On parts of the trail, you are surrounded by mountains.
This place gives such a feeling of serenity.
In the summer you can sit out on the lawn at the Jordan Pond House and enjoy popovers as you gaze out at the view of the Bubbles.
We are so fortunate to live very close to this place and are very grateful to be able to enjoy it numerous times throughout the year.

And a very lovely day for a trip to spend some time with my Mama.

that ended up as this simple bowl.
We always have leftover scraps of clay that are too soft to throw.
Pottery making is definitely not for the impatient.

Unfortunately, this was where I made my mistake this time. The recipe called for just 2/3 cup of the Libby's 100% pure pumpkin . . . not the entire 29-1/2 oz. can . . . Oops!!!
That's why it wasn't ready in the 13-15 min. at 375 degrees, baking time. And that's when I realized my mistake. So it cooked for say, 40 minutes, or so. I don't know why I just didn't stop right then. Thinking I could salvage it, I went on to the next step after I took it out of the oven, which was to roll it up while it was still warm, onto my waiting kitchen towel and let it cool on a rack.
The next step was to unroll it and add the cream cheese spread to the top.
And then roll it back up and stick it in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic for at least an hour.
This is where I had planned to insert the final picture, with a couple slices displayed that would reveal a perfect swirl of filling for you to oooh and aaaah over. But instead you get this.
Pumpkin pudding, slightly warmed because even the microwave couldn't fix it.

So I added this pretty piece of aqua sea glass.
A tiny, wool evening bag perfect for a chilly coastal night out on the town.

He also finished tucking in Fearless for the Winter.
A post stacking, pre-shower glamour shot I took of myself, very happy to be finished!
And it's still daylight with plenty of time left to enjoy this beautiful autumn day in Maine!
Our burning bush is still vibrant.
As is this maple tree.
