Saturday Night!

Saturday morning dawned with clear skies. We were just sitting down having lunch when in through the door came Laurie totally unexpected. She had told me a few days before that she couldn't make it out this weekend. She decided to come after all and surprise me and what a surprise it was. It made my day!

The pumpkin.....I cut the rotting section out. It was on the side, and then made a false section out of tin foil to hold the stuffing in from falling out of the hole. It worked perfectly. I must say that I was well pleased with how it turned out as was everyone else. So that with a big salad and olive bread made a wonderful meal. Triffle for desert which was darn good as well.

It turned really mild during the evening, warm enough to open windows. The wind was very high, howling around the house and making the trees sing. It was a perfect setting for the evening.

The cat in the hat.


Goblets.


The table.





The stuffed pumpkin.


Two of the crazy friends, lol.
