Just a quick post today, as we're off to Lancaster's Central Market for a few provisions. Although the main mission today is acquiring some just-picked summer sweet corn, it's likely we'll come home with other goodies as well - we always do; stuffed grape leaves and homemade pita bread from the middle eastern stand, orzo salad from our favorite gourmet place (can't remember the name just now), a few deli goodies for John, and whatever other fresh picked produce looks like we can't live without. Oh - and sunflowers - a must have.
Much as I love summer's bounty though, this is the time of year when my thoughts turn to autumn. I start seriously anticipating cooler days, hills on fire with color, pumpkins appearing at local farmstands, the scent of woodsmoke as we drive through the countryside, sweaters and scarves, homemade soup simmering on the stove....I could go on and on.....When it comes to a feast for the senses, it just doesn't get any better than autumn.
No surprise at all that my anticipation is making it's way into the latest eBay offering, shown here. Lots of falling leaves on this one, a maple leaf closure, and inside the box I've lettered "Must be the season of the witch..."
Indeed - just a few short weeks!
In the meantime, I'm off to enjoy a bit of summer. Wishing everyone a happy and creative weekend. Back again in a few days.......
