Weekend matters

Pete spent Sunday morning rolling in the sunshine.
Pure bliss.

I took pictures of the colors at their peak.
Autumn leaves were reflected in the windows of our house.We took a quick drive to Montrose, PA, to a stone wall overlooking a field. We like to sit here, and fantasize about what it'll be like when we own the sweet farm in the valley like this one.
Jen and Corrine and I cleared the garden, piling the spent bean plants and tomato vines on the compost heap.

I took home our fennel, which found its way into this vase, with five yellow nasturtiums.
I made an abundant dinner with sweet potatoes, apples, butternut squash, onions, and green tomatoes.
A big, hearty Sunday night dinner feels like starting the week off on the right foot. Along with the squash soup, we had fried green tomatoes, dill pickles, fresh bread, and my first homemade cheese experiment. Yes, homemade cheese. And that was a satisfying weekend.
