardens cleaned out.  We did some burning of branches from some trees we had removed and then worked on the haunted cemetery for the Halloween party in 2 weeks.  (You are all invited!)  When I hit the hay I felt like I was actually hit by a bale of hay!  Today we just rested after Church.
This pie had the house smelling like apples and cinnamon.  The day turned dreary as rain came in and gave us a lovely soaking.  Great time to take a nap!  Afterwards I wanted to go to the real cemetery in town and put some new flowers on Jack's parents grave site.
The trees in the cemetery are almost all in fall pretty.

The days are getting dark earlier so we took off for home.   All in all it's been a nice weekend.  I feel like we accomplished lots of outdoor work and also had time to just chill and enjoy this Fall day.  It will pass quickly.   So take time to do some leaf peeping or apple baking! Catching a cool sunset is good too.
Night all!

Hi, YaYa!

Mrs. Shady and I shopped at our local farmer's market this week and picked up some giant size apples, red and yellow pears and those large round gourd squash. She baked the squash, sliced them in half and filled the centers with honey and brown sugar. They were delicious. So were the large apples. I eat one after every meal for my dessert. The flowers you put on Jack's parents' grave are beautiful, so attractive and right for the season. I look forward to many pictures of your colorful autumn leaves in upcoming posts. We are still sweltering in the heat down here and wishing you could blow us a cool front.

Thank you very much for your weekly update, dear friend YaYa, and have a great week!

Thank you for sharing your fall leaf pictures with us. I fear we won't be seeing much of that in Phoenix. Seems like it was a very nice weekend for you :)

Nothing gives a home a more pleasing aroma than apple pie baking in the oven.
We had a low-Key weekend. We have a pile of limbs I need to burn but we're under a no burn ban.
Have a great week.

I'm excited to see your Halloween party posts. It's nice to enjoy these warm/fallish weekends. It's not too hot and not too cool.
