Suddenly, I realized I should use the autumn decorations - what am I saving them for? In my roasting pan is a squash that was enormous - probably almost 18" long, 6" wide. The shell was coral colored, and the flesh bright orange. Pretty, right there in the midst of kitchen work.
But I want to change my tune into Advent because I am still lounging in autumn. Seriously, some of that squash went into a pumpkin pie! And I still have to tell you about my favorite dish at Thanksgiving.
Today I realized that I have not gotten our Advent calendar out yet, nor am I enthused about Christmas cookies or trees. Ben wondered if we were getting a Christmas tree today - um, no, it's easier to just do Saturday work around the house.
