On things Octobery

fall produce

Fresh produce at Rosedale Farms and Vineyard, where I visited today for a magazine article I’m working on.

This is the latest offering at one of my favorite watering holes – a Shipyard Pumpkin Ale with cinnamon and sugar on the rim. Nom.

One of my favorite exhibits at the Big E – the 4H farm-contest entries. This pumpkin-as-turkey was particularly cool.

Costumes. Wearing our nerd on the outside.

I learned recently that my niece, The Bean, is considering ‘kitty’ as her Halloween costume. It’s very exciting to watch her independently choose a costume to wear, and I’m sure when her cultural lexicon expands her choices are going to get even more intriguing as time goes on.

I wonder if she knows I once went trick-or-treating as ‘mouse,’ or that her father looked exactly like Pete Wentz when he was nine.

I looked at the calendar in my iPhone today and I thought the settings got scrambled somehow. Oct. 20? Really?

My favorite month is whizzing past me at break-neck speed. I’ve barely had time to stop and document the moments – but here are a few.

The Spoils:

The Food. Stuffed pork loin with spinach, cheddar cheese, apples, and garlic; homemade apple sauce; apple stuffing. Nom.
