Although I am not a baker I had some pumpkin to use up, so I did. I made these wonderful Pumpkin Scones with Ginger molasses glaze. Yummy. Not sweet at all, which is what we like around here. Paul couldn't stop commenting about them and had the willpower to only have one. He has a fitness goal in mind and is doing so well in keeping with it.
I also made some pumpkin bread, which we haven't tried yet. I wrapped it and put it in the freezer. It smelled wonderful as it was baking. The scent of cloves and nutmeg filled the house. Ah, the smells of fall.
The weather is indeed growing colder but no need to disconnect from nature. Not at all. I made Athena a garden to play with through the long cold months ahead. So far she has used her Wee Felt Folk and her horses to walk along the mossy banks, dip their toes or hooves into the waters and walk along the stone paths. I got the idea from The Magic Onions blog. Lots of good Waldorf ideas over there to be sure.
And lastly, I leave you with these pictures. It is what was occurring as I walked to pick her up from school. Beautiful.
