The Colors of Home

One of the best parts of the holiday week was the abundance of colored leaves on all the trees.

I wasn't expecting much. I had heard rumors of several big storms, and was sure I'd arrive home to bleak trees and lawns piled with dead leaves.

Instead, there was an astonishing array of color: red, yellow, orange, brown and green. The leaves crunched under my feet and the air smelled delightful -- dry and rich, like toast. There were morning walks, evening walks, and pre-Thanksgiving dinner tromps in the Utah foothills. It is, without a doubt, my favorite time of year.

As long as autumn is on the brain, don't you think we better make this pumpkin curry for dinner? Sean and I had it on Halloween and I promise it's so easy and so satisfying.

I'm heading into the kitchen to butcher our last small sugar pie pumpkin now.

So beautiful! The leaves here are complaining abou thte weather, nothing left like that! When I get back to Utah (hopefully one day soon), I'll be sure to coordinate with you.
