1. The crisp autumn air and dreary rain hasn't dampened anyone's spirits. We all welcome the cooler air and rejoice in the fact that it now feels like fall.
2. Pink applesauce! A little surprise that happens when you cook the apples with their skins on and then run them through a food mill. Mari asked for "more pink" during dinner.
3. I cooked a dinner befitting the season: roasted pork tenderloin with butternut squash and red onions roasted alongside, fresh greens beans, applesauce and dinner rolls rounded out the meal. We haven't eaten this combination of foods since last winter so they all seemed fresh and new for us to enjoy.
4. I see a little blond sprite go running and laughing down the hallway. She is sans clothes and diaper after just having a bath. A few seconds later her mother and aunt come running and laughing after her in a "catch-me-if-you-can" game.
