We made the trek out to the hills of Los Angeles this weekend for an awesome pumpkin carving party my cousins were throwing. What a fun, lovely, festive day! Ellie thoroughly enjoyed the pumpkin patch (climbing the hay bales), bobbing for apples, the puppies (yes, they had puppies!) and the incredible array of food and desserts. It was a lot of fun for all of us and so very nice to catch up with cousins, family and friends, whom I hadn’t seen in quite a long time.  Sunday was spent mostly lazing about. I got some early morning writing accomplished sipping tea on the porch. There was some cleaning and some laundry sprinkled in and some dancing to the Beatles and Otis Redding albums with Auntie Lindsey. A new garden was planted (I’ll talk about that in more detail sometime this week) and we ended the evening with Daddy reading books with Eloise and Mama getting some reading in as well (I’m reading Irving’s  Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, just in time for Halloween). It was a lovely weekend all in all. How was yours?

  1. You have the most lovely weekends, Summer. That was my first thought. My second thought was why doesn’t Ellie have a sweater on? It’s October, she must be cold! And then I remembered that you live in Southern California. 🙂

    I love the picture of you and E on the swing. ❤

    • Oh my! It was hot that day. The weather is a lot cooler down by the beach where we live, but this was LA and Los Angeles is always hot! 🙂 Thank you for reading friend!

    • why thank you! We are homebodies all week long and with me at home, Jeff working from home and my SIL who lives with us still looking for work, we take the weekends seriously around here and get out! 🙂

  2. OH! that mug!! it looks perfect for a cup of coffee … tea … cider … chocolate … pick you poison (or indulgence)! hmmmm … i’m feeling a bit covetous
