Getting in the Spirit

This is what I have been looking at at work for over a month. Don't get me wrong, I love them. I love all the funky varieties, colors and textures. I just wasn't ready for pumpkins when they showed up early this year.

With a friend coming to town I finally got in the spirit this weekend and decorated my table for Fall. I kept it simple with mini white pumpkins, sunflowers and carnations. I am not into the pumpkin spice candles, but got a fireside candle instead. Fall table Fall table Fall tablescape

 I'm still not feeling all the pumpkin flavored everything that I see on pinterest. I am more of a gingerbread person, I suppose.

I jogged today after three days off.  It feels so good, and I don't like it when I miss days.  I was off Saturday and my main agenda was to go trail running.  It was too dang cold and windy.  We were having our December weather in October, and I'm so not ready for that.  Fall is my favorite season and I don't want to rush it.  Lets slow time down and enjoy this.  Yesterday was perfectly sunny and in the high sixties.  My favorite weather.  Ahhhhhh

Pretty table decor!

Pumpkin gingerbread might be good. Almost as good as pumpkin cheesecake.

Really lovely. Was this for Bird? Did he appreciate it? Excited that you're coming.

Janet, I was actually going to say that I love pumpkin cheesecake. That's about the only pumpkin dessert I make. It does have gingersnap crust though.
