This weekend was the end of Farmer’s Market season. It seems odd that it actually runs this long, but the last two weekends were, truthfully, perfect market days. The weather was perfect and the crowds were big. This weekend? Not so much. The weather was chilly. No, cold. Not surprisingly, only a small few had farmer’s markets on their agendas. For sure, all attention has turned to the holidays. Goodbye market season….and hello holiday season!! Even for me. My spirit is slowly starting to build. I tend to drag into the holiday season. I’m not a grinch but, in my brain, “the season” means only one thing. Winter!! I’m not a fan!
But here’s to the start of a beautiful Thanksgiving week! The little ones in Junior Church yesterday were just so excited. Their joy was rather contagious! And I think they jumpstarted my holly jolly:) I hope when people spend time in my presence – my attitude is contagious. And, I pray that attitude is one of joy, or of quiet contentment, or of wonder and gratitude of all God’s goodness. You get the idea. That truthfully is my prayer.
I hope you will come back on Wednesday and Friday – and that your Thursday in between the two will include an extra piece of pie. Or two! Speaking of pie, tomorrow night is Prayer, Praise and Pie (yes, pie!!) at church. I’m wanting to take “a new” pie. At least one new to me. Any great suggestions? What is your favorite pie! It’s not pie but if you need an extra dessert this week – or might want to bless your neighbor or surprise a co-worker – I would suggest Pumpkin Roll. The trusty recipe right on the pumpkin can or you could use this one (which is super close). I had a couple of the older Junior Church girls over to the house on Friday and we made these desserts. What a fun afternoon we had:) And the pumpkin rolls were delicious!! Always a hit! We gifted them at church tonight and received a lot of smiles:)
Happy Monday friends! Have a beautiful day –
