5 Hours 'til Bedtime post is up, go check it out! We made our way to a pumpkin patch two weekends ago, it was loads of fun. Pumpkin patches are not something I ever had any experience with growing up with in Hawaii! This one had doughnuts (the main reason I was there), cider, corn, and corn mazes, a little country store....it was all very cute - I got a jar of elderberry jelly, which I'm very excited about. Also a jar of spiced peaches. Doesn't that sound so 'Farmer Boy'????
Online cool stuff this week:
Chocolate chai cake with pumpkin and brown sugar frosting. WOW.

18 spine tingling books to read this season.
Apple cheddar scones.
Sooooooo.....I'm doing this with my hair. BIG life changer decision. A LOT more to come on this topic because I have a ton to say about it!
Cool Book of the Week: 'All Hallows' Eve : A Haunting Companion' by Gibbs Smith is a recent find that I thought was super old-vintage-Halloween-style cool, which is how I like my Halloween fare. It's got a little bit o' everything! Lots of short tales and poems from classic literature by writers like Poe, Thomas Hardy, Shakespeare. The black and white illustrations are immensely charming and hauntingly lovely - and the cover is beautifully cloth bound. This one would be great to read as a family on a dark night, sipping hot cider and holding a tiny apple hand pie. Shall I continue on with my fall night fantasy? Ok! There would be a plaid blanket involved, candy corn, popcorn, a fire, and twinkle fairy lights. I'm getting a little dizzy from the picture I've created in my mind....maybe homemade caramel apples? My mother once made caramel apples when I was about 7, and it was the greatest Halloween of my life.
