I know it is fall because there is a pumpkin outside my door. It called my name over and over again until I picked it out of the big pumpkin box at the grocery store. At first I thought I'd cook it, but then I saw my trusty spider all alone in the flower bed and thought they might enjoy a season together.
Other fall things are occuring too. In the last two weeks I have baked three lemon pies, two apple pies and one chocolate pie. I've also started cooking stew.
Oh, the leaves are starting to fall too.
